Why Partial Dentures Need Support to Stay In Place
Posted on 8/20/2018 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
One of the most viable options for those with missing teeth is partial dentures. These devices are designed to fit around the teeth and still look and feel natural. Most partial dentures are made of an acrylic/porcelain base and metal clasp. These materials ensure that the device looks natural, while providing the necessary support for chewing and speech. They are considered to be more stable than other alternatives such as complete dentures. These advantages are mainly due to the device's ability to stay in place and provide the required comfort and stability. Why do Partial dentures need support to stay in place? How Dentures WorkThere are different types of partial dentures, but most of them have two main parts in common. The device is made up of artificial teeth that are attached to an acrylic base designed to look like your gums. The artificial teeth are molded from an acrylic or porcelain resin based on the shape of your teeth and gums to ensure a proper fit. The final design of the partial denture is based on the impressions of your natural teeth and gums as well as the nature of your bite. Attaching Dentures to TeethA metal clasp holds the denture in place by attaching it to your teeth. However, based on what our dentist's assessment will be, you may need to have your teeth reshaped. This happens when it has been determined that the neighboring teeth cannot provide the required support to ensure that the dentures stay in place. The teeth are reshaped to ascertain that the metal clasp will attach properly to the anchor teeth. The nature of this mechanism is that it can be removed frequently and still be as stable every time it is fitted back into the mouth. It is important that the partial denture fits properly in your mouth. Over time they'll need to be adjusted if the jawbone or gums shrink. Do you have any question on partial dentures?
