Dentures and Partials

Dentures and Partials

Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing and partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain. Partial dentures are attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, connected by metal framework.

Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments, which are generally more aesthetic than metal clasps and nearly invisible. Crowns on your natural teeth may improve the fit of a removable partial denture, and are usually required with attachments. Your dentist at Country Center Dental will help you determine which type is right for you.

Your dentist will work with you to adjust the dentures to enable them to fit more comfortably, as it may take a while to become adjusted to them. Difficulties with speaking initially can occur, but can easily be overcome with practice.

Your dentist can also provide recommendations on caring for and cleaning your denture.

Dental implants may be an alternative to the use of a denture, but not everyone is a candidate for implants. We will advise you if an implant is an option in your case.
