Partial dentures are artificial replacement teeth that are commonly used by people who have lost either one or several teeth. Partial dentures are the kinds of dentures that are placed into the mouth and removed at will. These dentures are carefully crafted to resemble the color of your gums and teeth.
If you are interested in partial dentures in Saskatoon, the first step is to schedule an appointment at our dental clinic. You can do this over the phone, or you may stop in and schedule if you’d like to see our clinic first.
How do Partial Dentures Work?
The way that it works is pretty straight-forward. Artificial teeth are attached to a denture framework. A partial denture will then be attached to your remaining teeth with a clasp that is invisible to the naked eye. Please note that partial denture manufacturing is not a one-day process. Rather, it takes about a month-and-a-half to two months to make them.
Of course, the time it takes to create partial dentures varies from patient to patient. One of the main factors in determining the amount of time it will take to manufacture a partial denture is the kind of dentures you want. At Fresh Dental, we use the best techniques in creating partial dentures so that our patients can get them and use them as quickly as possible.
The Process of Manufacturing Partial Dentures
Before the denture is made, we will need to prepare your teeth that will be used to support the partial denture placement. Then, we must obtain an accurate measurement of the lower and upper arches of your mouth. Once the desired fit and appearance are obtained, we can then send your dentures to a laboratory where they will be created.
You will be pleased to know that Fresh Dental takes every step needed to ensure a proper fit. Still, eventually, some adjustments will likely need to be made. Also, it takes time to get used to your partial dentures because the feeling of having them in your mouth will be unfamiliar to you. Indeed, adjusting to life with partial dentures will be a process for you. It can take several days – even several weeks – to get used to wearing partial dentures.
What are the Disadvantages of Partial Dentures?
One of the biggest complaints that people with new partial dentures express is changes in eating and speaking. The truth is; you will probably need to practice doing both of these activities with your new dentures in before you really get comfortable with them.
