What Is a Partial Denture?

A partial denture is one that does not take the place of all upper of lower teeth. Most people who have partial dentures only have one to three missing teeth. When a partial denture is well done most people will never know you have one.

A partial denture is made out of acrylic or metal. Every patient’s needs are different. The custom specifications to which we create each partial reduces the probability of your other teeth or gums being affected.

Most patients prefer metal partial dentures. An acrylic partial is normally only used temporarily and is not usually as aesthetically pleasing. Metal partials by their very nature are stronger. Therefore they are able to be made thinner which is more appealing to the eye. Shuayb Dental will discuss the length of time in which you anticipate needing a partial. We will then discuss your options and let you make a decision about what you feel is best for your needs.

Speech and Eating

If you remember what it was like as child to have a missing tooth or are currently missing a tooth you understand how much it impacts your speech. A partial denture will allow you to regain your natural ability to speak clearly.

The loss of a tooth or teeth will almost certainly affect your ability to eat food. Few people understand how carefully calibrated a partial denture has to be in order to allow for pressure to be distributed evenly across all teeth. When a person is chewing, equal pressure distribution is critical to keep you from experiencing pain. Shuayb Dental has the dental technology and experience to ensure you get a partial denture that is right for you.
