Getting Partial Dentures

Posted on: 14 April 2016


If you are missing some of your teeth, then it's important for you to know the benefits different replacement options carry so you end up getting the right tooth replacement for all your needs. Partial dentures are one of the choices you may have to choose from and this article will explain some of the benefits and other aspects of going with them so you have a better understanding of what you can expect to get out of them.

Dentures can be budget friendly

If you have a smaller budget to work with, then you may find that some of the other tooth replacement options are a bit out of your price range. However, dentures are known for being more affordable. Also, if you only need to replace one, or even a few teeth, then they will cost even less than full dentures for people missing all of their teeth.

Dentures are not painful to get

People who decide to go with implants get to enjoy their own list of benefits, but they will need to go through a fairly painful procedure to have the implants put in. However, those who decide to go with partial dentures can enjoy the fact that they don't have to go through this type of procedure. You will go in and have an impression taken of your mouth as well as x-rays and possibly pictures. Then the dentures will be made in a lab to fit a mold of your mouth.

You will need to go back in to the dental office once your dentures arrive and make sure they fit you properly. It is common for there to be small areas on the dentures that need some adjusting, but most times the dentist will be able to do this right in their office. However, larger fitting issues may require the dentures to go back to the lab and this means you will have to come back again once they have been fixed. The great news is, once you leave the office with your partial dentures, they will fit right and give you a great replacement.

Caring for your new dentures

Dentures are easy to care for. Take them out before you go to bed and clean them with denture approved paste, then rinse them and put them in when you wake up. However, be extremely careful each time you have them out, so you don't drop them. As durable as they can be, they can break quite easily if you drop them right onto a hard surface. 

Partial dentures are a good, non-invasive, and affordable way to have one or more of your teeth replaced.
