What Can You Expect from Removable Partial Dentures?

Posted on 4/25/2016 by Keith M. Cooper

What Are Removable Partial Dentures?

This appliance will consist of false, replacement teeth that are connected to a gum-colored base. It will typically consist of a metal frame and clasps in order to connect to the rest of your teeth. In some cases, precision attachments will be used instead, and these specialized devices tend to look nicer than metal clasps.

What Should You Know About Removable Partial Dentures Before Deciding on Them?

If you are considering removable partial dentures, it is important that you know what to expect with this system. These are a few of the most important facts and considerations:

•  It may take a while to get used to your removable partial dentures. Initially, they will feel bulky and awkward, but you should eventually get used to having them in your mouth.
•  You'll need to be patient when it comes to inserting and taking out your partials, as this will take some getting used to. Initially, it may be messy to take them out of your mouth, but as you gain experience you will get better at it.
•  Your dentist will likely ask you to wear your dentures at all times. While this might be uncomfortable initially, it is the easiest way for your dentist to identify problems and areas that might need to be adjusted.
•  If you experience sores on your gums as a result of your dentures, it is important that you talk to your dentist. It is likely that the fit is off and too much pressure is being put onto a particular area. Your dentist can make an adjustment in order to help them fit more comfortably.
