Why Choose Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are an effective solution for those who have lost multiple teeth but still retain some healthy natural teeth. These custom-made dental appliances are designed to fill the gaps in your smile, providing support and stability that help preserve the remaining natural teeth. Here’s how partial dentures can benefit you:

  • Restorative Benefits: They help restore your natural appearance and improve your ability to speak and chew properly.
  • Preventive Care: By supporting your cheeks and lips, partial dentures prevent facial sagging and further oral health deterioration.
  • Aesthetic Improvement: Custom-designed to match your natural teeth, they enhance your smile seamlessly.

Understanding the Partial Denture Process

Partial dentures typically consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by a metal framework. These clasps and frames help secure the denture in place, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Initial Consultation: Dr. Montano will assess your oral health and discuss your options, ensuring that partial dentures are the right choice for you.
  • Customization: Impressions of your teeth will be taken to create dentures that are tailored specifically to fit your mouth.
  • Fitting and Adjustments: Once your dentures are ready, you’ll visit our office for a fitting. Dr. Montano may make necessary adjustments to ensure optimal comfort and functionality.

Living with Your New Partial Dentures

Adjusting to partial dentures can take some time. Initially, they may feel awkward or uncomfortable, but this discomfort typically subsides as you get used to them. Here are a few tips for care:

  • Proper Maintenance: Follow Dr. Montano’s instructions for cleaning and maintaining your dentures to extend their life and maintain oral hygiene.
  • Handling with Care: Avoid damaging the clasps and your natural teeth by ensuring that you do not force the dentures into place.
  • Regular Check-Ups: Routine visits to HSM Dental Group are essential to adjust your dentures as needed and to monitor your overall oral health.
