A partial denture is essential for even distribution of bite forces and stability of opposing dentures and adjoining natural teeth.
The Removable Partial Denture is customized to a patient’s specific requirements. Removable partial dentures restore a person’s natural appearance and greatly improve the ability to chew and speak clearly.
Partial dentures is not intended to harm remaining natural teeth. A partial denture may prevent your natural teeth from shifting or drifting into the space left by the tooth loss.
In fact, a partial denture may help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support.
With a partial denture, you’ll look better, feel better and chew better! Your partial denture is an inexpensive solution to the problem of missing teeth and is designed to comfortably fill gaps left by missing teeth.
The number of teeth remaining, the position and the stability of the teeth are only a few of the factors that help to determine what style or type of partial denture would be best for you.
Depending on the teeth remaining in your oral cavity for anchorage, partial dentures may be completely tooth supported, tissue/tooth supported, and implant/tissue supported.
Partial dentures can be constructed out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic or flexible thermoplastic. The design process involved in creating a removable partial (denture) is specific to the patient’s needs.
At Riverview Dental Care Ltd, Every effort is made to design a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral structures.Retentive clasps around your natural teeth may be necessary to keep the denture in place and ensure stability in the mouth.
When a partial denture is designed, the Dentist, acknowledges that chewing places a strain on the remaining teeth during eating. Partial dentures are designed with this in mind so that the chewing forces can be distributed evenly over the entire arch of remaining teeth and soft tissues to preserve and prolong the life of the remaining natural teeth.
Design modifications to your remaining teeth may be required to help equalize these forces. Any adjustment of this nature will be carried out by a Dentist or working cooperatively with you to provide the best possible outcome for you - the consumer.
Partials can be made of different materials, including acrylics, a metal/acrylic combination or flexible thermoplastics.
Acrylic partials are usually recommended as a transitional or temporary replacement of missing teeth, depending on your personal circumstances.
Metal partials are considered stronger structurally, thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial, but the technology involved impacts on the cost thereof.
Metal Partials are made with highest yield strength chrome-cobalt alloys to cast our partial frameworks resulting in smaller, thinner partial framework and more resilient clasps.
