Partials denture in Socorro, NM

Partials denture in Socorro, NM

A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that is custom-designed to fit a patient’s mouth. Partial dentures can replace multiple missing teeth, but they cannot replace an entire arch of teeth. Instead, they are made to fill in gaps. Regardless of whether a patient is missing a few teeth or all of their teeth, partial dentures may be a great option for restoration.

How Are Partials Made?

Partial dentures are removable dental appliances. They are used in dentistry to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They are generally made from a combination of metal and acrylic, although newer options can be made from flexible nylon. Partials are attached to the adjacent teeth with metal clasps but can also function like a bridge, with crowns covering the teeth that anchor the partial in place.

Our dentist may recommend a partial denture if you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth. We may also recommend this dental appliance if you have teeth that need to be removed for health purposes. 

What Are the Benefits of Partials?

  • Partials restore a damaged smile while also protecting neighboring teeth against further decay.
  • They act as both restorative and cosmetic restorations.
  • Since they are supported by a metal framework, they offer excellent strength and stability.
  • The prosthetic teeth can be customized to match the appearance of the adjoining teeth perfectly.

How Long Will Partials Last?

Like crowns, partials are a permanent solution to a dental problem. They are custom-made to comfortably fit the patient’s mouth. Unlike temporary dentures, partials will not move around in the mouth. Partials can be made from different materials, including acrylic, metal, and porcelain. The material that the partial is made of will determine its longevity.

Acrylic partials are more affordable but are also less durable than metal or porcelain partials. Metal partials are very strong and will last a very long time, but the metal is more visible at the gum line. Porcelain partials look the most like a patient’s natural teeth and are strong and natural-looking.

Can a Partial Denture Be Repaired?

Absolutely! No dental restoration is too big for our team. If your partial denture is cracked, broken, or missing a tooth, we can fix it. This usually requires a simple repair that can be completed in one appointment.
