The occurrence of missing teeth may necessitate the placement of partial dentures to help you regain your smile. Partial dentures can greatly benefit patients who have lost multiple teeth in one area and need to fill the resulting gaps between the remaining teeth. A partial denture is both functional and removable, and will change your life in many ways.

Concept Dental offers custom-made partial denture that are designed as a pink, gum-like foundation that supports artificial teeth. When placed in your smile, the appliance can clasp to the neighboring teeth to keep it firmly in place. Wearing a partial denture can affect your life in the following ways:

– Your dental appliance may feel awkward in your smile at first until your mouth adjusts and accepts it as part of your natural teeth.

– Try inserting and removing the appliance a few times until you feel comfortable with the technique and can manage it easily.

– Following the placement of a partial denture, our dentist can offer specific instructions for proper partial denture care. One thing to keep in mind is to avoid biting down while you are placing the denture in your mouth. You may need to wear your partial denture for a certain length of time day and night when you first receive it.

– Eating with partial dentures is different than chewing with your natural teeth, and you should ease into it with soft foods eaten in small bites until you are comfortable enough to confidently eat larger and solid foods.

– You may experience some initial challenges with speaking, and we encourage you to practice. You can read aloud and repeat any tricky words that your denture makes difficult to pronounce until your tongue is used to it.
