What Are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are removable dental prostheses designed to replace a few or more missing teeth in an arch. Normally, removable dentures are of two types: complete and partial. Complete dentures are for those patients who have lost all of their teeth. They depend entirely on the support on the jawbone to withstand chewing forces.
On the other hand, partial dentures utilize the support of the jawbone and the surrounding healthy teeth. This makes them more stable and provides better retention. Our Houston, TX experts design partial dentures with acrylic or metal framework such that the chewing forces are evenly distributed throughout the arch. They fit comfortably, and you can easily remove them for cleaning purposes.

What Are The Benefits of Partial Dentures?
The loss of one or more teeth causes an array of oral problems, from chewing difficulty and speech disturbance to uneven smile aesthetics. Additionally, tooth loss also induces bone deterioration and causes adjacent teeth to slide away from their original position in an attempt to fill the empty space.
This is why partial teeth in Houston recommended at our facility for immediate tooth replacement is considered best. These dentures utilize the adjacent teeth as anchors and prevent them from shifting. Replacement with dentures also fills in the missing gaps, making your smile appear more aesthetically pleasing.
A major advantage of wearing a partial denture is that you can eat normally, as they improve the biting and chewing experience. Since they are removable, you can take them off easily for hygiene maintenance.

How Long Does The Process Take?
The procedure of getting custom-fit partial dentures at our Houston, TX, practice is easy and time-saving. During your first visit, we will take dental impressions of your upper and lower arch. We will also record the natural bite of your teeth to design the prosthesis accordingly. If the supportive teeth are carious or damaged, we may perform restorative treatments in advance to improve their strength.
The impressions are sent to a lab where it may take 10 to 14 days for the fabrication of your denture. When we receive the denture, we will have you return for a second appointment, where our dentist will check it fits in your mouth. The final steps may involve some adjustments to match the natural occlusion.
