 Partial Dentures

Missing teeth don’t have to hold you back, especially with easy and effective options like partial dentures from Thrive Dental.

What Are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth. Typically, they are made of metal and acrylic and consist of artificial teeth, a plate that holds the teeth in place, and a clasp or attachment device that secures the dentures to existing natural teeth.

If you have lost teeth in an accident, because of tooth decay, or for any reason, partial dentures can provide a relatively easy, non-invasive, and affordable solution for restoring function and aesthetics. You have options, and our dental experts will discuss each so you can make informed decisions.

At Thrive Dental & Orthodontics, we are committed to helping people obtain the function of natural teeth and a smile they can be proud of. Led by Drs. Christine and Nathan Coughlin, we provide state-of-the-art dental and orthodontic services you can rely on in a friendly, relaxed environment designed to take the dread out of your dental appointments.

FAQs About Partial Dentures

Before you decide to get partial dentures, here are some common questions about them, and answers that may make your decision easier.

What Types of Partial Dentures Are There?

The types of partial dentures include:

  • Metal removable partial dentures: These are typically the strongest partial dentures and designed for long-term use.
  • Acrylic removable partial dentures: While less strong than metal dentures, acrylic dentures can be ideal for short-term use.
  • Flexible partial dentures: If you have trouble adjusting to rigid metal or acrylic dentures, flexible partial dentures can provide a softer and more comfortable feel.

How Long Do Partial Dentures Last?

Partial dentures can last from 5 to 15 years, depending on the quality of the materials they are made from and the care you take in maintaining them. Thrive uses only state-of-the-art methods and high-quality materials to ensure that our patients’ partial dentures last as long as possible.

Are Partial Dentures Difficult to Live With?

Most people who receive partial dentures experience a brief adjustment period but get used to them within a few weeks. The number of missing teeth, the type of denture you receive, and the care you take in maintaining your dentures will affect the ease of your transition.
