Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can be used to fill in gaps left by missing teeth. Most partial dentures are made from a mixture of acrylic and metal, but there are some that are entirely acrylic. The partial denture will not only fill in the gap left by missing teeth, but also prevent any rotation or shifting of the adjacent teeth that could affect your facial structure.

Full Dentures

Are dentures used to replace a full arch of teeth that are missing. They can be used on either the top or bottom arch, or both. These are custom-made for each patient, and they will restore your smile to its original condition without discomfort.

Partial dentures are designed to replace one or more missing teeth and help support the surrounding teeth. Partial dentures can also be used to help patients chew and talk and reduce the pain and pressure that may result from shifting. Filling in the gap left by missing teeth is essential to prevent pain and to make it easier to speak and chew. Partial dentures can be a great alternative if you cannot receive a bridge. They are easy to use and will keep your smile natural.

What is the difference between partial dentures and dental bridges?

Patients can experience many oral health problems if they leave gaps in their mouths caused by missing teeth. These problems can range from feeling insecure to having difficulty eating or speaking. They can also cause the teeth around them to shift and rotate. Patients in Peace River usually opt for a partial or dental bridge to avoid these problems. The main difference between a partial bridge and a denture is that the former is removable while the latter is cemented in place. Dentures are usually cheaper than dental bridges, but a dental bridge may cost three times as much.

Dental bridges can be used to replace a single missing tooth or two adjacent teeth. To be a candidate for a bridge, however, you need to have a strong jawbone, healthy gums, and stable teeth around it.

The aesthetics and functionality are what really set partial dentures apart from dental bridges. A partial denture usually consists of acrylic and metal with artificial teeth attached. Clips or clasps hold partial dentures in place. These clips can appear when you open your mouth or smile.
