Partial Dentures

Partial dentures need more attention than full dentures, as the fit, care and hygiene of these dentures has an effect on the preservation of remaining natural teeth.

Because partial dentures may trap food, which it turn can lead to tooth decay, you should remove denture after eating and thoroughly clean both the denture and your own teeth.

If a partial denture does not fit well it may well also severely damage your own gums which support your own natural teeth. A poor fit may also cause bleeding, soreness and swelling of gums.

It is vital to seek immediate attention to adjust ill fitting partial dentures.

Different types of partial dentures:

  • acrylic (transitional acrylic partial denture)
  • cast partial denture (Vitallium…)

A precisely-fitting partial results in proper chewing while maintaining general oral health.
