Partial Dentures – Johnston, IA
A removable partial denture is designed specifically to meet the needs of the patient and can replace one or more missing teeth. A natural appearance and speech clarity is restored, along with the ability to eat more efficiently.
Partial Denture Types and Materials
Partial dentures are created out of metal and acrylic, or completely out of acrylic. A patient’s specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the partial denture and every effort is made to construct a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues.
Dr. Emily or Dr. Derek will design your partial denture so that the chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface area of the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Changes to your remaining teeth may be recommended to help equalize these forces.
Partials with metal substructures are generally preferred as they are structurally superior. They are thinner, more durable, and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are typically used as a transitional or temporary partial. Dr. Emily or Dr. Derek will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation.
