Summerlin, Las Vegas, and Henderson Nevada
Replace missing teeth, restore your smile, and regain self-confidence by receiving a partial denture from Las Vegas dentist Dr. Matthew Wilson at Inspire Dental of Summerlin.
A partial denture is a removable, prosthetic tooth replacement. You can wear your partial denture all day! The only times you’ll need to take it out is when you go to bed, when cleaning it, and when brushing and flossing your natural teeth. When worn, a partial denture replaces that hole in your smile caused by missing teeth, while also restoring your ability to eat food better than before.
What can I expect from a partial denture procedure?
First, we take impressions of your mouth and teeth. Then, we take these impressions to handcraft your partial denture.
It may take up to two weeks to have your partial denture made. However, it is well worth the wait! When you return to our office, we will try in your new replacement teeth to make sure the fit is comfortable. You will be amazed because the results look completely natural.
Inspire Dental of Summerlin offers two types of partial dentures:
- Metal partials: Consists of a metal framework, which is covered by an acrylic base and has prosthetic teeth attached. The framework has clasps, which secure the partial in place, keeping it from slipping. These clasps gently rest over a few of your existing teeth to provide stability when wearing your partial. Our staff will color-match the prosthetic teeth and gum tissue to look like your natural smile as closely as possible.
- Metal-free partials: Lacking the metal framework or clasps, this partial looks even more natural. It is recommended for individuals who need tooth replacements in highly visible areas of the mouth, or who have a metal allergy. The absence of the framework or clasps reduces the likelihood this partial will irritate your mouth and gums and offers a more aesthetic appeal. Metal-free partials also have greater flexibility, which can make them feel more comfortable.
Adjusting to Your New Partial
For some patients who have never worn a partial denture, there may be a bit of an adjustment period. During this short amount of time, you may need to adjust to speaking and eating differently than you did before. The reason for this change is because a partial, although thin and comfortable, still takes up a little room inside your mouth. Most patients find, however, that they completely adjust within about a week or so.
