Tooth Replacement and Partial Dentures in West Vancouver

If you have a few missing teeth that are affecting how you talk or eat, it may be time to consider getting partial dentures. Typically kept in place with clasps made of resilient metal alloys or plastic, partial dentures rest upon and wrap around your remaining teeth.

 

At West Vancouver Denture Clinic, we offer partial denture services at competitive prices, with a specific focus on making sure the dental care you need is accessible and convenient to you. We’ll have you come in for an examination and a consultation to determine if any dental work will be required prior to fitting you for partial dentures for tooth replacement. With our partial denture in West Vancouver, you can improve your mouth’s function efficiently.

What Is a Partial Denture?

A partial denture is a removable, yet natural-looking dental appliance that helps restore the form and function of your jaw by replacing one or several missing teeth. Partial dentures are made from a combination of metal and acrylic, which gives them the strength to handle your needs for chewing and speaking, while also looking natural. Some partial dentures are entirely made from acrylic – these dentures tend to be less durable and structurally sound but can be a solution for you depending on your situation.

 

Rest assured West Vancouver Denture Clinic will help you select the right partial denture for your unique needs.

 

Visit Us Often To Ensure An Optimal Fit

Partial dentures are custom-made to ensure an optimum fit. Sometimes crowns may be required to help improve their fit. Achieving the right fit is very important because it directly affects your dentures’ overall look and functionality, as well as your bite. Because ill-fitting or loose partial dentures can cause a variety of soreness and damages, we recommend you come in for regular check-ups at least once every six months.

 

Ill-fitting dentures have been known to cause headaches, sore corners in your mouth, a dull pain in your ears and a snapping noise when you’re chewing. If left untreated, ill-fitting partial dentures can cause damage to your gums resulting in bone loss and/or the loss of your teeth. It’s perfectly normal for the fit of your partial dentures to change as you get older and your jawbone shrinks. Remember, you should never attempt to adjust, realign, or repair your partial dentures on your own – come in and see us provide a proper fit!

Benefits of Partial Dentures

Being fitted for partial dentures is a far less invasive procedure than being fitted for complete dentures. Most of our patients have little to no trouble adapting to them. Other benefits of partial dentures include:

 

Restored comfort: You should notice a comfortable fit when you’re eating, chewing or speaking. If you find it difficult to say certain words while wearing your new dentures at first, it is perfectly normal. With a little bit of adjustment time and practice of speaking aloud in front of a mirror, you’ll get there.

 

Easy to clean: Because partial dentures are removable, it allows for easy cleaning. You’ll still need to brush and floss daily to remove plaque buildup for healthy gums and teeth. You’ll need a special denture cleanser and a special brush or a toothbrush with soft bristles.

 

Protect your gums: Your partial dentures will help you eliminate gaps between your missing teeth. This also helps prevent trapped food particles, which can lead to bacteria growth, tooth decay and gum disease over time.

Partial Denture Care and Maintenance

Denture care is pivotal for the health and hygiene of your dentures and your mouth. Here are some tips:

 

Handle dentures with great care: To avoid accidentally dropping your dentures, stand over a folded towel or a full sink of water while handling them.

 

Brush and rinse dentures daily: Like your natural teeth, dentures must be brushed daily to remove food and plaque. Use a brush with soft bristles recommended by your denturist.

 

Clean with a denture cleaner: Ultrasonic cleaners can be used to clean dentures and are designed for this purpose. These are small bathtub-like devices that have a cleaning solution.

 

Take proper care of dentures when not using them: When not worn, dentures should be placed in a denture cleanser soaking solution recommended by your denturist or in water.

 

Never place dentures in hot water: Dentures should never be placed in hot or boiling water, it might cause them to warp.
