Full and Partial Dentures

If you’re missing teeth, dentures can be a great solution to help you regain your confidence. However, they are not the same as traditional dentures that may only cover one or two teeth at a time. With full and partial dentures, at Luxe Dental we will create an entire set of natural-looking false teeth that fit in your mouth comfortably and correctly.

Full and Partial Dentures

Dentures are removable replacements for teeth. They can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, or all of your natural teeth. There are two types of dentures: partial and full.

Partial dentures are used when there are only a few missing teeth, while full dentures replace all your natural teeth in the mouth. Both types come in either acrylic (plastic), porcelain or metal forms that fit over the remaining gum tissue on either side of your jawbone area where your natural teeth were removed during surgery or extraction due to decay or gum disease infection symptoms such as bleeding gums/bleeding mouth sores/gingivitis etc…


What are full and partial dentures?

Full dentures are used to replace all of your teeth. They can be made of acrylic, metal or porcelain.

Partial dentures are used to replace some of your teeth if you have some remaining natural ones. Partial dentures can also be made from either acrylic or metal, but not porcelain because it’s too fragile for use in partial denture construction.

Full and partial dentures are anchored in place by a metal framework called an edentulous base. This is usually made of plastic or metal, depending on the type of denture. The base is bonded to your jawbone using small screws that are inserted into your gums or bone at the time of placement.

Benefits of full and partial dentures.

Full and partial dentures are a great way to improve your health, self-esteem and quality of life. Here’s why:

  • Better health – Having a full or partial denture eliminates the need for teeth cleaning in your mouth. This means less time spent in the bathroom brushing, flossing and rinsing out your mouth before bedtime. Instead, you can use that extra time doing something else that’s important to you–like spending more time with family or friends!

  • Better self-esteem – If you’re missing some teeth but still want to smile at others without feeling embarrassed about how they might perceive your appearance as unattractive or unprofessional, then getting fitted for one of these removable prosthetics can help give back some confidence by improving how others view us visually when we interact socially together socially through conversation face-to-face rather than text messaging via cell phone screen alone (which isn’t nearly as effective).

Better quality of life – Having one of these dentures can help improve your overall health by allowing you to eat more foods that are harder in texture or crunchier due to their crispiness. This means a healthier diet for you as well as those around you who want nothing more than for everyone involved to live long and healthy lives together side-by-side!

Get a new smile with full and partial dentures

Dentures are an excellent way to improve your appearance, self-esteem and ability to eat. They can also help you chew and bite, smile and laugh. This is because dentures replace missing teeth with artificial substitutes that look and feel like real ones.

A partial denture replaces some of the natural teeth in your mouth while a full one replaces all of them with artificial replacements made from acrylic or plastic materials or metal alloys such as titanium (which is lighter than most metals).

Dentures give you back your confidence, comfort, and your beautiful smile!

Full and partial dentures are removable replacement teeth that are custom made for each patient. The difference between a full and partial denture is determined by where they’re placed in your mouth. A full denture covers all of your natural teeth and can be placed in either the upper or lower arch, whereas a partial covers only one side, such as just the upper or lower jawbone.

Dentures come in two forms: acrylic (plastic) or metal-based frameworks, which last longer but require more maintenance than their plastic counterparts.

You’ll also have to decide whether you want to get an acrylic set or metal framework–it’s important to consider how comfortable you feel with each option before making your decision!

Full & Partial Dentures FAQs

Are new dentures painful?
It’s completely normal to experience gum pain or discomfort in the first few weeks of wearing new dentures. … This is likely the result of your dentures rubbing against your gums or not fitting properly. Here are a few things you can try to help relieve your denture pain and live more comfortably.
Do dentures have to be removed at night?
Whether you wear full or partial dentures, taking them out at night for sleeping gives the gums and other denture-bearing tissues a chance to rest, recover and receive beneficial exposure to the antibacterial agents naturally present in saliva. In short, removing your dentures at night is the healthiest thing to do.
What types of dentures are there?
Dentures may replace all or only some of the teeth. The dentures that replace all the teeth are known as complete dentures and they rest on the gums that cover the jawbones. The stability and retention of these dentures can be improved by attaching them to dental implants. Dentures that replace some but not all of the teeth are known as partial dentures. They attach to the teeth that are still present and also cover and rest on the gums and bone where the teeth are missing. Dental implants can also be used to restore and stabilize partial dentures as well.
How do I care for my dentures?
Whitening: It is not possible to whiten dentures like natural teeth because dentures are made of plastic. To minimize staining, properly clean your dentures daily to remove food and plaque bacteria. Brushing with a denture brush or soft toothbrush will prevent dentures from becoming permanently stained and keep your mouth healthy. Moisten the brush and apply a non-abrasive soap or denture paste (regular toothpaste is too abrasive). Brush every surface, inside and out, scrubbing gently. A variety of over-the-counter denture cleanser products may be safely used (by following the manufacturer’s instructions) to remove most stains. Do not use bleach on your dentures unless your dentist or prosthodontist gives you special instructions on using bleach. Dilute household bleach can be used to clean and disinfect your dentures, but don’t use bleach until you see your prosthodontist for instructions. More stubborn stains may require removal by your prosthodontist.Brushing: Do not brush your dentures with normal toothpaste. Toothpastes are designed to be used on teeth, and they often contain materials and chemicals that help whiten and strengthen teeth, but may harm dentures, which are made of a very durable plastic. Even though the plastic is strong, it is not as strong as the enamel of teeth and may be scratched by using toothpaste to clean your dentures. You should use a dish washing liquid and a special denture brush to clean your dentures by hand every day. After rinsing them thoroughly, soak your dentures in water-based cleaning solution overnight.Repairing broken dentures: The best solution is to return to the prosthodontist who made your dentures and have the cracked denture repaired professionally. It may seem easy to fix, but it is important that the repair is done correctly to prevent problems with chewing and to avoid any sore spots. The prosthodontist also needs to check the denture and adjust it after it is repaired. The denture may be too old and may no longer fit closely to your gums, and you may need a new denture.
Can I sleep in my dentures?
Yes, you can wear your dentures at night but it is preferred that they be removed. You should remove your dentures at night and this will give your gums and bone a chance to relax from the pressure of the denture during the day. If you need to wear your dentures for social reasons or to prevent your jaws from over closing, you should find time during the day to properly clean your mouth and your prostheses. You should never wear your dentures 24 hours a day without performing proper oral hygiene. Dentures should be cleaned at night and stored in water during the night.
Can I eat normally with dentures?
Most patients need to learn how to use dentures properly and as a result, it takes a little time to get used to them. After a while, you should be able to eat fairly normally, but it may take more time to get comfortable with harder foods or sticky foods. Using a small amount of denture adhesive (no more than three or four pea-sized dabs on each denture) may help stabilize the dentures and help hold them in place while you learn how to get comfortable with them and may make the learning process easier.Chewing gum: Dentures and chewing gum do not usually work well together, no matter which brand of chewing gum you decide to try. The gum typically sticks to the acrylic plastic in the denture and may break a seal on the dentures, which will loosen them as a result. Gum may remain stuck to the denture and eventually harden and discolor. Ultimately, if you wear dentures, you should avoid chewing gum.
What do I do if my dentures feel very heavy and it is difficult to close my mouth?
While it may take time to simply adjust to the new dentures, it is likely that if teeth were removed the same day that the dentures were given to you, then you will need follow up with your prosthodontist to assure that they continue to fit properly as you heal. If you did not have any teeth extracted and simply had new dentures made, there should be fewer adjustments. These adjustments should be more minor in nature. The heavy feeling may be because you have not previously worn dentures or partial dentures. If that is the case, it will take several weeks to completely adapt to the feel of them.
