Partial Dentures in Highland Village TX

Snap-in and Snap-on Dentures

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, over 120 million Americans have lost at least one tooth, with that number expected to rise to 200 million by 2050. Missing teeth can impact self-esteem and overall oral health. Fortunately, partial dentures offer an effective solution.

In Highland Village, Flower mound & Dallas, Texas, Dr. Drew Moore at Village Periodontics & Implant Dentistry provides custom partial dentures that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

What are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures, sometimes called removable partial dentures, replace one or several missing teeth within a dental arch. Unlike full dentures, which replace all the teeth in an arch, partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. These dentures consist of artificial teeth attached to a pink, gum-colored base, made from either acrylic resin or metal. The base fits snugly over your natural teeth, providing support and stability for the artificial teeth. Metal partial dentures are typically less bulky and more affordable to repair than acrylic ones.

Types of Partial Dentures

Here are some common types of partial dentures:

  1. Removable Partial Dentures (RPDs): These dentures can be easily removed for cleaning and are usually made of acrylic or metal. They fit snugly using clasps or hooks that attach to adjacent natural teeth.

  2. Fixed Partial Dentures: Also known as bridges, these durable dental appliances are typically made from porcelain or ceramic, offering a more permanent solution than RPDs.

  3. Flexible Partial Dentures: Made from flexible materials like nylon or thermoplastic, these dentures are more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing than traditional RPDs.

  4. Cast Metal Partial Dentures: Similar to RPDs, these dentures use a cast metal framework but tend to last longer.

Benefits of Partial Dentures

Research shows that partial dentures offer many benefits, improving both oral health and overall well-being:

  1. Enhanced Chewing and Digestion: Missing teeth can make eating difficult, leading to malnutrition and digestive issues. Partial dentures enable proper chewing, ensuring you get the necessary nutrients.

  2. Boosted Confidence: Gaps between teeth can negatively impact self-esteem. Partial dentures fill these gaps, helping you feel more confident.

  3. Improved Speech: Missing teeth can make it hard to pronounce certain words. Partial dentures improve speech clarity and confidence.

  4. Prevents Tooth Migration: When teeth are missing, remaining teeth may shift, leading to issues like malocclusion. Partial dentures stabilize the alignment of your teeth.

  5. Cost-Effective: Partial dentures are generally more affordable than alternatives like dental implants, making them a cost-effective option for many.

How Do Partial Dentures Work?

Partial dentures work by:

  • Replacing Missing Teeth: Artificial teeth are attached to a gum-colored base that fits closely around natural teeth.
  • Providing Support: The lower part of the denture supports neighboring teeth, preventing them from moving.
  • Restoring Chewing Ability: Designed to function like natural teeth, partial dentures allow efficient chewing and digestion.
  • Improving Aesthetics: The base and artificial teeth are designed to match natural teeth, providing a natural-looking smile.
  • Attaching to Natural Teeth: Clasps or hooks anchor the partial denture to adjacent gums, ensuring stability.
  • Easy Removal: Removable partial dentures can be taken out for cleaning and maintenance, making them convenient.

Q&A's

How long do snap-in dentures last?

Are snap-on dentures a good idea?

Yes, they offer a comfortable fit, improve chewing ability, speech, and boost confidence.

How painful are snap-in dentures?

The procedure is minimally invasive, with most patients experiencing mild to moderate discomfort during implant surgery.

Do snap-in dentures sit on your gums?

 Coverage for snap-in dentures varies by insurance plan. It's best to check with your provider to understand what portion, if any, is covered.

How do snap-in dentures differ from traditional dentures?

 Snap-in dentures are anchored to dental implants, offering greater stability and preventing slipping, unlike traditional dentures which can move around and may require adhesive.
