Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is usually made to replace one or more teeth, and is customized to a patient’s specific requirements.
Removable partial dentures restore a person’s natural appearance and greatly improve the ability to chew and speak clearly.
A partial denture may be tooth-supported or tooth and tissue supported. There are significant differences between these two types of dentures. We can explain these differences for you.
The number of teeth remaining, the position and the stability of the teeth are only a few of the factors that help to determine what style or type of partial denture would be best for you.
Partials can be made of different materials, including acrylics, a metal/acrylic combination or flexible thermoplastics.
Acrylic partials are usually used as a transitional or temporary replacement of missing teeth, depending on your personal circumstances.
The metal/acrylic partial – commonly called a cast partial -is usually a more rigid and permanent style of denture. The metal is either a highly compatible chrome cobalt alloy or titanium, which are both ultra thin, light and very strong.
The new flexible thermoplastics have the advantage of aesthetics and flexibility.
All partials are designed to be removable and should be removed nightly to contribute to a health oral environment.
With newer designs, materials and techniques, partials are more comfortable than ever before. Ask your denture care provider about the many designs available, some of which have no visible clasps and are virtually undetectable.
Partial dentures do not harm remaining teeth. A properly partial denture may prevent your natural teeth from shifting or drifting into the space left by the loss of a natural tooth. In fact, a partial denture may help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support.
With a partial denture, you’ll look better, feel better and chew better! To book your appointment today , please call the Cyprus Denture and Dental Clinic in Limassol at 25 343 343.
Rebase, Relines, Repairs
Rebasing is usually done when the denture teeth have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material. It is a process of retrofitting dentures by replacing all of the acrylic denture base with new acrylic, which provides a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth.
This consists of adding new base material to the tissue side of a denture so it fits properly. We will need to take an impression inside your existing denture.
Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance.
Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage). This can be due to:
-loss of weight
-loss of teeth
-loss of bone
-disease or illness
In most cases, we can restore an existing broken or cracked denture to its original state while you wait or within the same day. Repairs may be required when breakage or chipping occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture(due to tooth extraction ), or because of wear and tear.
Most repairs can easily be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair, it may be indicative of underlying problems, including age of the denture, worn teeth, or poor fit. Your denture care provider can best explain how to prevent denture breakage from occurring.
For your same day denture repairs or relines call the Cyprus Denture and Dental Clinic in Limassol at 25 343 343.
The Soft Liner Alternative
A permanent soft liner is a layer of soft material that is fitted to the surface of a denture and rests next to the oral tissues. In short, a soft liner acts as a cushion or shock absorber between the hard plastic base of a denture and the gums. Soft liners can be used in the fabrication of new dentures or placed in existing dentures .
Permanent soft liners provide comfort and relief for individuals with:
-severely receded of flat gums that do not tolerate the stress of dentures
-gums with prominent or sharp bony areas
Advantages of soft liners
-clinical evidence indicates that almost everyone tolerates soft liner materials
-with soft liners,many denture wearers report that they can chew food more comfortably
-a proven technology, soft liners have been offered to patients for over 20 years, and over that time the materials and technology have steadily improved
Things to think about with soft liners
-greater consideration in the use of proper cleaners and good home care must be given to soft liners
-soft liners require regular follow-up visits with a denture care provider to examine the fit of dentures, the health of a patient’s oral tissues, and to ensure professional cleaning.
