More people are choosing implant supported dentures over their traditional counterparts. Unlike regular dentures that are held in place with adhesives and suction, implant supported dentures stay firmly in position via implants inserted into the jaws. This means implant dentures give a more secure and comfortable fitting, which is a huge advantage, considering that the…
The Importance of Partial Dentures
There are many benefits to removable partial dentures instead of alternative treatment solutions (i.e., implant-supported bridges). Understanding the advantages of partial dentures can help you make the most informed choice possible about the best way to replace your missing teeth.
The advantages of choosing partial dentures
Removable partial dentures are a form of teeth replacement for a section of missing teeth. They are important because of the range of benefits they offer, which include an improved appearance, an easier ability to function daily, and a less invasive treatment option when compared to dental implants.
Partial dentures are fully customized based on the patient's specific measurements and needs. This ensures an ideal and comfortable fit and look. The dentist also ensures the process goes smoothly and reduces the risk of any setbacks. Overall, the process is simply more reliable and safe than with dental implants and other forms of teeth replacement.
One of the most common reasons patients seek partial dentures treatment is to address cosmetic concerns caused by missing teeth. Patients are often thrilled with their new complete smiles while wearing partial dentures. Technology has come a long way, and the replacement teeth now look more like natural teeth than ever before, and no one is likely to be able to tell a difference.
Less invasive treatment
Partial dentures are also much less invasive than dental implants. With dental implants, the process can take close to a year to complete and there are often several different invasive procedures involved. This is not the case with partial dentures. While there may be some preparation procedures that are necessary and some minor discomfort while adjusting to the dentures for the first time, the process is overall non-invasive and takes far less time to complete than implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Affordable teeth replacement
Partial dentures are also more affordable than most other teeth replacement solutions, while still providing a great appearance and high-quality material. While they are not as durable as dental implants, they can still last for five to ten years before needing any extensive repairs or replacement.
An easier ability to function daily
Eating is difficult with missing teeth. In addition, many patients find it more challenging to talk when they have multiple missing teeth. Partial dentures restore the ability to function normally. Patients can eat the foods they desire (within reason) easily, and talking is much easier with partial dentures as well. A common misconception is that partial dentures do not offer a high level of comfort, which is simply not the case. Through regular adjustments to the dentures when necessary, they fit comfortably and allow for ideal mouth function.
