When your patients need removable restorations that fit well, perform well, and provide optimal aesthetics, choose our dental lab for the fabrication of custom partials that meet and exceed expectations. Partials are a popular choice for prosthetic tooth replacement because they tend to be less invasive and more affordable than fixed solutions, such as bridges and implants. Partials are indicated for the replacement of one or more missing teeth in spaces surrounded by other teeth or permanent restorations. Since they rest on the surrounding teeth, they can easily fill in the gaps where natural teeth once stood, allowing patients to regain much of their original speaking and chewing capabilities.
A member of our dental lab staff will be happy to speak with you about the specifics of a case and coordinate the design and fabrication of your patient’s partial restorations. Our highly skilled team of technicians utilizes advanced dental lab technology to create partials with a close attention to detail. You simply secure clasps to your patient’s anchor teeth and make an impression of the area the partial will fill. Then, send the impression to our lab, where our technicians will go to work creating a partial denture and gum-colored based that will fit securely over the gums and secure snugly to the clasps on the teeth. Most partials take only days to manufacture and return to your office for fitting.
Your patients will need to care for their partials in the same way they would care for a denture. The partials must remain moist at all times and never be exposed to extremely high temperatures. When not in use, partials must soak in a denture solution. Patients should also take care to brush their partials daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
Good oral health will remain an important part of your patients daily routine. Besides taking care of the new partial denture, patients will need to keep the gums beneath the partial clean by brushing gently with a soft-bristled brush twice each day. Ask patients to bring their partials along for dental exams and follow-up visits to inspect their condition and ensure they continue to provide a comfortable fit.
