Removable Partial Denture
A removable partial denture is an appliance that can replace one or more missing teeth. Removable partial dentures are attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments and keep it in position. There are different types of dentures, but they commonly include a metal and/or acrylic (plastic) base with plastic or porcelain artificial teeth.
Esthetic appearance and speech is restored along with the ability to eat confidently and efficiently, and these clasps are hidden so that they can't be seen when you smile or talk.
Dentists at Seablue Dental, Kent, WA can deliver a temporary or "immediate" full dentures immediately or once all dental extractions are performed. This may even be fitted and worn the same day as your teeth are removed. These are removable plastic or metal frameworks carrying artificial teeth.
Full dentures will help improve your self-confidence after you have lost your natural teeth. It might take few visits for you to get adjusted to your new dentures comfortably and reline might be needed soon after you receive your new dentures. If you have full dentures, you will need to remove them for cleaning and take them out at night.
