Learn about Partial Dentures in Ottawa

When you’re missing some of your teeth on one or both ridges, partial dentures can be an ideal treatment. The treatment may vary depending on the number and location of the missing teeth. At Vranjes Denture Clinic, we offer partial dentures in Ottawa. The two most common kinds of partial dentures we offer at our clinic are cast partials and acrylic (plastic) partials.

Implants can often be incorporated, which increases stability and eliminates the need to clasp natural teeth. Vranjes Denture Clinic offers several options for partial dentures in Ottawa. Come in and see our specialists for a free consultation.

Cast Metal Partial Dentures

A cast metal partial denture is made up of a durable metal framework for the purpose of retention. Cast metal is the preferable method for partial dentures in Ottawa and Vranjes Denture Clinic. The add-ons to the framework include tissue-coloured acrylic along with the dentures themselves. Cast metal partial dentures have a number of benefits such as easy adjustability, functionality, and the prevention of natural teeth shifting. You’ll find a comfortable fit due to their minimal thickness and they require minimal chair time. Learn more about the cast metal partial dentures from Vranjes Denture Clinic in Ottawa today.

Acrylic Partial Dentures

Plastic partial dentures are often less comfortable and stable than cast metal dentures and are therefore used more typically as a temporary solution for those whose teeth have recently been extracted or ahead of an upcoming extraction. Acrylic partial dentures are made up of gum-coloured plastic with the denture teeth and tooth clasps embedded into its base. At Vranjes Denture Clinic, we provide them for aesthetic reasons and to allow for limited function of teeth while your tissue heals. After the healing is done, a more permanent cast partial is manufactured to ensure you have continued health and stability for your teeth.

Getting Used to Your Partial Dentures

It takes some time to get used to partial dentures. Even people who have worn them before need time to adjust to replacement partial dentures. Getting used to your new partial dentures depends largely on the following factors:

  • Experience — if you have worn partial dentures before, adjustment time may be minimal, especially if your replacement is similar in design to your previous partial
  • Age — older patients tend to adapt more slowly than younger patients to changes in their mouth
  • The number of teeth being replaced — the more teeth in the denture partial, the bigger it is, which in turn, can make it more uncomfortable and harder to adjust to
