10 Extractions and Immediate Partial Dentures

A full denture is a removable appliance replacing all of the natural teeth and the associated tissues and is supported by the gums. As the name implies, a full denture can replace either an upper or lower arch or both arches.

A full denture comprises of an acrylic base and acrylic or composite denture teeth. For patients with a history of breaking full dentures a metal palate or plate can be inserted into the denture for extra strength. Full dentures can also be retained by implants for better stability and function.

Your dental prosthetist will recommend the option that best meets your particular needs.

A removable partial denture is usually made to replace one or more missing natural teeth and is supported by the remaining natural teeth and gums. Partial dentures are customised to a patient’s specific requirements in order to restore a person’s natural appearance and greatly improve the ability to chew and speak clearly.

Partial dentures do not harm remaining natural teeth and 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.

Partials can be made of different materials including cast metal partial dentures and acrylic partial dentures. The cast metal partial is usually a more rigid and permanent style of denture that offer great strength and stability as well as support for the remaining teeth. The metal is a highly compatible cobalt chromium alloy which is ultra thin and light.

Acrylic partials are usually used as a transitional or temporary replacement of missing teeth. 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 type of partial denture would be best for you.

You’ve been advised that you need an immediate denture. But what is it and how is it done? This information will help to explain the concepts and answer questions you might have regarding this type of denture. Your dental prosthetist can guide you as to when the situation warrants immediate dentures.

To avoid the situation of being without teeth, your dental prosthetist will implement the immediate denture technique. This involves taking impressions of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present. The dental prosthetist is then able to fabricate a denture in the likeness of your natural teeth, or make any necessary modifications you may wish.

Mine were a couple of thousand. There should be no charge after the first visit except for the dentures themselves. Lucky me was covered under my company's dental plan and DH's company plan.
Dentist pulled my remaining teeth, did immediate dentures. Full upper, partial lower. That was about 6 years ago, and the upper hasn't needed any adjustment. The suction from the palate will hold it in place with no adhesives if it's well made. Best to have at least a few bottom teeth for the lower to hook onto, though.
If you're getting dentures, do not go for cheap! Nobody can tell I have dentures, and they're not uncomfortable at all
