Lower partial denture design

A removable partial denture (RPD) is for a partially edentulous dental patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons, and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge (i.e. distal abutments) or due to financial limitations. The reason why this type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial denture is because patients can remove and reinsert them when required without professional help. Conversely, a fixed prosthesis can and should…

Acrylic partial dentures

May 02, 2012by What are acrylic partial dentures? Acrylic dentures are arguably the oldest dentures in the market. They can be used to replace missing teeth and prevent creation of spaces between the remaining teeth due to drifting or moving. Acrylic partial dentures also improve speech and make chewing more comfortable. They are low in cost and require a shorter time to fabricate. Acrylic partial dentures are made up of pink sets of replacement teeth or gum-colored acrylic resin. Metal rests are sometimes used to prevent the acrylic partial denture from exerting excess pressure…

Maxillary partial denture

Maxillary partial denture

Teeth are pretty benign. Not much bad can happen if they are not removed (if you even have them). It s surprising to me that insurance will even pay for the procedure to remove them. Mandibular thirds are a different story. Unerupted thirds can form cysts and cause other problems. Unless a wisdom tooth is needed to support a partial denture, bridge, or in the case of maxillary wisdom teeth, replace an extracted second molar, I advise they be removed. Situated under the massetter muscle, way back in the jaw, they can generate great force, and contributes to bruxism. They are…

Are partial dentures comfortable

Implants,crowns and bridges,although preferred treatment plans,are not always a viable option for patients. Dr Miller has been offering Equipoise Partials to his patients as an alternative for many years. The Equipoise partial denture system is designed for comfort while preserving and protecting your remaining teeth when a partial denture is required. The Equipoise semi-precision E clasp and precision C & L clasp are specifically designed to distribute chewing pressure more evenly and at a better angle on neighboring teeth than other types of partials. This makes…

Nesbit partial dentures

Nesbit partial dentures

A Nesbit denture is a removable partial denture for only one side of the upper or lower arch. It replaces a tooth or teeth and usually is retained by clasps, preferably with rests on the supporting teeth to prevent the denture from settling into the gum tissue. Patients may feel that this has the benefit of being single-sided and therefore there is no connecting metal or plastic across the roof of the mouth or behind the lower front teeth to connect to the opposite side of the jaw. Unfortunately, this supposed benefit also creates a problem because there is no bilateral support…

A complete denture is a prosthesis designed to replace all of a patient’s missing teeth. Dentures are supported by the remaining jaw bone and gum tissues. For some patients,this becomes difficult to tolerate,and in those cases we will employ dental implants to assist in the support,stability and retention of the complete denture.
