How do I adjust to having a lower partial?

A Denture is a set of Removable Replacement Teeth that Dentists Recommend When You are Missing Several or all Your Teeth.

The Biggest Advantage Of Dentures Being You Can Get Your Life Back To Normal So You Can Eat And Smile Like You UsedTo.

Though they may take a short time to get used to, dentures do provide the facial structure that is often lost when teeth are missing. They can also restore your confidence in social situations. Dentures are designed to create great looking teeth that look natural in your mouth. As a result when you get dentures, your smile may be even more beautiful than the one you remember.

Types of Dentures: Full Dentures, Partial Dentures, Immediate Dentures If you still have some teeth that are in good condition, you may be a candidate for a partial denture. There are also upper and lower dentures, which are used if all of the teeth on either the top or bottom are missing.

Q. “What About An Immediate Denture?”

A. An immediate denture is used only if your dentist cannot save any of your natural teeth. Recent advances in denture materials and fitting have made it possible to have full dentures that both fit securely and are comfortable to wear.

Q. “Would Bridges Or Implants Be A Better Option?”

A. Yes, if you recently lost one or a few teeth. Bone in the mouth tends to degrade after teeth are missing for a while. If your teeth have been missing for several years you may not have the bone needed for implants and bridges. In that case, a partial denture can be an effective option for you.

A 2008 Harvard University study showed that partial dentures are the best option for patients who do not meet the criteria for implants. And best of all, they are cost effective.

Getting Dentures:

If you think you may be a candidate for dentures what do you need to know?

Whether you are getting a full, upper, lower or partial denture the procedure is essentially the same. In order to have your denture fit perfectly, you may need to visit your dentist more than once before you get your denture. The most important thing to remember is to focus on your dental hygiene, and possibly improve your daily routine. The best thing you can do for yourself is to take good care of the teeth you still have and keep your gums healthy. Brushing, flossing and using mouthwash multiple times daily are still best ways to keep teeth and gums healthy.

Partial Dentures:

A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces multiple missing teeth. It can be attached to the teeth with clasps (clasp or conventional partial) or it can be attached to the teeth with crowns with precision attachments (hidden clasps). Both types have a metal framework and plastic teeth and gum areas.

Partial dentures? Can't get used to them.

I got partials (both sides, upper and lower) four weeks ago. No pain, but I can't adjust to the huge amount plastic behind the top and bottom front teeth. I am conscious of this big wad of plastic in my mouth every minute. My tongue cannot find a place to rest. It's still hard to speak clearly. (After twelve years of teaching foreigners how to pronounce English, I know how to pronounce, and am embarrassed when people ask me to repeat myself.) Is this normal?

Dental mil has a partial plate in

I've noticed over the years that she is experiencing significant bone loss and recession in her lower jaw. Could it be because of her partial plate? She has most of her teeth in her lower jaw, and she has significant open bite. Her front teeth (where here dentures are) do not contact the bottom at all.


You need to ask people around you that have dentures and have no problems with them. If it is a full plate on the bottom, I guess that will be a nightmare. I don't know why there has not been a solution to this problem yet. This new idea of implants is only for the rich and famous. I have a full upper plate and I have had no problems. It took years to find a dentist who could fix the upper plate to look natural without the big bump out. I was told it was because I had an overbite but now it has been fixed by another dentist.I still have a few teeth on the bottom to attach a partial. Good luck and ask, ask, ask


I was thinking of getting dentures replaced by a completely implanted appliance. I've had the rundown on how it works, where they put screws in to the bone top and bottom (and have been told my bone and gums are great for this kind of thing) but I was wondering if anyone that looked into or had this done can tell me what a reasonable price for this is? I kind of have an idea of what an unreasonable price is... I'm interested in cost for complete or partial or even single tooth. And any insurance info/ tips, if you are lucky enough to have any is appreciated.
