Partial Dentures

Full dentures (often called or dental false teeth) and partial dentures are the tooth replacements that constitute the main prostheses included in the field of, ...


Removable prosthetics involve any sort of tooth replacement appliance that is intended to be removed. These are often made for patients who are not good candidates for either .

FULL DENTURES: (The terms "full dentures" and "dental plates" will be used interchangiblly) are intended to replace all the teeth in a given arch. They are placed when either all the teeth are missing or the teeth present are not strong enough, not numerous enough, or not positioned well enough to support a PARTIAL denture.
UPPER dental plates often will stay in without any adhesive, but lower dental plates do not function quite as nicely. There is often a nice ridge, and the palate does provide a nice suction to help keep it in place.

LOWER DENTURES are a very different. Your tongue, cheek, and lips, unfortunately all work to dislodge your lower denture. Also, your lower ridge is usually much smaller than your upper, which gives the denture less to hold onto.


It is generally recommended to remove your dentures at night to allow your tissues to breathe. There are also denture cleaning kits that come with brushes and tablets to clean your denture in. Also, if you go see your dentist they have cleaners they can run them through.

Dentures and dental plates are very common sources of candidiasis or fungal infections, so it is very important to keep them clean, and some dentists recommend getting a new set every 5 years or so.

Getting dentures can be very traumatic and is a big adjustment to natural teeth, so it is very important to be patient and have reasonable expectations.

IMMEDIATE DENTURE DENTAL PLATES: This is when any number of teeth are extracted and the denture is placed at the same appointment. It is usually recommended to keep the denture in overnight, and you will usually need to see your provider the next day.The main benefit of the IMMEDIATE DENTURE is you do not go without teeth for any length of time. The main drawback is because the lab is “guessing” what your ridge will look like after the teeth are extracted, it most likely will not fit very well at first. After the gums have completely healed, the denture can be either remade or religned to fit better, but the healing process can take over 6 months.Because the healing process takes so long, the first few months will be very difficult. Your gums will constantly be remodeling under the denture, so it will likely move around a lot.Along with the denture not fitting well, it also takes some time to get used to speaking and eating with it.Rest assured though, after the healing process is complete and the denture is religned, most people are able to eat just about anything, and speak without anyone knowing they are wearing a denture.Contrary to what you may think as well, the esthetics of dentures can be remarkably better than your natural teeth.

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
