Dentures and Partials

Dentures are a great choice for patients who want a simple solution for replacing their missing teeth. They’re removable, easy to care for, and come with many variations based on how many teeth you’re replacing. Dentures and partials from Bratten Dental can transform your smile for the better!

Restoring Your Teeth with Full Dentures

Patients who have lost all their teeth or had them removed will benefit from a full set of dentures. Your dentist may offer two types depending on your situation:

Conventional Full Dentures – After your teeth have been removed and the tissue heals, we’ll place these dentures.

Immediate Full Dentures – These dentures are placed immediately after removing teeth with custom-fitted prosthetics.

Restoring Your Teeth with Partials

Partial dentures are another option for patients who still have some of their natural teeth remaining. They’re similar to a dental bridge, but they’re not permanently fixed in your mouth. Partials are made up of a gum-colored plate with false teeth attached and metal clasps to keep them in place.

Taking Care of Your Dentures or Partials

You should care for your dentures as if they were your natural teeth. They’re delicate, so it’s essential to handle them with care to avoid accidentally breaking them. You also shouldn’t attempt to adjust or fix your dentures without professional assistance from your dentist.

Follow these quick tips to keep your dentures or partials in good shape:

  • Soak your dentures each night
  • Keep them secure when you’re not wearing them
  • Clean your teeth and gums before putting them in
  • Avoid abrasive cleaning materials
