A removable partial denture is designed to replace lost or missing teeth. A partial denture consists of acrylic teeth attached to a thin, precise metal framework by pink acrylic (gum colored). The metal framework connects by clasps to the existing natural teeth. This enables the partial to stay in place. We have our own laboratory on site which allows the denturist to work side by side with the lab technicians to achieve the best possible fit. Since everything but the metal framework of the removable partial denture is made “in house” it allows us to complete the series of appointments quickly and efficiently without the delay of sending it out to another lab. Once you have your removable partial denture, you will be able to perform many of the regular functions of teeth such as chewing and talking, and can reduce the number of infections or irritations that may otherwise occur. Most people are used to their new dentures in just a few weeks and full adjustment to your new teeth will usually take about thirty days.
