Partial Dentures

Denture Solutions in St. Catharines & Niagara Region

Preserve your remaining teeth and smile more confidently with partial dentures.

Missing a tooth or several teeth can cause you to hide your smile and avoid social interactions. Your denturist can recommend suitable dental solutions. Partial dentures are one option to consider.

What are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are a removable tooth replacement option. They may be applicable if you still have natural teeth remaining and only need a few replaced.

A partial denture comes with a plate where the false teeth are attached. It can be made of all-plastic materials or a combination of metal and plastic.

The all-plastic partial denture consists of false teeth attached to a pink acrylic base. The metal and plastic combination, also referred to as "cast partial denture," comes with artificial teeth attached to a metal framework.

Both types use clips to secure the denture in your mouth. These clips may be visible, depending on their location.

Benefits of Partial Dentures

  • Serves as an alternative to a dental bridge. Both dental bridges and partial dentures replace missing teeth. However, if you’re missing several teeth, the latter can be more cost-effective.
  • Preserves natural teeth. For bridges to fit, surrounding teeth must be drastically filed down. Partial dentures, on the other hand, only require minimal preparation. This preserves the structure of the remaining natural teeth.
  • Prevents adjacent teeth from shifting. Dentures fill empty spaces, which keeps adjacent teeth from moving and occupying the gaps. Though, do note that the remaining teeth must remain healthy for the partial dentures to function properly.
  • Distributes biting forces. Wearing partial dentures distributes biting forces and prevents straining the remaining teeth. If missing teeth aren’t replaced, your chewing ability can also diminish. You may eventually avoid foods that require heavy chewing.
  • Restores speaking and chewing abilities. Missing teeth can make pronouncing certain sounds more challenging, resulting in slurred speech. Restoring teeth with partial dentures can improve the way you speak and make chewing food much more convenient. This is also useful because proper chewing of food increases saliva production and aids in digestion.

Everyone’s mouth is different. Partial dentures are beneficial in many situations, but they’re not the right dental solution for everyone. You and your dentist can determine which tooth replacement option best suits your needs.

How Much Do Partial Dentures Cost in St. Catharines, Ontario?

Partial dentures come at different price points. Your dentist determines the price by looking at various factors, including the following:

  • The number of missing teeth
  • The location of the treatment area
  • The type of material to be used
  • What dental procedures are necessary before getting a denture
  • The complexity of the procedure

The process starts with a comprehensive oral examination so your dentist can map out a custom treatment plan for you.

Partial dentures are reliable. Though, if your natural teeth are in bad shape, extraction may be necessary, and an immediate complete denture may be recommended for your case instead.

The sooner missing teeth are replaced, the less likely you are to develop dental problems because of them. Teeth misalignment, overcrowding, crooked teeth, and mouth pain can occur due to gaps between teeth.

Once you have your partial dentures, you’ll be required to care for them just as you would for your natural teeth. Remove and rinse them after eating, brush them once daily, and soak them in water or denture solution overnight.

Maintaining good oral hygiene habits and keeping up with routine professional hygiene cleanings are also necessary.

Following dental surgery I had immediate dentures installed at another denture clinic. Unfortunately, right from the start, they were poorly fitting and despite many return visits, the problems continued and worsened. The final straw occurred when my top denture literally dropped out of my mouth when I was speaking. Because the dentures were so loose, I had been using dental adhesive on both the top and bottom but unfortunately the dentures released as soon as I started eating and soft food entered under both dentures. As a result, I was unable to eat regular food and was limited to very soft items, like eggs, soup, yogurt etc. I needed help and following much research and checking with various people, I was so fortunate to find Hayven Dentures where I spoke with Cherie, the business administrator, and made an appointment. Following a consultation with Hayes, I felt immediately at ease and very impressed with the length of time he spent checking and discussing my issue. I was very relieved when he identified that the main cause of my problems was because the denture bite was misaligned. He corrected the problem on the upper denture and adjusted the lower one to the point that using adhesive I can now eat proper food and my denture stays in place! I was also informed that Hayven Dentures install a temporary immediate denture following dental surgery and after 4 months the permanent dentures are fitted and installed, The denture clinic I originally went to did not offer this and unfortunately I was not aware of this option, therefore permanent dentures were installed. I sincerely wish I had been referred to Hayven Denture Clinic initially and had this happened, I know I could have been spared a lot of the problems, money, stress and time spent returning weekly to the other clinic. I am so grateful and thankful to have found Hayven Denture Clinic and Hayes and I plan to have further work done there and I am very happy and confident in recommending them.
