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.

If you’re looking for a denture clinic in St. Catharines, we invite you to our office to learn more about the options available for restoring missing teeth.

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.

In my life I have experience good situations, and great situations. Today, I can honestly say, I have experienced a superior situation. Hayven Dentures and the absolute terrific and professional staff, have made that possible for me to say that. From the time that I had my first appointment, and until my very last appointment, I was treated so well. The staff ; Julie, Cherie, Hayes, and Judy went out of their way; went beyond the call of duty, to ensure a very comfortable environment. The Denturists Hayes and Judy, were absolutely so thorough; constantly making sure the fit of the denture was perfect. In the end, it was. it is like not even having dentures in, they feel like you own teeth!! I cannot thank the team enough for what they have done for me. If anyone is in need of partial or full dentures, Hayven Dentures is where one should go. The rating scale only has 5 stars, well I will give you 10. Thank you so much staff.

My parents needed new dentures. After a lot of research, we decided to go ahead with Hayven Dentures. I am so happy we did business with them. They were detailed and patient enough to make the dentures comfortable for you to wear. This is the third time I have made dentures for my parents and the ones with Hayven was my best experience. Thank you to Hayes, Judy and Cherie for all your help!
