When many people think of dentures, the first thing that tends to come to mind are traditional full dentures (otherwise known as complete dentures) used to replace entire sets of missing teeth. Several people, however, utilize partial dentures to replace multiple missing teeth when some natural teeth still remain.
McBride Dental handles both full and partial dentures for clients throughout Southern California. Our on-site dental lab allows us to provide one-hour denture services. Call 760-471-1003 to schedule your appointment today.
One major concern many people have that prevents them from getting partial dentures is the appearance of the dentures. Some people believe that the dentures will not look the same as their natural teeth, making it more obvious that the person is wearing dentures. Other people refuse to consider partial dentures based on the belief that the dentures will be uncomfortable and difficult to maintain.
Most concerns about partial dentures disappear rather quickly though. McBride Dental can make sure that your dentures match the color and shade of your natural teeth. While dentures may feel initially awkward, most people become accustomed to wearing them rather quickly.
Partial dentures also fit comfortably into place and do not require excessive force or any struggle to put into your mouth. If you are experiencing any difficulty with your partial dentures, you should contact McBride Dental as soon as possible.
While partial dentures can often provide efficient dental solutions for most people, certain complications can tend to arise with time. One of the most common issues with partial dentures concerns dentures becoming loose.
Looseness tends to be a problem for people with a single natural tooth or only a few remaining natural teeth. Fewer natural teeth means less support for the partial dentures. McBride Dental can quickly tighten clasps on your dentures to achieve maximum hold for your dentures.
In some cases, partial dentures can also cause pain for certain people. Clasps on dentures may be too tight or too much stress may be being placed on your natural teeth. McBride Dental can look at your dentures and work to make sure they fit as comfortably as possible.
Fears about discomfort should not prevent you from getting dentures. When properly fitted and placed, partial dentures should still ultimately feel like real teeth. For many people, partial dentures prove to be effective ways of regaining natural smiles and the ability to consume foods naturally and without fear.
