Flexible Partial Dentures
Traumatic damage to anterior teeth is a common form of injury, particularly in adolescents. Patients presenting with traumatized or lost anterior teeth require immediate attention for restoration of Aesthetics and function.
In such Type of cases Flexibe Partial Dentures plays a great role
The innovation of the flexible partial denture paved the way for a new type of partial denture, which provides excellent aesthetics and comfort for patients who prefer to wear a removable denture rather than a fixed restoration such as a dental bridge or dental implants. By using a flexible base, the restoration can adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth.
Why should you use partial Dentures?
It's true that partial dentures bring the beauty back to your smile by replacing missing teeth. And that's a big deal! But the other benefits of partial dentures are important, too.
A partial denture is used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Flexible partial dentures are virtually invisible because there are no telltale metal clasps. In fact, the denture material blends right in with the natural color of the tissue in your mouth so no one has to know you're wearing it.
Partial dentures also:
- Make it easier to chew and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Ease the stress of your bite
- Prevent teeth from shifting
- Decrease the risk of gum disease and resulting gum disease treatment
How to take care of your partial Dentures?
- Clean your appliance regularly. Most brands of flexible partials will have a specific cleaner that is recommended for regular soaking of your new denture. Please consult your dentist if you have any questions regarding the type of denture cleaner you should be using.
- Loose particles can be removed with the use of a sonic denture cleaner, or by placing the appliance under running water. Brushing a denture is generally not recommended as this may remove the polish and roughen the surface over time.
- If possible, rinse your new dental appliance after eating to remove any food particles.
- Keep the partial dentures in water or in denture cleaner whenever it is not being worn to keep the surface hydrated.
- Remember to brush your natural teeth and gums regularly as directed by your dentist.
