What are acrylic partial dentures?

Acrylic partial dentureAcrylic partial dentures are removable false teeth which fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth. Unlike full dentures, which replace all your natural teeth, partial dentures replace just a few. Whether you need to replace a single tooth, or several teeth, an acrylic partial denture can be designed to suit your specific needs. The gum coloured, acrylic material from which the partial dentures are made, forms the supporting structure of the device into which artificial teeth are inserted, producing a robust and natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. The acrylic partial denture can be easily added to, or relined. Denture repairs are generally rapid and problem free.

Why would I need a partial acrylic denture?

Partial acrylic dentures are an economical way to replace the loss of natural teeth. Gaps caused by missing teeth are unsightly and can compromise your ability to eat and enjoy a full range of foods. Further, acrylic partial dentures are designed to help prevent remaining teeth from drifting into the empty space. Without tooth support, gaps in your dental arch can cause health consequences like bone loss in the jaw, thereby changing the shape of your face and altering your bite. Jaw misalignment caused by missing teeth can be responsible for headaches and other discomforts.

How do acrylic partial dentures function?

Acrylic partial dentures are made to closely fit the shape of your gums and mouth anatomy, contacting both hard and soft mouth tissues. The acrylic partial denture is held in place by clasping the remaining natural teeth with a choice of either metal or aesthetic (gum coloured) retainers ensuring a firm and comfortable fit.

Acrylic Partial Denture Clasp Options

When designing your new acrylic partial denture, you will have a choice of metal or aesthetic gum coloured clasps. Gum coloured clasps are an ideal solution to clasp teeth seen in the smile line. (Available on premium and cobalt chrome dentures)

Dr Paul matched the shape of the teeth with the patient’s facial shape, the shape of the patient’s natural teeth and the natural anatomical shape of the mouth. It’s a great outcome with a beautiful smile!

Frequently asked questions

With careful maintenance, annual check-ups, and denture relines when necessary, you can expect an acrylic partial denture to last between 5-7 years. The individual’s changing mouth due to ageing, and their particular pattern of wear, accounts for the variation in time span.
