At Dentures Direct, your denture clinic in Toronto, patient satisfaction is our top priority – and it’s just not possible without delivering very high quality dental care and great service. These two concepts first come into play during your initial consultation, where we’ll take a full medical and dental history from you, and examine your current natural teeth, gums and mouth, as well as any false teeth you may already have. At this point we may need to talk about removable partial dentures that will bridge any gaps in your smile that may be bothering you.
Of course, it’s possible that your exam results will show that a different service would better meet your dental care needs. Perhaps you’ll choose to go with implant retained dentures, which behave closest to natural teeth; maybe conventional full dentures are a better bet for your budget, or perhaps you just need a couple of crowns. At our Etobicoke denture clinic, we provide everything from basic preventative care and counselling on how to get the most out of your dentures to referring you to a professionals in dental surgery and complete dental reconstruction. We custom-craft all our crowns right on the premises, at our state of the art lab. For your convenience, we also accept most insurance plans and offer affordable dentures for just about any budget.
But now, back to one common solution for Dentures Direct patients: the removable, partial denture.
As the name implies, removable dentures can and should be removed by the wearer; but unlike full dentures, which are held in place by suction from your cheeks, tongue and palate, partial dentures connect to existing teeth via attachments or clasps that aren’t easily visible, so the partial denture looks just like the natural teeth surrounding it. But what does it feel like?
Like any prosthetic, removable partials take some time to get used to. They may feel chunky or bulky in your mouth, or difficult to put in and take out, or uncomfortable rubbing against your mouth and gums while you eat. Here are some do’s and don’ts when you have first been fitted with removable partial dentures.
