How can we help you?
At Azalea Dental, we pride ourselves on educating our patients about dental care so they can be an active participant in their own oral health.
As a patient, you have a right to be informed about your treatment. We make every effort to explain a procedure in enough detail for you to understand why it's important and how it can benefit your oral health.
But you may still have questions, and we've shared a few of those we hear most frequently. We're always here for you, so if you still need more information, please don't hesitate to contact our office.
As the name implies, a removable partial denture can easily be taken out of the mouth. Partial dentures usually have replacement teeth fixed to “gum” colored acrylic that may cover a metal framework. Partial dentures will usually have some form of clasp that grips your natural teeth for stability.
Caring for Your Partial Dentures
It takes practice to get used to a removable partial denture. It may feel odd and/or tight for the first few days. In time you will get used to it. However, it does take commitment and perseverance. You will need to return to the office several times for adjustments as we “fine tune” the fit of your new partial.
