Partial dentures have teeth set in pink acrylic material that attach to natural teeth in order to fill in gaps in the mouth. Ask a general dentist about getting partial dentures in place of a full denture with advice from a licensed dental assistant in this free video on dentures.
So, have you ever wondered what partial dentures look like? Well, my name is Michelle, and I'm a dental assistant with Solutionz, and today, I'm going to show you, what they look like. Right here, I have a perfect model, and basically, this is what a partial denture looks like. The purpose of a partial denture, is it's replacing certain missing teeth, that you might have in your mouth. Basically, it will replace the teeth. It's the teeth are set in acrylic, which is the pink colored material here, and also, it's usually, nine times out of ten, you have clasps that are attached with partial dentures, as you can see, right here, and what the clasps do, is they clasp on, they hook on to your natural teeth, and this is going to provide, to make sure that the denture stays in your mouth. It provides strength, and durability, when you're functioning with it, as far as if whenever you're chewing with it, or talking, it's going to keep it in place. It's going to help you function a lot better with it, with the clasp, but pretty much, this is what a partial denture looks like. It's called partial, because it's not a full denture, it's only replacing partial teeth, so definitely, you want to check with your general dentist, to see if getting a partial denture, would be a great option for you, but it is a great treatment option, and especially, if you do not want to get full dentures, a partial denture would probably be your best bet, to go for. Once again, my name is Michelle, and I'm a dental assistant with Solutionz, and I just showed you, on what a partial denture looks like.
