If you are missing one or more of your teeth, you may want to consider restoring your smile with partial dentures. At Murphy Dental Home, we are proud to offer quality, affordable restorations that will improve the quality of your life and leave you smiling with confidence in no time!
Partial dentures are restorations typically used to replace a single tooth or several teeth, unlike full dentures, which are designed to replace all teeth in an arch. Partials consist of artificial replacement teeth attached to gum-colored plastic resin bases. We carefully color match your restoration to your surrounding teeth, with incredibly natural-looking results.
Partial dentures are connected to your teeth using metal frameworks and clasps and can be easily taken out for cleaning or during sleep. We may recommend using crowns on your natural teeth to improve the fit of your restorations. With partials, you'll restore and protect your natural, youthful smile.
Partial dentures offer an affordable solution to restoring missing teeth. Your new restorations will maintain the shape of your face and will allow you to eat, chew, and speak with comfort and confidence. Partials prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, which can lower your risk of developing many oral health problems including cavities and gum disease. With partials, you’ll enjoy a more youthful appearance and will smile with confidence once again.
Partials will require a brief adjustment period. In the beginning, they may feel awkward and uncomfortable. That is normal, and you will soon become accustomed to your new restoration. You may experience a sore spot due to your denture putting too much pressure on a particular area. We will make any necessary adjustments to ensure you enjoy a comfortable fit.
It’s important that you practice good oral hygiene and clean your mouth carefully before inserting your partial denture. You will need to keep your restoration clean using denture cleaner daily to remove any food particles or debris and to avoid any staining. We will provide you with care directions to keep your partial in tip-top shape.
Unlike your natural teeth, partial dentures are delicate and can get damaged easily, so it's important to handle them with care. If your denture ever becomes loose, cracked, or damaged, don’t try to repair it or adjust it yourself. Instead, contact us immediately. We will make any adjustments or repairs as necessary.
Make sure to maintain your routine dental exams and cleanings every six months to keep your mouth healthy and clean. During your visits, we will examine your partial denture to ensure it continues to function well. Caring for your partials will allow you to enjoy a healthy smile for years to come.
