Partial Dentures Q & A

What are Partial Dentures versus Full Dentures?

The dentists at Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center turn to dentures, whether partial or full, to replace your missing teeth. Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth, complete with natural gum and tooth color, and they’re designed with your comfort in mind.

What sets dentures apart is that you can remove them for easy cleaning.

Partial dentures are a great option if you’re missing a group of teeth. Partial dentures are supported by a metal framework that attaches to your neighboring teeth. Since these teeth act as anchors, the dentist may recommend placing a crown over them to boost their strength and stability.

What are the Options in Dentures?

Dentures have come a long way over the years — with new polymers that mimic your natural teeth and gums in every way, your partial dentures will be your little secret. At Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center, the denturists hand-picked several top-of-the-line denture products, including:

  • IPN Denture Sets: IPN, or Interlocking Polymer Network, denture sets were developed, tested, and approved by more than 2,000 dentists across North America. Each IPN tooth features three layers of different shades of materials in five distinct aesthetic zones for life-like translucency. The partial dentures are durable and can last more than 25 years.
  • Classic Partial Denture: The technicians at Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center make classic partial dentures, which are a more affordable option. These partial dentures are durable and natural-looking, and they are a great option for transitional dentures if you have teeth that the dentists need to extract.
  • Lucitone 199: A key part of any partial denture is its base. Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center offers Lucitone 199, which features resistance to flexure fatigue, excellent tissue coloration, and a variety of shades.

How Quickly Can I Get Partial Dentures?

In order to provide prompt service and quality control, Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center houses an on-site lab. Kevin Charron, lab manager, and brother to head denturist Val Charron, has 25 years of experience producing dental products that patients can rely on, without having to wait weeks for an outside lab.

In many cases, the technicians are able to offer same-day replacement teeth. If it’s not possible in your case, rest assured that your new partial dentures are manufactured as quickly as possible.
