What are partial dentures in Merrillville, IN?
A partial denture is a plate that holds one or more false teeth. It can be made entirely of plastic or with a mixture of metal and plastic. With either material, the denture may have clips (clasps) to help keep the denture in place. These clasps may or may not be visible in the mouth.
Procedure for Partial Dentures in Merrillville, IN
Similar to the creation of complete dentures, to have partial dentures made, impressions and measurements will be taken of the mouth. Models, wax forms, and/or plastic patterns can be made to “try in” to check for color, shape, and fit. The denture itself will be created in a dental laboratory using the impressions and measurements that were taken. Once it has been created, adjustments can be made to ensure a good fit.
