If you are only missing one or a few teeth, a partial denture, also known as a bridge, could be the answer! At Swiss Denture Clinic, the process towards providing our patients with partial dentures includes a first consultation, a dental impressions appointment followed by a fitting appointment after which the patient can start using the prosthesis and come back for final adjustments.
Most patients use partial dentures either temporarily or long-term, depending on their needs. Temporary acrylic dentures can be used before a surgery, or during the healing period after teeth extractions, to be replaced with permanent ones once the healing is complete. Temporary partial dentures can be worn for up to 2 years.
Long-term partial dentures with metal frameworks, on the other hand, can last for up to 5 to 7 years with good care and annual checkups.
Our clinic offers a wide range of removable partial dentures that are typically made of replacement teeth attached to a gum-coloured plastic base, which can be attached by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth.
A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your remaining natural teeth or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to attach to your natural teeth with devices called precision attachments.
We also offer implant-supported partial dentures, which are sometimes recommended to give extra support to an unstable lower jaw prosthesis.
