Partial Dentures

An example of a prosthetic partial dentureA removable partial denture replaces one or more missing teeth. Your appearance, speech, and ability to eat are restored.

Partial dentures are created out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic. A patient’s specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the partial denture and every effort is made to construct a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues.

Dr. Hoffman or Dr. Cohen will design your partial denture so that the chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface are of the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Changes to your remaining teeth may be recommended to help equalize these forces.

Metal partials are generally preferred as they are structurally superior. They are thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are typically used as a transitional or temporary partial. Drs. Hoffman or Cohen will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation.
