What You Should Know About Partial Dentures | Sylvia Arsuaga DMD

Town Periodontist and Dentist

Posted on



When it comes to dentures, there are two main types: complete dentures, which replace all of your teeth, and partial dentures, which replace only a section. Here’s what you can expect when you visit Sylvia Arsuaga DMD at The Dental Equation for your denture appointment.

Initial Assessment
During your appointment, we’ll begin with X-rays to check for any issues that might affect the fit of your dentures. In some cases, we may need to add crowns to accommodate your new partial dentures. Once fitted, we’ll recommend keeping them in for a week to make any necessary adjustments.

Follow-Up Appointment
After receiving your partial dentures, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to address any concerns you may have during the first week. We’ll also discuss different care products available to you and provide guidance on how to wear and maintain your dentures.

Common Misconceptions
Let’s debunk some common misconceptions about denture care:

  1. Use the Right Tools: Always use a denture brush designed specifically for dentures, not a regular toothbrush, to avoid damaging them.
  2. Avoid Abrasive Toothpaste: Non-approved denture toothpaste can be too abrasive and cause damage. Stick to mild household soap and water instead.
  3. Choose ADA-Approved Cleansers: Look for denture cleaners labeled as ADA-acceptable to ensure they’re safe for your dentures.
  4. Act Quickly for Repairs: If your dentures become damaged, like chipped or missing teeth, contact your dentist immediately for repairs.

Conclusion
Whether you opt for partial or full dentures, understanding proper care is essential. Avoiding harmful cleansers and brushes and following your dentist’s recommendations will help your dentures last longer. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today.
