Replace Missing Teeth with Partial Dentures in Winnipeg

When you lose teeth your smile changes, your speech may slur and chewing may become more difficult. If you’ve only lost some teeth and still have natural teeth remaining, you will want to receive partial dentures from Eden Denture Clinic.

Partial dentures will replace several teeth, but not all of them. They are a removable appliance or bridge that will consist of your replacement teeth that are attached to a gum-coloured acrylic base. These can also be connected by metalwork to hold the denture in place.

Denture Safety Tips

You should not wear your partial denture all day. It is recommended to remove it at night and put it back in the morning. This process is best to maintain the strength of your jawbone and limit pressure points and sore spots in your mouth.

Eating & Speaking with Partial Dentures

Partial dentures make eating and speaking easier for you, but it also takes practice. You’ll want to start by eating small, soft foods to allow you to adjust to chewing. Keep the pressure even in your mouth by chewing on both sides, and it is best to stay away from sticky or hard foods as well as gum. If you find that speaking some words is difficult at first, practice reading the words in front of a mirror for practice.

Tips for Partial Denture Care

Just like with your natural teeth, partial dentures require maintenance and care. To have a healthy and clean mouth you need clean teeth. Tips for care of your partial dentures and remaining natural teeth include:

  • Clean your partial dentures every day
  • Brush the surfaces gently
  • Do not use toothpaste
  • Soak while not wearing
  • Rinse well after cleansing
  • Brush your natural teeth twice daily
  • Keep dentures in a safe place away from children and pets
