Types of Partial Dentures
When it comes to partial dentures, there are different types available to meet your specific needs. One common type is removable partial dentures. As the name suggests, these dentures can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base. Removable partial dentures typically have metal clasps that hold them in place by attaching to your natural teeth.
Another type of denture is implant-supported dentures. These dentures are more secure and stable than removable ones. Implant-supported dentures are attached to dental implants, which are surgically placed into the jawbone. This provides a strong foundation for the dentures and prevents them from shifting or slipping.
When considering partial dentures, it is essential to seek the expertise of a prosthodontist. A prosthodontist is a specialist in restorative dentistry and can ensure that your partial dentures are customized to fit your unique oral structure. This personalized fit enhances comfort and functionality, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

A partial denture serves to replace multiple missing teeth. A removable partial denture attaches to existing teeth to hold it in place. If you require a partial denture, Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta offers custom partial dentures designed to fit into your mouth seamlessly. These prosthetics will restore your smile without sacrificing your speaking or chewing abilities. They are made of a material that mimics the feel and function of natural teeth, meaning that you will be able to smile confidently and securely.
Fixed partial dentures offer better stability because they are anchored into the jaw or are bonded to other teeth. Patients who have sufficient bone available in their jaw may want to consider partial dentures fixed with dental implants for the superior stability they provide. Patients who do not have the necessary bone may be also be candidates for bone grafting. This procedure can provide sufficient bone to serve as an anchor for the implants.
If a patient does have the required bone, one of our prosthodontists will then place dental implants into the gums and jawbone. Over time, the implants will fuse with the bone, ensuring solid support for the partial denture. Once enough time has passed to ensure the proper fusion of bone and dental implant, usually 4-6 months, abutments will be attached to the implant. The custom made denture will remain firmly in place. You will even be able to eat steak without any worry.
