What Are Claspless Partial Dentures?
Claspless partial dentures are similar to traditional partial dentures in that they also are fabricated with a metal supporting substructure and acrylic teeth and gums, but they do not have the metal clasps. Traditional partial dentures use metal clasps to gently clasp onto remaining teeth to help the denture stay still. A claspless partial denture is the most aesthetic partial denture in that it can be fabricated so that no metal will show while smiling.
The claspless denture gets its retention from precision attachments that are often connected to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth areas. These precision attachments sometimes require that the tooth receive a survey crown. Dental implants are also often used to increase the retention of a partial denture. Dental implants are located under the partial and have an attachment with the partial denture.
Common Questions About Partial Dentures
Dr. Roe takes the time to answer all of his patients’ questions during their appointments. Here are a few of the most common questions about partial dentures:
Are Partials Considered Dentures?
Any removable replacement prosthetic that is placed in the mouth is considered a denture. These come in either a full denture that replaces all of the teeth in your mouth or a partial that replaces some of your teeth.
What Does a Partial Denture Feel Like?
All dentures have an adjustment period for a patient to get comfortable with it. Our office works to create a customized denture that feels good. We’ll adjust it as much as needed for our patients to get the fit they need.
Why Does My Partial Denture Hurt?
For the first few days, you will likely experience some discomfort from adjusting to the new claspless partial denture. However, if it continues to rub or be a problem, you need to come back into our office. We’ll make the necessary adjustments for it to be comfortable.
How do Claspless Partial Dentures Stay In?
The claspless partial denture is attached to natural teeth in the mouth. The difference between this and a traditional partial is that you cannot see the metal clasps. This is a good option for patients that need the partial denture attached to the teeth that are visible when they smile.
How Many Teeth Can Be on a Partial Denture?
A partial can have as few as 1 tooth up to almost all of the teeth that are missing in the upper or lower arch. The claspless option allows your partials to stay in place and be less susceptible to moving while eating.
