Partial Dentures Q&A

What are partial dentures?

An alternative to a dental bridge, partial dentures replace some of your teeth to maintain spacing and preserve your smile. As with complete dentures, Hunter’s Denture Studio makes partial dentures from top-of-the-line materials, and an elite denturist crafts them.

What are the different options in partial dentures?

Hunter's Denture Studio offers three options in partial dentures.

Acrylic partial dentures

Acrylic partial dentures are set in an acrylic base, just like complete dentures. This type of partial denture has small wires that attach to your natural teeth to use them for support.

Flexible partial dentures

Flexible partial dentures are made from a bendable plastic that conforms to the contours of your mouth for optimal comfort. Flexible partial dentures are free of all metal and wires.

Metal partial dentures

Metal partial dentures are the strongest of the three partials. They have a metal frame, rather than an acrylic or flexible plastic frame. The metal frame attaches to the back of your existing natural teeth to use them for support.

The Hunter’s Denture Studio team can assess your mouth to help you choose the right partial dentures for you. 

Are partial dentures stable?

Yes, partial dentures are stable because they’re expertly crafted using a precise mold of your mouth. Your partial dentures get support from both your healthy teeth and from the custom-crafted frame. The experts at Hunter’s Denture Studio use the most advanced materials and techniques to ensure that your dentures are always stable and secure.

What if my partial dentures feel loose?

If your partial dentures feel loose, it’s an indicator that you need a denture adjustment or repair. Sometimes, you can’t see tiny cracks or changes in the denture base, but they can have a big impact on the way your dentures fit. Loose dentures could also be a sign that it’s time for a partial denture reline. If your partial dentures don’t fit right because of a defect, your Hunter’s Denture Studio warranty covers the repair for one year following purchase.

What is a denture reline?

A denture reline is a procedure in which the Hunter’s Denture Studio team builds up a worn-down or poorly fitting denture base. Typically, you need denture relines every three to five years as a part of your normal denture maintenance. You might also need a denture reline at other times if your jaw or mouth changes significantly in shape.
