Clasp Fort McMurray

Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than metal clasps and they are nearly invisible. Crowns on your natural teeth may improve the fit of a removable partial denture and they are usually required with attachments. Dentures with precision attachments generally cost more than those with metal clasps. Consult with Dr. Yu to find out which type is right for you.

For the first few weeks, your new partial denture may feel awkward or bulky. However, your mouth will eventually become accustomed to wearing it. Inserting and removing the denture will require some practice. Follow all instructions given by Dr. Yu and the staff at the Smile Station Dental. Your denture should fit into place with relative ease. Never force the partial denture into position by biting down. This could bend or break the clasps.

Dr. Yu will give you specific instructions about how long the denture should be worn and when it should be removed. Initially, you may be asked to wear your partial denture all the time. Although this may be temporarily uncomfortable, it is the quickest way to identify those denture parts that may need adjustment. If the denture puts too much pressure on a particular area, that spot will become sore. Dr. Yu will adjust the denture to fit more comfortably. After making adjustments, he will probably recommend that you take the denture out of your mouth before going to bed and replace it in the morning.
