Whether you are missing one tooth or several teeth, there are removable appliances that can replace these missing teeth and bring back the form and function into your smile. Partial dentures are made to closely resemble your natural teeth.
While dentures are excellent options for tooth replacement, it is important to remember that they can never perform in the same manner that natural teeth can.
Types of Partial Dentures
Dentures over a normal course of time will wear and need to be replaced or relined in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dental examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or change.
Metal Framework Partial Dentures
This type of partial denture is made with a metal framework in place to keep the prosthetic light, strong and long lasting. It is ideal for patients who have stable and healthy natural teeth with little to no concern of loosing any more natural teeth within the next five years. These partials can be made of either titanium or chromium cobalt.
Acrylic Partial Dentures
These partial dentures are made for patients that need a temporary prosthetic device and are expecting some of the natural teeth to be extracted within five years. We make these dentures so that we are able to easily modify the dentures as our patient is transitioning from natural teeth to having no teeth.
Well-Fitting, Natural-Looking Partial Dentures
A comfortable fit is imperative with a partial denture. When you experience tooth loss, the bone and gum may shrink over time. A partial denture that had a very precise fit at first, may begin to slip or click. Denture creams and adhesives may temporarily solve the problem, but a good denture will fit snugly without these aids.
If your partial denture starts to slide or makes speaking difficult, make sure to visit our Cosmetic dentists . Dr. Tehranian can refit your removable denture and alleviate any discomfort. By replacing teeth, partial dentures return function allowing you to eat and chew comfortably. And because your teeth support full cheeks, dentures help restore a younger look by filling out a sunken appearance. With a fully restored set of teeth, you’ll have the self-assurance to laugh and smile with friends and family.
If you’re missing teeth, don’t let it affect your oral health and take away your quality of life. Call our Dental Practice in Preston and schedule a denture consultation today.

Preventing Denture pain, soreness, chewing problems
Inaccurately fitting dentures are the main cause of a lot of the problems with dentures and there is a technology and art to creating a perfect denture fit, which Dr. Tehranian employs.
Another major cause of denture problems is poor alignment and poor bite (the way your teeth come together and function). Dr. Tehranian ensures your dentures are accurately aligned, either with each other or with the remainder of your teeth. Aligning the dentures correctly will also give you a more attractive look and prevent premature wrinkles around the lips or at the corners of the mouth.
Second Opinion Denture Consultation
Dr. Tehranian understands the importance of finding the right dental treatment plan with a dentist that you can trust. If you have been told that you need dentures, but aren't sure about the correct treatment plan, Dr. Tehranian will be happy to provide you with a second opinion. He will evaluate your dental health, explain the types of procedures available to you, and help you decide on a treatment plan that is effective and affordable.
