I don't know where you live, but in the UK, this type of work is best carried out by a general dental practitioner. Unless you are referred, you do not need to see a specialist for this simple treatment.

You recently had a partial plate put in your mouth but cant stand to wear it what do you do?

A partial is an artificial body part, very much like a prosthetic leg or a glass eye. It takes time to adjust to wearing it. Sometimes fine adjustments need to be made by the dentist to get it to fit perfectly. Your dentist should make these adjustments at little or no charge, at least for the first few months after the initial placement. If you are unable to make the adjustment to wearing the partial after several months, you should discuss your options with your dentist. You may be a candidate for dental implants. They are more expensive than a partial, but they are far more easy to get used to, and they are a permanent alternative to partials.

How do you Fix a broken tooth of a partial?

Don't!! I repeat DON'T mess up your partial just go to a dentist. If they have a lab on site they will take care of it for you quick. If not and you go to the dentist early in the morning and they have a lab pick up the case it will be ready for you the next day or later on that day say 4 or 5 hours later depending on the lab. If you have insurance you won't be responsible for a copay unless of course your insurance schedule says you have one. Good luck!

What is a dental partial?

A partial denture is a prosthetic that you place in your mouth to replace the function and appearance of missing teeth. It is usually made of metal and plastic. It is removable and requires cleaning at least daily. It is held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining natural teeth. It will occasionally need to be adjusted by your dentist to fit properly.To see a picture of an upper partial denture, click on the Related Link below.
