You have (possibly) 4 options 1. do nothing, leave a space, and don't replace the teeth 2. possibly a "bridge" or a "fixed partial denture" (FPD) 3. possibly a "plate" or a removable partial denture (RPD) 4. possibly an implant(s) with a crown The answer depends on a variety of factors and will need to be discussed with your dentist. Not all options work in all circumstances.
Both are able to provide partial dentures. I would go to who you are most comfortable with be it you dentist or a specialist.
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.
Yes, you can get a replacement. You will need to leave your partial with your dentist and it probably won't be ready for about a week.
Any general dentist can make a partial denture for a senior. However, there is a specialist dentist called a prosthodontist who specializes in dentures and partials.Just search Google for 'prosthodontist' in your area.
A dark spot on a valplast partial could be a stain. The easiest thing to do would be to take it to a dentist for a professional cleaning.
i dont know ask a dentist :)
This needs an answer from a qualified dentist.

There could be a few different reasons on why a dentist would recommend a partial versus and having teeth pulled. The main reason would probably be because the teeth are no more good.
No. If you have a chipped tooth or a tooth that isn't the way it's supposed to, the dentist will have to remove it before you can have braces.
To relieve pain from an infected tooth, in my case its a partial tooth infected that my bridge is glued onto. Very painful!
You should have gone to a dentist before this.
Without insurance, partial dentures can be extremely expensive, going into the $1000's of dollars. With insurance, it can still be very expensive. So, it is best to consult a dentist to find out what the actual cost will be.
I had all my upper teeth extracted and a full plate made, and 6 of my bottom teeth with a partial plate mad and spent 2800 after my insurance. I was also put under anesthesia for the extractions
“I have lost my lower partial. I have UMR dental insurance but can not afford the copay...my dentist has all the info but the last pair was $300 co pay and probably more now...any suggestions?” “I have lost my lower partial.

The dentist told him a partial denture would fix the problem, so three perfectly good teeth made way for four.
break out The teeth (usually made from acrylic) are bonded to the partial using mechanical interlocks. When properly fabricated, the bond is extremely strong. But in some cases the teeth themselves might crack or weaken and can then separate. In those cases, a dentist can send the partial to a qualified dental lab to have the tooth reattached or replaced.
Unless you can demonstrate that the first dentist was somehow negligent or incompetent, no, you should not expect a rebate. Root canal therapy is not guaranteed. These procedures can and do fail through no one's fault.
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!
Currently, Chuck is not on tv, but NBC has stated that they're bringing it back in March for a possibly partial season.
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.
