Why Partial Dentures


For whatever reason, if you have lost any teeth due to trauma, periodontal disease or decay, Yanez Dental in Hanford can offer you quality Partial Denture Services that fit all your “Partial Denture” needs and meet all the standard requirements of the American Dental Association. For any reason, if you have yet to decide for proper replacement of your missing teeth, it is vital you should know that your remaining teeth - particularly the adjacent ones - are likely to drift out of place. Also, the affected portion of the jaw becomes more prone to potential gum infections and can consequently cause decay to the adjacent teeth as well.

A partial denture procedure is usually performed by using a metal outline that fastens to your natural teeth, or at times crowns are employed on your affected natural teeth working as a dock for the partial denture. The partial denture procedure offers removable attaching alternatives.

Partial Dentures


There exist two types of partial dentures: fixed and removable. Dr. Simon Yanez determines the best alternative for you, after a preliminary examination of your teeth and the gap that needs fixing. A Removable Partial Denture (RPD), is also known as a Removable Dental Bridge. It works to fills the gap between two healthy teeth.

Removable Partial Denture


A removable partial denture (RPD) procedure is initiated after a preliminary examination of your teeth, and evaluating the nature of damage that the procedure may cause. In Hanford, Yanez Dental helps determine the right material which includes an artificial tooth or set of teeth, made from durable high quality acrylic resins. Porcelain is always our first choice as a tooth material due to its natural appearance and resemblance to your original teeth.

The accessories such as an attachment which offers support to anchor the artificial tooth to your natural teeth consist of a customized frame to fit well into the teeth line to help make chewing and speaking effortless. These frames are typically created by using metal alloys that include chromium or nobelium; or with using a flexible material such as high-quality plastic. These removable attachments can effortlessly be attuned or fixed with a distinctive dental kit. These are ultra-light fittings and applied in patients who show an allergic response to acrylic materials or are troubled by the metallic taste. These removable attachments make the dental cleaning fairly smooth and cause the device to be somewhat less spongy than a fixed set of attachment as well. Sponginess is not good due to the fact that it comprises a replacement tooth and its fixtures. Partial dentures bid numerous benefits that include:

  • It makes chewing and talking effortlessly with easing the movement of the jaw.
  • Help restore the original shape of your face.
  • Diminish the risk of periodontal bugs.
