At Metro Dental Care we construct full dentures, upper dentures or lower dentures, partial dentures both in plastic and metal partial dentures.
Dentures can be made and inserted after teeth are removed immediately. Healing may take several months. To make this possible, we take measurements and make the models of your jaws during a preliminary visit.
An advantage of immediate dentures is that you do not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the period of healing in the first three months after the removal of teeth. When gums shrink, immediate dentures may require relining to fit properly.
There are two types of partial dentures : plastic partials and metal partials, the difference being the material connecting the teeth together.
Plastic partials use gum coloured plastic. In many cases they prove to be quite satisfactory but for superior comfort, fit, strength and durability then the metal design is a better option.
The metal used is cobalt-chrome alloy which is very strong and can be casted with precisely fitting clasps. These make the metal denture a much tighter fit while the strength of the metal allows the denture to be a lot thinner and more comfortable to wear.
