Partials at Kraklow Family Dentistry

Dr. Donna Kraklow’s family dental practice offers the tremendous benefits of partials — partial dental plates — as standard care. Finding partials is often the best solution to missing teeth, and Dr. Kraklow offers budget-friendly partial plates as an option when your remaining teeth are healthy. A partial plate gives you all the benefits of chewing and smiling with relatively mild maintenance requirements. The plates can even be reworked to accommodate future tooth loss.

What Are Partials

Dr. Kraklow can design a partial denture for you. Partials consist of replacement teeth that attach to pink or gum-colored bases that mimic the look of natural teeth. This treatment option usually has an internal metal framework with clasps that attach to healthy teeth. However, Dr. Kraklow can also design a plate with precision attachments that look more natural. These are generally more aesthetically pleasing than metal clasps, which are usually visible.

How to Manage Partials Near Me

At first, your denture may feel bulky and cumbersome. All dentures come with an adjustment period, during which Dr. Kraklow makes every effort to fine-tune your fit. She can also teach you the proper way to manage your denture. Our tips for adjusting to partial dentures include learning how to eat properly. That often means retraining how you eat. It’s important to chew evenly on both sides of your mouth. Common questions and answers about partial dental plates include the following:

  • Q. Should I use a denture adhesive?
    A: Adhesives can help your dentures fit more snugly and speed the adjustment process. Dr. Kraklow will happily recommend an adhesive based on your preferences.
  • Q. How long does it take to adjust?
    A. The adjustment period can be as short as three days, or it may take longer. Lower plates usually require a longer period of adjustment, and upper plates temporarily affect your ability to taste food properly.

Choosing a local dentist like Dr. Kraklow is important if you need an adjustment, recommendation about tooth care, or adding a tooth to your plate.
