Partial Dentures in Tampa

What Are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are removable dental devices crafted to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They comprise artificial teeth affixed to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, occasionally supported by a metal framework to secure the denture in place within the mouth. Unlike complete dentures, which replace all teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, partial dentures serve as solutions when some natural teeth are still present.

Who Should Consider Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are an excellent option for individuals who:

  • Have lost one or more teeth but still have healthy remaining teeth.
  • Are looking for a non-invasive and less permanent solution compared to dental implants.
  • They want to improve their ability to chew and speak efficiently.
  • Desire to maintain the alignment of their remaining teeth and prevent them from shifting.

What is the Partial Denture Procedure Process?

Understanding the steps involved in getting partial dentures can significantly ease your anxiety. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Initial Consultation: During your first visit, Dr. Taylor Lawrence Dietl and his team will evaluate your dental health, discuss your needs and preferences, and determine if partial dentures are the best solution for you.
  2. Impressions and Measurements: If partial dentures are right for you, we will take precise impressions and measurements of your mouth. This ensures your dentures will fit comfortably and function correctly.
  3. Denture Design and Fabrication: We will take the impressions and craft a custom partial denture in our dental laboratory. The design will consider your natural teeth’ color, shape, and size for a seamless look.
  4. Fitting Appointment: You will come in for a fitting once your partial dentures are ready. Dr. Dietl will ensure the dentures fit well and make necessary adjustments to maximize comfort.
  5. Follow-Up and Adjustments: After you’ve had time to wear your new dentures, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to address any discomfort or issues and make further adjustments if needed.

Benefits of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures offer numerous advantages, including:

Improved Functionality

Partial dentures offer a significant improvement in chewing and speaking abilities, restoring confidence in daily activities like eating and communicating.

Preventing Teeth Shifting

Partial dentures help maintain the alignment and stability of your remaining natural teeth by occupying the spaces left by missing teeth.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Partial dentures not only fill in the gaps left by missing teeth but also blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, resulting in a complete and natural-looking smile.


Partial dentures offer a more cost-effective solution for tooth replacement than alternatives like dental implants. With their relatively lower upfront cost and practical functionality, partial dentures provide an accessible option for restoring missing teeth and improving oral health without breaking the bank.

Partial Dentures Aftercare

Taking proper care of your partial dentures is vital for their longevity and your oral health. Here are some aftercare tips:

  • Daily Cleaning: Brush your dentures daily with a brush and mild denture cleaner. Avoid using regular toothpaste, as it can be abrasive.
  • Soaking: Soak your dentures overnight in a denture-cleaning solution to keep them moist and maintain their shape.
  • Oral Hygiene: Continue brushing and flossing your natural teeth and gums to prevent plaque buildup and maintain oral health.
  • Eating With Partial Dentures: Eating with partial dentures may initially feel different, but with practice, it becomes easier. Start with soft foods, cut food into small pieces, and chew slowly and evenly to minimize discomfort and avoid dislodging your dentures. Avoid sticky or hard foods, practice good oral hygiene, and be patient as you adjust to eating with partial dentures. 
  • Regular Check-Ups: Schedule regular dental check-ups to ensure your dentures function correctly and monitor your oral health.
