From The Author:

My intention in writing this book is to guide you through the multiplicity of choices that stand before you when requiring a removable partial denture. Choices your Dental Practitioner does not have the time to tell you about.
 

In many cases it's the domain of your Dental Practitioner to make the right choice for you; however, you should still understand what it is that you are purchasing, including all the pros and cons associated with each type of removable dental appliance.

 

Ask yourself if you have had any problems with a partial denture in the past? If the answer is yes, then you are simply accepting what your dental practitioner is offering you. There is, however, much more to a partial denture than a quick 15-minute initial appointment.

For example: Were you offered a plastic or metal frame partial? If so, why? Why was the suggestion skewed toward one rather than the other?  

Consider this:

  • Why pay a fortune for a metal frame when you are likely to lose your remaining teeth over the next year?

  • Has that expensive metal frame been designed to add teeth - if you lose another tooth? Or are you expected to purchase “another” new partial if you lose a tooth? (Frames can be designed to either add teeth later – or not!)  Hmmm!

  • How well will the front tooth/teeth match my existing natural teeth and, how do I keep that colour match without the false tooth/teeth looking old and dark six months after receiving my denture? 

       

There are many factors to consider when choosing a partial denture. Factors such as cost, longevity, natural looks, mechanical stability, ongoing tooth additions, and so on. All of these, and much more, are explained in detail as we go through the chapters.

 

Over my 35 years of practicing, I have seen far too many people “misinformed” because the practitioner has large bills to service. Partial dentures are expensive - Know before you go.
