Dr. James Gunelson helped design your partial denture to replicate the basic function and appearance of your missing teeth. The removable dental appliance was created in a professional dental lab from durable dental materials. Many partials also include locking hardware to connect the unit with the adjacent teeth in the area.  

Your partial denture will also need to be included in your daily oral hygiene routine. Giving it a thorough rinse will help to clear away residual denture adhesive while also providing a clean surface to re-apply the denture adhesive the next morning.

You should then brush your partial with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste like denture polish. You can then store your partial denture overnight by soaking it in water and keeping it in a safe place.

As durable as your partial denture is, it can still suffer from some long-term wear and tear. This is even more likely to be an issue if you have a bad habit of crunching on ice or nibbling on desktop items.

Any problem with your partial denture needs to be addressed and repaired by a dentist. This often requires you to forgo installing the partial denture to prevent the problem from harming your gums or chipping the surrounding teeth.

If you are in the Stanley, Wisconsin, area and you are having a problem with your partial denture you should call 715-644-3601 to speak to Dr. James Gunelson or one of the specialists at Stanley Hometown Dentistry LLC.
