How Does Getting a Partial or Denture Work?
Whether you get partial dentures depends on how many teeth you miss. Those missing all their teeth will get a full denture, whereas if you only miss a few teeth in an arch, you may get a partial denture.
The process begins with the dentist taking an impression of your mouth to get the correct size for the denture. The dentist also performs a health check and makes sure that you don’t have any underlying health issues that would prevent you from being able to wear a denture, such as infection or gum disease.
The impression is sent to a denture lab; the dentures are created before the patient returns for a final fitting.
