If you are new to the world of dentures but have recently found out that you need some then you may not know where to even begin— in fact, it may even seem a bit overwhelming. Luckily, here at Soft touch Dentistry, Dr. Nazila Bidabadi is here to help you in the decision-making process to ensure that you pick the right type of dentures for your mouth. To help you understand the basics, this article will discuss no wire and traditional partials.
Traditional Wire Partials
With traditional wire partial dentures, bent wires that look like paper clips are used to latch onto the adjacent teeth to hold the dentures in place. And although traditional wire partials have been around for decades and have been effective, they can sometimes rub against the teeth and gums and cause irritation and discomfort.
No Wire Partials
No wire partials have gained a lot of popularity in denture patients over the last several years because they tend to be more comfortable than traditional partials. No-wire partials are removable and are made of a flexible material so that it conforms a little more to our mouth. Plus, the good news about no wire partials is that they also look natural and resemble natural teeth and gums.
Just like with any dental procedure, there are pros and cons to both traditional and no-wire partials. If you are considering getting dentures but aren’t sure what type is best for you, Dr. Nazila Bidabadi can help. During your initial consultation and any follow-up appointments, he will show you your options and help answer any questions that you have so that you feel confident in your final decision.
