All about partials.
Partial dentures, like a full set of dentures, can take some getting used to. Follow the instructions given to you by your dentist, and you'll soon get the hang of it. Remember, partials should fit in your mouth with relative ease, so you should never force a partial into place by biting down on it. This could bend or break the clasps on your partial dentures.
And a simple daily routine can make caring for your partials easier than ever. PoliCare™ will help you know what products you'll need to care for your partial dentures — and how to properly use those products.
Brushing and soaking your partial every single day gives you better results than brushing or soaking alone. By following a regular routine, you will help support a healthy mouth, avoid embarrassing mouth odor and prolong the life of your partial. Plus, a regular denture care routine can help you make time to take care of your remaining natural teeth, too.
As a partial wearer, you might not think that you could benefit from a denture adhesive cream like zinc-free Super Poligrip®. But adhesives do more than keep dentures in – they help keep food particles out.
Getting kiwi seeds, pop corn hulls or any little bits of food stuck between your gums and denture hurts - even when you're only wearing partial dentures. It's the biggest complaint among denture and partial wearers. Luckily, a little dab of zinc-free Super Poligrip® seals out those potentially painful particles – so you can enjoy your favorite foods more than ever.
Even though you're not wearing a full set of dentures, you still may experience difficulty getting used to eating and talking while wearing your partial denture. For tips on how you can adjust more easily, take a look at the Eating & Talking section of this site.
