A partial denture is essentially an abbreviated version of dentures that is designed by Dr. Scott Ferguson to replicate your missing teeth. Providing it with quality, daily care will increase your partial’s lifespan and preserve the investment in your improved oral function.

Many partial wearers use denture adhesive for an extra-secure hold. This also has the added benefit of helping block out food particles.

You should thoroughly rinse your partial at the end of each day. This will help clear away residual denture adhesive and provide a smooth surface so you can reapply the denture adhesive in the 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 overnight by soaking it in water and keeping it in a safe place.

Then you should maintain your daily oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing. Maintaining healthy gums will help the partial fit more comfortably as well as preserve the health of your remaining teeth.
