Metal Partial Dentures IFU

Metal Partial Dentures

Metal partial dentures are a type of removable dental prosthetic device used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are typically made of a metal framework with acrylic resin and/or porcelain teeth attached to it. Dandy metal frameworks are custom-made to fit your mouth and are designed to be as comfortable and unobtrusive as possible.

Seating the denture

Seating a metal partial denture in the mouth can be done using the following steps:

  1. Ensure that the partial is clean and free of any debris.
  2. Rinse your mouth with warm water before inserting the partial denture.
  3. Gently place the partial denture in the mouth and use your fingers to guide it into place. Avoid using excessive force or pushing the partial denture too far.
  4. Gently bite down on the partial denture to ensure proper fit and stability.
  5. Ensure you follow the dentist's guidance on using your partial denture, including details on the daily duration of wearing it and the appropriate times for removing and cleaning the appliance.

Cleaning and Care

DAILY CLEANING

To clean metal partial dentures, patients should follow these steps:

  • Take out the partial denture and clean the teeth and the denture independently. Use only gentle, approved denture pastes on the denture to prevent scratching the acrylic material.
  • Rinse the dentures under warm (not hot) water after meals to clear away food particles.
  • Brush the dentures daily using a soft denture brush and a cleaner suitable for metal partials, like Polident Antibacterial Cleanser.
  • When treating your dentures, brush them with a denture brush to remove any debris, and then soak them in distilled water and a recommended denture solution following the manufacturer's treatment instructions.
  • Rinse well with warm water before reinserting.

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Store the metal partial dentures in a clean, dry place when not in use. Avoid exposing the metal partial dentures to excessive heat or pressure, which may cause warping or other damage.
  • Partial dentures are designed to last several years with proper care and maintenance. Patients should contact the dental practice for evaluation and repair if dentures become damaged or lose fit.

CAUTIONS:

Avoid soaking your partial dentures in any liquid for longer than the cleaning solution's manufacturer recommends.

Avoid soaking your partial dentures in hard water. Over time, exposure to tap water containing elevated chlorine levels could tarnish the metal.

Do not immerse your partial dentures in water exceeding 45°C/113°F to prevent warping.

Use only approved cleaners for metal partial dentures and avoid abrasive toothpastes, as they can damage the device's appearance.

DO dispose of the cleaning solution after every use. Rinse your partial dentures well before use.
