Overlay Partial Denture for Bite Opening

 

 

 

An overlay partial denture is compared to a flexible partial denture in this blog.  An overlay partial is described and illustrated above.

All partial dentures are designed to fit around the remaining teeth and replace missing teeth.  There are many designs for partial dentures from complex to simple.  Some partial dentures use precision attachments instead of the clasps that are on a ‘standard’ partial denture.

An overlay partial is designed to ‘open the bite’ for a better occlusion or bite.  You can see an example of an overlay partial above.  Without this partial in, the patient has a very deep bite which means that there is a lot of overlap between the upper and lower teeth.  The overlap was so extensive in this case that the patient was severely wearing out (thinning) his natural lower teeth!

The bite is the same with the partial in or out. Flexible lower partial denture uses tooth-colored clasps for better aesthetics.

How does an overlay partial denture differ from a standard partial?

 

  1. An overlay partial denture will cover the chewing surfaces of all the teeth on one arch or most of the teeth.
  2. An overlay partial denture will be more expensive due to the additional laboratory time required to create appropriate anatomy for each tooth.
  3. There should always be a reason for the use of an overlay partial denture. Ask your dentist to explain the benefits and contraindications between an overlay and a standard partial.
  4. The material covering the teeth in an overlay partial denture can be made of porcelain, composite, or metal.

A flexible partial denture uses a very strong, special, and flexible plastic to hold in the teeth. This material can be very strong even though it is very thin.  It is less noticeable than a partial that uses metal clasps but it may not last as long.  It is usually more comfortable for patients and easier to get used to!

Having a well-made full set of teeth improves your life and preserves the remaining teeth by helping to share the load and supporting the remaining teeth.  The forces of your bite can cause teeth to loosen especially when there are missing teeth or bone loss.  We love to offer our patients options about replacing their teeth.  Our office is in Grand Junction, Colorado but we use laboratories across the United States to make our removable partials for us.  We select dental laboratories based on who delivers the highest quality product and stands behind their treatment so that we can do the same for our patients!

Yours for better dental health,

  21. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  49. I have to express some thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular setting. Because of exploring through the world-wide-web and obtaining concepts which were not powerful, I believed my entire life was over. Being alive without the answers to the difficulties you have solved all through your good site is a crucial case, and those which might have badly affected my career if I hadn’t discovered the website. Your good natural talent and kindness in controlling all the details was vital. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a step like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks so much for your professional and effective guide. I will not be reluctant to refer the sites to any individual who should receive tips about this topic.

If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
