Partials FAQ Ask The Prosthodontist Chris Mc Farland Question:
Reusing partials: I have four permanent teeth left on top. They need to be pulled. I have a partial that replaces the teeth previously pulled.

I want to know if my old partial and the one I have now can be remolded and made into a top plate. I really need these remaining teeth pulled. They are hurting and breaking my fillings.

Is there any way I can use these partials. It would be greatly appreciated. I have no dental insurance so I would have to pay out of pocket to have this procedure done. Please please tell me it can be done. .... Visitor from Georgia

Answer:
There is just no way to convert a partial to a denture. It would weigh too much and never fit correctly.

When you talk about losing four teeth, there is going to be a lot of change to your jawbone and this needs to heal and then make something at that time that will fit and be comfortable.
