During my recent visit to my dentist for my annual prophylaxis, I told her that the my partial is bothering me. It is rubbing onto the tooth and it is painful sometimes. I asked her if she could do something to adjust it and she she did. As a result, that particular tooth developed a cavity. She also told me to use a pronamel toothpaste instead of the one that I was using. After she adjusted the partial, it is not bothering my tooth anymore, it's not hard to remove it, and I think that my cavity is slowly going away. I also have to use an extra soft toothbrush.
