PARTIAL DENTURES

Partial Dentures. A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth.

TYPES OF PARTIAL DENTURE:

CAST METAL PARTIAL DENTURES:The most common type of removable partial denture consists of high-quality replacement teeth on a rigid cast metal frame. Less expensive cast metal partials attach to the existing teeth with metal clasps, but precision attachments are usually preferred for aesthetic reasons. With proper care, a cast metal removable partial denture can last for many years.

ACRYLIC REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURE

Often referred to as a “flipper,” an acrylic removable partial denture is generally considered less optimal than a cast metal partial. The main reason is that the replacement teeth are set in a pink acrylic base that must be thick and bulky to minimize the risks for breakage.

FLEXIBLE PARTIAL DENTURES

If you experience discomfort from an acrylic or cast metal partial, or if you are allergic to acrylic, a flexible partial denture might be a better solution for you. Made from a thin, heat sensitive type of plastic, a flexible partial is both comfortable and highly realistic in appearance.

DENTAL IMPLANT RESTORATIONS

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
