If you’re like many of our denture patients who only require replacement of a few teeth, then partial and flexible dentures are for you!
Both are designed to work together with your remaining healthy teeth to create a natural looking smile. Traditional partial dentures, also known just as “partials”, use a metal cast frame work with an acrylic base and teeth and are held in place by your existing teeth. The biggest advantage to traditional partial dentures is cost, as they offer our patients an affordable way to regain a healthy smile.
Flexible dentures cost a bit more than traditional partials, but this higher-end product also gives wearers the most natural look available on the market today. Flexible partial dentures are manufactured using a high tech thermoplastic resin that can flex and secures to your remaining healthy teeth without the use of any metal for superior comfort and fit.
In addition to helping ensure that your remaining teeth don’t begin to shift, partial dentures also allow for improved chewing, enhanced speech clarity and don’t require the use of messy denture adhesives, pastes or powders.
And unlike fixed bridges that are cemented onto neighboring healthy teeth, both traditional and flexible partial dentures are removable for easy cleaning which frequently leads to superior long term oral health.
