Whether you have 1 missing tooth or multiple, there’s a solution to help you! After tooth loss not only do you lose bone but natural teeth surrounding this past tooth can shift into the space. In order to keep the positioning of your remaining teeth.
There are many different styles of partial dentures. We offer a variety.
A partial denture can fall under two categories: tooth-supported or tooth and tissue-supported. The number of teeth remaining, the position, and the stability of the teeth are only a few of the factors that help to determine what style or type of partial denture would be best for you.
Partials can be made of different materials, including acrylics or a metal/acrylic combination.
The following briefly explains the differences:
• Acrylic partials are usually used as a transitional or temporary replacement of missing teeth, depending on your personal circumstances.
Metal Partials -commonly called a cast partial- is usually a more rigid and permanent style of denture. The metal is either a highly compatible chrome cobalt alloy or titanium, which are both ultra thin, light and very strong.
Flexible partial dentures– these are dentures fabricated using a flexible monomer free plastic which is great for allergies and allows some flex to occur without fracture of the prostheses
With newer designs, materials and techniques, partials are more comfortable than ever before.
