Partial Denture

Is a partial Denture right for you?

Today with the advancement of dental technology there are multiple options in partial denture designs for patients.

Removable Partial dentures

A removable partial denture (RPD) is a denture for a partially edentulous patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge (i.e. distal abutments) or financial limitations. Patients can remove and reinsert it when required without professional help. Rather than lying entirely on the edentulous ridge like complete dentures, removable partial dentures possess clasps of cobalt chrome metal or plastic that “clip” onto the remaining teeth, making the RPD more stable and retentive.

Fixed partial dentures

Fixed prosthodontics can be used to restore single or multiple teeth, spanning areas where teeth have been lost.  This type of restoration is cemented to the abutment teeth, they are fixed and only the dentist can remove it.  The materials used for this type of restoration are: metal -porcelain, zirconia or all ceramic bridges (metal free)

Flexible partial

Which is widely considered to be the most comfortable. The final restoration can now be made very quickly with innovations in digital technology. Flexible partials are becoming much more popular due to their aesthetic qualities. While the cost may be higher than a partial made with visible metal clasps, the results of the flexible partial are beautiful, with high levels of satisfaction. Flexible partial fabrication involves only non-invasive procedures, and serves as a virtually invisible tooth replacement option.
