Depending on the teeth remaining in your oral cavity, cast metal partial dentures may be completely tooth supported, tissue/tooth supported or implant /tissue supported. A removable partial denture may help preserve the natural tooth placement of your existing teeth. Partial dentures are designed so that your chewing forces can be distributed evenly over the entire remaining teeth and soft tissues.
A removable partial denture will assist in the support of your natural teeth, help you to chew your food properly, improve speech, give you lip and cheek support and add enjoyment to your life.
Flexible partial dentures are also available. Flexible partials offer the benefits of superior esthetics, comfort, function and bio-compatibility. The translucent material blends naturally with the tissue tone and replaces metal clasps. If you have an aversion to metals, this may be the product for you.
A partial denture is essential. It is important to restore the mouth to its original state. Upper dentures that are not supported by lower teeth can cause many problems. A correctly fitting denture results when the fitting surfaces work together in perfect balance.
