With Our In-House Denture Lab, We Offer Different Types Of Partial Dentures.
A partial denture rests on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture. They also offer a removable alternative to bridges.
Types of Partial Dentures
- Cast Metal Framework Partials: This type of partial denture is made with a metal framework in place to keep the prosthetic light, strong, and long-lasting. It is ideal for patients who have stable and healthy natural teeth with little to no concern about losing any more natural teeth within the next five years. These partials can be made of either titanium or chromium cobalt.
- Titanium Cast Partial Denture: It is made with medical grade titanium for an ultra-light and strong framework.Chromium Cobalt Partial Denture: It is made with noble and base material metals to have a light and durable finish to it.
- Acrylic Partial Dentures: Acrylic partials, also known as “flipper” dentures, are made for patients who need a temporary prosthetic device and expect some natural teeth to be extracted within five years. We make these dentures so that we are able to easily modify the dentures as our patient is transitioning from natural teeth to having no teeth. We make these dentures a little thicker than our framework partial dentures because they are not as strong and durable and do not have the same stability as a cast metal partial.
These dentures are great for partial immediate denture patients, patients who are expecting to lose more teeth within five years, and patients who will be transitioning to a complete or cast metal partial denture within a couple of years.
