A removable partial denture is designed specifically to meet the needs of the patient and can replace one or more missing teeth. Natural appearance and speech clarity are restored, as is the ability to eat more efficiently.
Partial Denture Types and Materials
Partial dentures are created out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic. A patient’s specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the partial denture and every effort is made to preserve the remaining teeth and oral tissues.
Maribel Caudillo, DDS will design your partial denture so that the chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface of the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Changes to your remaining teeth may be recommended to help balance these forces.
Duraflex Partial Dentures are generally preferred as they are esthetically superior. They are thinner and more hygienic than metal partials. Duraflex partials are made of a thermoplastic material that is lightweight and flexible. Duraflex partials appear natural without metal clasps, are comfortable, and easy to adjust and polish. Maribel Caudillo, DDS will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation.
