A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available, namely Acrylic and nylon thermoplastic (known as Flexible Partial dentures).
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile! And we can help you in whatever situation you may have.
This restoration method is used to restore your smile and mouth function if all your teeth have been lost. The dentures are custom created to resemble natural teeth and are positioned into a patients mouth to take the place of where the natural teeth used to be. Complete dentures are removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.
A removable partial denture is a device used when one or more natural teeth still remain in the upper or lower jay. They usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base which is held in place in the mouth.
Flexible partial dentures
Flexible partial dentures are the comfortable, beautiful, and affordable choice. It was long thought that removable partial dentures had to be rigid to be effective. The innovation of the Flexible Denture allows the restoration to adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth.
The flexibility, combined with strength and light weight, provides total comfort and great looks!
The preparation is relatively simple because your natural teeth don't need to be altered in any way. The partial denture is virtually invisible because there are no telltale metal clasps and the material itself blends with the tissue in your mouth so that the only thing that shows is your beautiful smile.
When considering a removable partial, many people find the Flexible Partial to be the most comfortable option, and the final restoration can be made very quickly! While the cost is often higher than a partial made with visible metal clasps, the results of the flexible partial are beautiful, and patient satisfaction is very high. The flexible partial involves only non-invasive procedures, and gives you confidence in your restoration while talking, eating, and most importantly: smiling!
