PARTIAL DENTURES ARE USED AS THE REPLACEMENT FOR MISSING TEETH.
Partial dentures are composed of different materials. When a patient still has some of his or her natural teeth and would like to keep the teeth, partial dentures can fill the gaps. Therefore, partial dentures are an excellent solution to keep your smile forever even if you’re missing some teeth.
Partial dentures make eating much easier. They are also removable. For a person suffering from missing teeth, partial dentures help the patient to speak clearly, even though it requires a little time and practice.
PARTIAL DENTURES - FLEXIBLE VS. CAST
Flexible partial dentures:
Flexible partial dentures are made from Valplast and have a good retention on teeth with good undercuts. Valplast flexible partial dentures are made from a flexible plastic material which fits neatly into your mouth and is virtually invisible.
Flexible partial dentures are well-known for their features of high customization, high resistance, unbreakability, stiffness, proper fitting, and fine tissue compatibility.
Cast partial dentures (cast metal frame):
Cast partial dentures have an underlying metal framework with clasps and milled crowns. They are also referred to as conventional cast (metal frame) partial dentures. The best and most unique property of cast partial dentures is their stability, which allows them to last many years even though a yearly recall is necessary.
Several materials and machines are involved to complete this cast partial denture system. These machines and materials contribute to the dentrues’ unique properties such as retention, flexibility, comfort, and aesthetic appearance.
