In the category of removable dentures you usually have two options: a removable partial denture and full or complete denture. A complete denture is for patients who don’t have teeth on either the top jaw or the bottom jaw, whereas a removable partial denture is for patients who still have some of their own teeth remaining, and want to replace those missing teeth with a removable option.
An RPD can be made out of two different materials – cast metal with acrylic or a flexible material (Valplast). Fortunately, we can design both types to be highly esthetic.
We will discuss your specific treatment needs with you, but we often recommend the cast metal partial with acrylic because it is the stronger of the two types of removable dentures, and it can be tightened and repaired easily if needed. For patients who are only missing a few teeth, however, the flexible-type may be a better approach.Get in Touch
