Types of Partial Dentures to Be Aware Of

Posted on 12/15/2019 by nh_dR9W

Partial dentures are sometimes something that is needed when a few teeth are required in the mouth instead of all the teeth. Patients come to our office for a set of partial dentures from time to time, because they want to fill in the gaps in the teeth and smile with more confidence and ease.

This type of denture does come with different option types depending on the situation of the patient. Here are some of the types you can expect to come across.

Light Alloy Dentures

These lighter dentures are placed on metal and can be clipped into the mouth. These teeth are then filled into the gaps of the teeth missing.

Plastic Dentures

Plastic is a durable option for those that want something that is not metal. It sits in the mouth in the same way, but slips into the area with ease and is easy to clean off.

Flexible Dentures

These are often given when a person wants dentures that fit well inside the mouth, are comfortable, and flex along with the mouth. Sometimes these are needed when the mouth is smaller than normal, or perhaps have a different shape.

Hypoallergenic Dentures

These clips inside the mouth, move with it, and do not irritate the mouth as much as some of the other options might.

The type of partial dentures that fit to the patient depends on the patient and their unique situation. The number of teeth that have to be replaced, their personal preference, budget, and more. With the right exam, our dentists can provide the information needed to figure out which might be the best ones for you to go with.
