partial denture

 



A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces the missing teeth in the mouth. You may need a partial denture for aesthetic reasons, or for eating, talking or to protect remaining teeth from drifting or over-erupting. Partial dentures are not fixed – they can be inserted and removed whenever you like. This works by using your remaining teeth for retention, so it retains and stabilises the denture (holds it in place) so that it doesn’t move or fall. The Bryan Dental in Bryan and College Station area is conveniently located near to the Briarcrest Walmart is the best option available and best Denture  Expert  dentist near you.

Acrylic partial dentures

Acrylic dentures are usually the most cost effective and can be made within a short period of time. Other advantages are that they can be relined, added to (in case you lose any more natural teeth) and can be used as a temporary denture before dental implants, or whilst waiting for chrome dentures.

Some of the disadvantages are that the acrylic denture base is slightly weaker due to its irregular shape and tend to break frequently, especially those made for the lower arch. In order to counteract this, the acrylic is usually built quite thickly, which can take a little extra time to get used to.

Chrome partial denture

Chrome dentures, however, are a more long term material for a partial denture, as the frame and required components are all cast in one piece. This is just one of the many advantages chrome dentures have over acrylic.

The components of a chrome partial denture rest on soft tissue and natural teeth, making the denture both tooth and tissue borne, thus distributing the load evenly during mastication, helping to protect the underlying bone.

Due to the strength of the chrome it can be made in a smaller, more efficient design, making it more comfortable to wear and live with, whilst giving you the security of knowing it has less chance of breakage.
