These fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, resting partly on the gums and partly on the remaining teeth. Removable partial dentures may be attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.

Acrylic partial dentures
Metal frame partial dentures

Complete or partial denture bases are made of hard acrylic-plastic-resin. The bone and soft tissues underneath a denture respond to the pressure of day-to-day use.

These hard denture materials retain their relative shape, but over time the underlying tissues does not. These dentures rest on the soft tissue which over time will eventually change (both the soft external tissue and bone underneath) and then the prosthesis will require either a replacement or a reline of the hard material in the space created by that change.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are designed to replace the missing dentition sections, to help preserve natural dental placement and prevent the existing healthy natural teeth from migrating to a different position, as opposed to full dental appliances.


Metal Partial Dentures

Cast Metal RPD. These appliances are extremely accurate fitting frames that rest and retentively brace the natural detention, of which acquires the necessary retention by simply wedging itself between the spaces of the remaining dentition and locks around the curvature of the tooth.

This process is assessed and determined in a calculated way.


Acrylic Partial Dentures

Acrylic (plastic) RPD. This consists of an acrylic surrounding body and flexible wire clasps.
This appliance is more of a temporary product and is only made available for instances such as the waiting period for an implant or an integrating process for a metal prosthesis.
An acrylic RPD can either replace a single front or a multiply removed dentition.
