Partial Dentures

What is a Partial Denture

A partial denture is a restorative prosthetic for patients with multiple but not total tooth loss, as they fit between the natural teeth and are used to replace one or more missing in a row rather than an entire upper or lower set.

How Many Types of Partial Dentures are There

There are several different variations of partial dentures:

Benefits of Chrome Cobalt Partial Dentures vs Acrylic Partial Dentures

Among the partial denture variations there some important differences when looking at acrylic dentures vs their cobalt chrome counterparts. Acrylic dentures are are made from a strong, body safe resin that are customised in colour to blend as seamlessly with the natural gums and teeth as possible. Their acrylic composition make them one of the bulkier restorative prosthetics, however they are considered amongst the most affordable solution for patients. Metal (cobalt chrome) partial dentures are constructed by fitting the customised teeth on a cast metal frame that attaches the to the surrounding natural teeth with small metallic clasps. These dentures are minimally invasive, very strong and considerably longer lasting than their acrylic comparators. Aesthetically they can be smaller and more natural looking, however the metallic framework can be visible.
