Removable Partial Dentures

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable Partial Dentures are designed to replace one or more missing teeth and can be tooth-supported, tooth/tissue supported and/or implant/tissue supported.  If you require a Removable Partial Denture your Denturist will design and build your Removable Partials to meet your specific needs.


A Removable Partial Denture can be made of different materials, including acrylics, a metal/acrylic combination or flexible thermoplastics.  Acrylic partials are usually used as a temporary replacement of missing teeth.  Metal partials are considered stronger structurally, thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial.  With new materials, designs and fabrication techniques, partials are becoming more comfortable than ever.  Many partials are now designed without visible clasps making them undetectable.  All partials are designed to be removable and should be removed nightly to enhance oral health.


Removable Partial Dentures can help preserve the natural placement of your remaining teeth by providing them with additional support for a more powerful and stable bite for easier chewing.  They can also enhance your natural appearance and ability to speak clearly. Ask your Denturist if Removable Partial Dentures would be a good solution for you!  He/she will be happy to advise you on all  the benefits Removable Partials can provide and will determine the appropriate treatment plan for you: Find A Denturist
