Denture is a removable plate or frame holding one or more artificial teeth.
Complete or Full Denture
A complete denture is one which replaces all of the patient’s natural teeth.
Partial dentures are used when just one or more of your teeth need replacing.
Fixed Partial Denture (FPD)
Permanently attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw with a dental crown or under the gum tissue
Removable Partial Denture (RPD)
A removable dental bridge fills the gap between two healthy teeth and consists of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base.
Denture Type based on Material
Acrylic Denture – Acrylic dentures are more affordable. This partial has an acrylic base into which the denture teeth are set and is attached to your natural teeth with small metal clasps.
Flexible Denture – The flexible partial is made from a special material that gives you added comfort and fit.
Cast Metal Denture – Cast metal partial denture is stronger, less bulky and offers a great fit. This partial has a metal framework.
