When do Non-flexible partial dentures work better?
Cast Metal Partial Denture: The cast metal partial denture is stronger, less bulky and offers a great fit. This partial has a metal framework to which is attach high-quality denture teeth. It is usually not quite as cosmetic as the Flexible Partial and takes a little longer at our lab since the special metal framework adds an extra step in processing.
Acrylic Partial Denture: Acrylic partial dentures are more affordable, but they tend to feel more bulky. This partial has an acrylic base into which the denture teeth are set and is attached to your natural teeth with small wire clasps. Many of our guests enjoy this metal-free option.
To help you make the very best decision for your tooth replacement needs, it’s important to learn about all the options. Dental Implants are becoming the preferred treatment for missing teeth because they never have to come out of your mouth to be cleaned, and they can last for the rest of your life. Implants can be done for a single tooth or as a bridge for multiple missing teeth.
Single-tooth Restorations: When our dentists carefully place your dental implant where your natural tooth root would have been, they are creating a sturdy foundation that can then support a beautiful dental crown to fill in the gap in your smile.
Dental Implant Bridge: If you have a larger space of consecutive missing teeth, we may recommend an Implant Bridge supported by two or more implants to span whole missing section with one beautiful restoration. Implant Bridges tend to be more affordable than multiple single tooth implant restorations and sometimes allow us to restore teeth in certain areas that may be impossible otherwise.
While it’s true that Dental Implants constitute a bit more of an investment up front, when you factor in their extreme longevity, you begin to see just how much it can pay of. Also, we offer a wide variety of payment options to make it very possible for you to obtain the highest level of care.
