A denture is an artificial set of removable teeth made from acrylic resin that replace missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Partial dentures can be attached to the natural teeth using clasps or attached using crowns with hidden clasps. Dentures are necessary to prevent the remaining teeth from shifting their position in the jaw, to keep facial muscles and lips from sagging, and to allow the patient to speak and eat normally. There are three types of partial dentures;
Flexible– Nylon resin base and clasps. Flexible
Acrylic – Acrylic resin base with metal clasps. Rigid
Chrome-Cobalt -Metal and resin base with metal clasps. Rigid
Your dentist will recommend a suitable option for you and the number of visits will depend on the type of denture.
