We offer several types of partial dentures – cast metal, flexible and acrylic. The cast metal and flexible partials are our best partials. Please check with the practice nearest you to learn which partials they provide.
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 our on-site laboratory will attach higher-quality denture teeth. Since our special metal framework is made by an outside laboratory, availability of this partial is about two to three weeks.
The flexible partial is made from a special material that gives you added comfort and fit. It is only available in participating practices.
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 metal clasps. The acrylic partial may be available with more durable, natural-looking teeth, right up to the Ultra partial. The practice staff can inform you of availability in each office.
The acrylic partial denture is often available the same day.
