Partial dentures used to be created out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic However, now there is an alternative material which has been made of light flexible material used by the space industry. This option has all the benefits of the traditional partials but with more comfort and cosmetic appearance. A patient’s specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the partial denture and every effort is made to construct a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues.
Dr. Mehrinfar will design your partial denture so that the chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface are of the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Changes to your remaining teeth may be recommended to help equalize these forces.
All partials must be thin and hygienic. Acrylic partials are typically used as a transitional or temporary partial. Flexible partials are the most practical when there are more teeth to support the bite and cosmetic isa concern. Metal and acrylic combination partials can provide more stability when too many missing teeth are the main concern. Dr. Mehrinfar will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation. Call today Ora-Dent Dental Group Phone Number 713-706-3368.
