Dentures are a form of removable dental alternative designed for harm or lacking tooth and the encircling tissues. The machine includes an inner framework that suits over the patient’s natural tooth and jawbone. The framework has 4 parts: modular oral circuit, implant crown base, implant crown and abutment, and the detachable partial denture. Dentures come alongside a ton of advantages. In fact, dentures can beautify your smile or even your whole look. There are various types of dentures which includes:-


  • Complete or full dentures
  • Partial fixed dentures
  • Partial removable dentures

Partial dentures are the removable dentures that allow the replacement of multiple teeth in both upper or lower jaw. Partial denture replacements are usually attached to gum color and it perfectly fits in the space available. They consist of replacement teeth that are connected to a gum-colored plastic base, also connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place without difficulties. They are preferred when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. A fixed bridge simply replaces teeth by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them. And dental cement is used to place the bridge. Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, but it also prevents other teeth from changing their natural position. There are two types of partial dentures with their sub types and they are:-


    • Removable partial dentures
  • Cast metal framework Removable partial dentures
  • Acrylic clasp Removable partial dentures
  • Flexible partial dentures
    • Fixed partial dentures
  • Fixed bridge
  • Implant supported fixed bridge



Flexible partial dentures are a type of removable partial dentures which is designed to replace a single tooth or a few teeth rather than a full set of teeth. Flexi partials are mostly used to replace mostly a single tooth or fewer set of teeth. These are most comfortable as it hugs the contours of the gum and it does not cause bruises to the gum and can last longer than other types of dentures. They have a comfortable more aesthetically pleasing flexible metal clasp instead of a metal clasp normally used. They are most commonly used as a temporary tooth loss solution. They are slightly more difficult to repair compared to the traditional dentures so their usable life is shorter. They are used as a permanent tooth replacement and are the best options for the ones who may not like bridgework or implants. Flexible partial dentures  are the one for you if you’re allergic to acrylic. It’s really comfortable and less noticeable due to the gum-colored clasps. However, these benefits come at a cost, as it is more expensive when compared to other partial dentures. This type of denture is also thought of as a temporary option.
