Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture is a restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth for functional or esthetic reasons. A removable partial denture is most frequently used to restore natural smile; an even bite for better chewing or facilitating normal speech sounds; to prevent remaining natural teeth tipping shifting or over erupting which can result in an unattractive smile, an uneven bite and damage or pain in the jaw joints or muscles; to prevent excessive wear on the remaining teeth. The reason why this type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial denture is because it is removed and reinserted by the wearer. Rather than lying entirely on the edentulous ridge like complete dentures, removable partial dentures possess clasps of metal that are designed to fit around some natural teeth. Despite of the use of clasps, all removable partial dentures move slightly during function. Depending on the teeth remaining in oral cavity, partial dentures may be tooth supported, tissue/tooth supported, and implant or attachment/tissue supported. Partial dentures could be fabricated using acrylics and a metal/acrylic combination. Acrylic partials are used as a transitional or temporary replacement of missing teeth. The metal/acrylic partial—commonly referred as a cast partial is designed to service as a permanent replacement. The metal components are cast in cobalt alloy or titanium. Titanium is not only stronger than other non-precious alloys, but it is also two times lighter, making it more comfortable to function with.
