Partial Dentures, an Alternative to a Dental Bridge

What are partial dentures?

An alternative to a dental bridge, partial dentures replace some of your teeth to maintain spacing and preserve your smile. As with complete dentures, Hunter’s Denture Studio makes partial dentures from top-of-the-line materials, and an elite denturist crafts them.

Acrylic partial dentures

Acrylic partial dentures are set in an acrylic base, just like complete dentures. This type of partial denture has small wires that attach to your natural teeth to use them for support.

Flexible partial dentures

Flexible partial dentures are made from a bendable plastic that conforms to the contours of your mouth for optimal comfort. Flexible partial dentures are free of all metal and wires.

Metal partial dentures

Metal partial dentures are the strongest of the three partials. They have a metal frame, rather than an acrylic or flexible plastic frame. The metal frame attaches to the back of your existing natural teeth to use them for support.

What if my partial dentures feel loose?

If your partial dentures feel loose, it’s an indicator that you need a denture adjustment or repair. Sometimes, you can’t see tiny cracks or changes in the denture base, but they can have a big impact on the way your dentures fit. Loose dentures could also be a sign that it’s time for a partial denture reline.
