Can I have a removable partial denture where there is no metal showing?
For patients who are missing a number of front/side teeth, we can create a removable partial denture, designed for either the upper or lower jaw, made of an unbreakable acrylic. They are attached to existing teeth by means of precision acrylic clasps. These clasps are the same color as your gums and blend in, so others are not aware that you are wearing a removable partial denture. Nearly every patient that we have made one for, who previously had a metal removable partial denture, has said that besides looking better, these are much more comfortable to wear. Futhermore, by not having metal, no grooves or indentations have to be placed on your remaining teeth for retention, and there are no excessive forces to possibly injure teeth.
