What Are Flexible Partial Dentures?

Flexible partial dentures are a temporary tooth loss solution designed to replace a single tooth or a few teeth rather than a complete set of teeth. While awaiting a more permanent fix, such as implant dentures, flexible partial dentures connect to existing teeth with a comfortable, aesthetically-pleasing, flexible metal clasp. The usable life of these dentures is much shorter than traditional dentures.

Who Needs Flexible Partial Dentures & Why?

Ideal candidates for flexible partial dentures include those missing at least two teeth from a specific area of the mouth. Suppose you want a comfortable alternative to traditional dentures or a short-term solution while you wait for implant dentures. In that case, flexible partial dentures might be for you. Additionally, if your teeth are tilted, flexible partial dentures can provide you with more flexibility due to their easy insertion capabilities and the flexibility of the piece itself. However, flexible partial dentures are likely not the right solution for you if you have loose teeth, as teeth cannot be added to this denture type. If you’re unsure as to whether or not a flexible partial denture is suitable for you, get in touch with the professional team at Smile Zone Dental today for a consultation.

How Do Flexible Partial Dentures Differ From Full Dentures?

Flexible partial dentures replace a single tooth or a couple of teeth rather than a complete set of teeth. On the other hand, full dentures replace a full set of teeth. Additionally, the metal clasp that attaches to existing teeth is much more comfortable and aesthetically-please on flexible partial dentures.

The Benefits Of Flexible Partial Dentures

There are numerous benefits of flexible partial dentures. Not only is this type of denture a cost-effective teeth replacement solution, but they are also conservative and comfortable. Flexible partial dentures offer patients a gentle tooth replacement treatment that is highly-aesthetic, natural-looking, and flexible. These dentures can also cover receded gums to improve the appearance of the gumline. The benefits of flexible partial dentures include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

  • More cost-effective than traditional dentures
  • More stain-resistant than traditional dentures
  • Less likely to break than traditional dentures
  • More comfortable than traditional dentures
  • Easier to adjust than traditional dentures
  • More lightweight than traditional dentures
  • Less likely to cause an allergic reaction than traditional dentures
  • They help preserve the health of the remaining teeth
  • They prevent remaining teeth from shifting
