Acrylic partials also known as a "flipper" are made for patients that need a temporary prosthetic device and are expecting some of the natural teeth to be extracted within a year. We make these dentures so that we are able to easily modify the dentures as our patient is transitioning from natural teeth to having no teeth. We make these dentures a little thicker than our framework partial dentures because they are not as strong and durable and do not have the same stability as a cast metal partial.
These dentures are great for partial immediate denture patients, patients who are expecting to loose more teeth within five years, and patients who will be transitioning to a complete or cast metal partial denture within a couple of years.
This type of partial denture is made with a metal framework in place to keep the prosthetic light, strong and long-lasting. This type of denture is made for patients who have stable and healthy natural teeth with little to no concern of losing any more natural teeth within the next five years. These partials can be made of either titanium or chromium cobalt.
A cast thermoplastic denture that is thin, lightweight, and flexible with invisible clasps that surround the natural teeth. Flexible partials are a quality premium product that offers the benefits of superior esthetics, comfort, function, and bio-compatibility.
