Removable partial dentures generally consist of replacement teeth that are attached to gum-coloured plastic bases. Depending on your case, your denturist will design a partial denture, custom to your mouth. A partial denture can have metal framework and clasps that connect to your teeth, or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is created to attach to your natural teeth with devices called, “Precision Attachments”. Precision attachments are generally more aesthetically pleasing than clasps.
Your natural teeth may need Crowns, which are sometimes needed to improve the fit of removable partial denture, and they are typically required with attachments. Partial dentures with Precision Attachments usually cost more than those with clasps. Book a consultation with our office to find out which type is right for you.
