These dentures are fabricated 100% from acrylic. They contain no metal substructure for support. Acrylic partial dentures are great for a temporary solution. Often, they are used as the means of replacing teeth when multiple teeth have to be removed.
If you know that one or more of your teeth need to be removed, an all-acrylic partial denture can be fabricated before the oral surgery appointment. At the appointment with dentist will insert the previously manufactured all-acrylic partial denture.
These are some of the benefits of this type of partial denture:
These are some of the reasons that you might consider this as your treatment plan option.
Some patients struggle with periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a mouth disease of the bone and gums surrounding the teeth. This disease can be acute and the patient’s remaining dentition can be severely mobile.
If a traditional partial is used, the remaining dentition would be clasped and rested on by the metal substructure. In this case, an all-acrylic partial denture helps reduce the stresses on the remaining compromised teeth.
We find that some of our patients are able to use this treatment as an alternative to the metal clasps. They prefer it and find the advantages of this procedure.
