Removable partial dentures are replacements for missing teeth. Dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-like plastic base. A metal framework that is inserted to hold the dentures in place. At RA Dental Studio, we offer services to help our patients achieve their most beautiful smile.
Advantages of RPD or removable partial dentures
Removal dental dentures are less invasive than other restoration treatments. The dentures are solutions to fill in or restore teeth and support cheeks and lips for a younger look. A denture is also the best option for those who don’t want to spend much for teeth restoration. To patients with severe conditions that do not allow anesthesia or surgery, dentures are recommended.
Disadvantages of RPD
If your partial dentures wouldn’t fit, it will most likely slide and can fall out from your mouth. Also, when eating it can cause uneasiness and discomfort. Dentures may affect chewing and biting activity resulting in the improper diet because you cannot enjoy your meal, especially those foods that are hard to chew on.
You just have to make sure that your RPD fits your teeth’s surface. Ask your dentist for more informative advice on your teeth replacement.
Types of removable partial dentures
This treatment is usually attached to the remaining teeth by clasping and holding extension. So here are the types of RPD for you to be informed.
- Flipper. Flipper is made of acrylic plastic resin which is typically used as a temporary denture. It is designed to clasp around the surface of the existing natural teeth to help retain the denture.
- Flexible partial dentures. This is made of nylon and known as flexible polyimide that can change its shape on high heat. Also, this type of RPD is lighter than the flipper because it consists of thermoplastic.
- Partial dentures with precision attachment. This type is precision-made, and it is constructed of a lightweight metal. The partial denture is very thin and helpful in retaining the dentures on the teeth.
