Partial Dentures, types of partial dentures Medellin
Partial dentures can be created in many different variations, including designs, materials, accessory parts, sizes, combinations of features and materials.
The first consideration is to know that a partial denture is a structure aimed to replace missing teeth on the maxillary or mandibular arch, when there are missing a number of teeth. There are many different situations, teeth conditions, teeth position, distance of the gap left, etc.
When we have at least 2 teeth on either side of the arch it is possible to replace the missing teeth with a removable partial denture. The main differences between most removable dentures are in the basic structure that supports the teeth to be replaced. Then we have the materials used, which are basically metal or plastic materials, each type with different possible options.
Partial dentures may also be rigid or flexible. Flexible partial dentures have their use but it is important to select the cases to use them, since not every case is suitable to be solved with a flexible partial denture.
