A partial denture is a removable appliance meant to fill the space of multiple missing teeth in the upper or lower dental arch. They usually have replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base connected by metal framework. For some situations where esthetics are of prime concern we can make a flexible “Valplast” partial that has no metal clasps or metal framework. Although removable partials are generally less expensive, fixed bridges or dental implants when indicated, may feel more stable and comfortable. One of our skilled Dentists in Durham will gladly help determine which approach is the right choice for you.
