For patients who have missing teeth, partial dentures have long been a popular restoration option.  A removable approach to replacing lost teeth, partial dentures have typically been made with metal clasps attached to a gum-colored base.  However, metal clasps aren’t always an ideal option for certain patients, prompting the creation of metal-free, flexible partial dentures.

Flexible partials are an alternative to both metal-based dentures and fixed restoration options, such as fixed dental bridges.  These cutting-edge prostheses are removable, aesthetically pleasing, and are custom-made to fit each patient’s mouth.  But, the list of benefits doesn’t end there!  Read on to learn a few important advantages of choosing a flexible partial denture.
