Partial Denture Types and Materials
Partial dentures are created out of a metal and acrylic composition or made entirely out of acrylic. A patient’s specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the denture and every effort is made to construct a partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues.
Miriam Levitan Dani, DDS or Amir Danesh, DDS will design your partial denture so that chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface of the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Your dentist in Chicago may make changes to your remaining teeth to help equalize these forces.
Metal parts are generally preferred as they are structurally superior. They are thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are typically used as a transitional or temporary denture. Your holistic dentist in Chicago will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation.
