In the category of removable dentures you usually have two options: a removable partial denture and full or complete denture. A complete denture is for patients who don’t have teeth on either the top jaw or the bottom jaw, whereas a removable partial denture is for patients who still have some of their own teeth remaining, and want to replace those missing teeth with a removable option.
An RPD can be made out of two different materials – cast metal with acrylic or a flexible material (Valplast). Fortunately, we can design both types to be highly esthetic.
We will discuss your specific treatment needs with you, but we often recommend the cast metal partial with acrylic because it is the stronger of the two types of removable dentures, and it can be tightened and repaired easily if needed. For patients who are only missing a few teeth, however, the flexible-type may be a better approach.Get in Touch
My wife and I had our first cleanings with Dallas Dental today and were extremely pleased with the consideration of Dr. McMiller, staff and Niki, who did our cleanings. No discomfort whatsoever and we both have sensitive spots in our mouths. Best cleanings ever. Very caring office.
I've never liked going to the dentist, the idea of needles in my mouth frightened me. My visit today was absolutely amazing, my hygienist (Nikki) made me feel at ease. When the Doctor came in to numb me, I didn't really feel a thing. I will continue to go there and I'm making my daughter an appointment as well.
Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on a same day appointment and called to check up a few hours later. I highly recommend using this dentist office. It will not be a dreaded experience.
I do not do well with people dealing with my mouth. I have never met a group so sensitive to my comfort while still doing an amazing job. No, most of the things that must be done at a dental office are not going to be fun, but this group makes it so much easier. I will recommend them to anyone! Thank you so much.
