Removable Partial Dentures

Removable Partial Dentures

A removable denture that replaces only some teeth.

How is an RPD different from a Complete Denture?

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.

How does an RPD work?

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 wtih 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 tighented and repaired easily if needed. For patients who are only missing a few teeth, however, the flexible-type may be a better approach.

I went in and was immediately put at ease. They were willing to stay late to make sure my exam was through and a tentative plan was put into place. When I returned the following day to see the hygienist, a definitive plan was put into place and the doctor and staff made sure I understood each step and what was needed.

I don't really like to go to the Dentist but the staff and the Dr are awesome!! Very kind, happy and professional!! The Dr is very gentle and communicative; as he tells you what he is going to do in detail and is a warm, caring person.

Folks, if you're looking for a new dental practice...look NO further! My 1st phone call to schedule a consultation was met with a kind and caring person who seemed genuinely concerned with the problems and pain I was experiencing. Though her schedule was full, she managed to fit me in to see the dentist.
