These dentures, like Snap-On Smile, are used when one or more of the natural teeth are still healthy. Partial dentures fit around the remaining healthy teeth and they may be removable or fixed.
Partial dentures that can be removed provide you with the added benefit of eating and cleaning at any time. You can also choose fixed partial dentures, which are the same in construction as a removable partial denture, but they are cemented in place to the adjacent teeth for support.
Full dentures are generally made of either resin or flexible plastic material. Partial dentures can be fabricated from a metal-based material, resin-based material, flexible plastic, or even a combination, known as a hybrid appliance.
Traditional dentures tend to be a more economical way to replace missing teeth, but they do need to be replaced approximately every five-seven years. If you have dental implants, you may also consider implant supported dentures like One Step Hybrid or other dental implant alternatives like bridges and partials.
