Partial dentures are dental prosthetics designed to replace one or more missing teeth when some natural teeth remain in the patient’s mouth. They come in two primary types: metal partial dentures and acrylic partial dentures. Metal partial dentures, often made from a combination of metal and a pink acrylic base, are highly durable and provide stability due to their clasps or attachments that grip existing teeth. They are less bulky and more discreet. On the other hand, acrylic partial dentures are typically less expensive but are generally bulkier and may have visible metal clasps. The choice between these options depends on factors like aesthetics, comfort, and budget, and is determined through consultation with a dentist.
