Flexible partial dentures consist of flexible materials that have more give and are less likely to break or crack when dropped. While softer than other types of dentures, flexible partial dentures are still highly durable. They replace some of your missing permanent teeth. The Apex Denture Studio team is highly skilled in creating personalized partial dentures to match your needs.
The advantages you can expect when choosing flexible partial dentures at Apex Denture Studio include:
Because they consist of softer materials, flexible dentures are easier on your gums. You can wear the dentures in your mouth during the day and take them out before you sleep. There’s no metal or adhesive required. Flexible partial dentures can dramatically improve your smile and quality of life.
However, it’s important to take good care of the dentures to prevent damage. Even so, they may need to be replaced due to wear-and-tear over time.
Dr. Alsbury discusses your oral health history and cosmetic dental goals to determine if you qualify for flexible partial dentures. He examines your gums and teeth and evaluates the results of your most current dental X-rays.
You might first need a tooth extraction if you have decayed or severely damaged teeth. If you’re a candidate for implant-supported dentures, your specialist inserts metal tooth roots into your jawbone to anchor fixed or removable dentures.
Before you receive flexible partial dentures, your provider takes a mold of your teeth or digitally scans them to create hand-made, customized partial dentures that match your needs. For an added cost, you can wear interim dentures until your permanent dentures are ready. That way you don’t have to live with missing teeth.
When your permanent dentures are ready, Dr. Alsbury ensures the dentures fit properly and explains how to take good care of them. It’s important to keep flexible partial dentures clean, keep them in a safe place when you’re not wearing removable dentures, and avoid chewing on hard objects.
