Lower Partial Dentures
Lower dentures can be very difficult to get used to, so if you have a few teeth to clip a denture to, the denture will be more stable. Metal partial dentures use a metal frame that clips directly to the natural teeth. If the remaining teeth are healthy, the frame will passively splint the teeth together, creating an overall stronger arch of teeth, and a better surface to eat with.
Upper Partial Dentures
These two partial dentures are for the same mouth. Most of the differences are obvious—the plastic one is bulkier, covering much more of the mouth and not clipping in as tightly, but this may be more appropriate if the remaining teeth are not strong enough. The plastic denture also bears all the load from eating onto the gums, sometimes causing further tissue deterioration. If the remaining natural teeth are healthy, a metal denture—either Cobalt, Chrome, or Titanium—will most likely be the best option, bracing the teeth together to create a strong, ridged, and secure situation. This will protect both teeth and gum tissues long into the future.
