Acrylic partial dentures consist of replacement teeth that are set in pink or gum colored acrylic resin. The flexible partial is made from a special material that gives you added comfort and fit. To aid the retention of the denture one or more wire clasps are placed around the natural teeth in the mouth. If some of the remaining natural teeth need to be extracted at a later date additional false teeth can be added to an acrylic partial denture. This type of partial denture is much quicker to make than its metal counterpart. As with all dentures, acrylics also offer several other benefits to denture wearers. The presence of teeth can really help increase people's self-esteem and confidence. The dentures can also help provide support for the lips and cheeks that may look “clapped in” in appearance in patients with teeth missing. Acrylic Dentures need to be cleaned every single day, just like real teeth need to be cleaned if you want to avoid the plaque and bacteria on the tooth surface. These types of dentures are removable, meaning they are not fixed and can be inserted and removed at your convenience. This works by using the remaining teeth for retention, thus retaining and stabilizing the denture so that it doesn't move or fall. Before a partial denture is made, usually it is standard practice by the dentist to have your remaining teeth checked, to ensure that it will be in a stable condition to withstand the loads a partial denture omits. Once all restorations have been completed, you are ready for impressions. Acrylic partial denture treatments are still a very popular choice for many people. The dentures will last depending on the use and care of the denture.
