The flexible partial denture provides excellent aesthetics and comfort for patients who prefer to wear a removable denture rather than a fixed restoration such as a dental bridge or dental implants. By using a flexible base, the restoration can adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth.
Flexible partial dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory after an impression of your mouth has been taken. Most flexible partial dentures involve very simple preparation because your natural teeth don’t need to be altered. Flexible partials are nearly invisible because there are no metal clasps covering your natural teeth and because most flexible materials blend with the tissue in your mouth.
