Removable Partial Dentures (RPD)

Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework.

Removable partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch. Many can’t identify that you wear any such thing. Hence, you need not feel shame of wearing removable partial dentures. It’s a great gift that technology has brought us more effective treatments. These modern removable partial dentures are modelled accordingly to hide from others that you wear something of such stuff.

The Treatment Removable Partial Dentures (flippers)

Affectionately known in dentistry as a "flipper", this is the least expensive of all the removable partial dentures.  The one pictured on the right replaces 4 missing teeth, leaving spaces for 7 natural teeth.  Two  of the natural teeth are clasped with wrought wire clasps which are cured into the structure of the denture base. 

How do you wear a removable partial denture?

Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than metal clasps and they are nearly invisible.
