Acrylic full or complete dentures are the most affordable denture solution out of all the denture types. If you’re looking for a quick solution or turnaround, acrylic dentures are an ideal choice. They are also used temporarily for patients that could be undergoing dental implant treatment.
As they’re primarily made out of plastic they are unfortunately weaker than other denture types and may break. With proper maintenance and regular dental appointments can last for several years.
Built from thermoplastic nylon material, flexible dentures have a discreet transparent appearance. As a result, flexible dentures are aesthetically more appealing as their material colour blends in with the gum lining. They are generally suited for those with several one or several missing teeth. Partial dentures also provide more comfort while eating and talking since they cover less of the palette lining.
Metal dentures consist of cast chrome material that is specifically molded and shaped per patient. Chrome dentures are the most durable and long lasting of all denture current denture types. They also offer superior comfort due to their thin lining in comparison to standard acrylic dentures. As a result of their superior strength and thinness, they cover less lining of the palette. This allows for more taste sensations while eating and better verbal communication due to them being less obtrusive.
