Acrylic Partial Denture Cost


Acrylic resin dentures

Acrylic dentures are what is commonly referred to simply as dentures or dental plates. They may contain 1, 2, 3 teeth, up to a maximum of 14 artificial teeth.

The material used in its manufacture is generally acrylic resin, but it can also be in nylon or silicone. Acrylic ones are not very sturdy and easily break. They are dental prostheses that the bearer may remove from their mouth and replace again. In the case of damage they can be repaired, the more difficult operations are those using nylon and silicone, which although more robust, are more prone to discolouration and odours.

All acrylic resin dentures can be relined, for about US$ 420.00 or rebased when dysfunctional, due to natural changes in the mouth.

Flexible dentures

Nylon or silicone dentures are flexible, making them more comfortable to insert and remove but less robust when it comes to chewing. However acrylic prostheses although rigid, may have silicone filling, which increases comfort. False teeth in dentures are usually made of acrylic. Alternatively, (more expensive) they may be in porcelain. The advantage of porcelain teeth is that they last longer and are prettier.
