Dentures, also known as False Teeth, are a REMOVABLE prosthesis to replace a missing tooth or numerous teeth.
Types of Dentures at the dental clinic in Phuket Thailand
Temporary Plate : It is considered to be the first or immediate prosthesis. It is used right after tooth extraction especially in the esthetic zone. It is often made of acrylic.
Partial Denture : It is used only if there are healthy teeth available. This type of denture is often clipped around the remaining healthy teeth. It has a metal framework to make it much stronger for better function. The metal framework is made of Vitalium.
Full Denture : If you have no remaining teeth, you need Full Dentures, upper and lower. These are usually made from acrylic. There is also a case that the metal framework uses to strengthen the denture.

What is a Flexible Denture?
Flexible Denture is a partial denture. The flexible denture is made of a thin thermoplastic such as nylon, compared to the thicker, more rigid acrylic used in full denture. You may find it more comfortable fit than other materials, especially if you are new to wearing dentures.
Alternatives To Denture
The most common and effective alternative to dentures is Dental Implants.
Dental Bridges are also another alternative.
What is the Overdenture?
Overdenture is a full denture but it is held in place by Dental Implants or remaining teeth, making the denture much more stable and secure.
