Implant-Assisted Removable Partial Dentures

FEATURES & BENEFITS OF TRADITIONAL REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES

Partial dentures are one of the treatment modalities that are underused in today’s dentistry. This is unfortunate as there are many patients for whom a partial denture may be a good choice of treatment. When you factor in the potential to integrate implants, by creating an implant-assisted removable partial denture, a partial could become an ideal prosthetic option for many patients.

Burbank Dental Lab has been one of the nation's leading Removable Partial Denture (RPD) labs for decades, and now even more so. As part of Burbank Dental Lab's continuing development of our implant department, there has been a collaboration between the implant and removable prosthetic work teams. The ability to design and fabricate both implant restorations and removable prosthetics as an integrated team provide a vast collection of potential treatment options for you and your patients.

What You Will Learn In This Article

Traditional Removable Partial Dentures

Features & Benefits
The most common category of removable partial dentures is the cast Co/Cr framework that employs clasping systems to retain the partial denture in the patient’s mouth. The goal of this type of partial denture is to create a prosthetic that is primarily tooth-borne and retained, thus minimizing the negative impact on the tissue. A properly designed metal framework will also minimize stress and trauma to the teeth that it uses for retention, and will spread the biting forces more evenly to the whole arch.

It should also be understood, that not all Co/Cr alloys are created equal. One of the best choices in Cobalt Chromium alloys is Vitallium  2000 Plus. Vitallium has been the first name of partial dentures for over 40 years and continues to deliver and create an ideal blend of material properties for removable partial dentures.
