Cast Metal Partial Denture
Cast metal partials have long proven to be most reliable type of partial denture. The main body of the denture is made up of a metal frame and the teeth are embedded within the pink denture acrylic that is attached to the frame.
Cast partial dentures consist of “occlusal rests” that sit on the top of some of the remaining natural teeth. These rests prevent the denture from moving up and down when chewing. This is important because the denture teeth sit on top of gum tissue and constantly pushes into the gum when chewing, if a rest isn’t present to prevent this movement it may increase gum loss. Cast metal partial dentures are also lighter and less bulky in the mouth due of the strength of the metal frame, making them more comfortable and stable than other denture options.
