The best denture is one that fits your mouth comfortably and maintains your ability to eat, talk and smile with confidence after tooth extraction. A partial denture is worn when some teeth remain, whereas complete dentures are necessary if you have no remaining teeth.
The frames of partial dentures are made from metal or plastic, and the teeth are made from plastic or porcelain. Although more expensive, metal is preferred over plastic because it lasts longer, is more tolerable and more hygienic. Complete dentures made from high impact acrylics are the strongest and should last a minimum of 5 years.
