Dentures & Partials

"Our goal at Southard Dental is to help our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles
with preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry in a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere"

Flexible Partial Dentures

"Flexible (Valplast brand) partials are bendable and difficult to break. They cannot be used
immediately. Acrylic partial is used if the patient desires partials immediately after tooth removal for
a period of several months."
 
 

Metal Framework Partial Dentures

"Metal frameworks can make acrylic partials stronger while adding precision fittings into recesses of
the teeth and crowns. This type of partial has been around for a long time and is built for function."

Acrylic Partial Dentures

"Acrylic partials are inexpensive partials easy to use for immediate situations after tooth removal. They are easy to reline and adjust during healing. They can be used temporarily or long term depending upon the patient's needs."

Flipper Partial

"Flipper Partials are the smallest in their class. They usually do not contain more than 1-3 small teeth. They get their name from being easy to "flip" in and out. I tell patients that you can choose to take them out to eat or leave them in. Most of the time they have to be glued in with dental adhesive. They can be used for immediate situations or long term."
