They are dental prostheses for patients who have lost one or more dental pieces made mostly of acrylic or flexible material. The patient has in his mouth remnant teeth from which the partial takes its retention.
According to the clinical case to follow there are two types: conventional or immediate with or without framework.
Conventional partials are made after the existing teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. These prostheses are placed in the mouth approximately 4 to 8 weeks after tooth extraction.
The immediate ones are done before the extraction of damaged teeth and placed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed (it will not run out of teeth during the healing period). After a few days as the dental tissue has shrunk, it will touch again to acrylate.
For this reason, they are considered a temporary solution until conventional partials can be placed.
They facilitate the hygiene of both the artificial and natural pieces that remain in the mouth and also provide better chewing, aesthetics and speech.
Its drawbacks, and that can cause an overload of the teeth and accelerate the process of atrophy of the bone and gum on which it rests. ( Partials & Flippers )
