For patients who are not in need of implants or full dentures, Affordable Dentures & Implants offers a wide variety of partial denture solutions at the best prices. We can make almost all of these dentures in our on-site lab, which cuts down on the time it takes to create each denture and it allows us to bypass a third party lab in most cases. These third parties are often what will drive up the cost of dentures, so we are proud to pass these savings on to our patients.
Flexible Partial Candidates
If you are missing one or several teeth in the same general area of your mouth, a flexible partial denture might be the right option for you. You can even get a partial denture for your front teeth that will still look and feel natural. The rest of your remaining teeth and gums must be in healthy condition to minimize adjustments as your mouth changes.
Affordable Dentures & Implants offers flexible partial dentures with a comfortable fit and a natural look. This type of denture is made with soft, malleable, plastic that sits on top of the gums in the gaps of missing teeth. The false teeth are molded into the device for the most natural look, and the plastic is available in multiple shades of pink to mimic real gums.
The material used to fabricate the flexible partial dentures is thermoplastic, which means it tends to be softer when inserted in a warm water. This material is more premium, they tend to be a little bit harder to find and may have a higher price tag associated with them. Flexible partial dentures also require additional time to manufacture and are not available on the same day at participating Affordable Dentures & Implants practices.
Our skilled team of denture dentists can help you decide which denture solution will work best for your unique situation.
Advantages of Flexible Partial Dentures
Some advantages of flexible partial dentures are that they are removable and offer a soft and comfortable fit that can be much easier to get used to than a metal partial denture or an acrylic partial denture.
This type of denture is long lasting, but will break down faster than a cast metal partial denture .
Be aware that repairs might not be possible with some flexible partial dentures, and they may require the replacement of the entire denture device.

Should I get flexible partial dentures?
Flexible partial dentures may be a good option for you if you are missing one or several teeth on your upper or lower arch (row). If you have thin gums or a small mouth, you may find this type of partial denture more comfortable than acrylics, as acrylic dentures are often heavier and more bulky. Since the material used to make flexible partial dentures is more premium, they tend to be a little bit harder to find and may have a higher price tag associated with them. Flexible partial dentures also require additional time to manufacture and are not available on the same day at participating Affordable Dentures & Implants practices.
Can I eat with flexible partial dentures?
Absolutely. There will be an adjustment period when you should avoid eating food that is particularly sticky or hard to chew. Once you become comfortable with your partial dentures, you’ll just need to take extra care when you’re eating all of your favorite foods so as not to damage the denture.
Can I sleep with flexible partial dentures?
While it is recommended that you give your gums a break at night, it is safe to wear these dentures overnight. Please make sure to implement all of the necessary cleaning and care procedures for your dentures as prescribed by your dentist.
How much do flexible partial dentures cost?
The cost of each denture is different depending on how many teeth need to be replaced, the size of the mouth, and the structure of the denture. Your dentist will go over each specific cost at your initial consultation.
