Depending on how many teeth you have left, how healthy those teeth are and how long you want the denture to last for, will determine which type of partial denture is right for you.
It is important to note that wearing a partial denture will help to protect and preserve your natural teeth and will help to spread the force when biting or chewing food.

An Example of how a Partial Denture can look Very Natural
ACRYLIC (PLASTIC) PARTIAL DENTURES
Acrylic (plastic) partial dentures are the most affordable and adaptable type of partial denture available.
They can be used in the majority of cases and can be made to match natural teeth or to create a whole new smile depending on the case.
They are held in by thin stainless steel metal clips which ensure a comfortable fit and keeps them from moving.
The other great advantage of acrylic partial dentures is they can be added to easily and inexpensively if in the case you lose another tooth and need that tooth added to the denture.
Sometimes Acrylic partial dentures are used in cases where the patient is waiting or saving for more expensive treatment at a later time and just needs a inexpensive temporary fix.
The average life span for an acrylic partial denture is from about 6-10 years or so depending on how well they are cleaned and looked after.
CHROME (METAL FRAME) PARTIAL DENTURES
Chrome (metal frame) partial dentures are used in cases where the patient still has some healthy natural teeth and is looking for a more long term solution.
Chrome partial dentures are made from an chrome alloy material which makes them extremely strong and resistant to breakage as well as being very thin and comfortable to wear.
They are held in by chrome clips which ensure a perfect fit and stop any movement.
The chrome clips are hidden and the denture teeth are attached to the frame for maximum strength and asthetics.
Chrome partial dentures like acrylic partial dentures can be added too at a later stage if you lose another tooth or if you break one of the clips.
The life span of a chrome partial denture is from between 12-20 years as long as it is worn and cleaned regularly .
FLEXIBLE (VALPLAST / THERMO PLASTIC) PARTIAL DENTURES
Flexible (Thermosens) partial dentures are normally used in cases were the patient does not want any metal in there dentures but still want a long-term solution.
The reason why sometimes a patient does not want to use a chrome partial or acrylic partial is because in some cases, depending on how a person smiles or talks, the metal clips can sometimes be seen.
The benefit of having a flexible partial denture is that unlike a chrome and acrylic partial it has clear plastic clips as apposed to stainless steel or chrome clips.
The advantage of the clear plastic clips on a flexible denture is that no matter the persons smile you will never see anything that looks unnatural.
The one negative of flexible partial dentures is they cannot be added to if in fact you lose another tooth in the future.
The average life span for a flexible partial denture is between 8-15 years depending on how well it is cleaned and looked after.
