What Is A Flexible Partial Denture

A flexible partial denture is a type of dental prosthesis used to replace missing teeth to restore oral function and aesthetics. It’s a removable appliance designed to fit around the existing teeth in the mouth. They are often made of flexible, nylon-like material that’s more comfortable and less conspicuous than traditional rigid dentures.

How Much Do Flexible Partial Dentures Cost?

The cost of partial dentures varies widely depending on several factors, but they typically range from around $700 to $2,000 or more per arch. 
But when you buy direct from a trusted warehouse, they can cost as little as $450.

Can You Add Teeth to A Flexible Denture?

Because the support of a flexible partial denture is based on your remaining teeth, you typically can not add teeth to a flexible denture. Instead, you must get a replacement.

What do Flexible Partials Look Like?

Flexible partial dentures have a unique appearance due to the materials used in their construction. They are designed to blend in with your natural teeth and gums, making them less noticeable when worn.
