There are now a number of options you can choose in terms of partial dentures. The traditional rigid plastic denture still has its place in dentistry but now there are smaller flexible dentures called valplasts that can often be much more comfortable to wear as they do not cover the entire top of the mouth. They are also a bit more aesthetic as they do not utilise metal clasps that often can be seen.
