Clasp Morinville

Removable partial dentures offer a fantastic solution for rejuvenating your smile. These dentures consist of replacement teeth expertly crafted and attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. These bases are skillfully connected by a sturdy metal framework that ensures durability and functionality. When it comes to attaching removable partial dentures to your natural teeth, you have two options: metal clasps or precision attachments.

Precision attachments, known for their aesthetic appeal and near invisibility, have become a popular choice among many. Unlike their counterpart, metal clasps, precision attachments seamlessly blend into your smile, offering both functionality and cosmetic benefits. In cases where additional support is needed, crowns on your natural teeth can significantly enhance the fit of your removable partial denture. These crowns are usually required when precision attachments are used. It's important to note that dentures with precision attachments may come at a slightly higher cost compared to those with metal clasps, but the benefits they offer are well worth the investment.
