    Question Flexible partial dentures

    I have had a metal partial the last five years that I've had to use a partial cement in order to keep it secure in my mouth. Next month I am having more teeth pulled and a new partial made. The only teeth I will have will be my two front teeth on top. I've been advised that a metal clasp around those front teeth will result in the teeth shifting. I am so tired of having to reglue during the day because chewing something has broken the seal loose.

    I am considering the flexible partial denture and would like some advice and opinions on the flexible partial vs the metal/plastic one I have now. Any advice and opinion would be greatly appreciated.

    if you are probably going to add more teeth over time and be converted to a complete upper denture i would go with flexible plastic
