Nesbit partial dentures

A Nesbit denture is a removable partial denture for only one side of the upper or lower arch. It replaces a tooth or teeth and usually is retained by clasps, preferably with rests on the supporting teeth to prevent the denture from settling into the gum tissue.

Patients may feel that this has the benefit of being single-sided and therefore there is no connecting metal or plastic across the roof of the mouth or behind the lower front teeth to connect to the opposite side of the jaw. Unfortunately, this supposed benefit also creates a problem because there is no bilateral support from the opposite side of the mouth to prevent damaging forces from affecting the teeth that support the Nesbit.

Also a unilateral removable partial denture is smaller than a conventional bilateral removable partial denture, and therefore it is more difficult to handle and control when inserting it into place. Needless to say, a Nesbit can be potentially dangerous to manipulate into place.

Cusil dentures

Does anyone know a dentist in the los angeles area that makes cusil dentures?
my mom has a partial that she hates- the metal claps hurt her and she doesn't want to deal with them anymore, ie have them adjusted.
she has about 5-10 teeth left on both upper and lower.
cusil dentures seem ideal- lets her keep her current teeth and can become full dentures later on.
i did some research on cusil dentures, but nothing comes up for los angeles.
also, what is the costs? i thought of finding a manufacturer out of state and providing the information for a local dentist here.


Sometimes a bone graft is necessary to get adequate retention and stability for a full denture. Generally this is unnecessary for partial dentures--this dentist may have a rationale, but you haven't told me enough to say I agree with this dentist.
I've already told you I don't particularly care for Valplast, so unless you specifically told the dentist you wish to avoid the metal clasps, I wouldn't let this dentist push you into a Valplast partial you may not require.
I'm inclined to advise you to go to another dentist for another opinion.

...and similar materials are vinyl-based denture materials. To my knowledge they are not used for crowns and fixed bridges--and would be far too soft to use for this purpose.
The rationale for Valplast is that clasp-like extensions of the denture base can be made to snap over the teeth. They can be pink (to match the gum) or white (to match the teeth). What you gain compared to traditional acrylic-based dentures is that you don't use metal clasps in a cosmetically critical area.
You do however sacrifice some stability when compared to partial dentures with cast metal frames
