Esthetic Clasps - available for flexiable partials, conventional frames, even repairs
Tooth, tissue and clear clasps and frames are available from ROE. They are easy to integrate into a new partial casting or to upgrade an existing partial denture. Some say it's better than chrome, because they rarely require ongoing adjustments.
These materials are stronger than acrylic and look great. What's more, most are are biocompatible and monomer free, preventing allergic reaction.
They can also be more comfortable and clasps can set deeper into undercuts for better retention. Thermoplastics are more stain and bacteria -resistant than acrylic. Slick-surfaced acetal leaves no place for bacteria to reside.
When your patient is asking for natural looking partials, add clear, tooth and/or tissue colored clasps.
