Two material options are available in acrylic with or without metal:
1. Standard – The standard material for full dentures.
2. High impact – This is suitable for full or partial dentures.
This material permits high impact strength, dimensional stability and high flexural strength.
Clasps can be made of either metal, tooth-coloured or clear.
This is usually wrought and occasionally can be cast and made of gold.
Dental D Clasps DurAcetal™ (Myerson Tooth Company) are a durable, aesthetic, metal-free acetal resin alternative to metal clasps. Dental D is available in an array of tooth- and tissue-coloured clasps that exhibit long-term colour stability. Nine shades are available which are suited for gingival areas, but not in load-bearing situations.
VisiClear™ (Myerson Tooth Company) is a thermoplastic material for clear clasps which is 100% monomer and nylon free, strong, flexible, and stain resistant.
The combination of acetal resin clasps, a chrome-cobalt framework and conventional acrylic saddles make the appliance aesthetic, strong, tooth and tissue supported, comfortable and easy to reline or add to in the future.
