Dental Framework FAQ Guide

1. What is a dental framework?

Dental frameworks are a long-term solution for tooth loss and the instability of your gum and are usually made of acrylic, nylon, or metal. The specific material used to make the dental framework will depend on the type of denture you have placed. For example, partial dentures may use metal clips with acrylic bases, while full dentures may be made of acrylic, but acrylic or metal gingival attachments may also be used. Nylon can also be used in place of acrylic. It is usually prepared for the elderly and functions similarly to acrylic dentures.

2. What is the mechanism of a dental framework?

Dental frameworks are stronger and more stable than acrylic ones, and they are installed on your gum without touching too many unnecessary tissues. Dental frameworks make partial dentures stronger and lighter, covering less gum so they feel more natural and help protect the remaining teeth.

The installation of a dental framework requires more manufacturing time, but you may be more comfortable with the option in the long run. This dental framework fits the grooves or “rest seats” that the dentist has modified on your natural teeth and has better support than acrylic parts.

Depending on the position and number of your existing teeth, the angle of the teeth, and the support they need, there are many designs for choosing a desirable dental framework.

Part of this design incorporates clasping. The clasps exist to take advantage of the grooves in your teeth, allowing maximum retention of partial dentures. They are also placed to counteract the force exerted on your existing teeth from the rest of the frame. If these forces are not addressed, the topical can cause damage to your remaining teeth, and your dentist will try his or her best to make it suitable for you. Sometimes the dental framework is not placed in an ideal aesthetic area and the metal may seem inaesthetic. Hopefully, your smile and vanity can handle a little sparkle, allowing existing teeth to be maintained and the unstable parts to be stabilized.

3. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the dental framework?

As a dental device, a dental framework has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage of wearing a dental framework is that it is tailored to ensure that it is compatible with the soft tissues of the mouth and prevents the risk of allergic reactions or gum irritation.


  • Dental frameworks are usually more compact than plastic ones and do not fully cover the roof of the mouth like the plates in plastic dentures. In this way, the roof of the mouth is covered, which improves the user’s sense of taste and allows you to taste food better.
  • In addition, the durability of dental frameworks, which are usually made of metal, means they are less likely to break or bend out of shape like more fragile plastic denture substitutes. Although dental framework can be more expensive than many alternatives, the durability of dental framing makes it worthwhile for individuals looking to improve their quality of life, oral health, and smile, and with our fantastic financial packages, you can spread the cost, making them more affordable.
  • Dental frameworks have a better fit than acrylic dentures because the metal used to make them is cast, which means they are more comfortable. Additionally, the snug fit of these dental frameworks, when placed in the mouth, is very comfortable for the wearer, which can relieve those who are concerned about the sensation of having a foreign body in the mouth for prolonged periods of time, although the longer you wear it, the quicker you will adapt and start to feel comfortable using them.
  • In dental frameworks, the snaps are made of cobalt chrome and cast as part of the actual metal frame. The properties of cobalt chrome have the perfect balance of deformation, stiffness, and elasticity, which means it is less likely to be broken or worn due to accidental circumstances.
  • The dental framework can provide tooth support (best), gingival support (worst), or tooth and gum support (second best). The dental framework is the element that stops the denture from sinking into the mouth and moving as you bite down. All dental frameworks have some dental support, the more the better.

Since metal is stronger than plastic, we can make it thinner and smaller, which means your dentures won’t feel as bulky as plastic dentures. The difference between metal and plastic is that plastic will be loose and bulky, while metal will fit better, hold well and be less bulky. They’ll also form less plaque because they’ll be smaller, which means your teeth will live longer.

  • Because we can use the clasp to hold the denture better, it means the dental framework is nicely over the denture – we don’t need to cover your upper jaw, which also makes you eat more comfortably as you can feel the texture/temperature of the food on your taste buds.
  • No vomiting will happen as the dental framework is tightly fixed into your gum and does not go back deep into the mouth.

In addition to the listed advantages of the dental frameworks, dental frameworks also have some disadvantages which are recommended for you to take a quick look at for better your choice.


  • Cost – Cobalt chrome, which is normally used to make a dental framework, is much more expensive. Aside from its more expensive raw material, the dental framework takes a longer time to create and requires more skills from dentists and technicians to make a good set of it. This means you have to pay more for the quality that the dental frameworks provide.
  • Aesthetics – The dental framework doesn’t look good because of the color. The only metal part you might see is the clasp. We always try to hide the snaps where possible, but sometimes if you want to use them, they are on display. If this is the case, the pros and cons need to be discussed and then the patient will decide what is best for them.
  • Time – the production of a cobalt chrome framework takes longer than acrylic dentures.

If the teeth are lost in the future, it will be difficult to add teeth to the dental framework. Repair is also more difficult as it requires welding and if the frame is bent and doesn’t fit, it usually needs to be redone, which means you need a whole new dental framework. This may sound troublesome to some clients, so if you think the potential risks are high, you had better take other choices into consideration.

4. What are the normal types of the dental framework?

According to different classifications, dental frameworks can be divided into various types. Here we only list the two main types.

  • Standard dental framework

The standard framework is made of cobalt-chromium alloy. It is the most popular because of its high-cost of performance. However, it is relatively heavy. Some patients are allergic to cobalt-chromium alloys.

  • Cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloy dental framework

The titanium framework is also known as the premium framework. It has many advantages over cobalt chrome frames: including being highly bio-compatible, lighter, less prone to breaking, and a better fit.

5. How long can a dental framework last?

According to statistics, a dental framework can be used for 5 to 10 years. During this time, both your mouth and dentures can undergo major changes, resulting in an inappropriate and unappealing appearance. Then you may need to see your dentist for a later check.

6. How much does a dental framework usually cost?

A dental framework usually costs £1,200 (single jaw) or £1,995 (two jaws). The structure and complexity of the dental framework you need will also affect the price of your dental framework. For more details, it is necessary for you to consult your dentist.

7. How to maintain your dental framework?

Your dental frame will contain acrylic so its care is similar to acrylic dentures:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water after each meal to remove loose food debris.
  • Brush your teeth daily with a soft toothbrush or soft fake toothbrush. Regular toothpaste can be too abrasive and can cause scratches on the acrylic portion of the metal framework. Therefore, a cleaning sheet attached to the denture is used.
  • While eating tough food or staff, pay attention not to let them touch or against the dental framework so as to reduce the possibility for it to be moved.

8. How do I go about getting a dental framework?

  • In the beginning, in order to get your dental framework, you will be assessed to make sure that the dental framework is the right treatment for you. If yes, then the impression of your teeth and gums will be taken by the dental lab to produce your custom-made dental framework.
  • When the dental framework is ready and you start your appointment, your dentist will place the dental framework in your mouth and make any necessary adjustments when the dental framework is suitable for the appointment.
  • The new dental framework is like new shoes, you need time to get used to it, and clients should try to get used to the new dental framework as soon as possible and eat with the framework after the dental framework is installed. After a period of time, the dentist will ask you to go back to the dental office to check the structure of the dental framework so that the dentist can make further adjustments.

9. What are the main steps in making a dental framework?

There are four main steps in denture fabrication, including:

  • Measurements: The first step in making a dental framework involves a dentist making a dental imprint on your mouth and checking all the movable tissues in your mouth. This mold will be used to create a plaster model of your mouth so that a properly sized and shaped dental framework can be made. In addition to dental prints, your dentist will also take various measurements of your jaw.
  • Cast: The next step is to cast a model using a plaster cast and dentures. The plaster cast will be placed in a device called an articulator, which replicates the jawbone. Then, a few facsimile teeth are metal-attached denture models. The metal is then fixed into a gum line and the model is checked for fit. It may be necessary to try on several casts to determine the best fit. The best fit model will be used to create the final tooth framework.
  • Final Installation: In this step, the dental material of your choice will be settled down and your dentist will make the final dental frame. Starting with the step of removing the tissue, which will affect the whole installation process, the dentist will make sure that he changes as little tissue as possible in your mouth, the dentist will put the part where the frame is attached to your chin to hold it in place.
  • Adjustments: Once the final dental frame is installed, you will have enough time to adjust to it, or raise any discomfort with your dentist, to change your dental frame. This step can help you get used to the new tooth structure as quickly as possible.
