Cobalt Chrome dentures have a metal base plate or framework that sits on and around the natural teeth onto which denture teeth are attached by acrylic.
Stability (not rocking) and retention (grip) come from the metal framework gripping the natural teeth so will be affected by both the number and position of your remaining teeth.
The denture design is also critical. Time must be spent on the planning and preparing the teeth to make sure the denture has the best possible grip and resistance to chewing forces.
They can be ‘tooth borne’, (supported just by your teeth) which is always preferred where possible or ‘tooth and mucosal borne’ denture, (supported by both teeth and mucosa).
Their advantages include:
Most comfortable to wear
Easiest to adapt to
Smaller, thinner and more streamlined
The best grip (retention)
Best chewing experience
The most hygienic
Very close fitting and precise
Are designed specific to each mouth- numerous features can be incorporated to improve the denture.
Can use precision attachments
Patients have good confidence in wearing them.
Clasps can easily be tightened to increase the grip.
