The use of metal clasps or precision attachments for the positioning and retaining of partial dentures has been a time-honored method of restoring function and improved esthetics for patients with missing dentition. However, clasp partials also require comparatively strong teeth to support the stresses involved. In cases where the patient has only a few natural teeth remaining, these stresses, in combination with ongoing bone and tissue resorption and greatly reduced propriosensitivity, can lead to the loss of weak or questionable dentition, hastening the ultimate necessity for full dentures.
Oral Arts has the solution you’ve been looking for!
Now, without difficult precision attachments, unsightly clasps or esthetic compromise, you can deliver a superior partial at a cost your patient will appreciate. The Virginia Partial replaces the old Cu-Sil and Gasket partials.

No special tooth or tissue preparation is needed for the Virginia Partial system. Simply send a master cast poured promptly and carefully from an alginate impression along with opposing model and bite registration.
The best impression material to use is polyvinyl or alginate. The powder should be gently stirred from the bottom of the container to the top to redistribute the heavier elements that control shrinkage in the impression. The model should be poured promptly. Most other impression materials compress the tissue too much leading to increased adjustment time.
