Generally, metal denture bases are preferred for partial dentures. The advantages of CrCo RPD vs acrylic partial dentures are:

  1. Mental denture is stronger than plastic denture.
  2. Retention of denture is better and will not become loose.
  3. Less bulky and more comfortable in mouth.
  4. Less plaque accumulation on metal than on acrylic therefore less fungi or bacteria accumulation and less infection of gums.
  5. Longer lasting than acrylic dentures.
  6. In maxilla, no coverage of rugae or palate (impact on taste and temperature).
