  • Acrylic is most commonly used for fabrication of complete denture.  There is cold cure acrylic and heat cure acrylic.  Seldom are people allergic to heat cure acrylic. You might be allergic to cold cure acrylic and may not be allergic to heat cure one. You can talk to your dentist about this.  If you are allergic to both heat cure and cold cure acrylic, then you can go for dental implants for replacement of missing teeth. Implants are the best option for missing teeth replacement. If much of bone resorption has taken place, then the dentist will firstly do the bone grafting procedure and then will give the dental implants. For more info on dental implants, you can refer to the following article… http://www.identalhub.com/article_what-are-dental-implants-173.aspx
