Flexible dentures are a kind of partial denture, but these ones are made of different materials than ordinary partial dentures. Most flexible dentures are made of a thin thermoplastic such as nylon, compared to the thicker, more rigid acrylic used in full dentures.

Most partial dentures are usually made with metal parts which can sometimes show. Flexible dentures do not use any metal parts so tend to look and feel a lot more natural.
Benefits of Flexible Dentures
Flexible dentures provide a solution for patients who can't or don't want to use regular dentures. The most obvious advantage is that they aren't brittle, so they're less likely to shatter if they're dropped. The China Dental Laboratory (CDL) Co., Ltd lists some more benefits:
They cling to the gums and don't require denture adhesive or metal clasps to hold them in place.
The material is clear and allows the natural gum color to show through.
They don't take as long to manufacture as regular dentures.
