Full Dentures

Full dentures may be used when all the teeth in the arch are missing. Most of our full dentures are made of a high quality acrylic. For very heavy bites we can also incorporate a metal base and hence increase strength. The use of Dental Implants can help secure your dentures into place and consequently increase stability.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when there are remaining teeth. Partials will fit around the remaining teeth and  hence restore your ability to eat and smile confidently. Healthy teeth as a result are useful to keep your false teeth stable. The incorporation of clips into the design will consequently increase stability. Partials may be constructed from acrylic, flexible resin and cobalt chrome metal. Every persons situation is different and subsequently we take the time to discuss the best options for your need.

Types of Partial:

Acrylics are the most common partial dentures:

The advantages are:

  • Quick and easy to make. As a result they cost less for patients.
  • Furthermore they are easier to add extra teeth to than other options.
  • Also If damaged they are often easy to repair.

The disadvantages are:

  • Bulkier than other  options.
  • Metal clasps if incorporated are not particularly cosmetic.
  • Long term use can cause gum problems.

These dentures have a custom made cobalt chrome framework on which teeth are added.

The advantages are:

  • Precision fitting and light.
  • Strength and also minimal thickness provided by the metal framework.
  • Able to withstand strong chewing forces.
  • A horseshoe design if used will not completely cover the palate.

Implant-retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures have grown in popularity over recent years. This is due to their ability to provide a high level of functionality, stability and comfort. There are a number of ways to connect dentures to implants. One of the most simple and as result most successful connections is a press stud. Generally we need 2 dental implants in the lower jaw or 4 in the upper jaw.
