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 but for people with very heavy bites we can also incorporate a metal base for greater 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 restore your ability to eat and smile confidently. Healthy teeth 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, often meaning they cost less for patients
  • They are easier to add extra teeth to than other options.
  • 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 combined with minimal thickness provided by the metal framework.
  • Able to withstand strong chewing forces.
  • A horseshoe design if used will not completely cover the palate.

The disadvantages are:

  • Takes longer to make, an extra week when compared to acrylic dentures.
  • Metal clasps incorporated are not particularly cosmetic
  • Sometimes more difficult to add teeth to the denture.
  • Usually more expensive.

Flexible dentures are made from a flexible nylon material.

The advantages are:

  • Easier to add extra teeth to than cobalt chrome dentures.
  • Flexibility makes insertion easy and they grip the teeth very well.
  • Less likely to break.
  • Plastic clasps to grip the teeth for better aesthetics.

The disadvantages are:

  • If they do break they are often unrepairable.
  • Flexibility can reduce bite strength.
  • Years of use can affect the gums.
  • Not easily adjusted if incorrect fit.

Implant-retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures have grown in popularity over recent years, due to their ability to provide a level of functionality, stability and comfort that is difficult to achieve with conventional dentures. Support for dentures may be provided by dental implants when fully integrated into the jaw. There are a number of ways to connect dentures to implants but here at Ainsty Dental we use a simple press stud. Generally we need 2 dental implants in the lower jaw or 4 in the upper jaw.
