If you’re missing just one, or several teeth, a partial denture is an ideal option to restore your smile, and make it easy to bite and chew again.
A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth in your mouth.
If you currently have a gap in your smile, you may need a partial denture for aesthetic reasons, for eating, talking, or to protect your remaining teeth from drifting or over-erupting.
Partial dentures are not fixed – they can be easily inserted and removed whenever you like. The surrounding natural teeth help hold the partial denture in place so that it doesn’t move or fall out when chewing or talking.

Making your partial denture
Before a partial denture is made, we check the surrounding natural teeth to make sure they’ll be able to support the denture. Then we take a mould of your mouth to get a correct and accurate model to work from.
From here, there are a couple of different options depending on your budget:
Acrylic dentures are usually the most cost effective and can be made within a short period of time. They can also be relined, added to if you lose any more natural teeth, and can also be used as a temporary denture before dental implants, or whilst waiting for chrome dentures.
Some of the disadvantages are that the acrylic denture base is slightly weaker due to its irregular shape and can break, especially those made for the lower arch. To counteract this, the acrylic is usually built quite thickly, which can take a little extra time to get used to.
Chrome dentures are a more durable and functional material for a partial denture, as the frame and required components are all cast in one piece.
The components of a chrome partial denture rest on soft tissue and natural teeth, making the denture both tooth and tissue borne, thus distributing the load evenly when chewing, which helps to protect the underlying bone.
Due to the strength of the chrome it can be made in a smaller, more efficient design, making it more comfortable to wear and live with, whilst giving you the security of knowing it has less chance of breakage.
