What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. They are used to create natural-looking teeth for the upper or lower jaw using a removable prosthetic plate. Teeth can be added to partial dentures as needed and therefore they can be used for many years as your needs change.

What are the different types of partial dentures?

There are two main types of partial dentures: 

Aside from the type of material used to make the dentures (either plastic or metal), the main difference is the type of clasps used to hold the partial dentures securely in place in your mouth.

The material and clasps used determine both the lifespan and cost of your partial dentures. At The Denture Clinic we custom make both types of partial dentures. We will discuss all the options and offer solutions that best suits your needs. 

Why choose partial dentures?

When you lose teeth for whatever reason (tooth decay, gum disease or an accident) it can effect your life in many ways. Being able to smile without gaps can provide a huge boost to your confidence and self esteem. There are many health benefits that come along with choosing partial dentures. Partial dentures allow you to speak clearly, enjoy eating and preserve your remaining natural teeth.

Correctly fitted partial dentures can prevent any remaining teeth drifting out of position and balance chewing and grinding forces more evenly in the mouth. It can also preserve your facial structure and bone density which can be badly affected when gaps are left in the mouth. 

What do partial dentures cost?

If you have some gaps in your mouth from missing teeth, partial dentures are a cost-effective option to restore your smile. The cost of partial dentures will depend on the type of denture and how many are being replaced. See our pricing page for more information. 

What should I expect from my partial dentures?

Advances in denture technology mean that after some initial adjustments most people are comfortable wearing partial dentures. You can enjoy a wide variety of foods and feel more confident in all aspects of your life. You will need to look after your partial dentures and have regular checks with your dental prosthetist to check for any wear and tear. We recommend having your partial dentures relined every two years to ensure a comfortable fit.
