What are acrylic partial dentures?

Acrylic partial denture

Missing a few teeth but want a natural-looking solution? Acrylic partial dentures are a great option. These custom-made dental prosthetics are designed to seamlessly fill gaps left by missing teeth. Unlike full dentures, which replace all your natural teeth, acrylic partials focus on replacing just a few. Whether you need one tooth replaced or several, acrylic dental partial dentures can be crafted to perfectly suit your specific needs.

The supporting structure of the denture is made from a gum-coloured acrylic material, which provides a natural look and blends in with your gums. Artificial teeth are then inserted into this base, creating a robust and aesthetically pleasing replacement for your missing teeth. Another benefit of acrylic partial dentures is the ease of adding to them or relining them as needed. Additionally, repairs to acrylic dentures are typically quick and hassle-free.

Choosing your clasp style: A touch of personalisation to your acrylic partials

When designing your acrylic partial denture, you get to choose the clasp style that best suits your needs. 

Our dental prosthetists will discuss your preferences and recommend the most suitable clasp type based on factors like:

The location of missing teeth: For teeth near the front of your mouth, gum colored clasps might be preferred.
The number of teeth being replaced: Metal clasps might offer more stability for extensive replacements.
Your cosmetic priorities: If a natural, invisible look is important, gum colored clasps might be the best choice.

We understand the importance of both aesthetics and function. We will help you find the perfect balance for your new smile!

No denture question is too big or too small!

Flexible dentures are well-suited for replacing one or two missing teeth. The gum-coloured clasps blend seamlessly with your gums, making them virtually invisible for a natural dental aesthetic. Flexible dentures are known for their impressive strength, offering long-lasting wear.

Known for their durability and thin clasps, these are a strong option for replacing multiple teeth.

Combining the strength of chrome with the flexibility of thermoplastics, these offer a unique solution.
