Dentures Yarm
1. Partial Denture. 2. Implant retained dentures. 3. Full dentures.

As the name implies, partial dentures are used when only one or some teeth are missing.

Like full dentures, they can be made from acrylic but there are also further options. 

Cobalt Chrome Dentures – This partial denture is one of the most common options. It comprises an ultra-thin metal base holding a set of acrylic teeth. Cobalt chrome partial dentures are extremely strong, highly durable and more comfortable than bulkier acrylic dentures. 

Flexible Dentures – This partial denture Is becoming an increasingly popular option if you are in need of a small denture to replace one or a few adjacent teeth. It comprises a thin, lightweight, thermoplastic material that is somewhat natural in appearance. It is preferred for the high level of comfort. 

Full dentures can be difficult to keep secure. Denture adhesives can help but are often unpleasant and not always effective. Implant retained dentures offer a solution to this problem. Dental implants are placed to support the dentures and hold them in place. 

Full dentures are made from acrylic and used if you have no no teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They rest on top of your gums and rely on suction and muscular forces to hold them in place. These are most commonly known as ‘false teeth’.

If you don’t think that dentures are for you, there are other options available. 

A dental bridge or dental implant may be a suitable alternative. Your dentist will be able to assess and discuss all options available for replacing your missing tooth.
