Flexible dentures, also known as flexible partial dentures or flexible removable partial dentures, are a modern and innovative solution for patients who require partial dentures to replace missing teeth. These dentures are made from a flexible and lightweight material, typically a type of thermoplastic, which offers numerous benefits compared to traditional rigid dentures.

One of the key advantages of flexible dentures is their superior comfort. The flexible material allows the denture to adapt and flex with the natural movements of the mouth, providing a more comfortable fit. This means that patients can enjoy eating, speaking, and smiling without the discomfort often associated with traditional dentures.

In addition to comfort, flexible dentures also offer excellent aesthetics. The material used in these dentures is translucent, allowing them to blend seamlessly with the natural colour of the gums and surrounding teeth. This ensures a more natural and attractive appearance, enhancing the patient’s confidence in their smile.

Another important benefit of flexible dentures is their durability. The flexible material is resistant to breakage, making these dentures less prone to damage than traditional acrylic or metal dentures. This means that patients can rely on their flexible dentures for a longer period of time, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.

Maintenance and care for flexible dentures are also relatively simple. They can be easily cleaned with a soft toothbrush and denture cleaner, similar to traditional dentures. However, it is important to note that certain cleaning agents, such as those containing alcohol or bleach, should be avoided as they may damage the flexible material.

Furthermore, flexible dentures offer a non-invasive alternative to traditional dental treatments. Unlike dental implants or fixed bridges, flexible dentures do not require any invasive procedures, such as drilling into the jawbone or altering adjacent teeth. This makes them a more comfortable and less time-consuming option for patients seeking tooth replacement solutions.

It is worth mentioning that while flexible dentures offer numerous benefits, they may not be suitable for everyone. Patients with extensive tooth loss or certain oral conditions may require alternative treatment options. Therefore, it is essential for individuals to consult with our qualified denture technicians to determine if flexible dentures are the right choice for their specific needs.

Partial metal or chrome denture

Chrome dentures can be used to replace any number of missing teeth. The framework behind the teeth is much thinner than acrylic dentures and clasps are usually placed to anchor the denture to the natural teeth. Chrome dentures tend to be more comfortable and secure. The greatest benefit of a chrome denture is, the design. They can be made to be much smaller and thinner than acrylic dentures, which can be beneficial to overall oral hygiene.

It is important to note that any patient requesting a new partial denture who still has some of their own natural teeth, will be required by law to have a referral form signed by a dentist. This is just a simple form they sign to say you’re suitable for a new partial denture.

We can either give you a letter to take to your own dentist to sign and return, or we can arrange for you to see one of the dentists in Merseyside we deal with locally.

If you have any further enquiries, please don’t hesitate to ask.
