Flexible dentures are partial dentures, made from different material than ordinary partial dentures. Most flexible dentures are made of a thin thermoplastic such as nylon, compared to the thicker, more rigid acrylic used in full dentures

  • Metal free
  • Ideal for patients who don’t want metal clips
  • Perfect for patients who are allergic to acrylics (monomer)
  • Can be used in combination with metal framework
  • The design can be kept small where appropriate

Partial acrylic denture

This is designed so that 1 or more missing teeth can be set into an acrylic base, which is fitted against the remaining natural teeth. This simple option offers the patient the chance to restore their smile and function. With careful care and construction, a patient can restore a normal looking appearance with comfort.

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.

Partial flexible denture

Compared to acrylic partials, sunflex dentures are lightweight, more comfortable and practically invisible. They offer a perfect degree of flexibility, providing maximum retention and stability.


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.
