Partial Dentures

If you have a missing tooth or teeth, your main options to consider are:

  • Accepting the gap
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Implants
  • Full or Partial Dentures

Partial Dentures are a bespoke removable plate with false teeth in place of your missing teeth. The functional and aesthetic designs of modern dentures make them far more comfortable to wear.

If you opt for Partial Dentures to replace missing teeth, it is vital to have a standard of denture which helps to restore function, comfort and aesthetics. Poor quality & ill-fitting dentures can rub against your soft tissues causing ulcers and irritation. Our Dental Surgeons at ConfiDental Clinic are able to offer the latest designs for Partial Dentures which are usually made from durable acrylic material. Small discrete clips or clasps are sometimes attached in specific areas of the denture aiding retention. These elements allow for a secure fit so you can eat and talk with ease.

Types of Dentures Available:

Acrylic Partial Dentures are the most cost effective type of partial denture. Both the false teeth and gum base are constructed of acrylic. The teeth are matched to the shade of your natural surrounding teeth and the base is gum shaded. Small metal clasps can be placed in discreet areas of the denture which clip onto selected existing teeth to help with retention.

Cobalt Chrome Partial Dentures have a very slim although strong metal frame. The false tooth or teeth are attached to the gum shaded acrylic. Cobalt chrome is a strong metal, therefore allowing the frame to be thin, strong and robust, preventing breakages. It also  enables the design of the framework to be slimmer and thinner than alternative dentures, making it comfortable to wear and aid retention. Clasps can also be attached to the custom made prescription to further aid retention.

Valplast Flexible Partial Dentures are made of flexible material from the Nylon family. They have a gum shaded base and the false tooth/teeth are made of acrylic. Both the acrylic teeth and flexible base are matched to you natural tooth and gum shades allowing the denture to blend in. The construction of the base is very thin as the denture base is strong and supple ensuring a snug fit and allowing it to move naturally with you.

Immediate Partial Dentures are constructed prior to having a tooth or teeth extracted so the denture can be placed immediately after the procedure. Immediate Dentures are usually a temporary restorative treatment whilst the extraction site/s are healing before proceeding with other restorative treatments.

Dentures should be kept in for 24 hours after extraction.

This was my first visit as a new patient at Confidental St Helier & felt quite nervous. I didn’t need to worry though, from booking in at reception & meeting my new dentist was a really good experience. I would highly recommend them.

Kind, gentle and friendly receptionists, dentist and hygienist. Was dreading visiting the dentist as I had not been for quite a while. Walked out of my check-up with a spring in my step and amuch brighter, cleaner smile on my face. So grateful I managed to get in.

I am so happy that I had my dental treatment here at St Helier. Dr Zena Al-ansari made it possible for me to smile again after more than 30 years. I had Invisalign fitted as well as other procedures during the course of a year and the care and attention I received was outstanding. Zena is such a lovely friendly dentist who puts you at ease and informs you of your procedure every step of the way. Thank you so much for giving me the confidence to smile again😃
