There are three types of dentures available at DentalKind:

  • Acrylic
  • Flexible
  • Cobalt-Chrome

Removable dentures can be partial or complete depending on the number of teeth remaining. We can now place dental implants to produce an implant supported denture with improved retention and stability.

Acrylic Dentures

These are the ‘traditional’ type of plastic denture. They are held in by suction and may have metallic clasps to engage teeth to help hold them in.


Advantages

  • Cost effective
  • Aesthetic
  • Easy to add to/repair

Disadvantages

  • Bulky
  • Do not conduct heat
  • Need a lot of coverage

Flexible Dentures

This type of denture is becoming more common. They are very case specific and the flexibility in the material allows it to engage slight undercuts and ‘grip’ teeth to create a more rigid fit.

Advantages

  • Good retention
  • Thin
  • Strong
  • Can be unilateral to replace small spaces

Disadvantages

  • Difficult to add to
  • Can place pressure on compromised teeth
  • Need excellent hygiene and healthy remaining teeth

Cobalt Chrome Dentures

This type of denture has acrylic on a cobalt chrome frame. The result is a rigid, well fitting denture with great cosmetics. The denture can be planned along with crowns or small adjustments to your teeth to result in a precision fit denture with a superb fit. The metalwork is hidden from the smile, so you need not worry about it being visible.

 

Advantages

  • Good retention
  • Thin
  • Strong
  • Do not need a lot of coverage
  • More hygienic

Disadvantages

  • Requires planning
  • Higher lab processing fees
