Great service, from Abul at the reception guiding me through the treatment plan and making sure I knew how to get there, where to park etc, to Dr Skidmore and Zoe with the treatment I had. Would recommend as it was better than my regular dentist. The root canal treatment price was also more reasonable than the specialist I was first recommended to by my usual dentist.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth in the mouth when you still have some of your own teeth left. They can

be used to replace just one missing tooth or can be used to replace multiple missing teeth in any part of the mouth.

Why might I need partial Dentures?

If you have missing teeth and are looking for a quick, effective method to replace these missing teeth then a partial denture is the first answer. There are several important reasons why people choose a partial denture –

  • Cosmetic –  If you have visible gaps where teeth are missing and want to improve the appearance of your smile a partial denture can replace these missing teeth. Missing teeth may also cause your face to appear “sunken” as your cheeks fall in. A partial denture can restore this lost volume back.
  • Functional– If you struggle to chew your food because you have missing back teeth, a partial denture can replace these missing teeth and restore the bite. If you have missing teeth, it is not uncommon for teeth to move over time.
  • Cost – A partial denture represents the most cost effective way to replace teeth on a per tooth basis. If you lose other surrounding teeth in the future, these can often be added to the denture as they are lost.
  • Time – A partial denture can be made in as little as 1 day in simple cases when paying for a rush delivery on a private basis

What types of partial dentures are available?

  • Acrylic (plastic) Dentures

    Acrylic (plastic) Dentures

    Acrylic dentures are the most common denture produced

    Advantages of Acrylic Dentures

    • Easy and quick to produce, often meaning they are cheaper for patients
    • They are easier to add extra teeth to than chrome framework dentures
    • Easy to repair in case of minor damage

    Disadvantages of Acrylic Dentures

    • Thickest type of framework
    • Metal clasps to grip the teeth not particularly cosmetic
    • Years of use can affect the gums by pushing them back
  • Cobalt Chrome Dentures

    Cobalt Chrome Dentures 1
    Cobalt Chrome Dentures 2

    These dentures have a custom made framework cast from a cobalt chrome alloy before the teeth are added. They are often referred to as metal partial dentures or chrome partial dentures.

    Advantages of Chrome Dentures

    • Lightweight and precision fitting
    • Metal framework provides strength with the smallest thickness
    • Can withstand strong chewing forces
    • In certain cases a “ring seat” design can be used which doesn’t cover all the palate

    Disadvantages of Chrome Dentures

    • Takes additional time to produce the metal framework (2 weeks)
    • Metal clasps to grip the teeth not particularly cosmetic
    • More difficult to add teeth onto the denture
    • If bent outside the mouth the denture will need a full remake
    • Usually more expensive
  • Flexible Dentures

    Flexible Dentures 1
    Flexible Dentures 2

    Flexible dentures are made from a flexible nylon material.

    Advantages of Flexible Dentures

    • They can grip the teeth without using metal clasps
    • They are easier to add extra teeth to than chrome framework dentures
    • Flexibility makes insertion easy and they grip the teeth very well (excellent retention)
    • Less likely to break
    • Plastic clasps to grip the teeth for better aesthetics

    Disadvantages of Flexible Dentures

    • If they do break they are often unrepairable
    • The bite strength is reduced slightly due to flexibility
    • Years of use can affect the gums
    • Not easily adjusted if ft isn’t correct

Dentures vs Implants vs Bridges

The main difference between a denture, implant and bridge is that a denture is a removable appliance to replace missing teeth and an implant or bridge is fixed in place.

A bridge is where a false porcelain tooth is fixed in place to your natural teeth to replace the missing tooth or teeth. In many cases, the natural tooth will need some reduction to make space for the replacement tooth.

Dental implants are artificial replacements for your tooth roots that are placed within the bone of your jaw to help support an artificial tooth or appliance placed on top. Dental implants require no reduction of the surrounding teeth to replace the missing tooth.

    I recently visit Dr G.Cheesman dental clinic, and I can't praise the experience enough! From the moment I walked in, the staff was welcoming and professional, making me feel at ease immediately. The clinic itself is modern, clean, and equipped with the latest technology.
    Dr.G.Cheesman is exceptional took the time to explain every procedure in detail and answered all my questions patiently. His expertise made even the most daunting procedures comfortable and pain-free.
    What sets this clinic
    … More apart is their genuine care for patients. Follow-up calls to check on my recovery after a procedure and personalized attention made me feel truly valued. I highly recommend Dr.G.Cheesman to anyone seeking top-notch dental care. This is the best dental experience I've ever had, and I will definitely be returning for all my future dental needs! A special thanks to my lovely nurse Cath, she was holding my hand throughout the procedure and reassured me as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️
  • Avatar Sian Gilmartin ★★★★★ a week ago
    A big thank you to the wonderful staff at the Vallance Centre. Debbie at reception is always so helpful. This evening, Dr. Cheesman and Sue replaced my fillings, making me feel completely at ease. I’m so happy with the results!
  • Avatar Sophia Rowlston ★★★★★ a week ago
    I've been with this practice for many years since moving to the Manchester area and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else! The receptionists are always really helpful and try to accommodate where they can.
    The dentists are especially good with my 4 year old daughter who was terrified of dentists originally but now happily jumps into the chair and puts on the glasses. We can always get family appointment times to suit us all together and it's never a long wait for an appointment for
    … More any treatment.
    Today I had some fillings performed by Darren and Pauline and they were brilliant - both very thorough, friendly and professional.
  • Avatar Stephanie Woodward ★★★★★ 3 weeks ago
    Fantastic service from the team! It was easy to get booked in, and every member of the team were polite, friendly and very knowledgeable. A special mention for Amy who made my 5yr old really comfortable, even counting the teeth of his toy, and Catherine who gives the best stickers! Highly recommend
  • Avatar Paul Malamed ★★★★★ 4 weeks ago
    My dentist is Amy, assisted by Catherine. They were both charming, caring and sensitive to my needs. I have multiple issues with my teeth, but Amy and Catherine put me totally at ease, and help me to cope. Amy is honest and kind in her approach to patients. I trust her completely because I know she has my best interests at heart. I recommend The Vallance Dental Centre 100%. I also feel very lucky to have Amy as my dentist. She is a professional who cares.
  • Avatar Kingsley Li ★★★★★ 4 weeks ago
    Highly recommend Eesha and Catherine! They were exceptional on Friday. and much better than any hygienist I’ve tried. My teeth look fantastic and feel really clean, and he clearly communicated what he was doing at all times which really helped me to feel at ease. After he was done he took the time to give me some great tips on brushing/flossing too.🤝🤝🤝

  • Can I Tighten Partial Dentures at Home?

    Over time, partial dentures may become loose due to changes in gum and bone structure. While minor adjustments can sometimes be made at home, it’s important to handle these appliances carefully to avoid damaging them. For slight adjustments, denture adhesives can be used to improve stability temporarily. However, for significant loosening, it’s advisable to visit your dentist. DIY methods for tightening dentures, such as bending the clasps or using hot water to reshape them, can lead to improper fit and discomfort and are generally not recommended.

    By understanding these aspects of flexible partial dentures, you can better navigate your options and maintain your dental appliance effectively. Always consult with a professional like Dr. Steph to ensure that any adjustments or decisions about your dentures are safe and suitable for your oral health.
