Denture Types - Dental Implants, Full Dentures - BACDT

Acrylic partial dentures


Acrylic partial dentures consist of replacement teeth that are set in pink or gum coloured acrylic resin. To aid the retention of the denture one or more wire clasps are placed around the natural teeth in the mouth.

Dental Implants


Whereas a traditional denture rests on the gums, an implant supported denture is a denture that is attached and supported by a dental implant. They are usually made for the lower jaw as traditional dentures are normally unstable on the lower jaw.

Flexible Dentures


Flexible dentures are an alternative choice for those who can’t tolerate the traditional type of denture and for those who are not suitable candidates for dental implants.

Full Dentures

Adhesive-free options for fitting dentures

A full denture replaces all the teeth in either the upper or the lower jaw, or both. They are made from either acrylic or metal. The denture base is contoured to match your gums and the teeth in dentures today look very natural.

Full sets of Dentures


Full sets of dentures are used when there are no natural teeth left in the mouth on either the upper or lower jaw. There are two main reasons missing teeth should be replaced.

Hybrid Dentures


Hybrid dentures are used to replace teeth when all or a high proportion of the teeth are missing. They are used most when there is a lot of bone loss and the patient has difficulty wearing a conventional denture.

Immediate Dentures


When replacing your missing teeth with dentures the Clinical Dental Technician will go through the process of making them specifically for the individual so they look great and fit perfectly. This takes time, so what do you do in the meantime following tooth extraction?



Overdentures are dentures that fit over natural teeth or implants. They are supported by and attached to either dental implants or root filled tooth roots. These are used to support and retain the overdenture.
