Types of partial dentures available
Acrylic partial dentures are a popular choice for replacing missing teeth. They have a pink acrylic base that fits over the gums and artificial teeth attached to them. These dentures are affordable and typically used for temporary or transitional purposes or for patients who cannot afford more expensive options.
One of the main benefits of acrylic partial dentures is their affordability. They are a cost-effective option for patients who need to replace missing teeth but cannot afford more expensive alternatives. Another benefit is that they can be easily adjusted or repaired if damaged, which is important for patients looking for a low-maintenance solution.
Acrylic partial dentures are also lightweight and comfortable to wear. Unlike metal or flexible partial dentures, acrylic dentures do not put any extra strain on the teeth or gums, making them a good choice for patients with weak or damaged teeth. Additionally, acrylic is a non-toxic material. There is no risk of allergic reactions.
Another advantage of acrylic partial dentures is that they are easily customizable. The base can match the colour of the patient’s gums, and the artificial teeth can be shaped and sized to match the patient’s natural teeth. This ensures a natural-looking appearance and a comfortable fit.
In summary, acrylic partial dentures are affordable, lightweight, and customizable for replacing missing teeth. They are ideal for patients who need a temporary or transitional solution or cannot afford more expensive options. At Amazing Smiles, we offer high-quality acrylic partial dentures tailored to meet our patients’ specific needs.

Chrome cobalt partial dentures are a popular type of partial denture made from a strong and durable metal alloy. The base of the denture is made of chrome cobalt, which is lightweight and strong, making it ideal for partial dentures. The metal base is designed to fit snugly against the gums and teeth for maximum comfort and stability.
One of the main benefits of chrome cobalt partial dentures is their durability. They are resistant to damage, wear, and corrosion, making them long-lasting and cost-effective. The metal base is also thin and strong, allowing for a comfortable fit and good denture retention.
Another benefit of chrome cobalt partial dentures is their aesthetic appeal. The metal base is often covered with a tooth-coloured acrylic material, creating a natural-looking appearance. The acrylic material is also durable and resistant to staining, ensuring the denture maintains its appearance over time.
Chrome cobalt partial dentures are also adjustable and easily adjusted or repaired. This makes them a convenient option for those who need a partial denture that can be easily modified to fit changes in the mouth over time.
Overall, chrome cobalt partial dentures are an excellent choice for those looking for a durable, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing partial denture option. They offer a long-lasting solution for missing teeth that can be easily adjusted and repaired. If you are considering a partial denture, speak with your dentist to determine if chrome cobalt partial dentures are the right choice for you.

Flexible partial dentures, also known as flexible resin or thermoplastic partial dentures, are a type of removable partial denture made from a flexible material. They offer several advantages over traditional metal or acrylic partial dentures.
One of the main advantages of flexible partial dentures is that they are more comfortable to wear. The flexible material conforms to the shape of the gums, making them less likely to cause sore spots or discomfort. They are also lightweight, which makes them easier to wear and less noticeable in the mouth.
Flexible partial dentures are more aesthetically pleasing than traditional metal or acrylic ones. They are available in a range of natural-looking shades so that they can be matched to the colour of the patient’s existing teeth. Additionally, they do not have unsightly metal clasps that can be visible when smiling or talking.
Another benefit of flexible partial dentures is that they are more durable than traditional acrylic dentures. The flexible material is less likely to break or crack and is resistant to stains and odours. They are also easier to clean, as they do not require special cleaning solutions or brushes.
Flexible partial dentures are also good for patients with metal allergies or sensitivities. Because they do not contain metal, they are less likely to cause allergic reactions or irritation.
Overall, flexible partial dentures offer a comfortable, durable, and aesthetically pleasing option for patients who need a partial denture. They are an excellent choice for those seeking an alternative to traditional metal or acrylic dentures.

Most private health insurance companies cover dentures as part of their extras or ancillary cover. The amount of coverage depends on the level of coverage and the specific policy held by the patient. It is important to check with the insurance company and understand the policy’s terms and conditions to determine the coverage level and any out-of-pocket expenses. Amazing Smiles Denture Clinic can assist patients in determining their level of coverage and help with the claim process.

Partial dentures can cost differently depending on the type of material used to make them. Acrylic partial dentures are the most affordable option and are made of a plastic material that is easy to adjust and repair. Chrome cobalt partial dentures are more expensive but very durable and can last many years. Flexible partial dentures made of lightweight, flexible material are the most expensive, most comfortable, and most natural-looking option.
Another factor that can affect the cost of partial dentures is the complexity of the design. For example, a partial denture with more teeth and attachments may require more time and materials, resulting in a higher cost. Additionally, if a patient requires multiple adjustments or repairs to their denture, this can also increase the overall cost.
Partial dentures may no longer fit due to changes in the jaw bone structure. This can occur over time as a natural part of aging or due to other factors such as tooth loss or gum disease. As the jaw bone changes, the partial denture may become loose, causing discomfort and difficulty eating and speaking.
In some cases, adjustments can be made to the partial denture to improve its fit, but in other cases, a new partial denture may be necessary to ensure proper function and comfort. Regular visits to the dentist and proper care of the partial denture can also help prolong its lifespan.
Pensioners may be eligible for financial assistance from the government to cover the cost of some dental services. The Department of Veterans Affairs also assists eligible veterans. The specific benefits and eligibility criteria vary depending on the state and territory. It’s best to check with your local government or health department for more information. Some private health insurance policies may also provide coverage for dentures for pensioners.

A dental flipper is a removable partial denture used as a temporary replacement for a missing tooth or teeth. It is often made of acrylic material and is designed to fit onto the patient’s gum line with small wire clasps that attach to the surrounding teeth.
Dental flippers are typically used for short-term tooth replacement, such as during the healing process after a tooth extraction or while waiting for a more permanent restoration, such as a dental implant or bridge. They are also a relatively affordable option for those who cannot afford more expensive tooth replacement options.
While dental flippers can be a convenient and affordable option for tooth replacement, they do have some drawbacks. They are not as durable as other dental restorations and can break or crack easily if not properly cared for. Additionally, they may not provide the same level of stability and function as more permanent restorations.
Overall, dental flippers can be a functional temporary solution for missing teeth. Still, it is essential to discuss all options with a dental professional to determine the best course of treatment for each patient.
