A dental denture is an appliance which is worn to replace lost or missing teeth to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.

A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.

Essentially there are three main types of dentures:

  • Acrylic dentures
  • Chrome dentures
  • Flexible valplast dentures

Dentures are removable. At Essence Dental Clinic we can make chrome dentures which can use clips and clasps to ensure a tight fit, therefore preventing the denture from displacing when you are eating or talking.

We can also use precision attachments to give an even better, tighter fit of the denture, almost feeling like a fixed denture in the mouth, until it is carefully removed. Dentures can also be constructed with implants creating a solid base structure. The denture will then fit well on to these implants and hence feel like a much more fixed alternative to traditional dentures that sit of the bone, gums and teeth only.

What are Valpast Dentures?

Valplast are flexible partial dentures made from an unbreakable nylon resin at Essence Dental Clinic. Valplast flexible partials denture offer affordable choices for missing teeth replacements, without sacrificing the quality of the end-result for the patient.

Immediate dentures

Where teeth need to be removed, it is not always practical to have the these teeth removed and for the mouth to heal prior to the denture being made. For this situation, such as when front teeth need to be removed, we can construct an immediate denture, which is placed and provided to you at the same time as any teeth are removed. This avoids you needing to be without teeth that are visible when you smile and talk.


There are alternatives to dentures to replace missing teeth. Depending on the health of the surrounding teeth and gums, implants and bridges are fixed options.
