Glasgow Denture Studio recommends Acrylic Dentures for filling gaps or to replace all the missing teeth from upper and lower dentures, especially for those who are more price sensitive.
Referred to as “tissue borne”, the pink plastic dentures are supported mainly by the gums. While the plastic parts surround the teeth that remain in your mouth, however, no increase in stability levels will be achieved from these.
Some acrylic partial dentures feature metal clips or clasps, these are used help to keep the dentures in the correct position.
What are the benefits of Acrylic Dentures?
Acrylic Dentures are generally cheaper to make and a less sophisticated design is needed, certainly not as much as other varieties, such as partial dentures made from metal. These are used by clients who are more price sensitive because of they are low cost dentures. There are many false teeth options offering cheap dentures at the Glasgow Denture Studio.
In some situations when acrylic dentures offer distinct advantages over other alternatives including when they are only required as a temporary solution, or are being used on the day of an extraction as a temporary measure.
As with all dentures, acrylics also offer several other benefits to denture wearers. The presence of teeth can really help increase people’s self-esteem and confidence. The dentures can also help provide support for the lips and cheeks that may look “clapped in” in appearance in patients with teeth missing.
Being able to chew food correctly isn’t always possible if teeth are lost but this can be improved by wearing dentures. In turn this means that food can be enjoyed again whilst your digestive balance is increased, helping people to take the maximum nutrition from the meals they eat. As a direct result, dentures will not only improve the health of the mouth and facial appearance, but also that of the body in general.
When people lose teeth they often find they lose their ability to speak as clearly as before the tooth loss, particularly in cases of anterior teeth, that’s the canines and incisors. Opting for acrylic dentures, wearers should find their pronunciation improves and this will most likely to be more noticeable when using words that contain certain sounds, like a sibilant or fricative sound.
Acrylic Dentures are available in a stronger than normal, high impact acrylic, more suited to withstanding every day wear and tear and forces involved with eating meat where a lot of chewing is involved

How do I care for my Acrylic Dentures?
Acrylic Dentures need to be cleaned every single day, just like real teeth need to be cleaned if you want to avoid the plaque and bacteria on the tooth surface. Using a toothbrush and toothpaste or one of the specially made denture solutions available from any high street store.
Plastic dentures should not be kept in your mouth overnight as the soft tissue should not be covered all the time. If however, you do keep your dentures in at night, you must make sure that your soft tissues and the denture itself are cleaned daily ensuring good oral hygiene is maintained.
