Partial dentures, as the name suggests, are dentures used to bridge the gap between teeth in a part of the mouth. The method of attachment of the dentures to the existing teeth differs from denture to denture. The material of the denture also varies. You will be given a particular partial denture depending upon your personal needs and the dental hygiene of your mouth.
One method of fixation of the dentures is using clasps, which hook onto existing teeth on either side of the gap. These are usually not very well fitted and can loosen easily. The more precise and snug dentures are, the more they will cost. However, the better a denture fits in your mouth, the easier it is for you to go about your daily activities and the less you have to worry about the dentures falling out or shifting while you have them on. The bridge denture is a fixed partial denture, which uses the adjacent teeth to bridge the gap. The teeth on either side are ground slightly to make room for the crowns that will be fitted into them to hold the replacement teeth in the form. Partial dentures can be made with different materials, such as acrylic or metal. The metal dentures are much more durable, comfortable and natural looking than the acrylic denture.
Brilliant , professional, competent & thoroughly deserved of a Top rate review. I have had a denture implant which is so comfortable & looks just stunning. The care and precision taken by Dr Faresh Desai, his wonderful team & technicians has been outstanding. Now I am having crowns & a partial denture so am qualified to leave a 5 Star plus review. I cannot recommend highly enough.
It is imperative to be cautious about the hygiene of your denture in the same way as you were about your normal oral hygiene. Daily cleaning of the denture is necessary. Denture specific cleansers are available and must be used to keep the dentures clean. Precautions should be taken to prevent the dentures from falling. Dentures can easily break and/or chip. Place a towel underneath the dentures when you are cleaning them and place them in a container when they are not in use. At night, put your dentures in water. It is necessary to keep them moist at all times.
Fantastic dental practice with brilliant staff. Each and every team member makes you feel welcome and they are all extremely helpful and polite. I enjoy my visits here and I’m always made to feel comfortable, which is important when visiting the dentist. I highly recommend the practice.

I have just finished my treatment with Ascent Dental after 6 months of having Lingual braces to adjust crowding in my upper teeth. I have been very impressed with the service given to me, and would thoroughly recommend the practice to anyone looking to improve their smile. Dr Gursh Bajwa made the treatment comfortable, yet effective, and I am very happy with the results. I would like to thank all the staff at Ascent Dental for the high level of care and service they have given me.
Incredible customer service, a consistently professional team that manage your cosmetic dentistry course and all its aspects. I put off my improvements for years because of horror stories I had heard about cosmetic outcomes, but delighted I picked Ascent Dental Care Solihull to finally manage my treatment. So a big thank you to Laura the cosmetic dentician and Rose for holding my hand proverbaly as I went through my course. A special mention for Laura’s supporting technicians and the reception staff, an excellent team full stop.
You are in good hands.
I want to say a huge thank you to: Jaz, Faresh & all the staff that took care of me throughout my treatment.
I never used to smile and show my teeth on photos.
I can now smile with confidence, as my smile has been returned.
Anyone who is considering undergoing dental treatment should definitely speak with Ascent Dental first.
As they listen to what you are trying to achieve, and make you feel safe, reassured and satisfied.
I have been visiting Ascent Dental for a year now as I required an implant to one of my front teeth. I have been treated by Dr Faresh Desai and I have found him to be very skilled technically and someone who has extremely high standards with regard to his treatment and the appearance of the finnished product. I would recommend him and his team, who are all very friendly and efficient. Before choosing Ascent Dental I explored a number of other dentist who all came up short with regard to my expectations, but Faresh has met all of them and as such I have now had a second implant.
Very professional and I absolutely love my teeth. Highly recommend this place.
As someone with an extreme fear of everything dental, I can’t recommend Ascent enough. All of the staff are the most knowledgeable, loveliest, most patient people. The service is amazing and the fees are really reasonable. After 20 years of dentist hopping and emergency treatment, I finally feel I am on the road to overcoming my fears. Actually excited for the next part of my dental plan!
As a nervous patient I can highly recommend this dentist. Jaz is very professional as well as being understanding and nothing is too much trouble.
All Staff are most friendly x
The care I received was exemplary from my dentist Mo he made me feel completely relaxed and exxplained the procedure every step of the way I would most definitely use Dorridge again for any root canal work.
Have received excellent care at this dentist. Have a really bad fear of dentists and I have always been shown so much patience and kindness. Really recommend them if you get anxious about dental visits!
I first had dental treatment (implant & veneer) with Faresh in May 2013. It was a years worth of treatment and the end result was so natural looking. As my bottom teeth weren’t the straightest, I decided to have a brace fitted with Gursh. After just over 17 weeks, I had my brace removed yesterday (25/8/14) and for me, it was a Hollywood reveal. My TEETH ARE AMAZING!!!
Excellent customer service, the team really looked after me, answered all my questions, explained what was going on in my appointment. I made some enquiries for teeth alignment and they were fab, gave me all the information I needed. Highly recommend Ascent to anyone, particularly, if like me, you get nervous about a visit to the dentist!!
Made me feel relaxed when I was feeling a bit anxious, really friendly & knowledgeable about what they are doing & sent me off feeling very confident. Followed up with a courtesy call the next day.
Really pleased with my treatment so far 👍👍 …
