Dentures

Dentures are removable false teeth that offer a natural-looking and affordable solution to gaps in your smile. A partial denture can replace just a few lost teeth and a complete denture can be used to restore a whole set of missing teeth.

The ‘teeth’ part of the denture are usually made from acrylic (or porcelain) and mounted on a plate made from a metal alloy, acrylic or nylon. Modern materials mean dentures now look much more realistic and offer a comfortable way to replace teeth.

Treatment steps

  • Your soft tissues, gums and bone will be thoroughly assessed to ensure they are healthy.
  • Accurate impressions of your mouth will be taken so a model can be produced and checked for fit and comfort.
  • When the final set of dentures are ready, you will come in for your final fitting.
  • During a follow up appointment, we will check your dentures are settling in well.

It can take a little while to get used to new dentures as eating and speaking may be a little tricky at first. You may also notice an increase in saliva but this should soon subside as your mouth gets used to the replacement teeth.
