Dentures

Our dentures fit snugly in your mouth to replace missing teeth, helping to eliminate eating and speaking problems, and bringing back functionality. They can also boost your confidence by restoring your smile and improving facial appearance. Dentures are removable and consist of realistic looking false teeth attached to either an acrylic or metal base.

How are dentures made?

We take measurements and impressions of your mouth, then work with a dental technician to produce your dentures. It can take several appointments to construct a set of dentures. 

If you have multiple missing teeth you may need complete dentures to replace all your upper or lower teeth and support the tissues of the face. If you only have a few gaps you can be fitted with a partial denture, which is held in place with metal clasps clipped to your natural teeth.

Looking after your dentures

It may take a little while to get used to a new set of dentures but we will give you plenty of helpful advice to ensure they quickly become comfortable.

It’s a good idea to remove your dentures at night to allow your gums to rest while you sleep but make sure you keep them moist in water or in a suitable denture cleaning solution.

Keeping your mouth clean when you wear dentures is equally as important as when you have your own teeth. You should also clean your dentures as often as you would natural teeth, to avoid bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay.

And don’t forget to attend regular dental examinations when you wear dentures so we can keep an eye on your oral health. 

How long will a set of dentures last?

If you take good care of your dentures, they should last for several years but your gums and jawbone will eventually shrink, which means dentures may not fit as well as they used to and can become loose or worn. If these are not replaced, they can be uncomfortable and cause slurred speech or problems when chewing.

An excellent long-term alternative to traditional dentures is implant supported dentures, which eliminate many of the problems associated with wearing dentures and bring back full function by keeping them firmly in place.
