Dentures

Dentures were created because of issues such as gum disease and severe tooth decay that were often the result of missing teeth, offering an affordable and effective solution.

There are many different types of dentures - the ones most commonly used are:

Partial Dentures

These are used to replace only a few missing teeth and prevent loss of any other neighbouring teeth

Complete Dentures

These are used when you have suffered severe trauma to the teeth or have periodontal disease for example, the dentures will replace all of the missing teeth in your mouth.

Dentures are made from materials such as acrylic resins. Other various forms of cosmetic dentures are now only recently available; all you have to do is let our attentive team know what you require.

Did you know?

Dentures are a great solution for missing teeth, but some people may find that they struggle with their new appliance. Reasons for this include:

  • Their gums are in poor condition and will not allow the dentures to hold them in place. A bespoke program can be designed to help restore the health of your gums.
  • Certain foods may cause the natural suction of the gums to slacken causing the denture to become loose, so care is needed when eating.
  • The denture has not been cleaned properly/fixatives have not been used.

The time that dentures will last depends on how well they are treated as long as they are cleaned properly and worn with care then no problems should arise, and they will last a significant amount of time.

The Benefits

  • Restore the ability to chew and speak properly, which improves your quality of life
  • Enhance your appearance by filling out your facial features and restoring a natural smile
  • Provide a cost-effective solution to missing teeth, as they are generally less expensive than other tooth replacement options
  • Can be customized to fit your unique mouth shape and preferences, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit
  • Promote better nutrition and overall health by enabling you to eat a wider variety of foods
  • Help prevent further oral health issues such as gum disease or tooth decay caused by shifting teeth due to gaps from missing teeth.

Alternative:
Dental Implants

The most common and effective alternative to dentures is dental implants. Dental implants are titanium fixtures that are surgically inserted into your jawbone and act as anchors to hold in your replacement teeth for a more permanent lasting effect.
