Dentures help to restore your smile and bite when you are missing several teeth.

What is a denture?

A denture is an acrylic or metal appliance that is worn to replace one or more missing teeth. They are often referred to as plastic false teeth. When all of the teeth are missing, dentures can be used to replace all of the teeth. These are called full or complete dentures.
Partial dentures are used when some teeth are missing but there are also some remaining natural teeth. The partial dentures fill the gaps created by the missing teeth.

What are the benefits?

Dentures are a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth. They can help you to enjoy a healthy diet and can also help to restore your smile and confidence. They are made to match your original teeth so they look completely natural.

They also provide the added bonus of supporting the structures of your face and jaws to prevent the shrunken facial appearance that missing teeth can create.

What types of dentures are available?

Dentures can be classified by the types of material they are made from. Traditional dentures are made entirely from acrylic. Dentures can also be made with a metal base or framework. Pink acrylic and acrylic false teeth are placed on top of the framework to make the dentures look natural. The metal base is usually made from an alloy of cobalt and chromium metals.

One of the advantages of metal as a material is that it is strong even when it is very thin. This means metal-based dentures are often less bulky than the traditional all-acrylic dentures.

All-acrylic traditional dentures rest entirely on the gum. The framework of the metal-based dentures can rest on the teeth and the gums making them more secure and comfortable. Rather than being made from hard rigid acrylic dentures can be made from a softer, flexible acrylic that is more forgiving and comfortable.

What are implant supported dentures?

Dentures can also be supported by dental implants. The denture clips onto dental implants which are inserted into the jawbone and act as fixed anchors. Implant supported dentures can be a life-changing solution for people who are missing all of their teeth.

How long will I have to wait for dentures?

Each denture case is individual and varies. It involves close teamwork with a dental laboratory. Impressions or moulds of the teeth and gums are taken which are then sent to a specialist dental laboratory that custom makes the dentures.

How can I take care of my dentures?

You will need to clean them regularly to maintain oral hygiene.
