Dentures are a placed in the mouth to replace missing teeth to restore full from and function. They are removable and can be and should be removed after meals for cleaning and at night when sleeping. They replace not only teeth but also the supporting tissues and help support the cheeks and lips too. Dentures allow us to restore everyday activities like eating, smiling and speaking in a pleasing and comfortable way.
Dentures can be partial, with a few teeth included, or full, a complete set of missing teeth.
We design dentures to your needs, some may require extra retention or some may require a soft lining, there are many varieties. We can also use dental implants to help stabilise a denture. If you would like further information please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the dental team.
Unfortunately the reality is that dentures will never feel like your teeth, however practical measures have been taken to make them as less irritable and natural for the user. Our dentists will be more than happy to discuss challenges and benefits of wearing them.
