What are Dentures?

Dentures are custom-made dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth. We offer full and partial dentures in various materials. Full dentures may replace all upper and lower teeth and fit over your gums and jawbone, while partial dentures replace a few missing teeth, and may include using clasps which attach to your natural teeth. Flexible dentures are metal-free and may be an option for comfort and convenience in certain clinical cases.

FAQs

What is the difference between full and partial dentures?

A partial denture fills the gap left behind by one or more missing teeth, and clips to your existing teeth. It can be easily unclipped and removed for cleaning. A full or complete denture is used when all the upper or lower teeth are missing, and fits snugly over your gums. It must be removed daily for cleaning.

Are dentures difficult to get used to?

Dentures can feel strange to begin with but most patients grow accustomed to them very quickly. As well as getting used to wearing them, you’ll also need to start a strict routine for cleaning them every morning and night; neglected dentures can cause a number of dental problems, from bad breath and oral thrush to gum disease and tooth decay.

How do I look after my dentures?

Clean them as you would your normal teeth – once in the morning and once at night. The routine requires you to brush them with toothpaste or soapy water, soak them with soluble denture-cleaning tablets to remove stains and bacteria, then brush again. If you’re taking your dentures out to sleep, keep them moist to stop them from drying out and changing shape. You’ll need to visit the dentist regularly to make sure your dentures are fitting and functioning correctly.
