Dentures

If you have a few or all of your teeth missing, one solution is to have a denture. This is a removable option but has the advantage being cheaper than bridge or implants and can replace many or all of your teeth with one appliance.

  • A denture is made from a hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give your mouth a natural appearance. The denture can have an acrylic or cobalt/chromium(Co/Cr) base.
  • The Co/Cr base is stronger than the acrylic and can be made thinner.
  • After impressions are taken, a denture is designed in a dental laboratory.
  • Several appointments are needed to create a denture that has the best appearance and fit for you.
  • Dentures are made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove them for cleaning.

When you wear a denture for the first time it may take some getting used to when speaking or eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care with your daily cleaning so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Our team of friendly and experienced hygienists will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this.
