Dentures – what they are used for?
Dentures provide one of the replacement options for missing teeth, often known as ‘false teeth’ or a ‘plate’. They are usually made from acrylic, sometimes in combination with a metal framework. Complete dentures replace a full set of missing teeth, whereas partial dentures work in combination with natural teeth.
At Infinity Dental Clinic we use the latest and most state-of-the-art technology to provide our patients with the highest standards of care in Cosmetic Dentistry. We will make sure you are aware of all the available options to replace your missing teeth.
Why choose a denture?
A denture replace missing teeth, improving the appearance by filling the gap. A partial denture may also help prevent adjacent and opposing teeth drifting out of position after an extraction.
A denture can help reduce sagging of the cheeks and lips by replicating the underlying bone and gum structure preventing a sunken appearance.
Types of Denture
Implant Retained Dentures
By placing a small number of dental implants, it is possible to secure a denture in place, without the need to use fixative. This type of denture is the most secure.
Cobalt Chrome (Metal) Dentures
These have a metal framework and so are lighter, thinner and stronger than acrylic dentures. They can clip onto the natural teeth to improve retention.
Compressed Acrylic Dentures
High quality material with improved retention and a more natural, bespoke appearance.
Flexible Valplast® Dentures
These are flexible partial dentures. They mould between the teeth and gums avoiding the need for metal clasps or full coverage of the palate. These dentures are usually very well fitting.
Standard acrylic dentures available on the NHS.
What should I expect?
It takes on average four appointments to construct your denture. This will include impressions, a ‘try-in’ stage, and when you are happy the final fit. Each stage will be explained to you by your Dentist.
Do you suffer from loose dentures?
Implant retained dentures are an alternative to standard removable dentures.
Implant retained dentures are ideal for anyone suffering from loose or ill-fitting dentures and can be life-changing. They offer peace of mind so you can avoid embarrassing situations where your removable denture may let you down. They are a cost effective way of replacing multiple missing teeth compared to a full set of dental implants.

It has been a wonderful experience with Infinity dental clinic. From the first day of registration, hygiene visits, up to when I got my implant fitted.
Staff are very polite, friendly, and the atmosphere is just really nice. The professionals are exceptionally good and you just feel relaxed and confident that you are in good hands. Procedures are well explained and discussed, fears allayed and my experience here at Infinity has erased all previous fears and anxieties about dentists.
A big thank you to the entire team.

I have been attending Infinity dental clinic for some years now and have always seen Dr Wilson for all my dental care. I could not be happier with the treatment and care I have received over the years at this clinic. Dr Wilson Really is a fantastic dentist and I look forward to carrying on my routine dental care at this practice.
I would recommend Infinity Dental Clinic because of their exceptional tailored advice. The biggest thing for me was the long term vision and plan they provided me with…
I have recently had composite fillings and am just starting teeth whitening. I cannot recommend this place enough, it is the best dental clinic I have ever seen. I thank Dr. James, he is really good and put my mind at ease about the works required. Explained the best course of action, and a schedule for works. I am amazed as i cannot even see where the composite fillings are. This staff at the clinic provide an excellent service, very polite, friendly and professional. I am very satisfied with all the work they did on my teeth. Thanks you to Dr. James and the team of infinity dental clinic.

An enormous thank you to Dr Hannah Wilson and Yvonne, who made every dental visit a positive, comfortable and entertaining experience.

Dr Wilson really does her best to ensure that you get the best results possible and is always super informative, reassuring, gentle and supportive. From start to finish, each member of the team have been superb, supportive and enthusiastic – it has made every step of my journey worth it! I honestly would not go anywhere else, I’ve found my forever dental practice and I could not be happier.
