A removable denture is a replacement for missing teeth. 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.
A denture replaces missing teeth, improving 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.
There are a range of dentures available to suit individual needs. Types of dentures include:
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.
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.So many options to choose from? Feel free to book a consultation to help with your decision
