Removable Dentures

What is a Removable Denture?

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.

Why Choose a Denture?

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.

Types of Denture

There are a range of dentures available to suit individual needs. Types of dentures include:

  • Acrylic dentures – Standard acrylic dentures available on the NHS
  • Compressed acrylic dentures: High quality material with improved retention and a more natural, bespoke appearance.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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. click here for more info 

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.
