Dentures

Our doctors can give you affordable, pain-free dentures

Ideal for those seeking affordable ways to replace missing teeth

Dentures are removable replacements for lost teeth and the tissues adjacent to them. They are produced using acrylic resin, which is something fused with various metals. We can help whether you are in need of complete dentures to replace an entire set of teeth, or if you simply need partial dentures to replace one or a few teeth. There are two types of complete dentures, “immediate” and “conventional”. We can help you decide which are right for you.

About Dentures

Dentures are ideal for those seeking affordable ways to replace missing teeth. Our doctors can also repair and secure loose dentures that have made it harder to speak, eat or smile with confidence.

What are the benefits of Dentures?

Dentures are ideal for those seeking affordable ways to replace missing teeth. We can also repair and secure loose dentures that have made it harder to speak, eat or smile with confidence. Conventional dentures are placed in the mouth around four weeks after teeth are removed, to give time for proper healing, while immediate dentures are added immediately. The main drawback of immediate dentures is that they are likely to require more adjustment after healing. The only time when dentures are likely to hurt is when they are not fitted properly, which is why we take numerous steps to ensure the perfect fit can be enjoyed from the outset. Dentures can also provide you with a more youthful appearance, supporting the structure of the face.

What is the process for getting Dentures?

You will undergo a consultation to see whether dentures are right for you. If they are, we will then decide which dentures to opt for. Before your dentures are added, your teeth and gums will be treated to ensure they are in suitable health. A mold will then be taken and the dentures will be designed to suit your gums and jaws. Once your dentures are ready, we will contact you to arrange a time for the new teeth to be fitted.

If the dentures do fit, they can be kept in place by natural gum suction, though you may wish to opt for an implant to give you better control over activities such as speaking and eating. It can take one or two months for you to become used to your dentures, though you should start to see problems like excessive saliva disappear once you have become more familiar with the feeling of having dentures in your mouth.

Who typically gets Dentures?

Dentures are ideal for people who have lost some or all of their teeth. Dentures are also known as false teeth and are often worn by younger people despite being associated with the elderly. Talk to us today to find out more about our affordable and comfortable dentures.
