Dentures can be partial or full. Partial dentures can replace a few missing teeth. Dentures can be fitted straight after teeth have been taken out so that no-one knows you have had teeth removed.
A partial denture is the easiest way of replacing missing teeth, but some people find this uncomfortable and eventually decide to have a bridge or implant made. A partial denture is a plate with false teeth attached to it. The plate is made of either plastic, or metal and plastic, usually with clips to keep it in place. Sometimes the retaining clips can be visible when you smile or or open your mouth, but this depends on the position of the false teeth and clips.
We will be able to advice you on the range and suitability of the different types of plastic teeth available. Dentures have teeth designed to give a natural appearance.
You will be required to make up to 6 visits to be fitted with dentures.
Dentures are more prone to gum disease and tooth decay and infections of the gums.
When you are not wearing your dentures keep them in proprietary antiseptic solution after removing all plaque with a denture brush.
