Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace one or more missing teeth.

Unlike implants and bridges, which are permanently attached to a supporting structure, dentures can be removed for easy care and maintenance. They are often used as a stop-gap solution between longer-term treatments such as dental implants or where other treatments like bridges are not possible.

Dentures are some of the oldest tooth replacement solutions in existence and many people associate them with seniors, but thanks to the innovations in dental science the dentures used today are superior to the bulky and uncomfortable prosthetics our grandparents used to wear.



What types of Dentures are there?

We have numerous types of dentures available to patients.

Dentures fall into two categories – full or partial dentures – and are selected depending on your needs.

A partial denture is commonly used to complete the space and aesthetics of one or more missing teeth. When all of the teeth in an arch need replacing, a full denture is a likely option.



What is the process?

Depending on the type of denture you need, they may be made over a series of weekly visits.

  • The first two stages are for impressions or intraoral scans and to measure your bite for comfort.
  • During the third and fourth stages, a wax mock-up is made to check the fit, bite, and most importantly, that you are happy with the appearance before getting the final denture made.
  • The final stage is to fit the denture.

We are up to date with the latest innovations so that you have the reassurance that our dentures respect the principles of support, stability and fit.
