Dentures at Holly Dental Practice

Well-fitted. Comfortable. Natural-Looking.

People lose teeth for all sorts of reasons including illness, an accident… or simply because of the ageing process.

The loss of one or two teeth can gradually lead to the loss of other surrounding teeth which, if left untreated, can lead to permanent changes in facial appearance.

At Holly Dental Practice we offer a variety of dentures that are available to replace one or more teeth, up to a complete new set of teeth. There are essentially two types of dentures, full or partial. Full dentures are more commonly constructed entirely of acrylic, whereas partial dentures are constructed of acrylic bonded to a chrome framework.

There is however an element of cross-over depending on the needs of the patient, along with more modern but less common materials such as Valplast.

Meet our expert denture clinician

At Holly Dental Practice, we are fortunate to have a very close working relationship with our local denture clinician Gordon Brook.

As a result we are kept up to date with all the newest materials and techniques, as well as having someone on hand to add his experience and knowledge to even the most difficult of cases.

As a denture clinician, rather than technician, Gordon has further qualifications that enable him to complete each stage of the fabrication of dentures, or to work alongside our dentists in more aesthetically demanding cases.

Frequently asked questions:

Why choose dentures?

Dentures are the most cost-effective solution to missing teeth and will enable you to eat and speak with confidence.

How are dentures made?

Dentures are custom made in a dental lab, using your dental impressions to get the exact fit. A trial denture is usually made to check the fit before the final, permanent version is made.

What is the difference between full and partial dentures?

A partial denture fills the gap left behind by one or more missing teeth, and clips to your existing teeth. It can be easily unclipped and removed for cleaning. A full or complete denture is used when all the upper or lower teeth are missing and fits snugly over your gums. It must be removed daily for cleaning.

Are dentures difficult to get used to?

Dentures can feel strange to begin with, but most patients grow accustomed to them very quickly. As well as getting used to wearing them, you’ll also need to start a strict routine for cleaning them every morning and night; neglected dentures can cause a number of dental problems, from bad breath and oral thrush to gum disease and tooth decay.
