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