People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth so they can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Dentures are made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal. A 'complete' or 'full' denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. A 'partial' denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps or 'precision attachments'.
Why should I wear dentures?
Full dentures, to replace all your own teeth, fit snugly over your gums. They will help you to eat comfortably and speak clearly, and will improve your confidence. Partial dentures replace teeth that are missing and can sometimes be supported by the teeth you have left. If you have some gaps between your teeth, then your other teeth may move to take up some of the space, so you could end up with crooked or tilted teeth. This could affect the way you bite and could damage your other teeth.
How long will my dentures last?
So long as you treat your dentures well, they should last several years. However, your dentures will need to be relined or re-made due to normal wear or a change in the shape of your mouth. Bone and gum ridges can shrink, causing your jaws to meet differently. Loose dentures can cause health problems, including sores and infections, not to mention discomfort. A loose or ill-fitting denture can also make eating and talking more difficult. It is important to replace worn or poorly fitting dentures before they cause problems.
Are dentures my only option?
No. Implants are another option to consider. Ask our CDT/Denturist for more information on this. You will find more information in our Implants denture page.
What's the complete denture procedure?
At our clinic we take our time to make sure that your denture is as good as it possibly can be. Therefore there are several stages in denture construction resulting in around 5 or 6 appointments. Here is a rough guide as to what you can expect at each appointment:
Usually a review appointment is required to assess how you are getting on with your new dentures and make any final adjustments.
