Dentures

We are here to hear from you

Dentures

Dentures are removable false teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace one or a few missing teeth while full dentures are fitted if all of your upper or lower teeth are missing.

Denture technology has improved greatly with time and there are lots of new materials and options available on the market. Conventional dentures are made from either acrylic or metal but modern materials include Valplast® which are flexible dentures made using a pressure-injected nylon base.

Dentures are great at replacing gum shrinkage which prematurely ages the appearance of the mouth following loss of your teeth. Well-made dentures will give you your confidence to smile and chew food again. Dentures don’t just replace missing teeth, they also support the facial muscles and create more youthful appearance in the process.

Frequently Asked Question

As dentures are customised to fit your mouth, they should not hurt. They do take some getting used to and may need some minor adjustments to them if they rub anywhere. If you had some teeth extracted before getting your dentures fitted, they may feel a bit uncomfortable during the first three months as your gums and jawbone adjust to their new shape. After this phase, the dentures will need to be relined or remade to fit the new shape of your gums.

Multiple appointments are required to make a good set of dentures. At the first appointment we will assess your mouth and jaw and take a mould of your teeth and gums. You will have the opportunity to try your false teeth before the final set are made. We will assess the fit to make sure they are comfortable and that you are happy with the appearance of the teeth. Having new dentures or transitional temporary dentures can be a life changing experience, we will makes sure we are with you every step of the way!

If you take good care of looking after your dentures, they can last anywhere between 5 and 10 years. Since your jaw and gums are gradually changing shape as you get older, they may start to become loose and may need replacing for a better fit. Other indications of remaking new dentures are when the teeth become discoloured, tooth surfaces become worn flat or when deep lines develop around your mouth. There may not even be a reason for you wanting to have a new set made other than simply having a spare set in the drawer! 

You should take your dentures out and wash them with soap and water. We recommend that you soak your dentures in water with a denture-cleaning tablet a few times a week to remove any food particles and prevent staining.

Dentures may break if you drop them. Always clean your dentures over a bowl of water or a folded towel in case you drop them.

Denture adhesive can be used to aid the retention of dentures and enhance patient comfort. It can give that additional peace of mind and increase confidence.

We advise that you take out your dentures overnight to relieve soreness and prevent infection.

It is important that you still visit the dentist regularly after getting a set of dentures. The dentist will make sure your dentures are in good shape and your soft tissues are healthy.
