Tired of ill-fitting dentures? Do they rub and cause sore spots, drop while you are eating or feel too bulky so you can’t taste your food? Then you have come to the right place!
Here we use the latest techniques and technology in dentures which look very natural and give you back your smile and healthy appearance.
At your consultation we will carry out a thorough assessment of your bite, your natural smile and how you chew. We discuss what is important to you and what you would love to achieve out of your denture. Taking this into consideration, we can prescribe the most suitable type of denture available on the market including Precision Cobalt Chrome dentures (that don’t cover the palate) and dentures with extra strong acrylic if yours are prone to breaking.
What are Dentures?
A denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Commonly referred to as 'false teeth', a denture is usually made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal. A partial denture is fitted to replace some missing teeth whilst a complete denture is indicated when all natural teeth are missing. A good set of dentures helps you to eat, speak, function, and often improves a person's appearance.
How Long Does it Take to Make Dentures?
Depending on the complexity of each case, the duration of the treatment will vary. After the initial visit of examination and diagnosis, the subsequent visits will include taking impressions of the mouth, bite registration, try-in of the denture, fitting and review.
What to Expect
New dentures always feel strange when first placed in your mouth. Several days or weeks will be required before you get accustomed to them. Adaptation varies with different persons and often time and experience are essential before dentures can be worn comfortably and function effectively.
