Affordable Options for Missing Teeth

Dentures are removable false teeth that are worn to replace missing teeth. These artificial teeth are generally made of acrylic and designed to best match your natural teeth. The base of a denture is called a plate and is usually made of either acrylic or metal.

Dentures can be taken out and put back into the mouth, and they are available as either full or partial dentures, depending on how many teeth need to be restored. Today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

Full Dentures

Full dentures replace all of the upper or lower teeth at once. Crafted from an acrylic base, the denture sits directly over your gum tissues, creating suction to keep it in place.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures fill in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth and are attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. These suit patients who have lost just one or a few of their natural teeth and wish to fill in the spaces left behind. This type of denture is removable and the base usually made from either acrylic or metal.

Implant Supported Dentures

With dental implants, we can permanently anchor your dentures into place or offer a stabilised way to support removable dentures all day long. As few as two or four implants are necessary.

If you’ve been struggling with getting your dentures to stay in place, then stabilising them with implants is a great alternative to consider. In some cases, we can retrofit your current denture to affix to the artificial tooth roots.

If you have missing teeth, dentures offer one of the quickest and most affordable solutions to making your smile whole again. Traditional and implant supported denture designs provide efficient and reliable results, whether you have 2-3 missing teeth or need to replace all of them at once.

Denture Adjustments and Repairs

Though your dentures are made of highly durable material, they can wear out over time. They also may require adjustments from time to time to ensure they continue to fit properly. Because your mouth changes as you age, we may need to reline your appliance. Doing so can ensure that a firm seal exists between the plate and your gums. Sometimes dentures can be damaged if they are dropped. That’s why we also provide denture repairs.

Getting Accustomed to Your New Denture

It’s common to require some denture adhesive or paste during the first several weeks after getting your new denture. You should also cut your food up into smaller pieces to make chewing more manageable. As talking with your dentures takes a little getting used to, you may want to practice speaking with your denture. In time, it will feel natural.

To care for your denture, remove it each night and soak it in a cleaning solution. Also, brush it clean the next morning to get rid of any loosened debris.
