Having missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and make eating and speaking difficult. It also has a negative impact on your oral health, so it is vital that they be replaced. Dentures are often the ideal solution for people who have missing teeth.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable solution for missing teeth which can restore your smile and bite. They are hand-made by highly trained Clinical Dental Technicians. The base is usually made from a special gum coloured plastic. The artificial teeth are created specifically for each patient to match their existing teeth. Dentures can be complete (replacing all teeth) or partial (replacing some teeth).
What does denture treatment involve?
Treatment will involve an initial consultation to discuss your denture history and requirements. Your mouth will also be examined and a medical history taken. X-rays may also be needed. Impressions of your mouth will be taken and your bite recorded. Your dentures will be tried in with the replacement teeth set on a wax base. Once you are happy with your new smile the acrylic denture bases will be added before the dentures are fitted.
