DENTURES & PARTIALS
Our natural-looking, comfortable dentures are expertly constructed from a variety of durable materials and offer an alternative solution for missing teeth. These fully functional replacement teeth can help improve how you eat and speak, and boost your confidence by restoring your smile.
Our partial dentures are designed to blend in with existing teeth and our full sets of dentures look so realistic, that no one will guess they aren’t the real thing.
The Fitting Process
Your first visit will include a thorough assessment of your soft tissues, gums and areas of bone to make sure they are suitably healthy.
We will take accurate impressions of your mouth to create a model that can then be checked for fit and comfort.
A final set of dentures is produced and you will return for the final fitting.
Following on, you will be required to come back for a follow-up appointment. This appointment will allow us to check that the dentures have settled in well.
New dentures will take a little while to ‘bed in’ and may need a little adjustment when they have settled into your mouth.
It may feel a little strange when you first eat with new dentures, so it’s a good idea to start off with softer foods and gradually introduce more tricky items. Your saliva flow may increase but this will soon ease off. Your speech may also be affected, but just keep on talking and you’ll soon get used to speaking normally.
You will need to remove your dentures at night to give your gums a rest. They will also need cleaning when you take them out so use a toothbrush or denture brush to keep them fresh. Store them in water or denture fluid overnight so they don’t dry out and lose their shape.
Make sure you attend regular check-ups so we can make sure your dentures are still fitting properly and remain comfortable.
