Full dentures, or false teeth, are a replacement option when all of your teeth are missing. They consist of a full arch of teeth which fits with suction over the gums and jawbone. We use advanced technology and materials to ensure that each set of dentures look as realistic as possible, so it is almost impossible to tell that they are not your natural teeth. And we understand that how your false teeth feel is just as important as how they look, so our denture experts use their years of experience and training to ensure your dentures fit comfortably and function just as well as your natural teeth would.
Traditional dentures, as opposed to implant retained dentures (or “fixed” dentures) are a good option for patients whose gums and jaws are too weak or unhealthy to support dental implants.
The Denture Process
The process of getting a full set of dentures requires several appointments. At your initial consultation we will assess your needs and talk about the options available to you, including timing and costs. The next step is taking detailed measurements and impressions, or moulds, of your teeth. We use these moulds to create your tailor-made dentures in our denture laboratory using the latest materials and technology. Finally, fitting your dentures may require more than one appointment. It’s important to get the fit and appearance exactly right for you, so adjustments will be made until you are completely comfortable and happy.
Dentures are designed to be removed overnight, and we will give you full instructions on how to keep them clean and make them last for as long as possible.
