If you have lost all or some of your natural teeth, we understand that the change can be traumatic and that living with missing teeth can have a negative impact on your lifestyle.
The insecurities that come with partial or complete tooth loss can lead to depression and the gaps caused by missing teeth can weaken the jaw, make you look older and prevent you from enjoying your favourite foods.
According to the NHS¹, 27 million adults here in the UK have at least one missing tooth.
Did you know that dentures are a practical solution for tooth loss, whether it was caused by aging, gum disease, or an accident?
- Dentures replace your missing teeth and restore mouth functions, so you can chew and speak properly again
- Dentures prevent cheek sagging and loss of jaw bone mass
- Dentures restore your confidence and make you look younger
- Modern dentures have come a long way and they are now more comfortable and natural than ever before
- Our experienced dental practitioners will help you choose the right type of dentures for your needs: complete, partial, or immediate dentures.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace one or more missing teeth.
Unlike implants and bridges, which are permanently attached to a supporting structure, dentures can be removed for easy care and maintenance.
Dentures are some of the oldest tooth replacement solutions in existence and many people associate them with seniors, but thanks to the innovations in dental science the dentures used today are superior to the bulky and uncomfortable prosthetics our grandparents used to wear.
Depending on how many teeth you are missing, you can choose from several denture types:
Complete dentures are recommended for patients who have lost all of their natural teeth.
They fit over the gum or jawbone, and replace a full arch of teeth. Complete dentures provide a natural result, restore mouth functions and improve your lifestyle dramatically.
Partial dentures are recommended when you still have a few natural teeth remaining.
Apart from replacing the missing tooth, partial dentures give you the confidence to smile and prevent your natural teeth from shifting.
Immediate dentures are a quick tooth replacement solution that is fitted right after tooth extraction.
They are recommended for patients who have scheduled a tooth extraction and want to replace the tooth as soon as the tooth has been removed.
In addition to these three main denture types, you can customise your dentures even further and choose fixed, flexible, over-dentures and upper dentures.
