Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many different denture designs, some which are permanent and rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.

In the past, dentures were bulky and sometimes painful but advances in technology now mean they can be fitted precisely with comfort in mind. They are also produced with great aesthetic detail and when fitted, blend naturally in the mouth.

These same advances mean denture costs are much more affordable so be sure to contact us today to discuss the options that are best for you.

  • What types of different dentures are there?

    Complete dentures

    Complete dentures are a full set prosthetic that cover the complete arch of the mouth, replacing all missing teeth within the arch.

    Acrylic partial dentures

    Acrylic partial dentures are used when only a few teeth are missing within the arch. They are removable, light and cost-effective.

    Immediate dentures

    Immediate dentures are typically temporary dentures fitted after tooth extraction to allow the extracted area to heal. They are used during the transition period before permanent options are fitted.

    Metal partial dentures

    Metal partial dentures are dentures that are fitted with a metal frame and clasps that clip onto the surrounding crowns in your mouth. They are advantageous as they are firm and help prevent adjacent teeth from shifting in the mouth.

    Valplast flexible dentures

    Valplast flexible dentures are a premium product made with a type of thermoplastic that is lightweight and versatile. They have invisible clasps that surround natural teeth and are for a natural feel in the mouth.

    Implant retained dentures

    Implant retained dentures replace a complete arch of teeth and offer the most secure fitted solution. They also assist with jawbone preservation.

  • How often do I have to clean dentures?

    The daily cleaning of dentures is important as plaque and tartar can build up on false teeth, just as they do on natural teeth. We recommend using a soft bristle brush in conjunction with chemical or mechanical denture cleaners.
