Dentures

  • There are two types of dentures that replace teeth: Partial dentures or complete dentures. Partial dentures can replace a few teeth or many teeth. They can be made from acrylic or metal and acrylic. Dentures help to aid chewing, appearance and speech.
  • A partial denture is probably the easiest way to replace a tooth or a few teeth, however patients can find them uncomfortable and may find that the clips to keep the denture in place are visible on smiling or opening their mouth.
  • Dentures also tend to exacerbate any underlying gum disease (periodontal disease)
  • Depending on bone levels, complete dentures can be difficult to make and may require denture fixative to remain in position.
