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.

 



Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We would like to inform you that due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the latest government guidelines.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all routine exams, treatments and hygiene appointments.

Please do not arrive at the practice unannounced.

We will be maintaining a telephone service for advice and booking emergency appointments. Dental emergencies include:

  • Severe pain for over 48 hours
  • Facial Swelling
  • Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding

We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean the treatment timelines are extended. We will be able to reconvene normal service once it is safe to do so. If your appointment needs to be postponed, one of the team will be in touch.

Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
