Your self-confidence and oral health can be restored by replacing missing teeth with dentures. A denture is a removable appliance that makes it easier for you to eat and speak and keeps your face from sagging.
What are my choices for dentures?
A partial denture fills one or more gaps left behind by missing teeth. The plate rests against the roof or floor of the mouth and attaches to a few of your remaining natural teeth with a metal clasp attachment.
A complete denture replaces a full arch of missing teeth. The base attaches to the gums via suction. Some patients choose to use a denture adhesive for additional security, while others opt to attach their denture to a set of dental implants.
We are also able to provide advanced denture designs with combinations of metal frames, acrylic and flexible materials.
Special attachments connecting denture frame-work to milled crowns can offer excellent fit and retention of dentures.
What is involved in a denture fitting?
Your dentist will take a scan or impression of your teeth and gums and send it to a specialist laboratory, where a technician will create your custom-made dentures.
Once it is ready, you will return to have it fitted. If you are receiving a full denture, your dentist will remove any remaining natural teeth at this stage.
Your denture will be fitted immediately afterward. However, many patients find their gums change shape over time, particularly following tooth extraction.
Should you find your dentures are poorly fitting or uncomfortable at any point, we can reline them for you.
What is the best way to take care of my new dentures?
Brush your dentures just like you would your normal teeth. Use a soft toothbrush and a special denture cleaning solution to avoid damaging the appliance.
At bedtime, take your dentures out and soak them in the solution overnight.

The government announced that from Monday 8th of June, restrictions on Dental Practices seeing patients for face-to-face appointments will be lifted in England.
We are incredibly pleased to be able to see our patients again, and we are working very hard to ensure that the Practice is a safe and well-equipped environment for us to deliver the dental care needed.
However, we would like to make it clear that we are following a phased return during the following weeks;
This means we do not have an open-door policy, and we are not yet at the point at which routine appointments can be made.
As you can imagine, with every Dental Practice in the country gearing up to return, there is an immense strain on our PPE supply chain, and so we can only provide emergency dental care with a skeleton staff to begin with, whist we implement our new protocols and source the required PPE.
We will keep you updated on our progress and readiness to book Check-ups, Hygienist appointments and other appointments over the coming weeks.
Until then, we would kindly request that only those with a genuine dental emergency or pain ring the practice and leave a message briefly describing the problem.
A dentist will then assess and advice on the best course of action over a telephone call first.
If it is agreed that you need to attend the Practice, our Receptionists will explain in detail what to expect on arrival, and all our new protocols.
These emergency patients along with those who have been cancelled midway through treatment, are the ones who will be contacted as a priority. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
I hope you have been keeping well and I look forward to seeing you soon.
