Dentures

Dentures are removable false teeth that offer a natural-looking and affordable solution to gaps in your smile. A partial denture can replace just a few lost teeth and a complete denture can be used to restore a whole set of missing teeth.

The ‘teeth’ part of the denture are usually made from acrylic (or porcelain) and mounted on a plate made from a metal alloy, acrylic or nylon. Modern materials mean dentures now look much more realistic and offer a comfortable way to replace teeth.

Treatment steps

  • We thoroughly assess your soft tissues, gums and bone to ensure they are healthy.
  • We take accurate impressions of your mouth to produce a model, which is then checked for fit and comfort.
  • When the final set of dentures are ready, you will come in for your final fitting.
  • During a follow-up appointment, we will check your dentures are settling in well.

It can take a little while to get used to new dentures as eating and speaking may be a little tricky at first. You may also notice an increase in saliva but this should soon subside as your mouth gets used to the replacement teeth.

Currently, it is increasingly difficult to get appointments at your existing or register with a new dental practice. We fully appreciate how frustrating this can feel and we are working hard to continue to provide you with a quality service.

We are asking that now more than ever, please be considerate of these difficult times and always allow 24 hours to cancel an appointment. Giving us this notice allows the team time to allocate it to someone in need.

Any failed or late cancelled appointments will now have the 'late cancellation fee; applied in full*, your further appointments may be cancelled, treatments discontinued, or registration withdrawn from the practice.

Please expect to wait a minimum of 8 weeks for an alternative appointment date, this will be made after the late cancellation fee has been paid.

Our team and clinicians are here to help as much as they can, please treat them with respect and kindness, we have a zero-tolerance policy.

Thank you for your cooperation.
