A full denture is a removable acrylic base, or plate, which sits over the gums. On top of this sits a set of crafted acrylic teeth, which will be made to look as natural as possible. A partial denture is then attached to the teeth either side of the gap.
When fitting a denture, we will take an impression and precise measurements of the mouth over a number of visits. These will be given to a dental technician, who will build your dentures to the perfect size and shape.
There are many alternatives to removable dentures, such as dental implants. These implants hold a special denture firmly in place or are used to attach a permanent, hand-made set of porcelain teeth, which are as solid as real teeth. It’s a treatment that must be performed by a dentist who is specially trained.
