DENTURES

At Abbey Dental Clinic we can help restore your natural smile with a bespoke denture made from the highest quality materials. Losing teeth can be devastating to your confidence as well as to your overall health. Our aim is to provide a well fitting denture for our patients with comfort and appearance being of the upmost importance. We will discuss all the different materials and styles during your consultation with one of our experienced dentists and together make the correct choice for you, which will fulfil all your needs, aesthetics, comfort and function.

PARTIAL DENTURES

These are a type of denture that does not cover every tooth in your mouth. These false teeth are designed to help people who have lost typically no more than half of their teeth. They are unique fittings that help not only to give you a perfect smile, but also promote your remaining teeth to stay healthy. The materials that are used for this type of denture can be acrylic (plastic) or metal and you will discuss with your dentist which would be the most suitable material for you. Partial dentures fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech, and teeth either side of the gap may grow into the space at an angle.

FULL DENTURES

These are the best treatment option for patients who do not have any of their own natural teeth left. Complete dentures help bring back the natural looking, healthy youthful smile in people. Full Dentures can also be made from acrylic or metal – depending on what your dentist recommends. Dentures are produced by a laboratory and having the treatment carried out will require you to attend the practice for a number of appointments, usually 4 appointments one week apart but this can vary.

Benefits of dentures

If you have lost some teeth, dentures can improve the way you look, bite, chew and speak Dentures are custom made to match your mouth and can be made to look as natural as possible. The remaining teeth you have are protected from wear and tear by wearing a denture. Without dentures, the natural teeth may move or tilt, stopping your teeth biting together properly Dentures can be fitted immediately after teeth have been taken out so that nobody will know you have had a tooth out. These are called immediate dentures.
