Dentures

People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth so they can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Dentures are either made completely of acrylic plastic, or partially of a stainless metal alloy. The use of the metal enables dentures to be made which are normally thinner and cover less of your mouth. 

A 'complete' or 'full' denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.

A 'partial' denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps.

Replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. A complete or full denture replaces the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. Dentures need to be regularly checked and replaced when they have worn to such an extent that their function and appearance have significantly deteriorated.
