Dentures are removable false teeth that come with a host of benefits, including helping to improve how you eat and speak, as well as boosting your confidence by restoring your smile. They can also enhance facial shape, especially around the lips and in the cheek area. You can either have partial dentures for a few missing teeth or full dentures to replace a whole set of teeth on the upper or lower jaw.
They are usually made from acrylic, or a combination of acrylic and metal, and modern materials mean that partial dentures will blend in beautifully with existing teeth and complete dentures can pass for the real thing.
If you have always had loose full dentures, or find them uncomfortable or starting to slip, we may suggest using implants to stabilise them. This involves having a few strategically planned implants placed into your jaw, with a special denture that fits on top of them. Implant-retained dentures create a natural looking, confident and secure smile.
