What are Dentures?

Dentures are essentially removable teeth. They can be a full set, or a partial set, depending on how many teeth you have missing. Dentures are made out of different materials, acrylic which is a type of plastic or made out of a metal framework, usually using chrome. The choice of material used for your dentures usually depends on the number of teeth that you are having replaced, as well as the strength of denture that you need. Acrylic will be the ideal choice for front teeth, as you won’t want any metal there. Metal dentures are ideal for those with a relatively strong bite.

Denture repairs and adjustments

No matter which material your dentures are made out of, they will eventually degrade over time in some way. Usually, this means they will begin to come loose, mainly due to the change of your mouth’s shape as you age. Most of the time, a simple adjustment is all it takes to get your denture back to how it should be, but sometimes you may need a full denture replacement. No matter what you need done, be it a small adjustment, repair of a broken tooth or even a full replacement of your dentures, our team will be able to help you out.

Frequently Asked Questions

A denture is a removable device used to replace missing teeth. It is used to replace either just a few teeth or a full arch.

Dentures can be made out of a variety of materials, such as acrylic which is plastic in nature or a metal framework denture made from chrome.

The type of denture you need, will depend on the number of teeth to be replaced, the strength of the denture needed and the condition of your remaining teeth. If you have a very strong bite a metal denture may be more suitable for you but if your teeth are missing at the front of your mouth you may prefer not to have any metal showing when you smile and so an acrylic denture may be a better solution.

Dentures will become loose over time because your mouth will change shape as you grow older. We advise that you visit your dentist regularly to check the fit of the denture and that it is still doing a good job. Occasionally, the denture will need to be adjusted to improve the fit. Alternatively, if your mouth has changed substantially, it may be necessary to have a new denture made.
