Dentures 

Your Dentures

If you have missing teeth, you may require dentures to replace the missing teeth for both cosmetic and functional purposes. A denture is a removable fixture, made from metal or plastic. Dentures typically replace all (complete) or several teeth in an arch (partial) and may be needed to improve chewing, speech, sagging of facial muscles and cosmetic reasons.

If you need dentures fitted, you will require several appointments. Accurate impressions (moulds) of your mouth are necessary to create the complete or partial denture. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to ensure shape, colour and fit are right before the final fitting. You may initially experience soreness, speech and chewing difficulties or an increased production of saliva. These symptoms will diminish once you are used to the new denture.

Complete dentures are removable for cleaning. You can brush partial dentures at the same time as your natural teeth.
