Removable Prosthesis

A denture is a removable appliance used for the replacement of missing teeth. It is made of an acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals.

 

Complete Dentures replace all the teeth, whilst Partial Dentures replace a few missing teeth.

 

Immediate Dentures are placed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed, but may require more adjustments after healing is complete. An advantage of Immediate Dentures is that the wearer does not have be without teeth during the healing period.

 

We also provide Flexible Dentures, which have a softer feel than acrylic dentures and are often a useful replacement option for 1 to 3 missing teeth. Flexible Dentures are also more retentive in the mouth than standard dentures which reduces the risk of them falling out when chewing.
