Full or partial dentures, made from acrylic or metal can replace missing teeth and restore your smile, dental functionality and your self-confidence.
Full dentures replace an entire arch of upper or lower teeth, whereas a removable partial denture replaces several missing teeth in a row. A partial denture is secured with metal clasps that attach to your healthy teeth. Full dentures rest on your gums and are secured in place with a dental adhesive.
Dentures are made from flesh-coloured acrylic. The upper arch covers the palate or roof of the mouth. The lower arch is horseshoe-shaped to accommodate your tongue, covers your gums and is custom-moulded to fit snuggly.
Dentures feel and function just like real teeth and permit you to speak and chew normally. Dentures are customised for your mouth, and the weight of the prosthetic device mirrors the weight of natural teeth.
Dentures, just like your natural teeth, collect food particles and bacteria. Ideally, you should remove and clean your dentures after every meal.
At night, remove and place dentures in an antibacterial cleaning solution to kill any lingering germs.Back to Treatments
