Custom made removable teeth which are designed to replace your missing teeth.

Is this the right treatment for you?

Do I need a new denture?

If your teeth are loose; your present denture is a poor fit or you have worn your denture for more than five years then it is time to check if a new denture is required. If this is done regularly this will maintain your jaw shape better and help you to wear a denture with less problems.

Your questions answered

How often should I replace my denture?

It is advisable to have your dentures check every year and for you to consider replacement every five years. This makes it easier to cope with changes which are hopefully small changes.

Do I have a choice of different types of teeth in terms of shape and colour

Yes we have access to a huge selection of teeth and colours to meet your requirements.

Why would I choose an implant supported denture over fixed teeth?

For people who want complete control over the cleaning or have mobility issues or have lost a lot of the jaw bone, this may be a better option. It needs less professional intervention to maintain it.

I get jaw pain is this something to do my denture(s)

If the bite or height of your dentures is not correct then this can cause jaw pain. However, there may be other reasons for this.

Do I have to have a palate on my upper denture?

The palate on an upper denture increases the surface area of your denture which also helps with the suction and retention of the denture. Removing it might make the denture loose. If you have implants to hold your denture in place then you no longer need a palate.

Why can’t I taste my food with my upper denture?

You have saliva glands on the roof of your mouth which help with tasting food. If you have a palate on your denture then this will block them.

Can I get something from the pharmacy to stop my denture moving?

You can use denture fixative creams as a temporary measure but these will not resolve the actual issue which is that the denture does not fit. Ill-fitting dentures can accelerate the wear on your jaws resulting in more problems further down the road.

My dentures don’t fit properly, what can be done?

There are many techniques such as the BPS or the suction denture technique which can usually resolve this. In some cases you may find that you can improve the fit but cannot make it perfect. This is very much dependent on how much jaw bone you have left and whether the skin is thick enough to cushion the denture.

My dentures have made me look older - why is that?

Your denture may not support the jaw in the right places making your face appear sunk in and you look older.

I don’t have teeth, how often should I visit the dentist?

It’s still advisable to visit your dentist at least once a year to ensure that the dentures fit properly and that there are no lesions in your mouth that would later become sinister.
