What are they?

Implants, bridges and dentures

A removable denture replaces missing teeth. 'Partial' dentures replace a few missing teeth and 'full' dentures are required if all the natural teeth are missing. Dentures are made of plastic and sometimes metal as well to make them strong and less bulky.

What does the dentist do?

  • Your dentist uses putty-like material to make molds of your mouth – called 'impressions'. A dental technician will use them to make plaster models for the denture to be built on
  • The technician will make wax blocks, which fit the plaster models. Your dentist will then trim these to show the technician how your teeth should bite together, and the shape to make the denture.
  • A trial denture is made and tried in the mouth. Your dentist will ask you how it fits, feels and looks before making any final changes.
  • The trial denture then goes back to the technician who permanently fixed the teeth. The denture is then ready to use.

Your dentist may want to see you again fairly soon to see how you are getting on with the denture. If there are problems, small adjustments can be made. Dentist calls this 'easing' your dentures.


What are the benefits?

If you have lost some teeth, dentures can improve the way you look, bite, chew and speak.

  • They are custom-made to match your mouth and can be made to look as natural as possible.
  • You will be able to chew more efficiently.
  • Remaining teeth are protected from wear and tear. Without dentures, the natural teeth may move or tilt, stopping you from teeth biting together properly.
  • Dentures can be fitted straight after extractions so that nobody need know that you have had a tooth out. These are called 'immediate' dentures.

Do remember that dentures will never feel like your own teeth and it can take time to get used to them. If you haven’t had a denture before, the dentist will want to explain the difficulties of denture wearing as well as the benefits and how you should look after your new dentures and your remaining teeth.

Do I have alternative options?

Are you tired of loose dentures? Do you have loose teeth which are hard to chew on? The answer could be 'Teeth In A Day' or 'All on 4'. Modern implant techniques have evolved so that we can replace all problematic teeth with fixed teeth in a day. This innovative technique, sometimes called 'All on 4' uses four (or sometimes six) dental implants to permanently fix teeth into place.
