If you have a few or all of your teeth missing, one solution is to have a denture. Dentures can be Full (Replacing all the teeth) or Partial (Replacing only few teeth) they can be plastic or Metal partial dentures.
Here is how a denture works:
A denture is made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give your mouth a natural appearance.
After impressions are taken, a denture is designed in a dental laboratory.
Dentures are made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove them for cleaning.
When you wear a denture for the first time it may take some getting used to when speaking or eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care when conducting your hygiene regime so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Our hygienist will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this.

Did you know you don’t have to eat soft foods or wear dentures for the rest of your life? Implants are a viable and clinically proven alternative to missing teeth.
Multiple teeth can be replaced with just a single implant. The implant screw can support a bridge of up to four teeth in a row, each stable and sturdy and guaranteed for life with good hygiene and maintenance.
