Dentures are a removal custom made appliance to replace multiple missing teeth. a flesh-coloured acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate, while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. The missing teeth are set on the acrylic base by dental technician and can be customised to your preference in shape and shade and character. Design features are placed to make the denture more stable, and retentive.
Types of Dentures
Impression free, Digital and 3D acrylic dentures
We have the ability to digitally scan your teeth and gums and create 3D model of mouth, which lack the inaccuracies of traditional impression materials and models, therefore creating a much more accurate tight-fitting plate with enhanced aesthetics.
The All-on-4 / 6 treatment concept is a cost-efficient method to replace missing teeth in a complete arch.
Usually each single missing tooth is replaced with one implant. If you need to replace multiple missing teeth, as little as two to four dental implants can be used to restore your upper or lower jaw with a set of fixed teeth.
The All-on-4 treatment concept is a dental implant solution strategically designed for toothless jaws. If you are unhappy with your denture or no longer want to live without teeth, it may be the right solution for you.
Implant Supported Dentures
Removable implant retained dentures or with retentive attachment system.
Chrome denture are similar to acrylic dentures however they usually have a metal framework. This frame work is not visible in the smile but helps to keep denture very closely fitted or clicked in place. The advantage of chrome dentures is that the metal often allows you to taste food and feel temperatures in mouth better. Patients often find chrome denture much more pleasant and comfortable as they seat better and lack the bulk of acrylic plastic that acts as a barrier on the palate
How long do dentures last?
After some time denture surface will wear and may need relining or resurfacing. There is also natural resorption of bone arches with age and this means dentures can become loose in time, leading to difficulty in eating and chewing.
