Dentures

Full Dentures

When you have lost all your teeth, a full set of upper and lower dentures can be made to replace the missing teeth. This will restore some function and aesthetics, but with certain limitations. Usually the upper denture fits best because it creates a sucking action against the palate whereas the lower denture lacks retention and moves around more. Dentures should be evaluated at least every 3-5 years to check the fit, bite and tooth surfaces. Worn down denture teeth will cause the jaws to close more and can lead to jaw joint problems.

Thanks to technology, you can now choose to have your dentures fixed by placing dental implants in your jaws. The implants will be fitted with a metal bar and or locator abutments. Your dentures will be modified to clip onto the abutments providing you with retention and stability. For many, this is life-changing and probably the best investment you can make considering the health benefits and improved confidence.These dentures are called implant-supported overdentures.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Partial dentures
Partial dentures can replace one or more missing teeth and we have have been the removable and economical option of choice for decades.
 
Cast Metal Partial Denture
The cast metal partial denture is the most expensive one, but also the strongest. It is less bulky, smooth and offers the best fit. This type of denture is fabricated using a metal framework with denture teeth attached to it. It usually requires two to three weeks to deliver since the metal frame is made by a specialist laboratory. 
 
Acrylic Partial Denture

Acrylic partial dentures are more affordable, but they are more bulky to compensate for the lack of strength. They have an acrylic base with denture teeth attached to it.

 
Flexi Dentures

A new innovation allows certain laboratories to make flexible partial dentures that are thinner and a lot more comfortable than conventional acrylic dentures. It has a better fit and pink flexible clasps hug the existing teeth closely, making the need for unsightly metal clasps unnecessary.
