Most common and affordable way to replace missing teeth
Dentures are a great alternative to missing teeth. We understand the prospect of getting dentures can be daunting, but don’t worry millions of people live their lives to the full whilst wearing dentures. They are custom designed to fit in your mouth, making them as comfortable and natural as possible. The base of a denture is intended to mimic natural gum tissue and is made up of carefully pigmented acrylic known as polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA. The visible PMMA surfaces are highly polished to look as natural as possible, and they also help to prevent the build-up of bacteria on your dentures to keep them feeling fresh and clean.
Either based on a metal frame, made almost entirely of acrylic or, such as the flexible ones made of thin thermoplastic (i.e. nylon or silicon) there are more type of dentures:
- Temporary Dentures
Temporary dentures (false teeth) are dentures that can be fitted straight after your teeth have been removed – also called immediate dentures. They are an option to help you carry on as normal whilst waiting for your new permanent dentures to be fitted. They may be recommended by your dentist to help ease your mouth into wearing a denture, or if you have previously had issues with sensitive teeth or gums. By reducing the pressure on your remaining natural teeth when eating, temporary dentures will let your mouth heal without you needing to make any major changes to your lifestyle.
- Partial Dentures
Upper and/or lower partial dentures (also called false teeth) are designed to fill the gap created by missing teeth so you can smile without having to worry about a thing. Partials can be unclipped and removed if wanted, and can help you feel more confident if you are missing a small number of teeth. the partial dentures can have a metal framework and claps that can attach onto your natural teeth, keeping the denture place and helping you feel more confident, or can be almost entirely of acrylic, but just like metal framework dentures, acrylic dentures have wire clasps that attach to any remaining natural teeth.
- Full dentures or complete dentures
These are a removable device that can be used to replace missing teeth. The denture teeth are made out of porcelain or acrylic and held together by an acrylic base. Partial dentures are similar but only used to replace some teeth, whilst a complete denture is a replacement for the full set. Full dentures may be needed when you lose all of your teeth and they can help fill out your appearance again and leaving you feeling more confident to smile.
