Are you experiencing dental pain?
Dentures are a removable solution for replacing missing teeth. Most people think of dentures as a replacement for all the teeth that many people’s parents or grandparents may wear. Whereas dentures can be a solution if you are fully “edentulous”, partial dentures are also a cost-effective option for replacing one or more teeth.
Because no teeth are left, full dentures use suction or various types of adhesive to remain in position. Alternatively, dental implants can also be placed and connected to the denture with clips or magnets as a more secure method of retention.
When you are missing as few as a single tooth, a partial denture is a cost-effective option. Partial dentures are “clipped” to the remaining adjacent teeth and use these for support.
We recommend that you visit to have your dentures checked on a regular basis. When you attend for your six-month check-up, we will advise you if your dentures require any modifications such as relining. At the same time, please tells us if your dentures are causing you any problems or pain.
Dentures which do not fit correctly and go unchecked can cause you serious problems. These include damage to your gums, as well as any remaining teeth, in the case of partial dentures. The latter could even result in the loss of teeth due to unforeseen forces arising from the ill-fitting denture.
Regular maintenance of your dentures will avoid these problems.
