Dentures replace missing teeth. Partial dentures replace one or a few missing teeth, or full dentures replace all the teeth, either in the upper and/or lower jaw.
Dentures are custom-made to your mouth to fit comfortably and resemble your natural teeth.
Full Immediate dentures are constructed prior to any and will be fitted on the day of extractions so you will not have to wait any period of time with no teeth. There will be follow-up appointments to reline the denture as the gum heals. Once fully healed (after approximately 6 months) the denture will need a hard reline which will be your final fitting. This will be a removable denture and will require regular cleaning.
- As you age your mouth will change (due to bone loss in the jaw) and your denture may not fit as well as it used to. This occurs every 8-10 years and you may require a replacement denture.
