Dentures /False teeth
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Our dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved. There are several types of dentures suitable as a short or medium-term tooth replacement.
The plastic partial denture fits on the gum and sometimes has wire clasps to hold it in place. The metal precision partial denture fits exactly with clasps and rests on existing teeth. Or there is the flexible denture with gum coloured clasps, all are removable, and you take them out to clean.
