Dentures help prevent problems caused by missing teeth, such as eating and speech difficulties, and teeth on either side may grow at an angle.
Sometimes, all the teeth need to be removed and replaced.
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and gums. Then, send it away to have a temporary denture made for you.
First, they extract any remaining natural teeth under a local anaesthetic and fit your temporary denture.
If you have been missing all your teeth for some time, you may be able to skip ahead to the final fitting of a permanent denture.
If you have had teeth extracted, your denture will likely need to be relined or remade after a few months because your gums change shape as they heal.
“Dr Rahul Nehra is the wizard of teeth. We went there to get a partial denture for my mum. Mum dislikes going to the dentist because it’s very painful. I was very nervous before the first appointment. But he was so calming and picked those teeth out so quickly. She did not feel a thing. The hygienist lady did wonders with Mum’s gum. All in all, very good service. I would recommend this place to everybody, even if you don’t need a denture.” Reka, RH10
Partial dentures are a great option for replacing a smaller number of teeth, even in different areas of the mouth.
A partial denture is a gum-coloured acrylic plate with the necessary prosthetic teeth attached to it. It clips into place via a metal clasp that attaches to a few of your remaining natural teeth.
Whether you have a partial or complete denture, you must remove them for regular cleaning and disinfecting with a specialist denture cleaning solution.
If you have many missing teeth, talk to us about dentures or implants (a better, more stable solution).
