Dentures

Dentures are an excellent way for patients to restore the functionality and appearance of their smile when they are missing several teeth.

Custom-made partial and complete dentures are available to suit each patient’s individual needs.

A partial denture consists of a gum-coloured plate with a series of prosthetic teeth attached to it. It fixes onto a few of your natural teeth with metal clasps to hold it in place. Meanwhile, complete dentures replace all the teeth in your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both.

If you have any natural teeth remaining, your dentist will extract them under a local anaesthetic. Your dentures will be produced ahead of time, so you won’t have to be without your teeth. However, as the gums often change shape as they heal following tooth extraction, your dentist may need to remake or reline your dentures after a few months.

Alternatively, you can opt for implant-retained dentures. Your dentist will embed a small number of dental implants into your jaw to provide additional security and stability for your dentures. Implant-retained dentures can either be fixed or removable.

If you would like to discuss your option for dentures with your dentist, call us on 020 8224 7562 to book an appointment.
