Smile Confidently Again

Precision crafted dentures for lifelike comfort and unbeatable fit.

Comfortable, removable, easy to clean and use

DENTURES

Dentures are the most commonly used dental appliance in the world and bring full functionality to an enormous population of people suffering the loss of one or more teeth.

Comfortable, removable, easy to clean and use, dentures are a wonderful, budget-friendly option to replace missing teeth.

Available as either partial or full dental appliances, dentures can replace a single tooth, several teeth together or the complete upper or lower rows. Dentures also serve to stabilise your remaining teeth.

Most often made of dental acrylic substances, developed expressly for this use, dentures may be recommended following tooth extractions and may be fitted immediately after extraction healing is complete.

However, depending on your circumstances, your dentist may recommend waiting until swelling is reduced, to ensure the most exacting fit.

Types of Dentures

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are removable and are designed to replace missing teeth when some existing teeth are still present. They consist of a metal or acrylic framework that supports the artificial teeth, which are custom-made to blend with the
patient's natural teeth.

Full Dentures

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are removable and are used to replace all of the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw or both. They are typically made of acrylic material and consist of a natural flesh-coloured base that supports a complete set of artificial teeth.

Chrome Dentures

Chrome dentures, also known as chrome-cobalt dentures or cast partial dentures, are removable dental appliances that combine a metal alloy framework with artificial teeth to replace missing teeth.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are removable dental appliances that are inserted immediately after the extraction of natural teeth. These dentures are designed to provide a temporary solution while the mouth heals and prepares for permanent dentures or dental implants.

Implant Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures are a type of dental prosthesis that combines the benefits of dental implants with the convenience of dentures. These dentures are securely attached to dental implants that have been surgically placed in the jawbone which eliminates the need for denture adhesives or messy pastes.

DENTURE QUESTIONS YOU MAY have

FAQ’s

Dentures come in two primary types: complete (full) and partial. Full dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. The best option depends on your individual needs, and your dentist will guide you in making the appropriate choice.

With proper care, dentures can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years or even longer. However, it’s essential to note that the natural changes in your mouth over time might require periodic adjustments or replacements to maintain a proper fit and function.

Daily cleaning of dentures is crucial. They should be removed and brushed to remove food particles and plaque. It’s also recommended to soak them overnight in a denture-cleaning solution. Always handle with care to avoid damage, and avoid using hot water, which might warp them.

Yes, like any new dental appliance, there’s an adjustment period. Initially, they might feel a bit strange or bulky, and you might experience minor irritation or increased saliva production. However, these feelings should subside as your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures.

While there’s an adjustment period when first getting dentures, most patients find they can return to their regular diet over time. Initially, it’s best to start with soft foods and avoid sticky or hard items. With practice and patience, you’ll learn to eat comfortably with your dentures.

I can’t thank you enough Graeme, Lacey and the staff behind the scenes. This is my second denture and I cannot express the care that is taken to produce it. You are given a comprehensive plan, along with an explanation of all the steps to completion, the finished product is so aesthetically pleasing and extremely functional with assurances of support if you have any worries to the future. Graeme and Lacey are so genuinely friendly, but with a down to earth no nonsense approach to your requirements. I would highly recommend this practice and will return in the future when the need arises.

I can’t thank and praise Andrew and Graeme enough .. a year ago they changed my life around going from someone who couldn’t laugh or smile without covering their mouth and not being able to get to close to people in case my breath was bad.. I was ashamed and embarrassed having not been to a dentist in 35 years. I was petrified from a young age of dentists. I couldn’t even sit in ‘the chair’just to talk about my teeth before I met these two brilliant men. I went somewhere else the previous month before who charged a lot of money,removed all of my teeth and gave me the biggest most badly fitting temporary dentures, i looked ridiculous.. I started to wish I had never had started the process I was devasted. They said then that my gums were too difficult to make dentures for and they couldn’t do anything for me !!!! They did however refer me to The Dental Practice uk and in turn Graeme and Andrew,the best thing they could have done. They instantly made me relaxed and completely confident in what they said they could do, they had me in the palm of their hands..3 weeks later and cheaper than the first dentist’s I had everything they promised the most beautiful delicate dentures that suited my small face.I do use fixadent because of my flat palate and receding gums but I apply at 6.30 am and work split shifts till9.30 pm without once having to re apply. These 2 men are really passionate about what they do and it shows,I have my smile and confidence back and I can’t thank them enough. Sorry it’s taken a year to write the review ! Thank you for everything Lisa

£85 for a check-up which lasts 3 minutes seems rather excessive. No Xrays, despite being told when booking that the check-up included Xrays. I understand that this was after about 6 months since my last check-up (when Xrays were taken), but then, it should be reflected in the price. Disappointed by the extremely rushed approach.
