Modern dentures are more comfortable, durable and natural looking than ever.

Dentures are a convenient and cost-effective way to replace missing teeth lost through tooth decay, dental trauma and gum disease.

These false teeth can either be fixed or removable, and can be moulded to replace gaps or entire sets of teeth.

Dentures have had a bad reputation in the past, but modern dentures are not only comfortable and convenient, they look more natural than ever before.

With partial and complete dentures available, this treatment can be used for patients who are missing either a few or all of their teeth.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures, which are used to replace either single or multiple missing teeth, are the most common type of denture. They consist of a plate – made of either acrylic, nylon or metal – with one or more false teeth on it. The false teeth will be matched to your own teeth as closely as possible.

FULL dentures

Full dentures can be used to replace an entire set of teeth in the upper and lower jaws. They fit snugly over the gums and jawbone to replace missing teeth, which helps to eliminate issues caused by having gaps. Full dentures are usually made of an acrylic base and a set of acrylic teeth.


Overdentures, also known as snap in dentures and magnetic dentures, are a type of denture treatment that is fully supported by dental implants. The implant provides a fixed, permanent anchor onto which your denture can be secured.



The process

We’ll start by examining your remaining teeth and gums and decide whether you would be best suited to a partial or a full denture. We will discuss all the options with you before taking scans and impressions of your mouth. A dental technician will make a denture that is moulded to fit the exact shape of your mouth.



Will I be able to eat normally after having my dentures fitted?

It can take a little time to get used to eating and chewing using dentures, so we recommend eating soft food and chewing slowly, using both sides of your mouth. Avoid food that is hard, sharp or sticky to begin with, including items such as crunchy bread or chewing gum. Reintroduce different textures to your diet gradually, until you are able to eat a full range of food again.

How long will it take to get used to wearing dentures?

Dentures can feel strange at first, and activities such as biting, chewing and even talking may feel a little different. However, you will soon get used to them.

You’ll return to the practice around a week after fitting your dentures, so that if, for any reason, your dentures still feel uncomfortable or ill-fitting, we can adjust them. Finding a dental solution that works for you is always our number one priority.

Are there any alternatives to dentures?

Depending on your needs, you may be suitable for a dental bridge or dental implants, which are both permanent, fixed solutions to teeth loss. We can discuss all your options, along with the benefits of each treatment, during your consultation.

Do I need to use adhesive?

If your dentures are fitted properly, you shouldn’t need to use adhesive, unless you have severe issues with jawbone shrinkage. However, some people feel more comfortable using adhesive when they first get dentures fitted, to help them gain confidence in their new false teeth. If you have overdentures, they do not require adhesives as they are designed to fit securely over dental implants.

How should I take care of my dentures?

Make sure to maintain good oral health, with regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups. You should also clean your dentures after every meal, using the correct cleaning products (using the wrong products can weaken your dentures).

If you need to remove your dentures, make sure to keep them moist, as drying out could cause them to change shape. This can be done by leaving them in water, in a cleaning solution, or by putting them in a sealed container with damp cotton wool. Handle your dentures with care, and avoid dropping them, as this could damage or warp them, causing discomfort.
