Dentures from £450*
*Please note that the fees for dentures vary depending on the complexity of each case and the material used.
People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth so they can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Dentures are removable false teeth that fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth. They help with chewing and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps.
Dentures can be made of:
a combination of acrylic and metal
A ‘complete’ or ‘full’ denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. A ‘partial’ denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth.
Dentures may break if you drop them. Always clean your denture over a bowl of water or a folded towel in case you drop it. To clean your dentures, the general rule is: brush and soak every day. Brush your dentures first, to help remove any bits of food. Use a non-abrasive denture cleaner, not toothpaste. Be careful not to scrub too hard as this may cause grooves in the surface.
Soak your dentures every day in a denture-cleaning solution. This will help remove any plaque and stubborn stains that are left. It will also help to disinfect your dentures, leaving them feeling fresher.
Don't keep your dentures in overnight unless there are specific reasons for you to keep them in.
