Dentures

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one's natural teeth, today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Dentures are availble in the following types:

 

Acrylic (pink plastic)- These are generally the cheapest types and rely on suction from your gums to hold the dentures in. These are the dentures of choice in mouths where there are no teeth remaining.

 

Cobalt Chrome- These are more costly as they are made of a very high quality material and incorporate 'clasps' that make use of natural remaining teeth to better stabilise the denture. They generally stay in much better than acrylic dentures and are much stronger. They are generally much more comfortable and also allow you to taste your food much better.

 

Cobalt Chrome with attached Crowns- These are the most stable dentures as they include crowns which seat over your natural teeth and stay in very well. The are also very strong and comfortable.
