At The Cullen Dental Practice we offer a comprehensive service for those patients who require dentures or replacement of existing dentures. We are happy to assess each patient and advise individually as to the best options available.
Dentures replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps.
Dentures are removable false teeth (acrylic or metal) that can be taken out and put back into the mouth. They fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps. Gaps, created by missing teeth can cause various problems including eating and speech, also teeth on either side of the gap can grow into the space at an angle.
Although dentures may take some time getting used to, they are a great help. Your smile will look more natural and you will be able to enjoy all kind of food again.
There are two main types of dentures:
Dentures are custom-made in a specialist lab by a dental technician, from measurements and impressions of your mouth taken by our dentist.
At The Cullen Dental Practice we will be able to help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you, based on how many of your teeth would need to be replaced. We will explain the costs involved.
If you treat your dentures well, they should last for several years. However, due to normal wear and natural changes of your mouth shape, at some point your denture will need to be relined or re-made. Loose, worn dentures can cause health problems, including sores and infections, so it is important to replace them before they cause serious problems.
We recommend our patients to come and see us annually for a denture checkup.
While wearing dentures it is very important to keep your mouth clean and healthy. You should brush your dentures and remaining teeth, gums and tongue twice a day with paste to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems.
You should also regularly remove plaque from your dentures and soak it in a solution of denture-cleaning tablets to remove stains and bacteria.
Our aim at The Cullen Dental Practice is to provide the very best treatment and advice for our patients.
We offer a comprehensive service for patients who require new dentures or replacement of existing dentures. Please contact us for a no obligation assessment.
