People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth. Dentures are made of either acrylic (plastic) or 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. It may be gripped to your natural teeth with metal clasps.

Do I need a denture?

They will help you to eat, and will improve your confidence and self-esteem. If you have gaps between your teeth, then your other teeth may move to take up some of the space, so you could end up with crooked or tilted teeth. This could affect the way you bite and could damage your other teeth.

How will I look with dentures?

Replacing lost or missing teeth will enhance your chewing ability and your appearance. A denture replaces your natural teeth and gives support to your cheeks and lips. Dentures are made to match your wishes.

What about eating with dentures?

Eating with a new denture needs some practice. Initially eat softer foods cutting it into small pieces. With practice you will develop the skills to get back to your normal healthy diet.

What about speaking?

Again takes a bit of practice initially. With practice you will develop the skills and become accustomed to your new dentures.

Are there other choices besides dentures?

Yes Bridges and dental implants are other choices to consider. Ask your dental team for more information.
