What is a Denture?

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

At Barhill Dental Clinic we believe that wearing dentures should not prevent you from being confident by having a natural, healthy looking smile. We ensure that by working closely with our dental laboratory, and by only using high quality materials that we are able to create natural looking dentures that fit and work comfortably in your mouth.

Benefits

  • Dentures can make eating and speaking easier for you.
  • Dentures can improve the look of your face and smile.
  • Dentures can make you look more useful by supporting the muscles of the face.
  • Modern dentures are more comfortable and look more like natural teeth than previous technologies.

What is the procedure for getting your dentures made?

First of all, you will see your dentist for a thorough dental examination and they will discuss with you which denture type is best suited to you, taking into account your requirements and budget. A full costing will be provided to you at this point.

Once you are happy with proceeding, a series of impressions of your jaw will be taken using dental putty and measurements of how your jaw and how much space is between them will be taken. In certain cases we will make a laboratory made special tray to obtain a more accurate impression of your teeth.

We normally create a variety of models to ensure that the precise shape and position of your denture is more correctly for you. You will be asked to try this model several times and the denture will be assessed for colour, shape and fit before the final denture is cast.

A final denture will be tried and fitted. Adjustments will be made as necessary to ensure that the fit is comfortable for you.

Follow On Care

Just like having natural teeth, it is important to brush your dentures daily to remove food and plaque. Your Dentures need to be kept moist too when not being worn so they do not dry out or lose their shape.
