Embrace a Confident Smile with Dentures

Dentures, also known as false teeth, offer a practical solution to replace missing teeth and restore the appearance of a natural smile. Whether caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or other factors, missing teeth can significantly impact one's ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. 

Partial dentures are recommended when some natural teeth remain, while full dentures is used when all teeth in one or both jaws are missing. Immediate dentures are provided on the same day teeth are removed. Implant-retained dentures offer added stability by anchoring dentures to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone.

If wearing dentures you should adhere to a regular oral hygiene routine. Regular dental check-ups are also crucial, ensuring optimal oral health and comfort. With proper care and attention, dentures can provide a solution for individuals with missing teeth, allowing you to enjoy a healthy mouth and confident smile.

Benefits of Dentures

Group 543.png (3) (1)-1

Dentures provide a practical solution for missing teeth, and help to regain the ability to chew. Whether it's partial dentures replacing some missing teeth or full dentures restoring an entire arch, dentures enable patients to enjoy a more varied and nutritious diet.

Missing teeth can affect speech clarity and pronunciation, leading to difficulties in communication. Dentures help fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, providing support to the lips, tongue, and facial muscles. This support aids in clearer speech and improved articulation.

Dental prosthetists craft dentures for proper alignment with the natural gum tissues and remaining teeth, if any. This customised fit minimizes the risk of irritation or sore spots on the gums.

Dentures offer versatility in addressing various degrees of tooth loss and oral health needs. Options such as immediate dentures provide a quick solution for patients who need immediate tooth replacement following extractions.

Compared to dental implants, dentures offer a more cost-effective option for replacing missing teeth. Dentures provide a non-invasive and affordable alternative for restoring oral function. Regular visits to the dentist for adjustments and care ensure longevity and optimal performance.

Types of Dentures

Dentures offer a versatile solution to various dental needs, catering to individuals. Understanding the different types of dentures available empowers individuals to make informed decisions about their oral care, ensuring optimal comfort, functionality, and confidence in their smiles.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are utilised when all teeth are missing in either the upper or lower jaw. These dentures are custom-made to fit the unique contours of the patient's mouth, providing a natural-looking replacement for a full set of teeth. Complete dentures enhance oral function, restore facial aesthetics, and promote confidence in daily activities.

Group (25)

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are designed for individuals who have some natural teeth remaining. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base, which is supported by metal clasps or precision attachments that anchor to the existing teeth. Partial dentures prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, restore chewing ability, and improve speech clarity.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures offer a stable and secure solution for individuals with insufficient bone structure to support traditional dentures. These dentures are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone, providing unparalleled stability and comfort. Implant-supported dentures mimic the natural function of teeth, preventing bone loss and enhancing overall oral health.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are fabricated in advance and inserted immediately after tooth extraction. These temporary dentures allow patients to maintain their appearance and function while their gums heal and permanent dentures are being made. Immediate dentures provide immediate aesthetic improvement and assist in the transition to permanent dentures.

Group (26)


Overdentures are designed to fit over natural teeth roots or dental implants. These dentures preserve the remaining natural teeth and underlying bone structure, promoting long-term oral health. Overdentures offer improved stability and retention compared to traditional dentures, enhancing comfort and chewing efficiency.

Group 635

Snap-In Dentures

Snap-in dentures, also known as implant-retained or removable overdentures, combine the stability of implant-supported dentures with the convenience of removable dentures. These dentures snap onto dental implants or attachments, providing enhanced stability during chewing and speaking. Snap-in dentures offer flexibility and ease of maintenance, allowing for effortless cleaning and adjustment.

Blending Dentures With Natural Teeth

From handling dentures with care to ensuring proper oral hygiene, this guide offers essential tips and precautions for denture wearers to maintain optimal oral health and comfort. 


  • Regular dental check-ups to ensure proper fit and maintain overall oral health.
  • Proper denture care involves cleaning your dentures daily to remove food particles, plaque, and bacteria. Rinse them thoroughly before wearing them again.
  • Brush teeth, gums, and tongue twice daily with a soft toothbrush. This helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath.
  • Handle your dentures with care to avoid dropping or damaging them.
  • Overnight soaking dentures keep them clean and free from bacteria. Use a denture cleanser or mild soap solution to soak your dentures overnight.


  • Refrain from chewing gum or sticky foods that can damage or dislodge your dentures.
  • It's important to remove dentures before bedtime. Always remember to remove and soak your dentures in a denture cleanser overnight.
  • Use a denture-specific cleanser and a soft-bristled brush to clean dentures effectively without causing harm.
  • Schedule an appointment with a dentist or dental prosthetist for professional adjustments and resist doing it yourself.
  • Ill-fitting dentures can cause irritation, sores, and even bone loss. Schedule an appointment with your dentist for a denture fitting assessment.

The Process of Obtaining Dentures

Frame 44634
Initial Consultation

The process begins with an initial consultation with a dentist or prosthodontist. During this visit, the oral health professional assesses the patient's oral condition, discusses treatment options, and addresses any concerns or questions the patient may have.

Layer 2 (1)
Dental Impressions

Once the decision is made to proceed with dentures, dental impressions of the patient's mouth are taken. These impressions serve as the foundation for creating custom-fitted dentures that will snugly adhere to the contours of the gums.

Trial Fitting

After the impressions are taken, the patient may undergo a trial fitting with temporary dentures or wax models. This allows the patient to assess the fit, appearance, and comfort of the dentures before the final product is fabricated.

Based on the impressions and trial fitting results, the final dentures are fabricated in a dental laboratory. Skilled technicians use high-quality materials to create dentures that closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and function.

Final Fitting

Once the dentures are ready, the patient returns to the dental office for the final fitting. The dentist or prosthodontist ensures that the dentures fit comfortably and securely, making any necessary adjustments to achieve the perfect fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Explore common queries about Dentures

If you have had your dentures for a while and they have become loose, it can affect the way you smile, speak and chew.

  • It might be time for a denture reline - This involves adding material to the fitting surface of the denture to improve its fit
  • Consider denture replacement - Over time as dentures wear and lose their shape and fit, you might experience discomfort and decreased functionality. Our dentists and prosthetist can assess the condition of your dentures and discuss whether a replacement is necessary.
  • Explore implant retained dentures - loose or unstable dentures can cause a lot of frustration and self-consciousness in social situations. With the addition of two dental implants, dentures can be "clipped on" to these implants for optimal stability and comfort. Implant dentures are removable to allow cleansibility and provide stability and support for the dentures, preventing it from slipping and shifting when you speak and eat.
  • Full arch implants or All-on-4 - eliminate dentures entirely by replacing them with permanent implant-supported teeth. We provide fixed implant prostheses that are non-removable. This means there are no denture extensions or plates covering the roof of your mouth. In most cases, this procedure can be completed in a single session under sedation, offering immediate results with a full arch of artificial teeth anchored with total security


The lifespan of dentures can vary depending on factors such as the quality of materials used, your oral hygiene habits, and changes in the shape of your jawbone over time. On average, dentures may need to be replaced every 5-7 years to maintain proper fit and function.

It may take some time to adjust to wearing dentures, especially if you are new to wearing them. Initially, you may experience some discomfort, difficulty speaking, and changes in eating habits. However, with time and practice, most patients adapt to wearing dentures within a few weeks to a few months.
