A denture is a removable prosthesis which is used to replace some or all the teeth either on a permanent basis or on a temporary basis, whilst awaiting implants. A good set of dentures helps you to eat and often can improve the appearance.
After your initial consultation, we can discuss with you in detail the length of time, number of appointments and the procedures that will be involved in order to fabricate your new dentures. The dentists at ABC Dental Surgery are highly trained and skilled in the art of making dentures. In addition, we use laboratories who we have built up a professional relationship with and who we trust to do an excellent job in making up the dentures.
It can take several days or weeks to get used to wearing dentures. It may take longer if you are a first-time denture wearer. Eating will require practice and it is advisable to start with soft food cut into small pieces. New dentures may also alter the speech and pronouncing certain words will require practice. We will be best placed to advise you on the difficulties you might face following a detailed consultation and evaluation.
