Dentures are removable false teeth attached to a plastic called acrylic, or metal called cobalt. Dentures are designed to provide you with a natural smile and will also keep your face from sagging.
Not all dentures are the same and here at Coastal Dental Care, we measure your mouth ensuring you have a set of dentures made to closely resemble your natural teeth, so that little change in appearance will be noticeable.
Dentures will improve the look of your smile and help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. Dentures improve chewing ability and speech while providing support for facial muscles.
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. The team at Coastal Dental Care will work with you to determine the best form of denture treatment for your individual needs.
Full or complete dentures are most popular with patients looking to replace an entire set of teeth, this could be the top arch, bottom arch or in some cases both. A higher number of patients receiving full dentures may require their last few teeth be removed prior to treatment commencing, this will promote good oral health. In these cases a short healing time will be required, this is typically around three months and will allow the gums to fully heal.
Patients who are only suffering from the loss of a small number of teeth and don’t require a full arch of new teeth, have the option of partial dentures. For patients with one or more fully functioning natural teeth, partial dentures offer a solution for filling gaps, whilst allowing healthy natural teeth to remain.
