What are dentures?
Dentures at Marylebone Dental Centre
Depending on whether a few or a large proportion of your teeth are going to be replaced, you may require a partial or full set of dentures.
A full set of dentures comprises of a pink flesh-coloured base that fits perfectly over your gums and roof of your mouth for the upper denture and your gums and jawbone for the lower part of your mouth, leaving space to accommodate your tongue.
Partial dentures replace just one tooth or a few missing teeth and fit securely in a section of your mouth.
Previously, dentures were widely known for not being very comfortable. However, with the development of modern materials and techniques, custom made dentures can fit perfectly in your mouth giving you an extremely natural appearance, while providing a very practical and functional solution for your missing teeth.
Like your natural teeth, dentures need good care. Your dentist at Marylebone Dental Care will explain the proper aftercare needed to ensure you will live confidently with your dentures.
As with other prostheses, they do require regular maintenance. Dentures can last several year, but it is important to visit your dentist regularly so they can check for any problems. Your dentures may need to be relined, remade, or rebased over time due to normal wear.
If you already have denture and find them uncomfortable or your dentures no longer fit like they used to, please contact us at Marylebone Dental Care.
