Denture Treatment for Missing Teeth

Dentures are a versatile treatment for missing teeth. They can replace entire sets of teeth (this is called a complete or full denture) or a small number of teeth (this is known as a partial denture).

About dentures

In most cases, dentures are made from acrylic resin, which is bonded to metal. The denture is made up of a palate and a set of false teeth, which are designed to look like natural teeth. Over the years, dentures have evolved and modern dentures are very lifelike, as well as being comfortable, functional and light.

Dentures are custom-made so that they fit the contours and shape of the individual patient’s mouth. However, as the mouth is constantly changing shape, it is common for adjustments to be made every now and again to ensure a perfect fit.

Benefits of dentures

Dentures have numerous benefits. Firstly, they create an attractive, natural looking smile, which is particularly impressive if you have lost all or most of your natural teeth. Dentures enable you to smile with confidence and feel happy about the look of your smile.

Dentures also restore the function of the mouth. The teeth have a number of important roles and missing teeth can cause problems for speech, eating and aesthetics. Dentures enable you to eat the foods you love, speak clearly and they also provide support for your cheeks, which creates a more youthful and attractive facial aesthetic.

Caring for dentures

Just as you care for your natural teeth, you also have to care for dentures. We advise patients to remove their dentures at night to allow the gums to rest. At Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford, we recommend daily cleaning to ensure that the denture is clean and to reduce the risk of infection. We are happy to provide advice about denture cleaning and to recommend cleaning products. We advise you to clean your denture at least once a day using a soft-bristled brush and denture cleaning solution. It is best to clean your denture while standing over a sink full of water so that the denture will not break if you accidentally drop it. Always store your denture in a safe place and keep the denture moist when you are not wearing it by leaving it in lukewarm water.
