Full and Partial Dentures

Denture Clinic in Milton Keynes

A denture is an appliance that is worn to replace lost or missing teeth to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence.

A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. When you loose a number of teeth, your face can look ‘sunken’ and you may appear older than you are. A complete denture not only replaces the natural teeth but also helps to support the cheeks and lips.

What is a Denture?

A denture is made from hard-wearing material, either acrylic (plastic) or metal, that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give you mouth a natural appearance. Your denture will be made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove it for cleaning.

A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.

It is also possible to fit dentures onto dental implants, improving their stability and increasing your confidence.

Eating with dentures can take some getting used to, but it should not be overly difficult. It may take some time to adjust to the feel of dentures in your mouth and to learn how to bite and chew properly. 

Some people may experience difficulty with certain types of food, such as sticky or hard foods, but this can usually be overcome with practice.

Dental bridges last from 5 to 15 years or even longer with good oral hygiene and regular checkups.

Dentures may affect your speech to some degree, but with time and practice, most people are able to speak clearly with dentures. 

Initially, you may have trouble pronouncing certain words or making certain sounds, but your brain and mouth will adjust to the new sensations.
