What are Dentures?
Dentures are use to replace missing teeth.
Partial acrylic dentures
These dentures are used to fill in the spaces of missing teeth you may have. Clasps are generally used on some of the remaining teeth to anchor the denture in.
Full acrylic dentures
Full dentures are offered when the patient has no more teeth in the Upper/ Lower arch. We do like our dentures to look as natural as possible so we always suite the tooth style and shape to your face.
Partial metal dentures
Partial metal dentures are used the same as Acrylic dentures. Because of the strength of the metal being used across the palette or the lower section of the mouth the metal can be made thinner than the typical acrylic and patients state they are more comfortable and a lot more stronger.
Immediate dentures are used when the person is having and extraction and doesn’t want to leave the practice without a tooth in its place.
This can be done by either setting up a new partial denture with the replacement tooth or have an extra tooth placed on you current partial denture.
Orthodontics & Removable appliances
Orthodontics and removable appliances are used to correct such things as crooked, crowded and misaligned teeth and bites. Orthodontics is not just for aesthetical use but they can also have a huge impact in helping correcting Jaw issues that can cause lifelong discomfort.
