Dentures are removable artificial appliances (false teeth), designed to replace one or more missing teeth for aesthetics and oral function. Dentures not only allow you to eat properly, but they assist in maintaining a great smile with the appearance of natural looking teeth. We use high quality teeth and acrylics from Germany to manufacture your dentures in our on-site dental laboratory.
When natural teeth are missing, dentures significantly help maintain the strength and structure of your facial muscles and overall facial profile. There are different types of dentures available, ranging from partial dentures, full dentures and implant dentures using materials such as acrylic, metal and flexible nylon. Some options may not be suitable for everyone as every patient’s mouth varies. During your free initial consultation with us, we will thoroughly explain the different alternatives available and discuss the treatment plan that best suites your individual denture needs.
Our experienced prosthetist will conduct a full assessment of your mouth to determine the shape, colour and size of teeth. This will ensure the overall ideal aesthetics, functionality, speech and jaw relationship. Our dental prosthetist will have an in-depth conversation with you to determine your denture goals and explain how we will achieve them. We are extremely sensitive to your concerns and will answer any questions regarding dentures that you may have.
False teeth do take some time to settle and regardless of the type of denture, it is not unusual to experience some discomfort in the beginning. In your consultation we will provide you with advice and suitable options to help restore your perfect smile.The aftercare of your dentures is an important step of the process, and we recommend following our instructions on how to maintain your dentures. Any necessary denture adjustments and denture repairs, including broken bases, teeth or clasps due to unseen accidents can be resolved by calling our clinic.

Dentures may replace all or only some of the teeth. The dentures that replace all the teeth are known as full or complete dentures and they rest on the gums that cover the jawbones.
Dentures that replace some but not all of the teeth are known as partial dentures. Partial dentures are a simple and affordable solution for replacing one or more missing teeth.Then there are immediate dentures that are inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal of natural teeth.
Finally, there are implant retained dentures also known as dental implants. Unlike conventional dentures, removable implant-retained dentures are supported by and attached to a minimum of two dental implants. Implant-retained dentures have special attachments which connect onto the implants secured in the mouth. Implant-retained dentures provide stability, increased chewing efficiency, retention and also eliminate the need for denture adhesives.
