We advise using dentures for when multiple teeth are missing or a lot of bone support has gone. Dentures are made by our skilled dental technicians and can be made out of solely plastic or a combination of metal and plastic to help with strength.
Dentures are removable for cleaning and we generally advise you remove them to sleep. The gums underneath the denture still need to be kept healthy so we advise patients to still attend regular dental check ups.
I saw Dr Meriam Khawam for replacement of missing filling of one of my molars. Her administration of the local anaesthetic and the rest of the work was outstanding. She did not forget to examine and give me advice on my gum health which so many dentists overlook. Overall my experience was very positive.
I visited Dr Ankit Patel for ongoing issues with my sensitive teeth. I was extremely nervous and worried as I don’t visit the dentist often, but Dr Patel ensured I was comfortable throughout and explained the treatment in detail which put me at ease. Overall great service and really friendly staff.
First consultation went beyond all my expectations. Dr Meriam was not only pleasant but extremely professional and had answers and advice for all my points of discussion. No treatment done on this date but an overall assessment and I left the practice feeling I was in good hands.
Dentures are tailor-made to fit your mouth so they shouldn’t hurt although it may take some getting used to and you may feel slight discomfort for the first few months as your jaw bow and gums adjust to their new shape (if you had teeth extracted before getting your dentures fitted).
Dentures can last several years if well looked after. After a period of time we will need to take a new cast to make a new set of dentures as your jaw and gums gradually change shape as you get older. Our dentist will discuss all of this with you during your initial consultation.
We use the most cutting-edge technology to make our dentures resulting in a natural look. By taking precise measurements of your teeth and gums, we make sure the fit is perfect so you don’t need to worry about wobbly dentures.
Dentures can be removed for cleaning or you can clean your dentures as you would normal teeth, you just need to make sure you are gentle, particularly at first.
We recommend that you soak your dentures overnight in a fizzy dentures cleaning tablet to ensure any food particles are removed.
