Dentures are custom-made replacements for missing teeth and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as natural teeth, today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
We are able to advise you on the replacement of missing teeth with removable dentures. We specialise in all types of conventional dentures, including full upper and lower dentures; ‘immediate’ dentures; removable partial dentures using plastic, metal or flexible Valplast, as well as denture repairs.
Implant Supported Dentures
This procedure is the stablisation of dentures by components that connects to the implants by means of locator abutments.
Here at Richmond Dental Centre will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
Top Oral Care Tips for Dentures
- Don't let dentures dry out – place them in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in plain water when you're not wearing them. Never use hot water, which can cause dentures to warp.
- Brush your dentures – brushing dentures daily will remove food and dental plaque, and help prevent them from becoming stained.
- Take care of your mouth – brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert dentures. This stimulates circulation in your tissues and helps remove plaque.
- Talk to your dentist if dentures break, chip, crack or become loose. Don't be tempted to adjust them yourself — this can damage them beyond repair.
