A complete denture is a custom-made, removable dental prosthetic designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. It restores the appearance and oral functionalities that are lost along with the natural teeth.

Before delving deeper into the specifics of complete dentures, it’s crucial to understand the varied world of dentures. Each type caters to different needs, and the right choice depends on individual oral health conditions.

    Partial dentures fill the gaps left by lost or missing teeth and are held in place by clasps attached to the natural teeth.

    • Ideal for those who have some natural teeth remaining.
    • Fill in spaces created by missing teeth, preventing shifting and tilting of existing teeth.
    • Made from a combination of metal and acrylic.

    Immediate dentures are inserted immediately after the extraction of the natural teeth, providing the benefit of never having to be without teeth during the healing process.

  • Stage 1

    An initial set of impressions are taken using average fit stock impression trays

  • Stage 2

    Wax bite registration blocks are used to record the following

    • position of the jaws when biting
    • Smile line
    • Centre lines
    • Cheek support
    • Length of teeth

    Accurate second impressions are taken with a set of custom made impression trays which are specially designed to fit your mouth only.

    The Technician now has accurate models of your mouth and measurements that tell them where to place the teeth

  • Stage 3

    A wax “try in” is constructed. This is a mockup of your final dentures. The appearance and bite will be checked to ensure it is satisfactory before completion. This stage may need to be repeated if significant changes are required.

    If everything is ok the wax dentures, they’ll be made into acrylic dentures.

  • Stage 4

    Dentures are fitted and adjusted. They take some time to get used to wearing them.

    If there are any sore spots you may require these adjusting at your next appointment and if you do not have an appointment please get in touch to have these spots eased and adjusted.

    Don’t be tempted to adjust them at home, it is best if you leave the adjusting to us or you may take too much off and change the fit.

What our customers say about us

Hubert Kasinski
Hubert Kasinski
Great service, from Abul at the reception guiding me through the treatment plan and making sure I knew how to get there, where to park etc, to Dr Skidmore and Zoe with the treatment I had. Would recommend as it was better than my regular dentist. The root canal treatment price was also more reasonable than the specialist I was first recommended to by my usual dentist.
