Removable Dentures


A denture is an appliance, which is worn to replace lost or missing natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. A full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.

A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. Partial dentures not only improve the appearance but also prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of line.

We will make sure that your dentures will:

  • Be of high quality
  • Restore the natural movements of the jaw and phonetics
  • Be compatible with sensitive tissues in the mouth ยท Be comfortable to wear, and be taken for granted during eating or speaking
  • And not at last, restore a smile to your face

It will take you several visits to us in order to be properly fitted with a denture. We will take several impressions of the gums, and send these to a dental lab, which uses these impressions to construct your dentures.

On the next appointments you and your dentist will check the dentures to ensure that your fit is correct and that the dentures meet your approval.
