If you have a few or all of your teeth missing, one solution is to have a denture. A denture is made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give you mouth a natural appearance. Your denture will be made to fit snugly to your gums and you will be able to remove it for cleaning.
When you wear a denture for the first time it may take some getting used to when speaking, eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care in your hygiene regime so you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Our hygienist will be able to show you the best way to take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this.
About chrome dentures
Made from cast metal, chrome dentures are considered to be best suited as permanent partial dentures. This is because they are incredibly strong and do not irritate the mouth. Unlike the plastic partial dentures that are clipped onto natural teeth, chrome dentures actually rest on the teeth for a stronger and more comfortable hold.
Chrome dentures are far superior to plastic dentures because your bite will be stronger and you will have greater chewing forces when you eat, meaning you’ll experience healthier gums. With chrome dentures there is less material covering your mouth’s soft tissue, meaning you’ll be able to taste food better and enjoy what you eat.
