If you have lost all or many of your teeth, you are likely to be embarrassed about smiling. Losing multiple teeth can cause more than just aesthetic problems; gaps left by missing teeth can affect your ability to bite and chew food, taking many things off the menu, while missing teeth can also affect your speech.
Any remaining teeth surrounding a gap can also start to grow at an angle as they attempt to move into the space, making them difficult to clean and further affecting your bite.
A popular solution to missing teeth is dentures. There are two types of denture available: partial dentures and full dentures.
Partial dentures can be used to replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth. Sometimes all teeth need to be removed and replaced, in which case you will need full dentures.
Dentures will help to give you your confidence back in your smile, and will mean you can return to eating a wide range of foods. If you have lost all of your teeth or they all need to be removed, complete dentures will also fill out your face to prevent a saggy look. A denture has the advantages of being relatively inexpensive, quick to make and not requiring any surgery or drilling of nearby teeth.
All of our dentists are trained to provide both partial and full dentures.
