A denture is a custom-made removable appliance which is worn to replace lost or missing teeth, to enable you to enjoy the foods you like and smile with confidence.
A denture replaces your natural teeth and also provides support for cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat freely and speak.
A good denture can improve chewing and eating activities, aid speech, enhance facial expression and raise self-confidence.
A complete denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth. A partial denture fills in the spaces created by a few lost or missing teeth and is sometimes attached to your natural teeth with clasps.
Partial dentures can be made from:
- Light alloy metal/acrylic combination
- Flexible acrylic like Valplast
They are partial dentures which adapts to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth, without visible metal clasps. Patients find that flexible partial dentures feel more natural and comfortable in the mouth, due to its thinness and lightweight, plus gives them more confidence when eating and smiling because of the excellent retention and aesthetics.
