FP Dental takes pleasure in providing well-fitting dentures that will help you rediscover confidence and function in your smile.

Dentures are more frequent than most people realise. They are meant to be very discreet due to developments in dental technology.

A good denture lies comfortably over the gums. It substitutes dentition (teeth), easing issues such as difficulty eating and speaking, drifting of your remaining teeth, and face shrinking.

What types of dentures are available?

When it comes to dentures, there is a myriad of alternatives to choose from, and our skilled staff will lead you to the ones that are most suited to your needs. The following are the most common types of dentures that we use:

Full Dentures

When all of the teeth in the upper or lower arch of the mouth are missing, these can be replaced with full dentures. These restore the biting and chewing function as well as smile aesthetics.

Denture teeth are made from dental acrylic, but the base that they sit on maybe acrylic or cobalt chrome, depending on your budget.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are made of the same material as full dentures. The difference between the two is how many prosthetic teeth are used. If you still have natural teeth in place, a partial denture is used to fill the spaces left behind.

Immediate Dentures

If you’re having a tooth removed, you may be suitable for an immediate denture. Immediate dentures are used as a temporary measure so that you do not need to show missing teeth immediately after an extraction.

When teeth are extracted, it is normal for the remaining bone structure to shrink or change shape – particularly during the first six months. At this point, you will need the dentures to be relined or remade.

Chrome Dentures

Chrome partial dentures are constructed of cobalt and chromium alloy, making them a stronger dental material. They are more pleasant to wear than acrylic dentures and can be secured in place by clasps on the remaining teeth. Despite having a metal foundation, they have gum-coloured plastic and natural-looking teeth affixed to them. They are more expensive than plastic alternatives, but they are also more durable.

Implant retained dentures

A dental implant is used to firmly retain and support this type of denture. The acrylic denture clicks into place (much like a pop button) and is kept firmly, eliminating the risk of undesired movement. They are useful in lower dentures that are not maintained in place by suction.
