Dentures

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two main types of dentures known as full and partial dentures. After a thorough examination and understanding the necessary requirement, the dentist will select the most suitable type of denture to your mouth.

The process of creating dentures requires minor tooth modifications to ensure perfect fit and comfort. Prior to the placement of full or partial dentures, the dentist takes an impression of the mouth allowing precise and accurate construction.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete dentures replaces all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position.
Complete dentures are either conventional or immediate.

A conventional denture is placed in the mouth about a month after all the teeth are removed to allow the proper healing, whereas an immediate denture is placed as soon as the teeth are removed.

The drawback behind an immediate denture is that it may require more adjustments after healing has taken place.

Removable Partial Dentures are for patients who are missing SOME of their teeth on a particular arch. Complete Dentures or full dentures are worn by patients who are missing ALL of the teeth in a single arch (i.e the maxillary (upper) or mandibular (lower) arch).

Full Dentures

Full dentures are put in place when the patient requires a replacement for the entire set of natural teeth. Therefore, full dentures will replace all of the upper, lower or both sets of teeth. Full dentures can be conventional or immediate. Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as removal of teeth. Conventional dentures are ready for placement after three months in removing the teeth or less with periodic laboratory adjustments.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are necessary to replace some of the natural teeth, therefore in conjunction with the rest. Partial dentures improve the appearance and function of the teeth. Further, prevents the remaining teeth from changing positions. These types of dentures consist of replaced teeth attached to a gum colour plastic base.

How do I take care of my dentures?

Dentures are very delicate and may break if dropped even a few inches. The first step in cleaning dentures is to rinse away loose food particles thoroughly. Moisten the brush and apply denture cleanser. Brush every surface, scrubbing gently to avoid damage.

Like natural teeth, dentures must be brushed daily to remove food deposits and plaque. Brushing helps prevent dentures from becoming permanently stained and helps your mouth stay healthy. It’s best to use a brush designed for cleaning dentures. A toothbrush with soft bristles can also be used. Avoid using hard-bristled brushes that can damage dentures.

Dentures may lose their shape if they are allowed to dry out. When they are not worn, dentures should be placed in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in water. Your dentist can recommend the best method. Never place dentures in hot water, which could cause them to warp.

I have had a fantastic experience with Ferry Dental.I approached them as an anxious patient (having not been to the dentist for nearly a decade) and the staff were so friendly and calming. Despite having a big cry before my first appointment my consultation was fantastic and I left feeling much more comfortable with the prospect of going to the dentist.Since then I’ve had many appointments with Marwa (orthodontist) and the hygienist and no longer dread or cry before appointments. Marwa in particular is so kind and friendly and always checks in with me throughout appointments to make sure I’m calm and happy.All the staff have been so friendly and know who I am and have been fully informed of my anxiety. It’s been very relieving to go from appointment to appointment and each practitioner knows exactly who I am, what I’ve had done, and really look after me as an individual.Also a massive shout out to the reception team (particularly Anna) who are always so so friendly and greet me by name and know who I am.I highly recommend this dentist - particularly those who hate going to the dentist and/or suffer from anxiety. A massive thank you to Ferry Dental for helping me get over my fear of the dentist ❤️
