Dentures

A denture is a removable device which can be used to replace one, several or even all of your teeth. They are most commonly known as ‘false teeth’.

Dentures have been used successfully for many years as a way of returning look and function to the mouth. They can also make a significant impact on the overall appearance of your face by supporting facial features such as the cheeks and lips.

Dentures are normally removable but can be fixed with denture implants.

A partial denture is used to replace some of the teeth while a full denture will replace all of them.

Some people have struggled with uncomfortable or unattractive dentures in the past and this can be off putting. Do bear in mind that modern dentures are very natural looking. They fit much more securely and comfortably and are made from high quality materials meaning that you can feel confident and assured when eating, talking and smiling.

How is a denture made?

The manufacture of a denture can be a lengthy process- with several appointments required in order to make sure your denture fits as well as it possibly can.

The process normally takes around 4-6 weeks from start to finish with a period of around a week between appointments.

1) Initial consultation to check your existing teeth and gums and produce a detailed treatment plan.
2) Impressions, photographs and X-rays of your mouth will be taken and used to make a wax model of your dentures.
3) The wax model will be checked for fit and comfort. Once you are completely happy it will be used to produce your final denture.
4) You will attend a final fitting appointment
5) Check-up appointment (around 1 week later)

What will it look like?

Your denture will be made from a gum coloured plastic arch with tooth coloured crowns attached as required. A partial denture will have small metal hooks so that it can be anchored in place by your existing teeth. A full denture will fit similarly to a removable brace. A denture adhesive shouldn’t be required if the denture fits correctly.

If required, and your gums are healthy enough, dentures can also be fixed with implants for a more secure fit.

What will my dentures feel like?

It can take some time to get used to your new dentures- particularly if you’ve had several missing teeth for a while. You will not only notice a change in the function of your mouth but the way you look too.

  • Initially you may find it strange when eating- starting with a softer diet and introducing other food items overtime will help.
  • If your speech is affected then practice talking when you are alone –repeating more difficult words or perhaps reading aloud to yourself.
  • If your dentures rub or feel sore they may need adjusting- please contact us at the earliest opportunity.

Looking after your dentures:

With good care and attention dentures can last for many years. Here are some tips to help keep your dentures clean and functional:

  • Dentures should be removed at night (unless advised otherwise) so that they can be cleaned and your gums can rest.
  • Brush your denture with a soft toothbrush or a special denture brush. Never use normal toothpaste- special denture cream is available.
  • Make sure you keep your denture wet otherwise it will dry out and could change shape. It should be stored overnight in water containing a denture cleaning tablet to help remove any stains.
  • If you do have any remaining teeth then make sure you brush these- as well as your gums- to make sure they stay healthy too.
  • Ensure you attend regular dental check-ups to maintain the health of your mouth and ensure that your denture always fits comfortably and securely.

If you do have any problems at all with your dentures, including pain, if they start to feel loose or make strange noises (such as clicking) then please get in contact straight away.

Excellent ( Again ) . I cannot rate Allesley Park Dental Practise highly enough :Pre appointment communication is excellent . Reception Staff polite & efficient on phone & in person . Their covid precautions & system work really well & I always feel safe & protected whilst on the premises.Jassan is the Dentist I normally see - she is a wonderful Dentist , always polite , cheerful , efficient & welcoming , remembering to ask about things in my life that I have mentioned to her in polite chat before previous surgery. My teeth are extremely sensitive & Jassan is very sympathetic to this whilst working , which is so reassuring.My last appointment left me even more impressed with APDP as Jassan & her Assistant had to wear respirators , visors & hair coverings to perform dental work . This must have been very uncomfortable but they both just took it in their stride . It was impressive how Jassan performed such intricate work so skillfully whilst having to wear all that PPE .Whilst on holiday recently , APDP Staff arranged for an antibiotic prescription for an infected wisdom tooth , to be promptly sent to the town I was staying in. The subsequent extraction of this awkward tooth was arranged by APDP at another Dental Surgery near my home & it all went well.Thank you again all at APDP , we are lucky to have such a good Dental Practise . The covid crisis illustratedhow vital our Dental services are to us.Addition to my previous review : I recently broke an old filling during the evening .I emailed APDP & at 08.30 the next morning a member of Admin Staff phoned me up & arranged an emergency appointment within 36 hours , which was really impressive .On arrival , the covid precautions were extremely thorough again .Jassan checked my tooth & put a temporary filling in swiftly & efficiently .On paying for my treatment I was pleased to be told I could have a cancellation slot for the permanent filling within 72 hours .Again , on both treatment visits , I was so impressed by Jassan`s Dentistry & Customer service skills & with the efficiency , politeness & safe practices of all at APDP.Thank you all again , having a superb Dental Practice is a real blessing , especially in these troubled times.

They have done a good job in managing their response to Covid and I've had two checkups when many of my friends have been struggling to see a dentist at all. Alex is really good at understanding what I need and Sarah is great too.

I have been at this practice for years - I followed Mr Douglas Price when he left Warwick University Health Centre. He is brilliant and his son seems to have inherited his skills (I've seen Alex the last two visits). The clinic is immaculate and the staff are polite and efficient and friendly. Their handling of patients during Covid is excellent. Never get to see Barbara now but she's a star. I travel from Kenilworth and it's worth it.

Thanks to all at Allesley Park Dental Practice who made my recent visit as near to normal as possible during these times of Covid19 restrictions. It was good to get the form-filling out of the way before the appointments, and all the staff I spoke to were welcoming and friendly although they must have had much more to do behind the scenes and between appointments than in normal times.

I have been coming to the practice for 30+ years and now so do my wife, children and mum. We see Douglas (father) or Alex (son) and they are both outstanding dentists, I have absolute confidence in their work and they are patient with me as I have a dread of dentists ! I like that they will explain what I they are doing and let me know my options. I also like that they just do what’s needed. All the dental nurses are also lovely, it’s nice many know me by name. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
