Still one of the most popular options for replacing teeth, false teeth or dentures one of our most used services. We offer a wide range of dentures at our emergency dental clinic in London. With flexible finance options to suit every pocket we can also provide same day dentures in the case of an emergency.
Dentures are the oldest method of replacing teeth that are missing and have been used for many centuries. Although there are more high-tech options available dentures remain the most popular method of replacing missing teeth.
Modern dentistry has many different types of dentures available and these are the ones that are most commonly used
Acrylic is one of the oldest tried and tested materials that are utilised in the making of dentures.
This type of denture is generally very comfortable to wear and is the most easily tolerated. Strength is produced by the production of a metal skeleton that's usually made of chrome and cobalt with plastic gums and teeth built onto the metal structure. They are sometimes used for making a full denture but they are particularly ideal for the production of partial dentures meaning that they can accommodate any teeth that are still in the jaw. With this kind of denture the plastic used would often be acrylic and if acrylic is used then metal clasps will also be used. Nylon could also be used and that has the advantage of having more flexibility compared to acrylic plastics. Dentures that feature nylon are called flexi dentures and will not contain any metal clasps so that they are the most aesthetically pleasing.
A type of plastic with flexibility this denture has the give that an acrylic denture would not offer. Where the aim is to replace a few missing teeth especially at the front, this is a very good option. These dentures will be comfortable and do not always use metal clasps.
That will depend on what type of denture you go for, what it is made of and the skill and experience of the professional who is producing it. See our prices page for a guide.
Most people will get used to it but there is no doubt that some people find that they cannot tolerate a foreign body in the mouth. The material the denture is made of and the sensitivity of the mouth all play a part. Talk to one of our dentists for more information.
