Your denture questions answered

What is a denture?

  • A denture is a artificial removable appliance or prostheses that is made to fit inside your mouth to replace your missing natural teeth.

  • Dentures will restore tooth function and aesthetics 

  • Full dentures replace all teeth in both upper and lower arches 

  • Partial dentures replace one or more of your missing teeth when you still have natural healthy teeth remaining

How does a denture actually work?

  • Dentures are skilfully designed and made to fit inside your mouth to replace the function of what your natural teeth did for you.

  • Every set of dentures is custom made to fit you and ensure you have a natural looking smile

  • Dentures will help you with your routine lifestyle activities such as eating and chewing, talking, laughing, and of course smiling

  • Dentures will keep you looking younger by supporting collapsed facial muscles from natural tooth removal

  • Dentures are the perfect solution when other dental treatments are not an option, such as implants and other cosmetic dentistry.

What are dentures made of?


  • Dentures are made of a number of different materials

  • These can include: acrylic which is a plastic, cobalt chromium or titanium which is a metal alloy or a thermoplastic material which is flexible.

  • All the materials are safe for use in the mouth

  • The type of material used for your dentures will depend on what type of denture is being made for you.

How important are dentures to my health?


  • The digestive system begins in the mouth.

  • Our teeth are part of that digestive system as well as our saliva which mixes which our food as we chew and helps dilute our gastric juices

  • If we don't have all our teeth or replace them with dentures it's extremely difficult to mix enough saliva with our food

  • This can increase the risk of digestive problems.
