Complete and partial dentures are some of the most widely used prostheses to replace missing teeth. Dentures are usually made from acrylic or a metal base with acrylic. The false teeth used in a denture can be selected from a wide range of shapes, sizes and colours to match your existing teeth or desired appearance.

Complete dentures are used to replace an entire upper or lower arch. In selected cases they can be supported by implants and retained by screws, providing excellent retention and stability. This type of prostheses is often more comfortable than traditional dentures.

Partial dentures are used to fill the spaces left by missing teeth to restore aesthetics and function. These dentures also prevent the remaining teeth in the arch from moving out of alignment. They are usually attached to the surrounding natural teeth by small clasps.

Dentures are custom made and fitted to your mouth and occlusion. The treatment period usually takes five to seven visits from the initial comprehensive assessment through to final completion, fitting and balancing of the denture. Both complete and partial dentures should remain stable at all times. If you notice your denture becomes loose or slips when you speak, cough or chew you may need to have the denture relined. You should schedule an appointment with the dentists at Dental Excellence at The Gap to discuss the options appropriate for your needs.
