A denture is a removable appliance used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dentures are designed to fit over the gums, eliminating problems that can be caused by missing teeth. Blue House Dental can supply you with full dentures to replace all your upper or lower teeth, or with partial dentures to replace one or more missing teeth. We use high quality materials, including lifelike gum coloured acrylic bases and the very latest denture teeth to give a natural appearance.

Full or Complete Dentures

You will need a full or complete denture if all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw have been extracted. If you are due to have all your teeth taken out, then we will almost certainly provide you with a temporary or immediate denture that is fabricated before your appointment, and which is worn immediately after the teeth have been taken out. This will need to be left in place until the gums have fully healed, and is likely to need some adjustments during this time. Once your gums have fully healed then we can begin fitting you for a new full denture.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth, and have metal clasps that fit around existing teeth to hold them in position. Alternatively they may have precision metal attachments that fit into dental crowns, holding the denture very securely. Partial dentures usually require adjacent teeth to be adapted, to either hold the clasps or to be crowned for precision attachments.

The Procedure for Fitting Dentures

It is necessary to visit Blue House Dental several times during the making and fitting of your dentures and you will get to preview them in a wax ‘try in’ stage. This is where the actual denture teeth are put onto a pink wax base, showing how the denture looks and feel, and it is easy to make any adjustments before the wax is replaced with acrylic. Once they have been fitted, please allow plenty of time to get used to them. New dentures can require several adjustments to ensure they fit securely and comfortably.
