We advise using dentures for when multiple teeth are missing or a lot of bone support has gone. Dentures are made by our skilled dental technicians and can be made out of solely plastic or a combination of metal and plastic to help with strength.
Dentures are removable for cleaning and we generally advise you remove them to sleep. The gums underneath the denture still need to be kept healthy so we advise patients to still attend regular dental check ups.
My wife Linda introduced me to Adams Dental and since that day I’ve never been afraid to visit the dentist. I was terrified of the dentist from childhood as I’m sure millions of people are but on my first visit they took all the fear away. Adams Dental treat you like you’re part of their family. My smile is a major part of my job and Alex made it easy for me to smile. I’ve recommended Adams Dental to many of my friends and now they’re recommending their friends too.
The fact that we have been patients of Alex Adams for 27 years should speak volumes for the respect we have for him. His easy ‘chair’ manner, the warmth of his personality and the patience he has in applying his dentistry skills all help to make our visits a more than pleasant one.
Alex and his team of dedicated professionals have looked after my family and myself for over 10 years. Their warm approach and advice instil confidence and their exemplary work helps you start any type of day with a winning smile!
Dentures are tailor-made to fit your mouth so they shouldn’t hurt although it may take some getting used to and you may feel slight discomfort for the first few months as your jaw bow and gums adjust to their new shape (if you had teeth extracted before getting your dentures fitted).
Dentures can last several years if well looked after. After a period of time we will need to take a new cast to make a new set of dentures as your jaw and gums gradually change shape as you get older. Our dentist will discuss all of this with you during your initial consultation.
We use the most cutting-edge technology to make our dentures resulting in a natural look. By taking precise measurements of your teeth and gums, we make sure the fit is perfect so you don’t need to worry about wobbly dentures.
Dentures can be removed for cleaning or you can clean your dentures as you would normal teeth, you just need to make sure you are gentle, particularly at first.
We recommend that you soak your dentures overnight in a fizzy dentures cleaning tablet to ensure any food particles are removed.
