Dentures, Acrylic or Metal
Either full or partial dentures may be provided.
A complete full denture takes approximately five appointments. The first 2 appointments involve a preliminary impression, and a second more accurate impression. A record of the bite is taken, and the final position of the teeth decided. Tooth mould (ie, size and shape), and size are selected. A try-in stage of the denture in wax allows the final prosthesis to be ‘test driven’, and any desired alterations are easily made at this stage. At the final appointment the finished denture is delivered to the patient.
Denture hygiene instructions are given and following these helps to keep the soft tissues of the mouth healthy.
