Dentures Treatment in Hayes | Hayes Dental Clinic

Dentures are a trusted and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are removable plastic or metal frameworks that carry single or multiple false teeth. If you choose to replace missing teeth with dentures, they will be custom made to fit the size and shape of your mouth, making them feel and look as natural as possible.

Dentures are removable, they’re not a permanent, fixed solution to missing teeth. Getting used to them will take time, and they may feel a bit uncomfortable to start with. Your dentist may schedule a check-up appointment a week after fitting your new dentures to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Your dentures should start to feel more secure as you get used to them.

Generally, dentists advise against wearing dentures at night. But your dentist may suggest that you wear them night and day for the first week or two, to help you get used to them.

You may find some words difficult to pronounce at first, but this usually improves with time. Try reading out loud to practice.

It can take a while to get used to eating with new dentures, so it’s best to start with soft food. Try to use both sides of your mouth at the same time. This will help to keep your dentures in place.

Alternatives to removable dentures include:

  • Bridges – false teeth that are fixed onto existing natural teeth
  • Dental implants – false teeth fitted on top of a titanium implant that is fixed directly into your jawbone
Chrome dentures vs. Acrylic dentures

Two common types of denture material are chrome dentures (metal) and acrylic (plastic) dentures.

Chrome dentures
  • Chrome dentures have the look of traditional dentures, with a metal framework in the palate that holds the false teeth in place.
  • They are designed to be well hidden inside the mouth, and some people prefer the feel of chrome dentures as the framework can be lighter and less bulky.
  • Metal dentures can also be stronger, giving excellent value for money over the long term, as well as having good oral hygiene properties.
  • Chrome can be used for the framework of both partial dentures and full dentures and may mean less of the roof of your mouth is covered.
Acrylic dentures
  • Acrylic is a kind of plastic and can be coloured to match the pink of your gums, further reducing the likelihood that anyone will notice you are wearing dentures.
  • Acrylic dentures can be moulded to the shape of your gums and may be held in place with a suitable denture fixative.
  • Both the palate and the denture teeth can be made of varying forms of acrylic, and these materials are used throughout our range from essential dentures right up to the high impact acrylic base on our elite dentures.
  • It’s a modern performance material, hard-wearing and comfortable, and it allows extremely natural-looking false teeth to be sculpted to give you a smile that really feels like your own.
