Dentures

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete dentures replace all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position. Complete dentures are either “conventional” or “immediate.”

A conventional denture is placed in the mouth about a month after all the teeth are removed to allow for proper healing, whereas an immediate denture is placed as soon as the teeth are removed. The drawback behind an immediate denture is that it may require more adjustments after the healing has taken place.

The cost of dentures depends on the overall dental treatment required and the type of dentures fitted. At your initial examination and after X-rays are taken of your mouth, our dentist will be able to better advise you on treatments, denture options, the associated costs involved, and our available payment plans to make your new teeth an affordable reality.

Here at Clockhouse Dental we work with some of the UKs leading denture technicians to ensure that we provide you with dentures that fit and feel comfortable.
