Keeping you smiling
Dentures from John Street Dental are most commonly made from acrylic resin, which is then bonded to a metal support base. This makes them strong and long-lasting.
Complete dentures are designed for our patients who have lost all or most of their natural teeth, while partial dentures are for our patients who still retain the majority of their natural teeth.
Dentures restore function, enabling you to eat normally, speak clearly and feel confident about the aesthetics of your smile. Dentures from John Street Dental also provide support for your cheeks and lips.
To ensure you receive the best possible fit for your dentures an impression mould of your natural remaining teeth as well as your gum line is made and used as a template. From these impressions your dentures are custom-made by a technician in a dental laboratory. This process will usually take around four weeks.
For many people, it can take a while to become familiar with wearing dentures. You may find that your speech is slightly affected and the dentures even feel a little odd. It is advisable to eat only soft food and liquids for a short period of time. When you are used to your new dentures you can go back to eating your favourite foods.
The John Street Dental team advise against wearing your denture overnight. Removing your denture allows the gums to rest and promotes improved oral health.
When you have been wearing dentures for a while it’s possible for the contour of your gums to change. Therefore it’s important to visit the John Street Dental team regularly to ensure your dentures still fit securely and any adjustments can be made.
While many people choose dentures to replace missing teeth, they are not the only option. Dental implants from John Street Dental are fast becoming a popular alternative for our patients with missing teeth, but they are not always suitable.
Our dental team can talk to you about all your options and offer more information about the treatment options that will best suit your needs and be beneficial to your oral health.
