Getting your smile back in shape is easy with dentures!
Dentures have come a long way over the years and now we can fit them to suit your lifestyle.
Modern techniques can now provide dentures that are secured in place with dental implants to provide better stability.
Dentures or “false teeth” are a way of replacing missing teeth. They are made of acrylic resin or metal and acrylic. Dentures are not fixed in position and are removable from the mouth for cleaning.
Should you require some or all of your natural teeth to be removed, you’ll need immediate dentures. Your dentist will work with you and the clinical dental technician to deliver an immediate denture.
How it works:
Take an impression of your mouth
Remove your tooth/teeth and fit denture right then and there
Review healing process during the first week
After 3 to 6 months your dentures are adjusted
After 6 to 12 months your dentures are re-lined
To ensure that your dentures offer good support for your cheeks and lips and continue to fit well, you may need to replace your dentures every eight to ten years. If your dentures seem to be uncomfortable, worn or broken please get in contact with our team at Ormonde Dental Centre to book an appointment.
Relining your Dentures
As your mouth gradually changes shape over time, you may notice that your dentures no longer fit as well as they used to. If your dentures are less than four years old, they can be re-lined. This is a simple procedure that can usually be carried out by your dentist on the same day and will get you smiling again.
