Removable Dentures

What are they?

Dentures can be full for the replacement of all the teeth or partial replacing only a few teeth. Dentures are usually made of an acrylic or combination of acrylic and metal depending upon the situation.

Procedure

It takes usually three or four appointments to make dentures.

Impressions are taken to make models of the mouth. Then wax rims are made to register the jaw relationship. The next stage is to try the dentures in wax only. If this is successful, then the dentures are made in the finished acrylic material.

Benefits

Dentures do take time to get used to but invariably give good service for many years.
