We offers two distinct types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are utilized when all teeth are absent, while partial dentures are recommended for individuals with some remaining natural teeth. By employing advanced techniques, we excel in creating precise and comfortable cosmetic dentures.
When considering the available options for false teeth, complete dentures can be categorized as either “conventional” or “immediate.” Conventional dentures are fabricated after the teeth have been extracted and the gum tissue has undergone initial healing. They are typically ready for placement in the mouth within 8 to 12 weeks following tooth removal. In contrast, immediate dentures are pre-made and can be fitted immediately after tooth extraction, eliminating the need for the wearer to be without teeth during the healing phase.
However, it’s important to note that bones and gums tend to shrink over time, particularly in the weeks following tooth removal. This means that immediate dentures have a drawback compared to conventional dentures in London: they require more frequent adjustments (relines) to achieve a proper fit during the healing process. Generally, immediate dentures are considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made, taking into account the changes in bone and gum structure.
In the UK, removable partial dentures typically comprise replacement teeth affixed to an acrylic base that mimics the color of gums. These dentures are connected by a metal framework, providing stability and securing them in the mouth. Partial dentures are employed when there are remaining natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.
