A denture

Dentures

Dentures (often referred to as false teeth) are a set of false teeth that are used as a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. A denture can be taken out and easily put back in the mouth, and it looks just like the natural gums and teeth.

Types Of Dentures

There are two types of dentures that we offer at Dental Art Implant Clinics - Partial Dentures and Full Dentures. The selection of the suitable type of denture, highly depends on how many teeth a patient is missing.

  • What Are Partial Dentures?

  • Partial dentures are the best denture solution for patients who have most of their natural teeth left. The partial dentures are used to replace the missing teeth ensuring the function of a full, natural and comfortable smile.

  • What Are Full Dentures?

  • These types of dentures are used when the patient has lost all teeth or all of the existing natural teeth must be extracted. Our experts advise that it is better to try and keep as many natural teeth as possible to ensure better stability of the denture.

How Long Does Denture Treatment Last?

Usually, it takes around 8 weeks to be able to place dentures after your gum tissue has healed.

Are There Temporary Dentures Available?

I Don’t Want To Go Into Public Without Teeth.

If you do not want to wait, we can offer you Instant Dentures that can be inserted on the same day as your tooth (or teeth) extraction and can be used as temporary dentures until your Full Dentures are ready.

These dentures are applied right after the tooth (or teeth) extraction procedure providing protection to the gum tissues and reducing possible gum bleeding around the surgical site. This way you will not need to appear in public without teeth. 

  • What Do I Have To Do After Denture Treatment?

  • Dentures will require additional adjustments, so our experts will inform you when you must come for additional check-ups. 

  • When the healing process of your gums has been completed, your permanent dentures will be placed.

  • Afterwards, you can keep the spare denture, in case you lose the permanent one and are in a need of a temporary replacement.

  • Suggestions for Loose and Unstable Dentures

  • For greater stability please check or consult our experts about Dentures on Implants.

  • Implant supported dentures are securely attached to the jaws with the use of dental implants thus providing more stability to the dentures.

  • To find out more, please visit Dental Art Implant Clinics' website or contact us directly.

IT IS SAFE TO VISIT US!

Updated: 21st of January

Dear patients,

Everyone of us has had to give up something due to the Covid-19 global pandemic. Even such little things such as getting a haircut, lifting weights at the gym and other beauty and self-care activities are currently unavailable understandably. However, this is not the case for medical appointments.

According to the latest government guidelines, medical appointments – including visits to dental practices - are one of the few reasons you can leave your house, so we are encouraging everyone in need of dental treatment to book an appointment with us and not let your dental health suffer.

HOW IT WORKS? 

• Upon booking an appointment with us, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from our team.
• You can then use this e-mail confirmation of your appointment as proof of why you are outside, if needed.

HOW IS IT SAFE? 

• Our staff are equipped with additional PPE gear, to ensure as safe treatment procedures as possible.
• We have longer gaps between appointments to thoroughly clean and disinfect surgeries.
• We do a Covid-19 screening of each visiting patient before their appointment.
• Our waiting area is closed to ensure social distancing measures.
• Patients are asked to come only a few minutes prior to their appointment.
• We only let patients in the clinic as the appointment is about to begin.

We look forward to welcoming you to our clinics,
Stay safe and healthy.
