The benefits

If you have lost some teeth, dentures can improve the way you look, bite, chew and speak.

They are custom-made to match your mouth and can be made to look as natural as possible.

The teeth that are left are protected from wear and tear.  Without dentures, the natural teeth may move or tilt, stopping your teeth biting together properly.

Dentures can be fitted immediately after teeth have been taken out so that nobody will know that you have had a tooth out.  These are called immediate dentures.  Immediate dentures are temporary and used if you are in a situation where you are going to lose a tooth but it is unacceptable for you to have a gap for any length of time.  These types of dentures are designed to last up to six months whilst your gums heal and reshape.  You will then need a new denture or even a bridge to replace the immediate denture.  They are quite literally a stop gap.

Dentures will never feel like your own teeth and it can take time to get used to them.  If you haven’t had a denture before, your dentist will want to explain the difficulties of wearing dentures, as well as the benefits and how you should take care of your new dentures and the teeth you have left.
