Dental Dentures in Dartford


As with bridges and dental implants, dentures are used to replace missing teeth. They were commonly called ‘false teeth’ – which is effectively what they are – but are nowadays referred to more correctly as dentures. Unlike a bridge or implants, dentures are removable.

There are two types of dentures. Full (or complete) dentures for when all teeth are missing and partial dentures when you still have some natural teeth.

Dentures may comprise metal or acrylic false teeth. The former are generally stronger and longer lasting while the latter have the advantage of being tooth coloured.

Both full and partial dentures are specially made in a dental laboratory so at the first visit we will take impressions and prepare your mouth for the denture. If teeth have been removed, gum tissue needs to heal so it may be several weeks before the denture can be worn.

We always check that the denture fits correctly and is comfortable. We also give you advice on caring for your denture.

Here is how it works:

If you have a few or all of your teeth missing, one solution is to have a denture.

  1. A denture is made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give your mouth a natural appearance.
  2. After impressions are taken, a denture is designed in a dental laboratory.
  3. Dentures are made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove them for cleaning.

When you wear a denture for the first time it may take some getting used to when speaking or eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care when conducting your hygiene regime so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. The hygienist will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this.
