A denture is a removable appliance which can replace missing teeth.

It is important to replace missing teeth to help with eating, to support the facial muscles, and aid speech.

Before any denture treatment, a thorough examination of the oral cavity is required to ensure the teeth and surrounding soft tissues are healthy and in optimum condition to support dentures.

Several appointments are required for impressions, bite records, trial wax insertions and then the final insertion and instructions.

All dentures lose their fit through natural changes in the mouth.  Dentures are checked at routine examinations, where refitting or relining may be necessary.
