Meeting Your Needs

We believe that it’s important to get the denture that’s right for you. There are many different types of denture, from the minimalist metal frame types to the all acrylic dentures. Some rely on the remaining teeth for retention and others rely on a suction from the soft tissues of the mouth. There are also different types of acrylic denture base and a huge range of teeth to choose from. Don’t worry, though; We have chosen some of the best materials and teeth available and we will guide you in making the right choice for you.

What Type Is Right For You?

Standard Acrylic Dentures

The least expensive type and by far the the most common type of denture. If you have an NHS denture or a temporary denture, it is probably made with standard acrylic. This doesn’t mean they have to be poor quality though, with good quality acrylic teeth and some care and attention spent on taking impressions and registering the bite, these dentures can last for a good few years.

Metal Frame Dentures

Metal dentures have a very small profile so are great when speech may be an issue. they also work very well for anyone with some natural teeth remaining because they can provide great retention. Metal frames are also very strong.

Flexible Plastic Dentures

Flexible dentures are ideal for some people, particularly if the denture is to be quite small or if the natural teeth are set at an angle where a traditional denture will not hold in place very well. they are also good for covering up exposed root from where the gum has receded. Flexible dentures are certainly not suitable for everyone but, if you would like to find out if they are right for you, why not book a free consult with one of our Clinical Dental Technicians to find out? We can carry out a full assessment and lay out some options and remember, there is no obligation to buy so call Opal now on 01793 200192 and she will book you an appointment that suits you.

Injection Moulded Dentures

Injection moulded dentures are the most durable dentures available today and we use a world leading technology to produce them right here in our laboratory. The injection technique is suited to almost any situation but really comes in to its own for people with a heavy bite and have a history of broken dentures. Coupled with hybrid abrasive resistant teeth, this denture will last, look great and fit exceptionally well.

Implant Retained Dentures

Having just a few implants placed with the addition of retention clips on the denture can make all the difference to people who cannot keep their denture in place due to loss of too many natural teeth, or have excessive bone loss in the areas required for denture retention. This technique is very common when all the natural lower teeth have been lost and the denture has nothing to keep it in place. It involves two small screws place in the lower bone and two micro attachments located in the denture so that the denture just simply clips in to place. This treatment can literally change the way you feel about wearing dentures and it’s the most cost effective use of implants.

 Implant Stabilised Dentures

This procedure requires a minimum of four implants to be placed per jaw (usually six in the upper jaw where possible) which make the denture not only retentive but also completely stable. This option is much better than just having two implants but it is also more expensive. If you want to lose the denture altogether then we can also provide you with our high end fixed implants which have no palate and are onlt removable by a dentist. this is the closest we can get to replacing natural teeth.
