Dentures

Keep on smiling

For many Helena Street Dental Midland patients, dentures are a popular tooth replacement solution. To ensure your dentures remain comfortable and stable several appointments will be required. Dentures can be made entirely from acrylic or acrylic bonded to a metal base to provide additional support.

A partial denture is used to replace a few missing teeth and a full denture is used to replace an entire upper or lower arch, or both.

It is important to remove your denture at night. This will allow your gums to rest after supporting your dentures all day and during meals. Placing your dentures in a glass of water or a denture solution will prevent them from drying out, which can cause them to become brittle, change shape and affect their fit, stability and comfort.

When you have missing teeth, the contour of your gums can change. Therefore you will occasionally require the base of your denture to be refined to keep it fitting securely and comfortably with your gum-line.

Additionally, mouth ulcers and cancers can occur under your dentures and may go undiagnosed for some time. Attending regular dental check-ups at Helena Street Dental Midland will ensure your mouth and gums are in perfect oral health.
