Dentures

Dentures are removal replacements for lost or missing teeth that are designed to look and function like your own natural teeth and surrounding gum tissues. Our dentists at Staina House Dental Practice Ltd in Garstang use modern techniques to make well fitting, high quality dentures.

There are two types of denture which are known as complete or partial. Complete dentures are used where you have lost all of your natural teeth. Partial dentures are used when you still have some of your natural teeth. A partial denture may be considered as an alternative to a bridge or implant for replacing missing teeth. Sometimes implants are used in conjunction to provide the best possible outcome. A denture can be further classed as either conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are made after the teeth are missing whereas immediate dentures are made before teeth are planned to be removed so you are not left with any gaps.

They can be made from a variety of materials depending on your needs. All are designed to feel as comfortable as possible at the same time as giving a natural looking smile. We use the highest quality teeth available called Enigma Teeth from Schottlander which have received the Queen’s Award. We spend time making sure the denture meets the functional and aesthetic needs of each patient. In most cases we make a trial denture so the patient can see and feel what the denture will be like before it is finished.

The technicians that we use have many years of experience and produce work of the highest quality.

Denture Repairs

Dentures may get damaged or broken for a number of reasons. Dentures may be dropped by accident or sometimes may break due to natural changes in your mouth over time. It is always best to have an examination by one of our dentists before your denture is repaired to find the cause of the problem and prevent further breakage. If your denture is broken do not attempt to repair the denture yourself using products like super glue which can further weaken the denture. Contact us to make an appointment so we can arrange for a professional repair.
