What you should know about Dentures with Andrew Murray Dental Care

Your denture will have a gum coloured acrylic base that replaces lost gum tissue and which is used to support the denture teeth. This denture base can be closely matched to your natural gum colour. Partial dentures may be strengthened with a lightweight metal alloy and can incorporate clasps that fit around your natural teeth or special precision attachments which help to hold them firmly in place. There are many different types of high-quality denture teeth that may be used and these are chosen to compliment your facial features, gender and skin tone.

Dentures can take a little getting used to, so it is important to give yourself plenty of time to become accustomed to wearing them and we can provide plenty of advice on learning how to eat and speak comfortably with your new teeth. It is still important to book regular check-ups, even if all your natural teeth have been replaced with full dentures.
