Dentures are an option for patients who have lost several or all their natural teeth.

Dentures are available in both full and partial varieties. However dental implants are by far a better option which will allow you to eat correctly and smile with confidence.

What is the difference between a full and partial denture?

Full dentures can replace an entire arch of upper or lower teeth with natural-looking prosthetics. If you have lost all your teeth or we need to extract your remaining natural teeth for any reason, your dentist may recommend a full denture.

A full upper denture covers the roof of the mouth, while a lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate the tongue. Dentures fix onto the gums via suction, while some patients use a denture adhesive for increased stability.

We use partial dentures to fill in individual, non-adjacent gaps. A partial denture consists of a flesh-coloured plate with false teeth attached to it, matched to the colour of your remaining teeth. Metal clasps attach to a few of your natural teeth to secure the partial denture in place.

What are Valplast flexible dentures?

Acorn Dental Care is proud to recommend flexible dentures from Valplast. They are made from an ultra-tough, flexible nylon resin, which allows for a more secure and comfortable fit against the gums. The result is a very natural-looking denture with improved comfort, stability, and durability compared to traditional options.

The hypoallergenic formulation of Valplast contains no metals, colouring agents, or acrylic monomers, making them an excellent choice for patients with allergies.

How do I care for my dentures?

Remove your dentures after eating to rinse them. At least once a day, use a soft brush and denture cleaning solution to remove any built-up food particles. Also, soak your dentures in the solution overnight to disinfect them. If you use a denture adhesive, make sure you completely remove any remnants during cleaning.

What is a soft reline for dentures?

Over time, our gums change-making dentures uncomfortable to wear. The reline is a pliable material applied to the plate of a denture, providing a proper fit once again.
