Dentures

Full or partial dentures are removable prosthetics; this means that they are removable appliances that can be used to replace multiple missing teeth to full sets. Dentures are designed to look and function like your natural teeth.

Dentures can improve aesthetics as they visibly fill in the spaces where your teeth were originally. They also improve your bites function and make it easier to eat.

What type of dentures do we provide?

Acrylic Dentures

Acrylic dentures are made from acrylic which is a type of plastic material that can be moulded into the shape of your mouth. This material is easily adaptable if your mouth changes in time, for example addition of other teeth can be added if you lose another tooth and if the denture becomes loose it can be re-lined to fit the shape of your mouth better.

Chrome Dentures

Chrome dentures are made from metal. The denture has a metal cobalt base (which sits on your gums) and a plastic acrylic that attaches the denture teeth. However unlike acrylic dentures, chrome dentures can’t be adapted, for example you can’t have additional teeth after the denture is completed.

Full Dentures

You can have full dentures that replace all your teeth or if you only have a few gaps you can have a partial denture to fill the spaces in your mouth. Dentures can be held in by the natural suction of your gums, metal clasps that grip onto your natural teeth or you can buy products such as Fixodent to hold the denture in place when you eat and talk. Dentures can also be fitted onto implants.

How are Dentures made?

Dentures are made in multiple stages to make sure they function and look as best as possible.

Impressions will be taken at the fist appointment to make a mould of your teeth and gums. The next appointment the dentist will take an impression of your bite in a wax material and maybe another impression is also required for a more accurate result. This helps the lab work out how you bite and shows them where to position the teeth. Then you will have a try in appointment, so we can see how it fits, check the bite and also the aesthetics of the denture, whilst the lab can still make adjustments as required. Finally the denture will be fitted by the dentist and they will ensure it fits well and make any final slight adjustments there and then.

Dentures best practices

You must remove your denture at night to rest your gums and they should be cleaned regularly. If the denture becomes uncomfortable at any point adjustments can be made by the dentist. If you have full upper and lower dentures you may think you don’t have to visits the dentist for your check-ups, however the dentist still needs to examine your soft tissues and check the dentures fit to make sure it’s still functioning to its best ability.

I have suffered some awful mouth sores over the past week and I was pleased with the very prompt appointment today (Monday) that I was provided with, having raised an online request only on Saturday.
On Saturday evening, one of the doctors (Dr Jandu?) phoned me and helped me with a recommended course of action and he followed through by making me the appointment with Matthew Walker today. I was greeted in a friendly, upbeat manner by the dental nurse and I felt very reassured after today’s visit. Mr Walker will phone me in a week, to see how things are progressing.
Overall an excellent level of care and all “very joined up”.

I recently joined Stourcote after a traumatic experience with another dentist. From the outset they were really welcoming & listened to my concerns & demonstrated that they wanted to help.
I’ve now seen Manisha a few times & even though I’m a ridiculously nervous patient (I started crying as soon as I sat in the chair today), she was so lovely and understanding. I felt safe, in control & comfortable.
I will never enjoy visiting the dentist but Stourcote have made it manageable for me, so I can’t recommend highly enough.

Jenny, Facebook Review

Brilliant service! I wasn’t a patient at this practice when I phoned for my initial appointment, but I had a dental emergency and was not getting the right care at my previous practice. Stourcote Dental fitted me in for an appointment fast, identified what needed to be done, and sorted me out. They were friendly and caring from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was lovely, I’ve never had such great dental care. I’m terrified of going to the dentist so extra special thanks for taking care of me. I’ll be a lot less nervous when I come back!

I’ve been a patient and my children have too and i must say that the reception staff especially Ann are wonderful. So helpful, friendly and polite all the time. Their customer service is second to none.
Viz the dentist I’ve been seeing is amazing so kind and caring and a perfectionist. Boys treatment under NHS has been very slow. There was an admin error at the beginning which delayed their treatment but not sure who’s fault that was but Ann has been a great help moving this forward. Obviously due to Covid its not a priority by any means. Thank you for your hard work and adapting so swiftly all the time.
