Dentures


Dentures are a way of replacing missing teeth with a removable plate. They can be made from plastic or a combination of metal and plastic. Both types may have clips (clasps) to help keep the denture in place in your mouth. Depending on where they are, some of these clips may show when you smile or open your mouth.

Plastic partial dentures are less expensive to make, and can be easily added to or repaired.

Metal partial dentures are usually made from an alloy of cobalt and chromium, and they are much stronger and can be supported by the remaining teeth. Although the base is metal, they have gum-coloured plastic and natural-looking teeth fixed to them. They are more expensive than plastic ones.

FAQs

Dentures may break if you drop them. Always clean your denture over a bowl of water or a folded towel in case you drop it.

To clean your dentures, the general rule is: brush and soak every day. Brush your dentures first, to help remove any bits of food. Use a non-abrasive denture cleaner, not toothpaste. Be careful not to scrub too hard as this may cause grooves in the surface.

Make sure you brush all the surfaces of the dentures, including the surface that fits against your gums. This is especially important if you use any kind of denture fixative.

Soak your dentures every day in a denture-cleaning solution. This will help remove any plaque and stubborn stains that are left. It will also help to disinfect your dentures, leaving them feeling fresher. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Don’t keep your dentures in overnight unless there are specific reasons for you to keep them in.

If you notice a build-up of stains or scale, have your denture cleaned by your dental team.

The main alternatives are a fixed bridge or a dental implant. A dental bridge is made by putting crowns on the teeth at either side of the gap, and then joining these two crowns together by placing a false tooth in the space. This is all made in the laboratory and then the pieces are cemented into place with special adhesives. The bridge can’t be removed.

Another option is an adhesive bridge. This has ‘wings’ that are bonded to the back of the supporting teeth, with very little drilling needed.

My family have been with this surgery for years and have received nothing but the best of care. I would recommend this dentist in a heartbeat!

I would highly recommend Evergreen Dentistry. I find my Dentist to be very professional.

I’ve been a patient at this practice for over 25 years and I’ve never had any reason to complain . Even when I moved miles away years ago, I still attended as I was happy with the service provided. Now with the restructuring of management etc, I am more than impressed with the service. Matthew and Michelle have excellent standards and advice, warm and welcoming too. Hannah, also has the same approach. I would recommend Evergreen Dentistry to anyone and I am thankful for their care.

The treatment was excellent my daughter has a perfect smile . I would highly recommend the dentist to my friends and family. Very good service throughout the treatment.

Top notch service, and they openly give you options on how to proceed with dental care, i.e. for me, choices on whether to have braces or not. They give their opinions but ultimately let you decide, with the appropriate amount of information. Would recommend!

We visited the orthodontist in this practice through an NHS referral from our usual dentist for my son. He is a very nervous 8-year-old and despite this being an assessment appointment only, I was very impressed with the way he was involved. The lovely dentist that saw us and their assistant made my son feel at ease and took their time to explain clearly what was going to happen. Really good service despite not being our usual dentist.

The treatment was excellent – my daughter has a perfect smile. I would highly recommend the dentist to my friends and family. Very good service throughout the treatment.

I have been a patient at Evergreen for many years and have been totally satisfied with both the service I have received and the treatment given. So satisfied, that when I moved away from the area, I chose to make the journey to remain with the practice.

Despite this not being my regular dental practice I was able to book an emergency appointment at short notice to assess and treat a painful tooth. The staff were highly professional and helpful and when I told them the pain had increased considerably over night they managed to bring my scheduled appointment forward 24hrs. During the visit an X-ray was taken and the dentist talked me through the results, treatment options and recommendations. This was done very clearly. The dentist then proceeded to treat the infected tooth even though the practice was due to close for the day. I was very impressed with the whole experience.

My daughter has received thorough and professional treatment at Evergreen Dental Surgery.
