What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth. They can be complete (replacing all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw) or partial (replacing some missing teeth). Dentures are custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth and are typically made of acrylic resin or a combination of acrylic resin and metal.

 To Whom Dentures are Recommended

Dentures are recommended for people who have missing teeth or are facing tooth loss. It is an ideal alternative for those who don’t want to undergo dental implant surgery. Our dental professional can assess an individual’s needs and determine if dentures are a suitable to them. Dentures are excellent solutions for improving your appearance and smile as well ability to eat and speak.

Fast Dentures Fitting Procedure for Effective Outcomes:

At, Chapel Gate Dental, our process involves taking impressions, measuring the jaw, and fitting the dentures to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

  • Consultation: During the consultation, our dentist will examine your mouth, take x-rays, and discuss your options and preferences.
  • Impression and Bite Registration: The specialists take impressions for dentures by making a mould of the patient’s teeth and gums. This is typically done by having the patient bite into a soft material, such as dental putty, which then hardens and forms a mould.
  • Try-in and Fabrication: At this stage, dentists schedule an appointment to try the dentures on for the first time. They check fit and appearance, make adjustments if necessary, ensure a comfortable fit, and ensure proper alignment.
  • Fitting and Care Instructions: At the final fitting appointment, the dentist will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. The dentist will also give instructions on how to care for the dentures and what to expect while adjusting to them.
