Dentures or false teeth are constructed to replace missing teeth and are supported by gum tissue. Traditionally, they have been removable, but modern techniques can now provide dentures that are secured in place with dental implants, giving greater stability. They also cover less tissue, allowing for an improved ability to taste compared to older style dentures.
Dentures are custom made to fit your mouth, so they take on the appearance of your natural teeth. Getting your great smile back is easy – your clinical dental technician will work with your dentist to create new or replacement dentures.

Can my dentist fit me with dentures?
You’ll find most, if not all dentists have the ability to fit and place dentures. During your appointment, your Maven Dental Group dentist will take impressions of your mouth so the dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth precisely, which will make them comfortable and effective. You'll work with your dentist to pick out the right size, shape, and colour for your false teeth and it will then be sent to a dental laboratory that specialises in creating dental materials like this. Once the denture is made, your dentist will insert the denture and make sure it fits properly. If you have any ongoing issues with your dentures, your Maven Dental Group dentist is always available to answer any questions and monitor the success of your new teeth.
