Missing Teeth? Everyone loves a full natural smile. Getting your great smile back is easy

Dentures have come a long way over the years and now we can fit them to suit your lifestyle. Modern techniques can now provide dentures that are secured in place with dental implants to provide better stability. Ask your Maven dentist if this is suitable for you.

What are Dentures?

Dentures (also known as false teeth) are custom-made to fit your mouth, so they can appear as natural teeth.  Constructed to replace missing teeth, dentures have traditionally been removable. More modern techniques can now provide secured dentures in place with dental implants. Book an appointment with your Maven dentist to find the best solution for you.


Immediate dentures

Should you require some or all of your natural teeth to be removed, you’ll need immediate dentures. Your dentist will work with you and the clinical dental technician to deliver an immediate denture.

How it works:

  • Take an impression of your mouth
  • Remove your tooth/teeth and fit denture right then and there
  • Review healing process during the first week
  • After 3 to 6 months your dentures are adjusted
  • After 6 to 12 months your dentures are re-lined


Replacing your dentures

To ensure that your dentures offer good support for your cheeks and lips and continue to fit well, you may need to replace your dentures every eight to ten years. If your dentures seem to be uncomfortable, worn or broken please get in contact with your nearest Maven Dental practice to book an appointment.


Re-lining your dentures

As your mouth gradually changes shape over time, you may notice that your dentures no longer fit as well as they used to.  If your dentures are less than four years old, they can be re-lined.  This is a simple procedure that can usually be carried out by your dentist on the same day and will get you smiling again.
