Dentures are the most traditional way of replacing missing teeth. A denture used to replace a few teeth is known as a 'partial denture', but if all of the teeth are replaced, it is known as a 'full denture'.

Patients are frequently concerned that wearing a denture will be very obvious to other people. There is no need to be concerned - dentures now can look extremely natural by using the latest materials.

If you have some missing teeth, a denture will not only improve the way you look, but it will improve the way you bite, chew and speak. There is always a risk that if missing teeth are not replaced with a denture, or with a bridge or implant, the remaining teeth will suffer and become damaged. This ensuing damage could result in the loss of further teeth.

Brixham Dental Practice offers both full and partial dentures, as well as advice on how to care for your new denture and how to ensure that your mouth remains healthy.
