Dentures are mainly used to replace missing or lost teeth as they offer people a solution which can help them to overcome issues which they may be facing with confidence or even eating.
Here at Govan Dental Care when you come to us for dentures in Glasgow there are 3 different types that we offer, these are:
- full dentures – this type of denture is made to fit snugly over your gums. A full denture is used to replace all of the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw
- partial dentures – this type of denture is used to replace the space(s) left by missing teeth when there is natural teeth still present. Clasps or precision attachments can help dentures to be fitted onto natural teeth which in turn produces a greater fit
- immediate dentures – this type of denture is only a temporary substitute which is used when you are having teeth removed. This denture is made with one visit and is fitted as soon as the tooth/teeth have been removed
Above we have given some information on each of the different types of dentures in Glasgow that can be provided but if you do want to read more them you can do so on the denture page of our website or you can speak to one of our staff who can help answer any questions which you may have with regards to them or any of the other treatments that we offer.
Dentures should be cleaned thoroughly every day as they are as important as natural teeth so need taken care of. Construction of dentures to the level where both yourself and the dentist is happy can take around 4-6 weeks so if you live in Glasgow and are considering dentures then why not get the process started as soon as possible.
