As a dentist, it is common to see patients of all ages who are distressed because they have lost one or more of their natural teeth. At Harley Street Dental Clinic, our expert team of dental professionals – including dentists and prosthodontists – have helped many patients to restore their smiles and their confidence with the help of dentures.
Dentures are not a new concept – even the ancient Egyptians fashioned crude replacement teeth. However, there have been massive advances in the field of prosthodontics (the dental specialism that deals with the restoration and replacement of teeth). At Harley Street Dental Clinic, our prosthodontics team offer a number of denture options for patients who need to replace several or all of their natural teeth.
In some cases, it is possible for your dentist to fit your dentures at the same time as removing failing natural teeth. This is known as “immediate dentures” and means that you won’t be left with gaps in your mouth or no teeth.
If you are interested in immediate dentures, speak to your dentist at your initial consultation. They will carefully examine you and assess if this is the best treatment option in your case.
Dentures can be full – replacing an entire arch of teeth – or partial – replacing some teeth in one arch of the mouth. They can be made from a range of materials, from plastic to porcelain. Your dentist will discuss all your denture options at your initial consultation here in our Harley Street clinic.
As dental professionals we would always recommend replacing your teeth, and dentures are an excellent way to do this. At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we recognise the value of your smile and your oral health, and our team of cosmetic dentists and prosthodontists have many years of training and experience, enabling them to create the perfect dentures for every patient.
