Magnificent Modern Day DenturesAdvancement in technologies, novel materials used in dentistry and innovative dental techniques have led to the development of modern denture solutions for replacing missing teeth. Teeth can be lost due to tooth decay, gum disease or oral trauma. Modern day dentures are able to replace one or more missing teeth.
Assessment for modern day denturesAfter assessment, if dentures are suitable, individuals have choices in the type of denture they may prefer. Using dental impressions and images, dentures are custom-made. Time may be needed for gums to heal from extraction before temporary dentures are provided. The bespoke dentures are then fitted and adjusted, providing fully functional teeth with a natural smile.

Following dentist-recommended guidelines for oral hygiene practise, denture care and repair allows patients to get the best out of their dentures for longer-lasting results.
