Dentures are an effective tooth replacement treatment and have been used to restore beautiful, healthy and functional smiles for many years. We are delighted to offer modern partial and complete dentures.
Partial dentures are designed to replace a single lost tooth or multiple missing teeth. They are made to blend in with the natural teeth for a seamless aesthetic and help to restore function to the mouth, as well as preventing the remaining teeth from slipping out of position. Partial dentures are secured using clasps and they represent a simple and affordable option for patients who have lost their natural teeth through injury or decay.
Complete dentures are made to replace entire arches of missing teeth and they can transform the smile, as well as improving quality of life and confidence. We use the latest imaging techniques and impressions of your teeth to create custom-designed dentures that enable you to speak, eat and smile without anxiety. If you’ve had a number of missing teeth for a long period of time, you will find that wearing a denture will have a positive effect on your day to day life, as well as your confidence. Our complete dentures are made from high quality materials and are designed to mimic the aesthetic of healthy, beautiful teeth.
Dentures are held in place by the suction of the gums, but it is also possible to add security and stability by using fixative or investing in implant-retained dentures, which are stabilised by dental implants.
If you have missing teeth and you would like to do something about it, don’t hesitate to call us and make an appointment for a consultation. We can go through the pros and cons of treatments, talk to you about the treatment process and explore other options, such as implants.
Whether you have one or two lost teeth or a whole arch of missing teeth, our modern dentures will transform your smile and have you feeling confident again. Our dentures are natural-looking, light and functional, allowing you to do everything you could do with natural teeth.

Whether you are unable to wear conventional dentures due to bone loss or you are searching for a tooth replacement treatment, which offers greater stability than traditional dentures, we can help. Implant-retained dentures are dentures with a difference. Rather than being held in place by the natural suction power of the gums, these dentures are anchored by dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium devices, which are fixed into small holes in the jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots. Implants are special because they are able to integrate into the bone tissue and once this process has taken place, a denture can be attached to the implants. With implants there to support the denture, patients can enjoy increased bite power, amazing aesthetics and the ability to perform everyday activities with ease. Implant-retained dentures also give you peace of mind; with the implants in place, there is no risk of a denture slipping, irritating the gums or becoming loose and this means you can smile, interact and communicate with others and eat without any hassle or stress. We usually recommend between 4 and 6 dental implants per denture. In cases where bone loss may be a problem, we can fit mini dental implants, rather than traditional implants. Treatment time is around 3-6 months and the results of treatment are incredible!
Weston-super-Mare dentists are now offering the most effective, sturdy and realistic way of replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are rapidly becoming the most popular way of filling that unsightly hole in your dental arc caused by a missing tooth. But just what is about dental implants that makes them so special?
Unlike other dental restorations such as dental bridges and partial dentures, the dental implant replaces the whole of the tooth from root to crown. This means that it provides a solid and lifelike substitute for a real tooth and is also very strong. This is very good news for patients who have previously experienced the fragility of other restorations. This can include broken dental bridges because food of a certain consistency has proven too tough or hard for the repair. The other major advantage of dental implants is that they are permanent and will not need replacing after about ten years, so once it has been fitted it will last a lifetime.
Dental implants come in the form of small metal screws, usually titanium, that are fitted directly into the jaw. They are then given a certain amount of time to settle in and become solid with the other tissue. Once this has happened they cam then be used as a base for the remainder of the treatment that involves a post and then artificial tooth, carefully chosen to match the colour, shape and size of the other teeth.
It is also possible for patients who wear dentures to have a series of small implants fitted to act as a secure base. This eliminates the worry of loose dentures and also means patients can eat what they want when they want.
Imagine if it were possible to replace a tooth when it had been lost due to decay or injury. For many years, the closest dentists have come is with partial dentures, often known as plates, or dental bridges. Both of these restored the cosmetic appearance of the teeth but they never felt like real teeth and they certainly didn’t behave like them. Patients often have had to watch what they ate to avoid causing any damage to the more fragile replacements. Then there was the question of replacing the dental substitute every eight to ten years when it began to fall apart. Well, now there is a genuine alternative for a real tooth that lasts a lifetime and feels solid, and allows you to eat what you want, when you want.
Dental implants are the only type of dental restoration that replaces the whole part of the tooth from root to crown. The implant itself replaces the root, as it is a small metal screw that is placed directly into the jawbone, just like a real root. This provides a solid base for the artificial tooth, which is attached via a post. The artificial tooth, chosen and designed to match the existing teeth, will then be held firmly in place with no fragile bonding of attachments in danger of breaking. This is because all the support mechanism is held within and beneath the tooth. Apples, nuts and other hard foods will no longer be a problem and the implant will last for the rest of your life.
Dental implants are available from Swindon dentists and are implanted over the course of several appointments over several weeks. This is because the implant will need time to fuse with the other tissue and bone in the mouth.
Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed directly into the jawbone by dentists to act as solid anchors for artificial teeth. Unlike partial dentures or dental bridges, which only replace the tooth from the gum up, a dental implant is a complete replacement for the whole of the tooth and as such acts and feels a lot more like a real tooth.
Anyone who has lost a tooth to decay or dental injury knows the amount of pain and anxiety it can cause. Dental replacements like partial dentures and bridges restore the cosmetic appearance of the tooth but never really feel like real teeth. Patients are always conscious that they have an artificial replacement and have to adapt their lifestyle accordingly. This means staying away from foods likely to cause damage to these structures. A dental implant provides a much more rigid alternative that does not involve any degree of sacrifice on the patient’s behalf.
The implant itself is a small titanium screw that is drilled into the bone through the gum. This is then left to fuse with the tissue and become more stable. When satisfied that the screw has been assimilated into the bone tissue thoroughly, the dentist can then attach the artificial tooth, designed to closely resemble the colour and appearance of the other teeth. Implants can be used to secure one or more teeth, or a series of mini implants can be used as a base for a complete denture.
A dental implant from a Weston-super-Mare dentist can last a whole lifetime, if properly cared for. Many patients even forget that they are there such is the level of realism provided by the implant. If you have a missing tooth or are considering replacing a previous restoration ask a dentist about dental implants.
