Dentures Reservoir, Preston & Surrounds

Dentures offer many benefits for those who have lost their natural teeth. They can help improve your appearance and self-esteem, make it easier to eat and speak, and help you avoid other dental problems. Our team of experienced dentists at our denture clinic at Reservoir Smiles offer quality dentures to locals in Reservoir, Preston and the surrounding suburbs.


What are Dentures?

Dentures are false teeth that are worn to replace missing teeth. They are usually made of plastic or porcelain and fit snugly over the gums. Dentures can be partial or complete, depending on the missing teeth.

Complete dentures replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures fill in the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. Dentures are held in place by suction or a special adhesive and can be removed for cleaning.

Wearing dentures takes a bit of getting used to, and it may take some time to get used to speaking and eating with them. So it’s important to clean your dentures daily to prevent plaque buildup and infection.


Types of Dentures

There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when all natural teeth have been removed, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.


Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are made of a plastic base shaped to fit snugly over the gums. The base is fitted with artificial teeth made from various materials, including porcelain or acrylic.

Complete dentures are typically held in place by a mild adhesive but can also be secured with implants. Implants provide excellent stability and can help to preserve the jawbone.


Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are similar to complete dentures, but they only replace some of the teeth. They usually consist of a plastic base with artificial teeth attached. The artificial teeth may be held in place by clasps that attach to the natural teeth or precision attachments, which are more secure but more expensive.


Benefits of Dentures

If you’re considering dentures, you may wonder what the benefits are. Dentures can improve your appearance and give you back your smile. They can also help with chewing and speaking. And they can make it easier to keep your mouth clean.

Dentures can also help with your self-esteem and self-confidence. If you’re unhappy with your smile, dentures can boost you. And, if you’re embarrassed about missing teeth, dentures can help you feel better about yourself. Our clinic helps boost the confidence of those in Reservoir, Preston and the surrounding suburbs with our denture services.


How to take care of your dentures

If you have dentures, it’s essential to take good care of them so that they last a long time and stay comfortable. Here are some tips for taking care of your dentures:

  • Rinse your dentures after eating and before going to bed.
  • Brush your dentures daily with a soft toothbrush or denture brush. You can also use mild soap and water to clean them.
