Nothing is more important to us than your oral health and the beauty of your smile. Your denture is an investment in you, and our vision is for you to be as happy with your teeth as we are making them for you. With this in mind feel free to download the PDF file which contains further care instructions for your information.
In our experience, an educated patient is well informed to make the right decisions and accept the certain limitations of a prosthesis. Therefore, all dentures come with a complimentary appliance case and denture brush for you to keep safe and look after your denture and as our current patients will confirm, we are always available to answer your questions or to help out where possible.
Refferrals from a dentist or doctor are not necessary. Dental prosthetists are legally allowed to deal directly with the public for denture and denture issues as well as sports mouthguards without a referral. Savings in time are substantial, making the transition into your new dentures that much easier.

Do I need new dentures?
I have been asked this question many times, and generally the person asking the question knows the answer.
I pose these questions back:
- How old are your dentures?
- Are you happy with the look of your dentures?
- Are you getting more and more bits of food under your dentures?
- Have they recently started to break more and more?
- Does your face and profile look sunken or scrunched up when you close your jaw?
- Is it harder to chew food normally?
- Do you have spaces between your back teeth when you close normally?
- Are your dentures out of your mouth rather than in your mouth?
- Do your peers make negative comments about your dentures?
- Have you lost or gained weight in recent times?
- Are the clips or teeth or "gums" chipped and damaged?
- Are you finding the need to buy adhesives to help you get through?
- Do you want a change in the way you look?
All of these questions are obvious but will help you make a decision about getting new dentures. With modern materials and techniques, it is easier than you think to get a new smile and appearance. Treat yourself — after all it is your smile, your face and a reflection on your loved ones around you.
Please feel free to call us for a chat about your dentures. It won’t cost a thing for advice or information and it may put your mind at ease knowing you have options.
