Dentures are one of the cheapest tooth replacement treatments available and don’t require invasive surgery. Our team source the latest in dental technology to ensure our patients’ dentures look beautiful and realistic. Dentures are available in full and partial arrangements. Full dentures rest on your gums and palate (roof of your mouth), while partial dentures use a metal frame that attaches to your existing teeth.
Dentures require diligent care and attention; their lifespan will depend on your oral hygiene and any underlying health issues. The typical lifespan of dentures is between five and ten years, though it’s not unheard of to have dentures lasting much longer in patients with good oral hygiene habits. Leaving dentures in the mouth at night time promotes tooth decay and gum disease, so if you’re worried about pulling them out before bed every night, they may not be the best option for you.
