Dentures are one of the most popular ways to permanently replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth, which can replace a whole arch of teeth at once.

Removable and cost-effective dentures remain a very popular and common way to replace missing teeth. We can use them to replace just one, two, or several missing teeth or even a whole arch of teeth – dentures can even replace more than one missing tooth that isn’t adjacent to one another.


What are dentures made of?

Traditional dentures are usually made of an acrylic or cobalt chrome base and a set of prosthetic teeth.

How are dentures held in place?

Some dentures remain in place due to suction, while others require an adhesive such as dental glue. At Rothwell Dental Care and Implant Centre, we can also provide implant-retained dentures held in place via implants.

Can I eat with my dentures in?

Yes, one of the main benefits of dentures is that they should make it easier for you to eat and chew. Some patients find that it takes some time to get used to eating while wearing them, but once they do, chewing and eating are much improved compared to having missing or severely damaged teeth.

How should I keep my dentures clean?

Dentures require a little extra care and attention when it comes to keeping them clean and should be brushed and soaked every day. Our team will be able to give you all the guidance you need regarding keeping your new dentures in tip-top condition.

Why are my dentures loose?

Dentures can sometimes feel loose because of a loss of bone density in the jaw due to losing a tooth or teeth. An adhesive can help them feel more stable, but if you’re having more significant issues with loose dentures, you shouldn’t hesitate to contact us here at the practice.
