Removable prostheses, otherwise known as dentures or false teeth is the oldest known method for replacing missing teeth. Although with the introduction of dental implants, use of dentures has been getting less and less, still many people that do not wish to consider the implant option and are not keen or not able to have Dental bridges, still consider the denture option.

I have been going to Dr. Clarke since 1977 as he takes the greatest care of his dental patients. The work he has done has always been of the highest standard possible and he always offers intelligent solutions. Since moving to Wales I still return to Bayswater for my dental treatment. I did have to have emergency treatment in Wales and the dentist was highly respectful of the work done by Dr Clarke. In fact I think he was in awe!
Can't speak highly enough!

rating star icon LondonHad my wisdom tooth out, was the quickest and least painful dental procedure ever. Melanie and the dental assistant were so patient. Constantly letting me know exactly what was going on and checking that I couldn’t feel anything. Would recommend everybody to use this dentist practice!

What type of denture should i have?

In modern dentistry, there are many different types of dentures available. To summarise the different types available, we can categorise them into;

1- All plastic, such as full acrylic dentures.

Acrylic is one the oldest and most tested material used in making dentures. It is still one of the most widely used material and it is ideal for use in full denture, replacing teeth when they are all missing.

Advantages:

  • Easy to repair.
  • Relatively light in weight.
  • Cost effective.

Disadvantages:

  • Their strength comes from their thickness, so can be bulky.
  • Break if dropped on hard surfaces.
  • Is gum supported, meaning the denture only sit on the gum.

2 – Combination of metal and plastic dentures

This is one the most tolerated type of denture and they are usually very comfortable. Its strength comes from a metal skeleton made usually from cobalt and chrome, with plastic teeth and gum on the metal substructure. Although they can be used for making full denture but they are ideal for making partial denture which means there are still some teeth standing in the jaw.

With this type of denture, The plastic can be Acrylic and if so usually they have metal clasps. Alternatively the plastic material can be Nylon which has some flexibility to compare with acrylic plastics, hence the name Flexi Denture when Nylon is used. With Flexi Dentures no metal clasps are used in the aesthetic zone of the mouth. Because of this they are also referred to as aesthetic denture as they have no metal clasps in the front of the mouth.

In our experience partial dentures made with metal substructure and flexi plastic are one of the best tolerated type of false teeth with good aesthetic result.

Advantages:

  • Easier to tolerate.
  • Can be repaired when acrylic is used..
  • Better retention and stability.
  • Better function and aesthetics.
  • Both, tooth and gum supported.

Disadvantages:

  • Need to have some teeth.
  • Cost, as they are more expensive.
  • Any changes to the shape of the teeth can result in metal skeleton not fit any longer.
  • Compromised aesthetics as part of metal may be visible.

3 – Flexi dentures or aesthetic dentures

This type of denture uses a form of plastic that has some flexibility which acrylic dentures do not have. They are ideal for replacing few missing teeth, specially in the front of the mouth in the aesthetic zone, part of the mouth that people can see when one smiles.

They are usually very comfortable and as the plastic has some flexibility, clasp can be made with the same material as plastic for better retention and therefore no need for metal clasps.

Advantages:

  • Flexibility of the material.
  • Can have metal free clasps for better retention of the denture.
  • Aesthetically better than the other type of denture.
  • Are light weight.
  • Can be easier to tolerate.

Disadvantages:

  • Not suitable for replacing many teeth unless it has metal substructure.
  • Usually they are more expensive than Acrylic dentures.
  • This type of plastic is vulnerable to stains to compare with acrylic.

WHAT IS THE COST OF HAVING DENTURES OR FALSE TEETH?

rating star icon LondonGreat customer service and well-experienced dental surgeons. I was able to book a Saturday appointment after feeling a large bump on my gum on Monday. There was a longer-than usual wait time the day of the appointment and the receptionist was very accommodating and agreed to call me once the doctor was done. I live very close so went home for 15 minutes, hung my laundry, and got the call to come back.

It turned out I needed a tooth extraction as my last wisdom tooth was starting to break through. The dentist assured me he was a specialist in tooth extractions, and he is! Even the needle full of numbing agent was so fast I could barely feel it. The entire process, from me getting into the chair to them finishing the procedure (including taking x-rays) only took 45 minutes—the epitome of quick and painless at the dentist! They were also very accommodating and provided me OTC anti-inflammatory pills to save me a trip to Boots. I required no antibiotics, healed well, and my stitches fell out on schedule after 10 days. Highly recommend Bayswater Dental. :)

rating star icon LondonOwing to an upbringing in Scotland many years ago (pre Fluoride) and years of travelling as well as an injury to my jaw from a climbing accident, I have had to see well over 20 dentists in the course of my life. I have experience of dentists in several countries and work has included implants as well as other quite complex work. When I visited Dr Vahid at Bayswater, he drew up a comprehensive plan, which included some cosmetic work as I wanted to look my best for my marriage a few months ago. Not only did he explain every stage of the plan but he listened carefully to what I wanted or thought I wanted and adapted accordingly. His cosmetic work was superb and the other work that he did on dentistry that was failing was the best I have ever experienced. He has an engineering background as well as being a very experienced dentist; moreover, he explains extremely well and clearly works to the highest standard. The support staff are also very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend Dr Vahid as highly as possible.

CAN EVERYBODY TOLERATE FALSE TEETH?

No every individual can tolerate a foreign body in their mouth no mater. What type of material it has. Statistically there is 50% chance that someone whom has never had a denture before, they would not be able to tolerate dentures or false teeth.

This is only for dentures that are removable and can be taken out of the mouth. Tolerance rate is different with devices that are not removable and are fixed, like crowns, bridges and implants.
