Dentures in Northampton

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are detachable appliances designed as replacements for lost teeth. They can be created using prosthetic or artificial teeth attached to a structure that makes them removable. Dentures provide an effective way of replacing missing teeth as they are less costly than bridges or dental implants.

Dentures allow individuals to maximize oral function. This means that you can communicate better. Dentures can also return your mouth and cheek to their original look, thus restoring your smile and promoting a youthful appearance. Modern dentures are made with natural-looking and more advanced materials.

What to Expect When Getting Fitted for Dentures

Consultation

When you visit your dentist in Northampton, our dentists will perform an oral assessment and scan your teeth to determine if dentures suit you. We will also take you through the steps, explain what to expect, and give you the advice you need to stay comfortable throughout the process.

Impression

We will take molds of your mouth to design a denture personalized for you. The mold is then taken to a laboratory, where a “try-in” denture is made from wax. The “try-in” dentures will fit you well before the actual dentures are finished.

Fitting

Your dentures are fitted, and we will give you instructions on how to maintain them. We will then ask you to highlight any sore spots to create room for minor adjustments.
