Denture

Dentures are removable plates or frames holding one or more artificial teeth. They are made of different materials, most often plastic (acrylic) or a combination of plastic and metal (cobalt chromium).

Alternatively The GiGi can also offer flexible dentures that are softer than the traditional plastic. The innovation of the biocompatible flexible material allows the dentures to adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth.

Two types of Dentures

We can divide Dentures in two basic types:
• Partial dentures: if you have lost some of your teeth
• Complete/Full dentures: if you have lost either all your upper or lower teeth
Fabrication usually takes a few visits. During one of first visits, the dentist will make a mould of the teeth to be sent to a dental laboratory.
Once the laboratory has done the shaping, you will be asked to return to the clinic for “trying-in” and this process can be repeated until we reach a perfect fit.
Dentures tend to accelerate bone loss which makes dentures wearing more uncomfortable in later years. It is recommended that dentures should be replaced every 3-5 years and it is also a good idea to have regular check-ups.
