Dentures

Our dental surgery in Lewisham provides high-quality dentures to patients wishing to replace missing, loose, or damaged teeth. Dentures are made from an acrylic base that looks like natural gum, with porcelain or acrylic teeth attached.

The benefits of dentures

  • Improves self-esteem and quality of life
  • Affordable and long-lasting replacement teeth
  • Feels secure and comfortable
  • Prevents bone loss and preserves facial structure
  • Corrects bite and aids digestion
  • Softens wrinkles and restores lost lip-support

The 2 types of dentures

  • Bar-retained dentures
    Your cosmetic dentist in Lewisham will place two to five implants in the jawbone. A curved metal bar is attached to the implants. The bar is used to secure the denture in place.
  • Ball-retained dentures
    Implants are fixed in the jawbone with ball-shaped metal pieces attached -- the denture fits into the metal pieces.

Am I a suitable candidate?

Dentures are a great option for anyone missing (or soon-to-be missing) all or most of their teeth. In order to benefit from dentures, you must have a strong enough jawbone to support the implants. A bone graft may be necessary to build up the jawbone before the implants can be fitted.

At your consultation, your skilled and experienced dentist in Lewisham will determine whether dentures are right for you.

What can I expect during treatment?

You will have a consultation at our dental clinic in Lewisham to determine your suitability for dentures. The procedure will be carried out under local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain. You may also be given a sedative to help to you relax. The implants will be placed in the jawbone at the front of your mouth, followed by a temporary set of teeth. Your mouth must then be left to heal for at least four to six months. Once your mouth has recovered, your private dentist in Lewisham will fit your permanent dentures.

How do I look after my dentures?

It’s important to brush your teeth after meals, and floss once a day to keep your bridge clean and free from bacteria. You must also visit our dental practice in Lewisham for regular checkups to ensure your bridge remains in good condition. Are you ready to restore your smile with dentures in Lewisham?
