If you have a missing or damaged tooth, you may need a denture, crown or bridge to either replace or fill a missing gap. You should replace the gap to enhance appearance but also to prevent strain on tooth at either side which may shift significantly.
We provide two types of dentures at Smith & Jain, complete and partial dentures.
The patient will require complete dentures when all teeth within a jaw have been lost and prosthetically replaced. The denture is a removable appliance made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. Most of the time we also place implants to support the dentures.
A partial denture will be provided if you have one or more teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. A partial denture fill will prevent other teeth from changing position. Partial dentures are removable and natural looking appliances to help you restore the form and function of your jaw. These partial dentures can be made up of plastic or metal with plastic.
