It can be moulded to fit your teeth comfortably and are secured in place by your natural teeth or by dental implants.
Partial dentures can be the perfect solution for you if you still have healthy bone tissue and are looking for a budget-conscious option.

You might be a good candidate for complete dentures if you have experienced bone loss, periodontal disease or tooth decay.
Implant supported dentures are an alternative to traditional dentures.
They are an option for a patient who has experienced tooth loss due to injuries, periodontal disease or ageing.
While a traditional denture rests on your gum, implant-retained dentures are connected to a patient’s jaw for stability while eating and comfort.
Many of our patients choose implant-supported dentures as they can improve chewing strength and reduce sore spots.
The added support allows the denture to mimic their natural chewing function.
