Dentures

A removable solution to missing teeth in Chelmsford

Dentures are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth. At Brickfields Dental Care, we aim to provide you with a completed smile that is functional, natural-looking, and comfortable.

Through our range of metal and acrylic immediate or complete denture options, our Essex dentists can give you the ability to eat what you want and speak with confidence whilst maintaining great oral health.

We offer a complete range of dentures to suit differing needs and budgets

Metal dentures

Metal dentures are used to replace several missing teeth, are constructed from very strong Cobalt-Chromium or Titanium material and are secured to the remaining, healthy teeth with either metal or tooth coloured clasps.

Metal dentures are built to match the mouths existing tissue and are made from medical-grade alloys so are hypoallergenic and offer a degree of flexibility for a very comfortable feel.

Acrylic dentures

Acrylic dentures are easier to fit and less expensive than their metal counterparts.

These dentures are perfect for the patient looking to replace a small number of teeth but perhaps will need additions at a later date.

Immediate dentures

These dentures can be fitted at the initial appointment with your Brickfields Dental Care dentist immediately following the extraction of dead or badly damaged teeth, allowing the gum to heal underneath.

You will leave our Chelmsford practice with a complete smile on the same day as your first appointment!

Complete dentures

For elderly patients or patients who have lost all of their upper and lower teeth, our bespoke, complete dentures offer a comfortable and natural-looking tooth replacement solution.

This type of denture will improve facial shape by defining the jawline and give you back your confidence in your appearance.

Here at Brickfields Dental Practice, we make a point of counselling our patients before treatment so that prolonged dental issues are addressed and that we can discuss the most suitable course of action. We welcome carers and family members to attend to help make those who are very elderly or confused, as comfortable as possible throughout the treatment process.

The denture fitting process at Brickfields Dental Care:

  • You will have an initial assessment with your skilled Brickfields Dental Care dentist to determine which type of denture is right for you
  • An impression of your teeth and gums will be taken and sent to the dental lab for your custom-made denture to be made – this can take up to several weeks
  • Once the dentures have been fitted and adjusted for custom, we will ask you to return for a comprehensive review a few days later

FAQs

How do I clean my dentures?

Dentures are quite delicate so extra care should be taken when removing or inserting them. Similar to your usual oral hygiene routine, your dentures will require daily brushing to remove plaque and staining.

At night or during long periods of sleep, we advise removing your dentures to allow the soft gum tissue underneath to recover. Whilst removed, it is vital that patients also clean their tongue, palate, and gums with a soft-bristled brush.

Are complete dentures a permanent solution?

On average, your dentures should last between 5-10 years but may need relining or rebasing during that time. The dimensions and shape of the mouth itself are constantly changing and a regular check-up is advised on an annual basis.

I have just completed root canal treatment and I cannot fault the highly competent dentist Mitul, who completed the procedure, and Toni who assisted. The atmosphere was extremely professional and the rapport between Mitul and Toni was great which made for an easy atmosphere and consequently put any nerves at ease. The procedure was as pleasant as root canal treatment can be and apart from the initial numbing injection, was completely pain free.I would also like to add that the Covid procedures at Brickfields are excellent and you feel safe at all times.

Have had a lot of appointments with Rohit & Erin, they've made me feel really comfortable and when having a wisdom tooth out helped me feel at ease when they could see I was really nervous. Really happy with the service they have provided and would recommend
