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 received outstanding care (as an NHS and a private patient) from all the staff at this dental practice and can’t thank them enough. They are a professional and extremely caring team - even phoning me to check on my well- being after a procedure. I wish I’d discovered Brickfields much sooner - I would not have the dental problems I have had to live with for much of my life, but I’m so happy to know I’m in safe and professional hands now. My gum health has improved so much and other issues are in the process of being cared for.Thank you to this amazing team!

For a very nervous patient I was really apprehensive to go through substantial dental cosmetic treatment. I did not need to worry as everyone treated me with care and consideration. Amit was superb with his patience and professionalism, as was his nurse.. I’m sorry I didn’t know your name! The end result couldn’t have been better and I now have the smile that I have always wanted. Thank you to everyone at Brickfields… you have all been fantastic!

I had an appointment with Rohip and Zoe today as I needed to have impressions made.I was very nervous over this because I have a very sensitive gag reflex. Rohip and Zoe made me feel comfortable and immediately put my fears to rest and said I could have a scan instead.I felt at ease and in good hands. Rohip was very professional, explained everything to me at every step. I felt like he was looking after my best interests and didn’t want me to worry.Zoe also could see I was nervous and began having a conversation with me which calmed me down. I relaxed and of course the procedure was over before I knew it. I’ve been on a bit of journey with several trips to the dentist, Rohip referred me to the specialist in the first place and he has continued to support me and I have no doubt in my mind this will continue. I’m in good hands.Thanks for today Rohip and Zoe. I’m extremely grateful.Kind regardsRob

I always have a pleasant experience when visiting Brickfields Dental. All of the staff are professional, friendly and always happy to help.Most recently I have been having treatment with Rohit with Erin assisting him. They have both been absolutely amazing.Rohit did a filling for me a few weeks ago and I can honestly say it is the best filling I have ever had. It doesn’t feel like a filling at all. It looks and feels like a real tooth. Rohit always talks me through the process and makes me feel at ease. He is an amazing dentist.Thank you Rohit and Erin for your amazing work and for being so professional and helpful.9th December 2021Another huge thank you to Rohit who fitted a crown for me today. I’m so impressed, it looks and feels amazing.Such a professional dentist who clearly takes pride in all of his work.Thank you Rohit!

Was very worried to have orthodontic treatment at the age of 39 but the friendly staff and the amazing dentist TC has changed my smile already and it’s not even finished. TC removed 3 wisdom teeth as part of ongoing treatment and I didn’t feel a thing. Really helpful ladies on reception a really lovely practice thank you 😊

Very glad to have found this dental practice. They have been attentive to my various dental problems and treated them well. Practice is clean and Covid compliant. The receptionists are lovely as are the dental nurses who held my hand on more than one occasion (as I am not the bravest of patients). Dentist himself was very professional and knew straight away what needed doing and kept me informed throughoutIn all very happy dental patient and can now smile with confidence. Thank you to you all

I have just completed implant surgery and once again I cannot fault this practice. TC, the owner and my dentist today, is a highly competent professional, who is a perfectionist and someone who his staff say would trust him with their lives, you can’t get better praise than that. On this occasion, even the initial local anaesthetic was pain free.The receptionists are always very professional, friendly and very competent. I cannot praise this practice enough. Highly recommended.

Very disappointed that no time was given for the lidocaine to work before they tried to pull a tooth. Sure that’s not normal practice, staff really nice, good clean practice.

An excellent dental practice with amazing staff. I can’t say enough good things about the practice. If you’re a new patient try and get Dr Amit Patel, he’s my dentist and what a dentist he is and he’s an amazing person he is too.

After not going to the dentist for over 10 years, having had a bad experience, I was extremely nervous and anxious. All the staff are amazing from the reception ladies through to the dentist, they explained and reassured me about everything they are doing. My treatment is on going through the next month and I have no concerns. Definitely recommend
