Dentures

You only have one set of teeth and gums so it’s important to ensure they remain as healthy as possible.



At TiggaSmile, we know the key to positive oral health is good dental hygiene. Let us help you to take care of your teeth and gums Dental hygiene starts at home. Brushing twice daily and flossing as often as possible is essential to maintain good levels of dental hygiene. So, at TiggaSmile, we always recommend you come and see us for regular check-ups as well as seeing one of our experienced hygienists to get your teeth as clean as possible.

Not looking after your teeth or gums properly can cause a multitude of problems including:

  • Build-up of plaque on the teeth and gums
  • Decay causing cavities in the teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease

Dentures

Where people have lost multiple teeth or all of their upper or lower teeth, removable dentures may provide a long-lasting alternative.

Designed to look like natural teeth and gums, a denture appliance blends in with the remaining natural teeth or completely replaces the upper or lower set. Dentures restore facial shape and function for those who have experienced tooth loss.

The treatment

They are removable and convenient to clean and are worn by people of all ages. Depending on the extent of tooth loss, you may require a full denture (for the entire set of upper or lower teeth) or a partial denture (for only the teeth that are missing). At TiggaSmile, we will discuss what the most suitable option is for you. Creating the right set of dentures for you takes place over a number of appointments to ensure that your appliance suits your needs and fits properly.

We also offer patients dentures that are held in place by implants to make them more secure. ​​​​​​​

We will show you how to use your denture, how to apply denture adhesive as well as how to look after your appliance. If you are a denture wearer and are having problems with the way your denture fits, we can help to adjust this issue and help you feel more comfortable.
