Rejuvenate your smile!


Sometimes, despite our best efforts, teeth get lost through gum disease, injury or decay.

When this happens it can be devastating to your looks, your confidence and your overall health.

Replacing your missing teeth with dentures not only restores your smile but can make it easier to eat and speak and will support sagging facial muscle for a younger appearance.

By definition, a denture is a removable aesthetic tooth replacement prosthesis used to replace missing teeth.

Commonly referred to as ‘false teeth’, a denture is usually made of acrylic, a combination of acrylic and metal or a new flexible acrylic. 

A partial denture is fitted to replace some missing teeth whilst a complete denture is indicated when all-natural teeth are missing.

How it works

Depending on the complexity, the number of teeth missing, the current state of your mouth and jaw, the time it will take to fit you with a set of dentures will vary.

To ensure your denture is as comfortable as possible, your Castlebawn dentist will take impressions of your mouth and make precise measurements which will be used to custom build your dentures.

Yes, your new dentures will likely feel somewhat out of place when you first put them in your mouth. It may take several days or even a few weeks before you get completely used to them.

For example, eating will take a little getting used to but you will soon be back to your normal diet.

New dentures may also alter your speech for a short amount of time. Pronouncing certain words may require practice but reading out loud and repeating troublesome words will speed up the adaptation process.

The good news is that once you’ve gotten accustomed to them, your new dentures could transform your life.

Taking care of your new dentures

Even though your new set of dentures won’t decay or suffer from cavities you will still need to look after them and follow a good oral health routine.

Every night before you go to sleep you will need to remove, clean and store them properly so your gums and jawbones have a chance to relax and “breathe”.

All of our denture patients are shown an easy hygiene routine that involves brushing your gums, palate and tongue gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush to stimulate circulation before putting your dentures in for the day.

What to expect

You may experience an increase in salivary flow when the dentures are first inserted. This is a natural response of the salivary glands that will return to normal after a few weeks.

Minor irritation caused by surface irregularities or pressure spots is quite common. Your dentist will relieve any discomfort by adjusting the denture surface. If the irritation is very painful, we recommend you stop wearing the denture and consult your dentist immediately.
