Sometimes the loss of teeth can be overwhelming and cause highly stressful emotions and anxiety. People can lose all or some of their teeth through trauma, tooth decay and hygiene. The result of losing your teeth can lead to confidence issues and can affect your social life. Dentures act as a removable replacement for those wishing to find a fix for their missing teeth. There are a number of different types of dentures out there but the basic principles have been in use over many years now. Although today there are alternatives to dentures, some patients still prefer them for a number of reasons. Even if a person has not lost all their teeth it is still possible to create a partial denture that will blend in along with the remaining teeth. The fitting of dentures can even prevent further tooth loss. Dentures can be manufactured using a wide array of materials – at Hampshire Dentists, Southampton, your dentist will be able to advise you on which is best suited for your case.

How Are They Fitted?


Your dentist will assess the situation to see if you are suitable for dentures and how to approach it. Upon the initial examination, the dentist may decide that it is necessary to remove other teeth to allow the dentures to fit and work correctly. It is also possible that the dentist may advise you on some hygiene treatment on the gums to make sure they are up to a good standard for the procedure to work well. A mould will be taken of your mouth that will then go to a dental technician. The dentures will be made to the requirements of the individual. The teeth and gum colour will match those of the patient and the contours of the denture will fit inside the mouth perfectly.

Are They Stable?

The natural suction force within the mouth should keep the dentures in place. However, sometimes they may come loose while eating; for this, there are a number of fixing gels and creams that are available. Also, if this is the case, there is the option of using implants to stabilise your dentures.

I love my dentist now!
I am a very nervous patient and I haven’t had much luck with dentists in the past. so I was apprehensive joining this new surgery. However from my first conversations with the lovely receptionists to my most recent treatment, I have had great service. Every time I leave with a smile, I can honestly say that I am no longer scared of visiting the dentist.

The entire team from the Dentists to the receptionists are exceptional within this practice. My 10 year old Daughter is currently undergoing some extreme orthodontic treatment and the team really do go the extra mile to make her feel at ease and comfortable during our monthly visits. Andrea our Orthodontist is a genius and we can’t believe the difference to our daughters teeth over such a short period of time. Our Daughter was so self-conscious about her smile and lost all confidence, she has now been transformed into a smiling social butterfly. Thank you so much !

I saw Dr Rob Hanna for my checkup this afternoon and was very impressed from the moment I arrived.
Very professional and thorough throughout my appointment. Everything was explained and I was made to feel at ease from start to finish.
As soon as I finished my dental checkup I was seen by Charlotte my hygienist. Once again my appointment was professional and thorough and I came away very impressed with my treatment and the way I was looked after.
Would recommend Hampshire Dentists to anybody that was looking for a dentist.

Thanks to Cadge and Marius I walked into the surgery with no fear or worry this morning. I am usually terrified of visiting the dentist but here I know I will be treated properly and pain free. On my last visit they made me feel so welcome and reassured. Today Cadge was is high spirits and dressed as an Elf which added to the atmosphere. I left feeling relaxed and happy.

Dr. Robin and the team do an excellent work. No pain, quick and effective. Not cheap though but when I was in pain, they gave me an appointment for the very next day and the job was done.
