Dentures in Dunfermline

Dentures are acrylic prosthetic devices made of replacement artificial teeth.

Dentures are prosthetic devices made of acrylic and act as a replacement for real teeth. The artificial teeth are attached to a pink denture base and carefully designed to comfortably fit the contours of your mouth. Dentures are used by patients wishing to replace missing or extracted teeth to restore normal mouth function, and improve the quality of life by allowing you to perform basic functions such as biting into an apple.

What type of Dentures do you offer at The Linden Tree?

We offer partial and complete dentures. These are designed to replace a few missing teeth within an arch or a full set of teeth on either arch. Dentures can be fixed or removable depending on the type denture base chosen. If an acrylic base is used dentures can be moved. Alternatively they can be fixed if attached to Dental Implants.

How do I clean my dentures?

Our dentists will take an impression of your mouth which is then sent on to a lab. Your teeth moulds are then used to create dentures to fit your oral specifications. Dentures should be cleaned like normal teeth to remove plaque, so that tartar build-up doesn’t cause infection in the mouth. When a patient receives their custom-made dentures, the dentist provides them with guidance on how best to care for their dentures for optimal wear.

Poorly designed dentures can cause the following – at The Linden Tree, we work hard to offer you high quality Dentures:

  • They can cause irritation of the gums.
  • Cause gagging and increased salivation.
  • Affect your speech
  • Affect your ability to eat
  • Can shrink and slide

Why would dentures be good for me?

Many of our patients benefit from wearing dentures that when fitted correctly, can provide comfort for years. Dentures can improve your ability to eat, chew and speak clearly.
