We advise using dentures for when multiple teeth are missing or a lot of bone support has gone. Dentures are made by our skilled dental technicians and can be made out of solely plastic or a combination of metal and plastic to help with strength.
Dentures are removable for cleaning and we generally advise you remove them to sbatterseap. The gums underneath the denture still need to be kept healthy so we advise patients to still attend regular dental check ups.
I have been a patient for 21 years and have always seen Dr. Surrendra and I'm convinced that he is the best dentist. His treatments are always pain free and he explains everything in detail. I have recommended the practice to so many people at work and all of them have had a great experience.
Prior to when I started attending Battersea Preventive Dental Practice about eight years ago, I had for many years been to two leading London dental hospitals and, more recently, been treated by dentists at Regent's Park and in Harley Street. The standard of dentistry and treatment I have received at B.P.D.P. far exceeds anything in my previous experience.
I've found the reception staff friendly and helpful at all times, the phone service very quick and supportive (not always guaranteed at some places) and the dental care I'm receiving is patient, well-explained, consultative (I'm given the choices and given the chance to choice rather than just being imposed upon) and effective. I've made Battersea Preventive Dental Practice my dentist of choice.
Dentures are tailor-made to fit your mouth so they shouldn’t hurt although it may take some getting used to and you may feel slight discomfort for the first few months as your jaw bow and gums adjust to their new shape (if you had teeth extracted before getting your dentures fitted).
Dentures can last several years if well looked after. After a period of time we will need to take a new cast to make a new set of dentures as your jaw and gums gradually change shape as you get older. Our dentist will discuss all of this with you during your initial consultation.
We use the most cutting-edge technology to make our dentures resulting in a natural look. By taking precise measurements of your teeth and gums, we make sure the fit is perfect so you don’t need to worry about wobbly dentures.
Dentures can be removed for cleaning or you can clean your dentures as you would normal teeth, you just need to make sure you are gentle, particularly at first.
We recommend that you soak your dentures overnight in a fizzy dentures cleaning tablet to ensure any food particles are removed.
