Replacement Dentures

Posted by MichealH Alexander on February 24th, 2021

As we age natural changes occur in our gums and jaw over time. Gradually the bone beneath the gums begins to shrink meaning your dentures no longer fit like they used to. Loose, worn dentures can cause pain and discomfort and will cause you to bite incorrectly leading to jaw problems which can be difficult to correct if left untreated.

Our experienced clinical dental prosthetists are experts in identifying and correcting your denture problems. We are committed to working with you to deliver the best fitting, most aesthetically pleasing dentures which function as close as possible to your natural teeth. To this end we use the latest materials and techniques available with no short cuts. Dentures Christchurch
