Dentures are removable artificial teeth that replace missing natural teeth and restore your smile. Dentures can also improve your ability to chew and speak, support your facial muscles and prevent sagging. At Borstal Gate Dental Practice, we offer a range of denture services to our clients in Tipperary, including:
These are used when all your natural teeth are missing or extracted. Full dentures are custom-made to fit your gums and match the appearance of your natural teeth.
These are used when you still have some of your natural teeth remaining. Partial dentures are attached to a metal or acrylic base that clips onto your existing teeth. They fill in the gaps and prevent your natural teeth from shifting.
These dentures are a more stable and comfortable option for replacing missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures are attached to titanium posts surgically placed into your jawbone. They do not slip or move and feel more like natural teeth.

If you are interested in getting dentures, we will thoroughly examine your mouth and discuss your options with you. We will take impressions of your gums and teeth and send them to a dental laboratory, where your dentures will be made. We will then fit and adjust your dentures to ensure they are comfortable and functional.
Dentures can improve your quality of life and boost your confidence. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn how we can help you achieve a beautiful smile with dentures.
How do you clean dentures?
Make it a daily routine to take out and delicately cleanse your dentures. Soak and brush them using a soft-bristled brush and a nonabrasive denture cleanser to eliminate food, plaque, and other buildup. For those using denture adhesive, clean the grooves that snugly fit against your gums to eliminate any leftover glue.
How long do dentures last?
Crafted from durable materials, dentures are designed to withstand wear and tear. They typically last five to ten years with proper care and a secure fit. However, you might notice the need for adjustments or repairs to ensure an optimal fit as time passes.
