Whole Mouth Care

Make sure to book a consultation with your dental prosthetist every six months. Mouths should be sighted by an experienced dental prosthetist to make sure mouth tissues are healthy and that your dentures are fitting and functioning well. This is extremely important for the whole mouth health and for your safety. Diabetics are more at risk of an unhealthy mouth.

Question: Is it realistically possible to eat socially with a full lower denture or are implants the only option?


1. Is possible to have an upper denture made of metal frame + resin?
2. What is roughly the price range for an upper denture made of metal frame + resin and how much for an upper denture made of resin only?
3. How many years approx can an upper denture made of metal frame + resin be used and how long can an upper denture made of resin be used?
