All acrylic used to produce your dentures is Imported from the NETHERLANDS it is made by one of the most reputable dental manufactures VERTEX- DENTAL B.V.
At Affordable Dentures we use the latest impression materials; fast setting siliconís, which are pleasant tasting and with an easily controlled flow to make impression taking more comfortable for you. Our impression material is imported from SYBRONDENTAL SPECIALTIES, SWITZERLAND and consists of vinylpolisiloxanes that reproduces the exact oral anatomy for a superior fitting denture.
All our dentures are polymerized using a heated pressure packing method under immense force; this guarantees that the final product you receive is superiorly stronger and denser making it more resistant to breakage and distortion.
Removable partial dentures (RPD)
An acrylic partial denture is recommended as a temporary partial denture. If your remaining natural teeth have a poor prognosis but do not warrant extracting them all at once, the acrylic partial denture may be used to your advantage. With each natural tooth extraction, an artificial one can easily be incorporated into your existing RPD at a very reasonable cost. Its main disadvantages are that RPDís rest predominantly on the gum only, it is also thicker and covers a much larger area of the gum to maintain rigidity and strength.
The teeth and "gums" used in a chrome denture are no different from those used in acrylic dentures. However, chrome, being much stronger than acrylic, allows a slimmer and sleeker design of the denture base. Not only can the base be thinner, it can also cover a smaller area of the mouth. Higher accuracy also provides a better fit. It's not surprising that in most cases, chrome dentures are superior to their acrylic equivalents. If function and durability are what you want in a denture, then go straight for chrome dentures. Apart from its precision fit it interferes less with senses such as taste, and hot cold sensitivity.
Comfort soft liners
Occasionally, a patient finds that they cannot wear the denture because the gums are too tender, and keeps getting sore spots. In cases where the patient is unable to wear ordinary dentures because of tender gums, the denture can be relined with a material that remains soft. Long lasting resilient silicone base has supreme cushioning effect for tender gums.

How often do I need to replace dentures?
Generally speaking a new denture will not last you forever, and if your old ones are much over 7 years old, your mouth and face will have changed, your bone would have shrunk your teeth would be ground which causes your facial dimension to shrink, the plastic teeth are worn down and you bite is no longer correct.;
What is a reline and why I may need it?
A reline is a procedure used to re-fit the surface of a denture to a person's gum. This is done by placing a new acrylic base into the denture, duplicating the new form of the oral structures in the mouth. A reline can bring back suction, comfort, stability and discourage food from going under the denture.
Since your mouth and the dental ridges change or shrink over time, a denture reline is necessary to keep your denture fitting well and to prevent your dental ridges from "shrinking" more rapidly.
Reasons you may require a reline.
o Better fit, a relined denture "stays in better"
o A better fitting denture helps the dental ridges stay healthy
o Helps a denture last longer
o Helps with proper nutrition and health
o Maintain the original vertical dimension of the face as the gums continue shrinking.
How to clean denture most effectively?
Dentures should be brushed over a towel or a sink half-filled with water. Lightly brush the dentures with a soft nylon toothbrush or denture brush.
- Place dentures in a cleanser overnight or for at least 30 minutes daily. This will help to remove stains and help prevent mouth infections and mouth odours. After the dentures have been soaked remove all the cleanser by lightly brushing the dentures under cold running water.
- Massage the gums with a soft toothbrush for one minute once a day.
- See your practitioner if you find sore red areas, white patches, growths or if you experience burning sensations.
- See your practitioner regularly so your mouth can be checked and to check that the dentures fit correctly.
Patients completing dental treatment at affordable dentures receive an ultrasonic machine thatís aids in maintenance of the prosthesis. The energy produced by these machines penetrates areas that a brush cannot to remove foreign articles.
