If you have been considering if conventional dentures are right for you, you’ve come to the right place. We here at Manningham Dental Specialists specialise in conventional dentures along with a vast array of other general and specialty dental procedures. Following we will discuss what conventional dentures are, their advantages and disadvantages to help you decide if they may be the right option for you.


Conventional dentures are removable plates, for both the upper and the lower jaw, supporting a full new complement of teeth. They are made from dental materials and once properly fitted in place, look natural and pleasant.

For those who have lost most or all their teeth chewing can become extremely difficult and they may have no option but to give up consuming numerous foods. Conventional dentures can help them to enjoy eating a wider variety of foods again by allowing for the same chewing as a full set of natural teeth. They can also provide a confidence boost from an aesthetic perspective.


For patients with absolutely no teeth, conventional dentures are the easiest and most budget friendly tooth replacement option available. They are also easy to care for and as they are more budget friendly, if they are lost or damaged will not be such a large financial burden to have repaired or replace.


The lower jaw denture does not have the best stability or retention and can come loose, requiring the patient to use their tongue to keep it secure in place. However, this issue can be aided using dental implants which can help to better secure the denture.
