Dentures / Mouthguards / Splints


A denture is a prosthetic device made to replicate and fill the space of a missing tooth or teeth that have fallen out or been extracted. Additionally, dentures also replace the surrounding tissues of these missing teeth. Dentures can be made to replicate either some or all of the teeth in a person’s mouth. Typically, dentures are made for patients to feel comfortable with their smile and to make the processes of eating, drinking and talking easier which, in turn, improves your quality of life. Dentures come in various types. The process of creating and installing dentures occurs typically within a series of visits. These visits involve taking initial impressions, creating a model of the mouth and try-in appointments prior to the insertion and fitting of the denture. This is to guarantee you receive the best denture we can supply.

Here at Taigum Dental Team, we offer both partial and full dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth in a person’s mouth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some teeth are still present. Depending on your case, we will suggest which option is most suitable for you. We use different materials ranging from Valplast, Chrome and Acrylic to suit a variety of needs.


Here at Taigum Dental Team, we create custom-made mouthguards! These mouthguards are worn as a protective, removable dental appliance that is worn over the teeth and gums. This device protects its wearer by absorbing and redistributing the force of impact when playing sports or undergoing physical activity. Our mouthguards come in many different designs for each patient to choose from. Getting your own custom-made mouthguard only takes two appointments!


A splint, also known as a nightguard, is a removable dental appliance which is used to stabilise and protect your teeth. Splints are commonly used for the treatment of bruxism (grinding of the teeth) and TMJ disorders. A splint helps to reduce the pressure on your teeth and jaw, whilst also preventing further damage to your teeth and their surrounding tissues. The process of obtaining a splint occurs in two appointments. Your first appointment will be to take impressions of your teeth, and your second appointment is to insert the splint and ensure that the fit is perfect.
