There’s More Than One Way to Restore Your Smile With Dentures
Dentures are a great way of replacing missing teeth and restoring functionality, but it’s not uncommon for false teeth to look like what they are – false! All too often they’re uncomfortable to wear, difficult to eat with, and make your gums and cheeks sore. It’s little wonder then that many denture wearers feel miserable and shy away from social occasions. If this resonates with you, then we can help. Our dentures not only feel comfortable but look attractive and natural too. As a result you’ll find both your smile and your confidence return in no time at all.
Choosing your dentures
When it comes to choosing dentures then we have a variety of options to suit both your lifestyle and budget. The cost varies depending on the type of denture you choose, the materials used, and the length and complexity of the treatment involved.
Our range of dentures includes the following:
Full dentures – Also known as complete dentures they’re designed for individuals who have lost all of their teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. They’ll transform your face instantly, since they give the face the support that it has been missing, making you look years younger.
Partial dentures – Carefully shaped and color matched to your existing teeth, partial dentures fill in the gaps where teeth are missing to restore your smile seamlessly and beautifully. Hidden wires are often used to attach them to the adjacent teeth.
Implant retained dentures – This refers to dentures which are held in place by a few strategically placed dental implants in the jawbone. The dentures are held securely by the implants to prevent them from slipping and sliding in the mouth.
Flexible dentures – As their name suggests, these dentures “flex” into position using discreet tooth colored clasps and without the need for fixatives or metal clips to hold them in place. They’re a good alternative for people who are unable to benefit from implant retained dentures due to having insufficient bone in which to place the implant.
Immediate dentures – If you’re facing tooth extraction but can’t bear the thought of being without teeth for any period of time, then immediate dentures may be a good fit for you. Basically the treatment involves you being fitted with a natural looking temporary denture on the same day that your teeth are removed, so you can walk out of the clinic smiling. You’ll wear this while your gums heal and your permanent dentures are fabricated.
Reasons to wear dentures
Not only do missing teeth make your smile unsightly but you may find that your speech becomes less clear and your facial structures can sag, adding years to your appearance. Aside from aesthetics more importantly when teeth are missing, those teeth on either side of the gap start to gravitate towards the space. This makes it harder to clean your teeth and particles of food often get trapped, which can lead to tooth decay, and in more serious cases further tooth loss.
