Definitive Dentures Here In the Centre of Leeds

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

2797271_blogWe offer light, comfortable and natural looking dentures, right here in the heart of Leeds. Our dentures are a long way from the bulky sets of false teeth of yesteryear and we can help to restore your smile, as well as your confidence, whether you are missing a few teeth or a whole arch of teeth.

Dentures have been used to replace natural teeth for a long time and they have come on along way in terms of design, fit and functionality since the earlier days of denture treatment. Now, patients can enjoy a comfortable fit and a really lifelike prosthesis, which enables them to smile with confidence and eat a varied and healthy diet without worrying that their denture will slip.

All our dentures are custom-made using the best materials around and we recommend regular checks so that we can keep tabs on the fit of the denture and check that you are still finding your denture comfortable. The contours of your mouth change constantly and this means that denture will eventually start to come loose; if the denture doesn’t fit properly, this can result in soreness and the gums can start to become irritated. Our checks enable us to spot any issues before you start to feel the effects and when we feel the time is right, we will recommend replacing the denture with a new one.

Fitting and maintaining dentures

Once we have created an impression of your mouth and your denture is ready to fit, we will place it in your mouth and check that you are happy with the fit. We will then explain how to keep your denture clean and where to store it. It may feel slightly odd at first to wear a denture, but you will soon get used to it and you should find your denture very comfortable.

Fixed Dentures And Mini Implants Work To Improve Your Lifestyle

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

Grandparent and daughterFor patients with missing teeth, we provide a wide range of treatment options, including mini dental implants and fixed dentures. With mini implants, problems associated with dentures are a thing of the past and you can look forward to complete peace of mind, as well as an amazing new smile.

Mini dental implants are essentially smaller versions of traditional dental implants and they are suitable for patients who cannot tolerate larger implants due to a lack of bone tissue. Mini implants can be placed in a procedure, which is less invasive than traditional dental implants and they can be attached to fixed dentures. We can offer local anaesthetic or sedation for this procedure and we will do everything we can to make you comfortable. The heads of the implants are exposed and this means that the denture can be fitted straightaway.

With implants, dentures are much more stable and secure and there is no risk of a denture slipping or sliding out of position. Implants also provide improved bite power and this means that you can enjoy a wider range of foods and eat with the reassurance that your denture won’t slip.

Dental implants are an increasingly popular option for patients with missing teeth and they provide a whole host of benefits. To find out if you could be the next patient to enjoy all these benefits in the heart of Leeds, call into the clinic or telephone us to make an appointment.

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

iStock_000001998629XSmallNow if you were to be honest, the thought of wearing dentures after tooth loss may not appeal to you; but you may not have an option if you want to maintain your future oral health in central Leeds because you will be saving wear and tear to your jaws.

Things have changed so much with the design of dentures, the materials they are made from, the cements that are used, mini-implants- all have helped to stabilise them in the mouth far better than ever before, and with comfort in mind. Another bonus to dentures, especially partial ones is that they are easy to manage and maintain, as well as being a cheaper alternative to other ways of getting over tooth loss. Losing teeth will always be traumatising, but you don’t need to be fearful of wearing dentures, in fact, you should embrace them because once you have looked into the option, you may be pleasantly surprised by what you discover.

How Dentures work for you in Central Leeds

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

It is pretty safe to say that anything that you have done at the dentists, from braces to cosmetic procedures such as crowns, every treatment veers towards protecting one thing- your occlusion (bite). This is how your jaws come together and as long as this is kept true, it will save you from more dangerous conditions developing all over your upper body. It is also why you should have a tooth/teeth replaced if lost. Dentures have been around in central Leeds for decades and although they haven’t had the best of press over the years, they do a job. However they have gone through quite a renaissance of late and dare it be said, are coming back in vogue again. This is because better treatments of gum disease has reduced tooth loss so that now, people are opting for cheap, great looking partial dentures as opposed to other options; they are easy to manage and they are really low maintenance- they also bond to the mouth and surrounding teeth very well indeed. Full dentures too have had a makeover: more superior, natural-looking materials, better adhesives and the mini-implant have made full dentures much easier and more reliable to wear. Tooth loss is never easy and can be quite tough to handle, but it is lovely to know that dentures are an option, are very viable, cheap and a quick way of overcoming the problem.


Taking a look at Dentures in Leeds

Friday, March 1st, 2013

It is very easy to be damning about dentures, even more horrifying the thought of having to wear them; but then, they haven’t had a good track record up until recently in Leeds: they weren’t portrayed in a good light. Yet they are very much back in vogue and there are two major reasons for this. The first is that less and less people are having to wear full dentures because of the way dentists treat gum and periodontal disease; dentists today are more excited about saving teeth, rather than pulling them at the merest hint of trouble. Hence there has been a massive rise in the number of people opting for chic, easy-to-wear partial dentures, after all, they are easy to manage and a lot cheaper than implants and bridges. The second reason is the way modern dentures are manufactured and the adhesives used to keep them in the mouth. They are softer and natural looking so when they are in the mouth, they adhere better and look better, and with the adhesives, they’ll stay put. There is a remarkable irony to those who wear dentures today though: dental implants were meant to be the modern day saviour to tooth loss and consign dentures to history. So it is remarkable that they are being used to help keep full dentures in the mouth far better than ever before. If you have suffered any form of tooth loss, maybe you should give dentures a second look.


The benefits of fitting yourself out with Dentures in Central Leeds

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

It is the way that modern dentistry deals with such problems like gum and periodontal disease that has seen far less tooth loss in people. Coupled with this, there has been a big effort to make dentures more wearer friendly; not only by making them look natural, but by making them out of softer materials that cling better to the mouth. Both combinations have led to a big increase in people choosing partial dentures in central Leeds: they are easy to wear and remove at the end of the day, and they are a fraction in price compared to dental implants and bridges. Dare it be said- dentures have turned their fortunes around and become trendy to wear. Full dentures however always were a problem. Yes you need them to replace your teeth, to protect your bite and stop the sagging of your face, but being ill fitting, they often fell out, which was always the bane of the wearer; they also looked fake. Again though, a lot of thought has gone into the development of modern dentures, again from the materials they are made from, new and better cements to glue them in with and the development of the mini-implant that helps lock the denture firmly into the mouth. Of course, it would be better to never have to wear dentures, but if you have to, then you can rest easy that dentures have never been better to wear.

Dishing out the Dentures in the City of Leeds

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

When something has suffered a lot of bad press over the years, it can be difficult to convince people otherwise. Dentures have been wrung through this mangle and have taken a lot of flack over the years. But for all their faults of being ill fitting and essentially looking, well fake, dentures help to retain the shape of your face and control the bite of your mouth. So then, we get right up to date and things have changed awfully for people about to embark on a life of dentures in the city ofLeeds. The materials that dentures are made from now are softer and more subtle, and stick to the mouth better. Cements have improved, but it is the fact that dentures are now used with dental implants that offer the wearer a freedom never heard of before. But aside from the idea of full dentures, the treatment of gum and periodontal disease has seen a rise in teeth being saved and kept in the mouth, which in turn has seen a rise in people wearing partial dentures, which are so much cheaper than a dental implant or bridge. So, before you write off dentures altogether, you should do some research first and find out exactly what is out there on offer.

Looking good with Dentures in Leeds

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

There may come a time for some of us in Leeds when we’ll have to bite the bullet and have dentures fitted and it may feel for some people, that you have placed one foot firmly in the grave, but that is possibly borne out of ignorance because what you may have thought of as dentures as a youngster has changed radically to what is now, now you have to have them fitted. The philosophy of dentists who’d rather save teeth than pull them, the effort in design and the materials that they are manufactured from have altered dramatically. It’s the desire of dentists to save teeth that has seen an incredible rise in partial dentures being used, as having teeth to anchor too helps the denture stay in the mouth better- which psychologically gives the wearer some feeling that old age hasn’t arrived just yet. The materials used are softer and adhere to the mouth better: they also look more natural. And when it comes to keeping them in the mouth, adhesives have improved greatly and combined with the fitting of mini dental implants, they lock partial and full dentures into place so tightly, it gives much more freedom to the wearer. From a health angle, wearing dentures also prevents the face sagging and stops the jaw joint from being damaged. Dentures are dashing, dentures are great, so get with the programme and have a look at what’s on offer- you will be impressed.

Dealing with Dentures in Central Leeds

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Tooth loss at best is a soul destroying and for many people in Central Leeds, the beginning of the end of your lives. But, if you take a step back and try to take a positive angle on dentures (which is where you could be heading with tooth loss), they really aren’t that bad at all. For a start, they are easy to manage, you just pop them in and out whenever you fancy, you have no more inflated dental bills and by having them fitted, you will prevent your face from sagging, ageing, and retain the health of the ‘bite’ in your mouth. What’s more, dentures have come an awful long way since the ‘Mickey Mouse’ ones that your grandparents may have worn. Everything has changed since then and with the technology around for dentists to use, the idea now is to save teeth, as opposed to pulling them at the first signs of trouble- as in the bad old days, which is why there has been a dramatic rise in the amount of people that wear partial dentures. The way dentures are manufactured has also changed: softer, more natural looking materials adhere to the mouth better, especially when used in conjunction with the incredible fixing cements available today. Full dentures have also been given a new lease of life thanks to the dental implant that can help fix the dentures into place more securely than ever before. So, you should no longer see dentures as the beginning of the end, more the start of a new adventure.
