But before you dismiss the idea altogether, you should sit down and do some research into modern dentures and how they work. 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.

Monday, September 10th, 2012

When you lose the odd tooth or two, even all of them, the future can start to look rather bleak for you in central Leeds and it can age your looks overnight. However, dentistry has answers to all your oral problems and this also goes for dentures. The technology that has gone into this area to counter tooth loss has been amazing, so you can take heart from the fact that help is around the corner. Modern dentures look very natural- whilst saving your look and the health of your mouth, so this option is at least worth a look. Partial dentures are so dainty, natural and fine fitting, these days, you and your friends would be pushed to notice any difference after tooth loss. Full dentures have also taken a leap of faith, being made from softer materials that stick to the mouth better and again, others would be hard pushed to notice a difference when they are in. History states though that keeping dentures in place could always be a problem but with these materials, great fixatives and dental implants, the fitting is so strong, you can carry on with your life as if you still had your natural teeth.






Choosing the Mini Implant in Central Leeds

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Mini-implants have become a bit of a celebrity in their own right in central Leeds although they came to be so through a stroke of fate.

They were only intended to be temporary, giving way later to their bigger brother, but it was soon discovered that they were quite useful themselves.

Firstly they are very easy to fit, (some dentists claim only 10 minutes) and they do the minimal of damage to the gums and jawbone, making them instantly available to use. One of the other advantages is that the jaw doesn’t require a bone graft, so this tiny titanium spike can be placed straight away.

Its was first used for replacing small teeth, but its greatest triumph has come for those among us that wear dentures. If the jaw is fitted with a number of mini-implants, the altered denture simply locates onto the spike, holding it firmly locked to the inside of the mouth and sometimes they are used to lock in dental bridges.

Of course, the benefit of a ‘mini’ is that it is a sight-more cheaper than a larger implant, as well as being easy to fit. Most dentists carry out this procedure so you should book a session with your dentists and find out about your suitability for this treatment.


Diamond Dentures in Central Leeds

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

If  the tragic day comes when you find you have to wear dentures, you may feel that the end is nigh for your smile and a lot of this is due to the portrayal of dentures as horribly false looking and incredibly hard to retain in the mouth.

But before you start writing your will, you would be wise to take a look around central Leeds first for modern dentures. Once you have been measured up, you will find a great choice of materials, which are soft, lifelike and provide optimum suction and stability when fitted into the mouth. Adhesives have also become more durable and stronger, helping increase the security of your dentures.

You can even have mini-implants fitted to hold them even firmly in place. But there is also a more health driven reason behind the need of dentures.

The first is the need to retain the bite of your jaws and having dentures will protect this. The lack of teeth in the mouth can also lead to premature ageing in the face, due to the sagging and creasing of unsupported skin.

Partial dentures have also become more common because dentists prefer to save teeth where they can and they are more preferable to full dentures because they can be attached to the remaining teeth and lock in strongly.
