Stabilise Your Dentures And Enjoy The Benefits Here In Central Leeds

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

3177025_blogDentures are a hugely impressive solution for missing teeth, but they can cause some issues. With stabilised dentures, we can offer solutions to common denture problems and ensure you have peace of mind, as well as a great looking smile and strong, functional teeth. We stabilise dentures by anchoring them with dental implants; this provides much greater stability and support than the suction of the gums alone.

What are implant-retained dentures?

Dental implants are small titanium posts, which are secured into openings in the jaw bone to act as a tooth root. Once the implant has been placed, it undergoes a process called osseointegration, which results in it becoming part of the actual bone tissue. Once the implant has settled completely, it can then be attached to a new restoration. Implants are clever because they are compatible with different types of restoration, including dentures, crowns and dental bridges. With implant-retained dentures, the denture is connected to the implants.

What are the benefits of implant-retained dentures?

Implant-retained dentures are the answer to denture wearer’s prayers; they eliminate the risk of dentures slipping, they increase bite power so that you can eat what you like, they look great and above all, they make you feel comfortable and confident when you speak, eat and smile. There is absolutely no risk that a denture will come loose or slip and there is very little chance of sore spots developing, as the denture is unable to move out of place.

With implant-retained dentures, you can enjoy all the benefits of traditional dentures with amazing bonuses. There’s no need to worry about limiting your diet or steering clear of specific foods, there’s no risk of slipping and sliding and you can be sure that your denture will feel comfortable at all times.

If you would like to find out more about dentures, dental implants or implant-retained dentures, call us and arrange a consultation or simply pop in when you are next in town.

From decreased confidence in social situations and a lack of self-esteem related to the appearance of your smile, to difficulty with eating and unclear speech, missing teeth can be troublesome. Thankfully, there are many treatment options for patients of all ages with missing teeth and one of our tried and tested treatments is a denture.

Everything you need to know about denture

Soft dentures are prosthetic teeth, which are used to replace missing natural teeth. Whether you have lost a number of teeth in an accident or you have lost most of your natural teeth through ageing or oral health diseases, dentures can help. We offer partial and complete dentures to replace a small number of missing teeth or a full arch of lost teeth.

Dentures are bespoke, meaning that they are crafted individually for each patient. They are designed and manufactured based on the measurements and contours of the patient’s mouth to ensure that they fit perfectly. The fit of the denture is really important, not just for reasons associated with functionality, but also to prevent sore spots and irritation.

Dentures offer a range of benefits for patients and a properly fit, well-made denture should enable you to carry out all the functions you are able to complete with strong and healthy natural teeth. You can eat and enjoy a wide range of different foods, your speech will be clearer and above all, you can feel more confident when you smile. Modern dentures are very lifelike and they are designed to mimic a beautiful, natural looking smile.

If you have missing teeth and you’re ready to consider replacement options, call us today to find out more about denture treatment.

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.

iStock_000001998629XSmallDentures: love the idea or hate it, but you may end up going done this route and you only have yourself to blame in Leeds because aside from injury, you clearly haven’t looked after you mouth enough in the past. However, without being too harsh, what’s done is done and if you need dentures, you shouldn’t be afraid to go down this road; modern dentures have changed considerably over the years and believe or not, become rather a sexy option to tooth loss.

So don’t be scared- if you have lost some teeth of late, talk to your dentist about the possibility of dentures: they are the cheapest and easiest of options to go for right now.

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

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.
