Why You Should Consider a Denture

Friday, June 24th, 2016

3177025_blogComplete tooth loss can be devastating to a person’s emotional wellbeing as well as their oral health. It stops you from being able to eat certain foods, can make your face appear sunken and aged and can also affect the way you speak. Tooth loss can make you look, feel and even sound like a different person, but thankfully there is a massive range of treatment to restore your smile to its former glory, one of the best being complete dentures.

Dentures for missing teeth

Dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for many, many years and are one of the most cost-effective options for restoring a smile.

Making custom-fitted dentures requires around five appointments, which might involve:

  • Checking and assessing your oral health
  • Making a dental impression of your gums and mouth
  • Using a ‘try-in’ denture to see what kind of denture suits you
  • Fitting you with a temporary denture while you wait for your custom-fitted denture
  • Making sure your new denture fits you perfectly

Some patients may also require tooth extraction before they can be fitted with dentures and in this case we will wait eight weeks to give your gums time to heal.

How to look after your denture

A denture can last 10-15 years without needing to be altered, if you keep the health of your mouth in optimum condition. This requires keeping your gums clean and soaking your dentures overnight. It is advisable to always take your dentures out when you sleep, to allow your gum times to rest.

Also avoid putting your dentures in hot water, as this could warp the denture, making it unwearable.

Dentures and dental implants

Dentures can also be held in place using dental implants, which increases the stability and strength of your smile, making eating, speaking and smiling as easy as it was with natural teeth.

Solve Tooth Loss with Dentures

If you have suffered from an accident that caused you to lose your teeth, or you have been affected by prolonged dental decay that meant your teeth fell out, it is vital that you replace your teeth.  There are a number of reasons for this.  Having a full set of teeth makes eating so much easier because your teeth are ideal implements for chewing food so that it can be digested properly.  Having no teeth can spoil your appearance and lead to a loss of confidence, especially if your cheeks begin to sag, making you look older than you are.

One practical option in this case is to get your dentist to fit a set of dentures. Modern dentures can be extremely realistic looking and hard-wearing.  They can be removed for cleaning and are generally far more comfortable than they used to be.  Dentures are able to be held in place by the natural suction of your gums or by using a fixing agent.

Some people now prefer the more permanent solution of having replacement teeth fixed in place with dental implants.  It is possible that dentures can slip while you are eating, drinking or talking and this can be embarrassing, but techniques are improving all the time.  Innovations like friction-free dentures, for example, are changing the way that people think about dentures.

Once your denture has been made, we recommend regular check-ups so that we can keep an eye on the fit of the denture. Dentures last a long time, but they may need replacing or adjusting, as the shape of the mouth changes on a constant basis and it’s essential to ensure that the denture is a perfect fit. Ill-fitting dentures increase the risk of soreness and irritation and they also don’t always work to their full capacity.

Dentures in Leeds Are a Great Cost Effective Alternative to Implants

Friday, March 14th, 2014

3177025_blogDental implants are great, but there’s no denying that they are an expensive treatment. Dentures are a more affordable option and modern dentures are a really great replacement for missing natural teeth.

Dentures are false teeth, which are designed to restore function to the mouth in the event that the natural teeth are lost. Most people associate dentures with older people who have lost their teeth through ageing, but they can be effective for patients of all ages. It is possible to get partial dentures to replace a few missing teeth and complete or full dentures to replace an entire arch of missing teeth.

Benefits of denture treatment

Dentures have a bit of a bad reputation and if you’ve got an old-fashioned image of a huge set of false teeth sat in a glass by the bed, you will be pleasantly surprised by the modern versions. Today’s dentures are light, functional and aesthetically pleasing and they can have a really positive impact on your quality of life. If you have a large number of missing teeth this has an impact on your confidence and your appearance, as well as your speech and your ability to eat. If you’re missing out on a balanced diet because you’re avoiding foods that are hard to chew, this can affect your overall health. Dentures help to eradicate these problems and enable you to enjoy good health, as well as a beautiful, natural looking smile.
