A Well Fitting Denture Provides Perfect Support

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

2433646_sIf you have multiple missing teeth or a full arch of lost teeth, a denture could be the perfect solution. Dentures are sets of false teeth, which are designed to replace lost natural teeth; with a denture in place, you should be able to enjoy the same benefits as a healthy set of natural teeth, so you can smile with confidence and eat without anxiety or difficulty.

About dentures

Dentures are sometimes given a bad wrote-up, but they have come a long way in a relatively short space of time and modern dentures offer a really impressive alternative to missing teeth. If you have lost a number of teeth, this is likely to affect your ability to speak and eat, as well as your confidence when you smile and dentures provide a solution to these problems.

Dentures are usually made from plastic and acrylic and they are custom-made to fit the contours of your mouth for maximum comfort and the best aesthetics. It’s essential to check dentures regularly because the mouth constantly changes shape and if the denture starts to become loose, this can cause irritation, as well as affecting the function of the denture.

Dentures are held in place by the natural suction power of the gums; however, some people prefer to use a fixative for added stability. It is also possible to have implant-retained dentures, which are dentures that are anchored by dental implants. These dentures are more expensive, but the functionality is equal to natural teeth and there is no risk of a denture slipping or sliding.

Gaps in Your Smile? Leeds Can Fix This With A Bridge

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

18625044Gaps in the smile are likely to affect your confidence, but they can also be troublesome for your oral health and for the alignment and positioning of your remaining teeth. We have a host of options available to replace missing teeth and strongly recommend restorative treatment for patients who have lost a tooth. One of our most popular options is a dental bridge.

A dental bridge is a form of restoration, which is designed to ‘bridge the gap’ between two remaining teeth. The most commonly used bridge is a traditional fixed bridge, which is a fixed restoration made from a false tooth, which is held in place by two adjacent crowns, which are placed over the top of the neighbouring teeth. The false tooth is designed to look like the other teeth for a natural finish.

How is a dental bridge fitted and how long will it last?

Dental bridges are custom-made for each patient to ensure a perfect fit and maximum comfort. The bridge is made based on impressions of the patient’s teeth and once it is ready, your City Dental dentist will fit it and secure it into position using strong adhesive. Once the bridge is in place, it can only be removed by your dentist.

Dental bridges are not a permanent solution to missing teeth, but they should last for a long time, usually around 10-15 years.

When you have a dental bridge, oral hygiene is really important and it’s essential to clean around the bridge when you brush your teeth. We will give you advice about keeping your bridge clean when it is fitted and we will also check your bridge every time you come in for a routine dental appointment.
