You may think that getting dentures is purely an aesthetic thing but actually, having no teeth at all can cause problems for facial structure and your ability to chew and bite.
Dentures are another effective way of replacing teeth generally you can have partial dentures – which replace a few missing teeth or complete dentures; which replace all the teeth.
The material mostly widely used for dentures is acrylic.
What to expect
Initial impressions where we take moulds of your teeth.
Secondary impressions when we take more impressions with a custom made tray.
Bite – the this is when we ensure your teeth bite into the right position and then take certain measurements so as to translate this to the technician.
Try in- your dentures are made from the metal frame work with wax with acrylic teeth at this stage so we can fit them and make any changes before the final fit.
Fit stage – the dentures are now all made of acrylic and cobalt chrome.
At the fit stage they usually need some fine adjustment to ensure all is perfect.
The patient is then advised on removal and fitting of the denture as well as care instructions.
Advantages of dentures
- Dentures restore your smile and eliminate any social awkwardness you may have felt about the gaps in your teeth.
- Without your teeth, your facial muscles will start to sag. Dentures replace the support in your face, once created by your natural teeth, to help keep your facial appearance and prevent you from looking older.
- Modern dentures are designed to be comfortable, as well as perform the functions of natural teeth. It may take a few dentist visits to get the correct fit, but it is a small price to pay for renewed confidence in chewing and talking.
