Tooth loss can impact on daily life through a loss of aesthetic, phonetic and functional value of a person’s mouth. The use of dentures is a relatively cheap and effective way of replacing single or numerous missing teeth. Whether you are looking at extracting a tooth with immediate replacement, or have lost numerous teeth and can’t afford more expensive implant or fixed appliances, removable dentures provide an affordable, comfortable and aesthetic alternative.
Dentures will also improve your smile by enhancing your lips and restore function allowing for improved chewing ability. As they are not fixed in place in your mouth they can be removed for cleaning.
At Tuart Hill Dental our dentists may recommend dentures if you are missing several of your teeth. In many cases, dentures are designed to be held in place by your remaining natural teeth.
Dentures are made from a mould of your teeth, and from bite records. Trial wax dentures are usually provided before the final denture is made.
You may find that your denture needs to be relined every so often to ensure that it continues to fit well. This typically occurs in the six months following the removal of any teeth, due to the surrounding bone shrinking.
At Tuart Hill Dental, we offer free adjustments for new dentures, to ensure that they are fitting as well as possible. We will also check the alignment of your dentures at every check-up to ensure that they continue to fit well and remain in good condition.
If you have an existing denture that no longer fits well or needs repair or whether you are simply enquiring about dentures for the first time, contact our friendly staff today for an assessment. Our associated labs are highly adept at producing quality appliances to suite your needs and can even fabricate same day dentures in urgent cases.
