For many, gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech. Not to mention the possibility of teeth either side of the gap protruding into the space. At Etwall Dental Practice, we’re finding that dental implants are becoming a more sought-after solution among patients and our dental professionals are on hand to ensure your experience is positive and comforting from beginning to end.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic, nylon or metal that fit snugly over your gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate the potential problems caused by gaps. Dependant on a consultation with our dental technicians, you will be recommended one of two procedures: complete or partial dentures. Complete dentures will completely replace your upper or lower teeth whilst partial dentures simply replace one or a few missing teeth.
What are the benefits of dentures?
Although they take some getting used to and will never feel exactly the same as natural teeth, dentures are extremely natural looking and more comfortable than ever before. Furthermore, without support from dentures, facial muscles may begin to sag, making you look older than you really are. Crucially, dentures can help you eat and speak more comfortably and ultimately restore the confidence you feel with a natural smile.
Can dentures be altered?
Our dental technicians will ensure you are wholeheartedly satisfied with the results of your dentures upon completion of the treatment. However, over time the shape of your gums and the bones that support your dentures can change, resulting in the need for denture realignment. Moreover, sometimes well-worn dentures can be beyond repair. If that becomes the case, we recommended contacting the team at Etwall Dental Practice, to arrange a consultation as soon as possible. To maintain longevity, make sure to regularly clean your dentures and store them in a denture cleaning solution when you’re not wearing them, so they don’t dry out.
The importance of taking action with missing teeth cannot be understated, as leaving them may lead to more severe long-term issues. We therefore welcome you to get in touch with us, if you feel you’re in need of new dental implants. You can find more details of what we offer on our Dentures page.
