Dentures are a very popular and effective treatment for missing teeth. They are sets of prosthetic teeth, which take on the role of natural teeth to enable you to speak clearly, eat and chew food and support your cheeks for an enhanced, youthful facial aesthetic.
All about dentures
Dentures are false teeth, which are designed to look and function like natural teeth. They are held in place by the suction of the gums, but it is also possible to use denture adhesive for additional security. We can also offer implant-retained dentures, which are dentures that are held in place by dental implants.
Dentures are made from various materials, including plastic, acrylic and metals and modern dentures are extremely lifelike. Dentures have come a long way in terms of design and fit and they provide a very effective replacement for lost natural teeth; they are no longer the large and cumbersome sets of obviously false looking teeth that lie by the bed in glasses in films – they are sleek, light and excellent copies of strong, healthy, natural teeth.
What are the benefits of dentures?
Dentures really can change your life, especially if you’ve been struggling with a number of missing teeth for a prolonged period of time. Dentures restore your ability to eat, they improve your speech and they also provide support for your lips and cheeks, preventing the cheeks from looking sunken. Dentures also enable you to show a healthy looking, full smile whenever you open your mouth, which will boost your confidence as well as making you look and feel more attractive.
Modern dentures are also light and comfortable. They are fitted to the exact contours and shapes of your mouth to ensure maximum comfort and we check the fit on a regular basis to reduce the risk of irritation.
