If you’re searching for a reliable replacement for lost teeth, look no further than our dreamy dentures. Dentures are a tried and tested treatment that have enabled patients with missing teeth to enjoy confidence, a natural, healthy looking smile and a fully-functional set of teeth for decades.
Dentures are sets of false teeth, which are used to replace missing teeth or a full arch of lost teeth. At Clifton Dental Studio, we have the incredible advantage of having both highly trained dentists and dental technicians on-site, and we offer exceptional modern dentures that provide all the benefits of healthy natural teeth. Our dentures are made from the finest quality materials and they are custom-made to ensure optimum comfort.
Dentures are usually held by the suction of the gums, but some patients prefer to use fixative for additional stability and security. With dentures, you should be able to speak clearly and enjoy a wide range of foods without any worries.
The pros and cons of dentures
Dentures are affordable and the treatment time is short, so you can start enjoying the benefits of your new teeth very quickly. They are not a permanent solution because the contours of your mouth change, and therefore adjustments have to be made to preserve the fit. However, they do last a long time.
If you have missing teeth and you are thinking about tooth replacement treatment, call us today and arrange a consultation.
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.

Denture treatment at Clifton Dental Studio
We offer partial (to replace a small number of missing teeth) and complete dentures (to replace a full arch of missing teeth) and all our dentures are custom-made using the finest materials. Our team is highly experienced and we carry out thorough checks to make sure all our clients feel confident and comfortable when they leave with their new denture. We also recommend regular check-ups so that we can check the fit of your denture; as the mouth is constantly changing shape, dentures have to be replaced from time to time.
If your denture doesn’t fit properly, this can increase the risk of slipping and contribute to irritation and soreness of the gums.
If you’ve been struggling with ill-fitting dentures or you have missing teeth and you are looking for a suitable replacement, call us to find out more about denture treatment.
We are proud to offer our patients an array of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments and we have options to cater for the needs of all our patients. We provide a range of different tooth replacement treatments for patients with a single missing tooth, a few lost teeth or full arches of missing teeth and we can tailor your treatment plan to suit your preferences and your budget. Our treatments include dental bridges, dentures and dental implants. Dental bridges are a popular choice for patients with a single missing tooth and they are most commonly made from a false tooth, which is joined to two crowns. We have a choice of materials on offer, including porcelain, for a lovely natural look and we use the best materials to ensure durability. Our bespoke dentures are an excellent choice for patients with a few missing teeth or full sets of lost teeth. Our modern partial and complete dentures are designed to mimic natural teeth in look and function and they make a real difference to the look of your smile, as well as your quality of life. Dental implants are the closest option to healthy, natural teeth; they are designed to replace the tooth root and implanted into the jaw bone. Once the implant has integrated, the implant is attached to a new restoration, which replaces the visible part of the lost tooth. Implants are very versatile because they can be connected to bridges, crowns and dentures. Whatever your needs, we can help to give you a beautiful new smile!
Dentures have always been a great way to retain the mouths occlusion (bite) and spare the jaw joints from damage after tooth loss. They are also a good for preventing the face from sagging and hence, the appearance of premature ageing. However, people have never felt comfortable wearing them in the past; they not only looked ‘fake’ but they were also hard to keep in, especially as the gums start to shrink over time. However, modern techniques in their manufacture have seen them being produced from softer materials that can cater for such change in the gums and stick better to the inside of the mouth; combined with dental implants and adhesives, dentures sit true and firmly in place. Whether you have full dentures or partial ones, they are a cheaper and more manageable option to choose; plus, they restore your smile and keep you happy. Bath is blessed by having Clifton Dental working in the area and these are the people to get in touch with if you have any questions about dentures; they can tell you all about where to get them done, the costs involved and the other back-up treatments that come with them.
Your mouth is very delicate and having all your teeth in place is imperative in order to protect how your jaws come together and maintain your bite. The problem comes when teeth start going AWOL and for whatever the reason, it is very important to get them replaced. In the past, gum disease was a killer for your teeth and dentists would often panic and remove them all, followed up with the fitting of full dentures. But dentistry has emerged from the dark ages and the treatment of gum and periodontal disease has got better and better. This has meant a huge clamour for partial dentures, and with good reason; they are a cheap fix for tooth loss, easy to manage and look very natural when they wrap themselves around the teeth that remain. The same can also be said for the development of full dentures: softer materials are being used in their manufacture, meaning they fit better and adhere to the mouth firmly; adhesives have improved immeasurably, but it is the fact that if you have a few dental implants placed around the mouth, they will lock the dentures solidly into the mouth, giving you amazing freedom when you wear them. In Swindon, you are served by the Clifton Dental Studio of Bristol and these people know everything there is to know about dentures, so call them first before making decisions about recovering from tooth loss.
It probably isn’t the day that everyone in Bath looks forward to, but the day you have dentures fitted, partial or full, is the day in your imagination that consigns you to being old. Past images of dentures are not good and wearing them can be as shocking and as stifling as getting a jail sentence: they habitually seem to fall out, the only thing you can eat is soups, as food has now become yours and your dentures enemy, and mentally, it will age you as well. That was then but this is now, and those kind of thoughts are so far removed from the reality of modern dentures and insulting to the manufacturers as well: a lot of people have put a lot of thought and time into the design of dentures and the results are pretty astonishing. Today’s dentures look nothing like the ones won at a hoopla stall at a fair in the past. In both partial and full dentures, the materials have become more natural looking, softer for better adherence to the mouth and delicate to wear; the new cements to bond them with have got better and stronger as well. But if you want to see real progress, just take a look at the mini-implant. With a few of these locking your dentures in place, you can throw away the soups and start eating properly again because your dentures are in and they will stay in- they are also here to stay. Get in touch with Bristol’s Clifton Dental if you want to know more about the virtues of modern dentures.
The thought of having dentures does not rest easy on the mind and can conjure up some very grim images in the minds of anyone living in Weston-super-mare. But before you pack up your belongings and go to meet your maker, you may well like to have a look at the ways dentures still play an important part in your oral health and just how much they have evolved in recent years. It is important that you understand that tooth loss is not the end of the world and how important it is to replace them at any cost and you should consult with Clifton dental on this for they will be able to explain the importance of dentures to the health of your mouth. Visually, your face will suffer from tooth loss as the face can start to sag and age prematurely. Not only this, the lack of teeth in your mouth can start to put strain on your occlusion, or bite, and if not checked, you could do further damage to your jaws. When it comes to dentures, a lot of things have changed, namely, dentists don’t panic any more when they see gum disease and feel the need to rip out all your teeth. They will try to save as many as they can so that you can be fitted with soft, natural dentures that will fit more securely in the mouth; it is the use of modern materials that have made dentures a lot easier to cope with and made them look more natural. Dentures have also benefited from better adhesives and the intervention of the mini-implants that can hold the dentures firmly to the surfaces of the mouth.
For patients from Weston-super-Mare, the installation of dentures is a common procedure performed by dentists. As these are worn to replace lost or missing teeth, they are often associated with the elderly as this problem gets worse with age. However, ‘false teeth’ are worn by people of all ages and should not be stigmatised.
When the dentists construct dentures, they use a plate made of either acrylic or metal as the base. You can either get a complete set which will replace all of your natural teeth in your upper or lower jaws or a partial set which will just replace individual missing or lost teeth.
Having dentures is a good idea if you are missing teeth as your facial muscles can sag over time when teeth are missing. Having dentures installed will help keep the structure of your mouth intact and provide support to your cheeks and lips. You do not want to look old before your time, do you? It also helps retain your smile which has all sorts of benefits relating to your confidence levels at work and home. When you meet your perfect partner at the night club, it is nice if you can offer them an open smile.
There are a few things you will have to get used to when you get dentures. Primarily, eating can take a bit of practice. Sometimes your dentures will move as you chew food so you have to be extra careful to chew in a fairly symmetrical fashion. This can be harder than it sounds! However, as you spend more time with your dentures, you will soon get the hang of it.
Losing many or all of your teeth is a trauma indeed and it will have profound implications for the way you can eat, drink and talk. This is not something that has to be put up with, because dentists can fit patients with sets of dentures that are extremely effective at replicating the functions of a set of teeth.
So effective and popular are dentures in the twenty first century that they are challenging the out of date stereotypes that have surrounded dentures for so many years. The associations with old people whose dentures slip out at meal times is not a true reflection of what modern dentures are like.
For one thing, they are quite suitable for patients at any age who wish to avoid invasive surgery and are on more of a budget. They are far less likely to slip from the mouth because the modern designs of dentures are carried out to fit perfectly into the mouths of individual patients. In the past they were often made en masse to the same design and so were simply the wrong size for many of the people who wore them.
Go and see your dentist in Chepstow if you have experienced large scale tooth loss and want to know more about dentures and how they work. You will probably be surprised to find out that patients these days are finding them far more comfortable and user friendly than in the past. They can always be worn as a short term solution if you are considering something more drastic but permanent, such as dental implants where replacement teeth are secured to the jaw bone through osseointegration.
