Many denture wearers suffer a great deal of discomfort and problems such as pain, mouth ulcers and denture sores . Difficulty in speaking and eating can develop because of loose or ill fitting dentures.
Many simply withdraw from any type of social engagement as a result of being compelled to wear them. Dental Implants could be the answer to solving these problems . They also eliminate the need for using denture pads , fixatives and adhesives.
Dentures are used to replace lost or missing teeth so people can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. They are made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal, and a 'complete' or 'full' denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.
A 'partial' denture fills the spaces left by lost or missing teeth and fastens to natural teeth with metal clasps or 'precision attachments'.
Usually they can be fitted straight after your teeth have been removed. These are called 'immediate dentures'. With these you don't have to be without teeth while your gums are healing. Sometimes you may be advised to wait until your gums are healed before fitting, as this can provide a better fit. A conventional denture is then fit after you are healed.
If you suffer from loose dentures then Parkhouse Dental Practice may have the perfect solution for you. Loose dentures can affect your confidence, the way you speak and the foods you eat, but this does not need to be the case.
Conventional dentures need to be regularly relined or replaced as the bone supporting the gum beneath the denture shrinks due to lack of use. We can secure loose dentures with dental implants giving you the confidence to smile again and eat the foods that you want.
