Four Tips to Taking Care Of Your Dentures

Dentures are a very popular and effective solution for people who have lost natural teeth. If you have a denture, it’s really important to take good care of it to get the best out of it and reduce the risk of damage. Here are 4 top tips to help you care for your denture:

  1. Keep your denture clean: good oral hygiene is essential for everyone. Even if you don’t have any natural teeth, it’s vital to keep your denture clean to reduce the risk of oral infections and keep your gums healthy. Wash your denture with lukewarm water or denture cleansing solution at least once a day. When you’re cleaning your denture, avoid using hot water as this can cause the denture to become misshapen.
  2. Store your denture in a safe place: if you’re taking your denture out to give your gums a breather, make sure you store it in a safe place. It’s very easy to put a denture down and then forget about it, and this could result in damage.
  3. See your dentist on a regular basis: your mouth changes shape on a continual basis, and therefore, it’s beneficial to see your dentist frequently. Your dentist can check the condition and fit of the denture and they can also keep an eye on any remaining teeth and your gums. If you have sore gums or your denture feels loose, don’t wait for your next scheduled appointment. Call and book a consultation and we’ll do everything we can to make you feel comfortable again.
  4. Keep your denture moist: it’s important to keep your denture moist and to prevent it from drying out. When you’re not wearing your denture, keep it in a glass of soaking solution or water.

How Syncone Can Give You a Secure Natural Smile In a Day

If you’re looking into tooth replacement options, you may have come across dentures and dental implants. All treatments have pros and cons, but how would you feel if we told you we could offer you the best of both worlds? With Syncone, we can give you a secure, natural looking smile without the wait.

What is Syncone?

Syncone is a same-day denture stabilisation treatment, which combines the benefits of dentures and dental implants. Traditionally, when you have dental implants, the process takes months, as you have to wait for the implants to integrate into the bone tissue before the new teeth are attached. With Syncone, we can fit both the implants and the denture on the same day, so you don’t have to wait around to enjoy your incredible new smile.

The Syncone technique involves placing between 4 and 6 implants, all of which have tapered posts. The posts fit securely into a cap that is found on the base of the denture. Once the implants are in place, the denture is attached and secured, and you can take a look at your brand new smile!

The benefits of Syncone

Syncone treatment is much faster than traditional dental implant treatment and it offers greater stability than normal dentures. With Syncone, the denture is anchored by implants, and this means that there is no risk of the denture slipping around or causing irritation. Syncone also reduces the risk of gum shrinkage and bone loss.

If you’re looking for an effective solution for missing teeth and you’d like to see if you’re a suitable candidate for Syncone treatment, call us today and arrange a consultation We can give you more information about the treatment and take a look at your teeth to check that this solution is viable for you.

Four Tips for Comfortable Dentures

Dentures are an excellent replacement for missing teeth, but they can sometimes be uncomfortable. If you’re keen to get the best out of your dentures and keep sore spots at bay, bear these four tips in mind:

  1. See your dentist on a regular basis: it’s always a good idea to see your dentist on a regular basis, even if you don’t have any of your natural teeth remaining. Your dentist will check your gums and they’ll also keep an eye on your dentures.
  2. Keep your dentures clean: it’s really important to keep your dentures as clean as possible, so take them out and rinse them after eating and cleanse them before you go to bed. You can use denture cleaning solution or warm water to rinse. Avoid boiling water, as this can cause the denture to become misshapen.
  3. Consider using fixative: if you find that your dentures feel a little looser than you would like, consider using fixative to hold them in place. Some people prefer using fixative, but others prefer to rely solely on the natural suction power of the gums.
  4. Seek advice if your dentures are sore: if your gums are irritated or you find your dentures uncomfortable, call and make an appointment. It’s really important that your dentures fit well to get the most out of them and to prevent irritation.

Did You Know We Can Make Sure Dentures Don’t Move?

Have you ever experienced difficulties with your dentures? Are you fed up of wearing ill-fitting dentures or are you looking for the next big thing to give you a beautiful smile and put a stop to denture discomfort? If so, did you know what we can stop your dentures from moving around? Denture stabilisation is a treatment that combines the benefits of denture and dental implant treatment. The outcome is a natural looking smile, which also gives you all the functionality of a set of healthy natural teeth.

What does denture stabilisation involve?

Traditionally, if you have a denture, it will be secured in place by the natural suction provided by your gums. It is also possible to use fixative to provide extra support, but what would you say if we told you that we could provide you with a solution that would mean you never had to worry about loose dentures again? Denture stabilisation is an option that involves using dental implants, small titanium posts, to anchor a denture. These titanium implants are fitted into sockets in the jaw bone, and they assume the role of the missing natural root. The implant is able to integrate into the jaw bone, giving you unrivalled levels of stability. Once the process is complete, the denture is attached, and you’ll have a brand new smile, which looks great, and will also afford you peace of mind.

With denture stabilisation, there’s absolutely no risk of a denture slipping or coming loose, and this means that you can smile with confidence, and eat and enjoy a wide range of foods without any anxiety at all.

The Changing Face of Dentures

If you still think of dentures as large sets of artificial looking false teeth sitting in a glass by the bed, have we got a surprise for you! Modern dentures are light, comfortable and amazingly lifelike and they can make a huge difference to the look of your smile, as well as quality of life and self-esteem.

About dentures

Dentures are a treatment used to replace missing teeth. The teeth are very hard-wearing and durable but they are susceptible to damage, injury and decay and dentures are used to replace teeth that have fallen out or been extracted as a result of infection, trauma or decay. There are different types of dentures available, including complete dentures, which are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth and partial dentures, which replace a few missing teeth. Partial dentures are designed to blend in with the colour and shape of your natural teeth.

Dentures are often associated with older people, but they can be used for patients of all ages.

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures can transform your life, especially if you have a large number of missing teeth. Dentures are designed to function like natural teeth and they will enable you to eat and drink without any problems and to speak clearly. They also restore the beautiful aesthetic of a natural, healthy looking smile, so you can look forward to smiling with confidence. Dentures also resume the function of the natural tooth and support the lips and cheeks, which creates a better overall facial aesthetic.

Dentures have come a long way and modern dentures are very natural looking. They are shaped and coloured to mimic natural teeth and they are much lighter and less cumbersome than they used to be. Modern styles are designed with comfort and convenience in mind and the aim is to achieve a perfect fit. For more information on denture treatment in Chelmsford contact us today.

Introducing the Latest Modern Dentures!

Dentures have been a tooth replacement choice for years, but have in recent times fallen out of favour. However, the latest modern dentures available today outshine their ancestors in terms of practicality, function and appearance.

How do dentures work?

Dentures are replacement teeth that sit on a palate. They are usually removable, unless dental implants are fitted. When a person looses a large number or all of their teeth, dentures are one of the easiest and most cost-effective solutions to the problem.

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures return the functionality of the mouth to the wearer, who before may have been unable to eat due to their lack of teeth. Dentures also provide structure for the face and mouth, which is apt to appear sunken and old without the support of the teeth. Dentures return this support and can be an instant rejuvenation for the face, taking years off the wearer.

How are my dentures made?

Dentures are custom-made for every patient, using impressions and wax moulds of your mouth. These impressions and moulds are then sent to a dental laboratory to create your personalized dentures. Your dentures will be made to suit you and your face, as well as being made to sit comfortably within your mouth.

Will I have to get used to my dentures?

Your dentures may feel a little unusual at first, but with time you will become used to them. Dental adhesives and pastes can be used to help stabilize your dentures and dental implants can also be added to provide a solid foundation.

If you would like to hear more about dentures and to ask any questions you have about wearing them please feel free to visit our dental clinic based in the heart of Chelmsford.

Denture Treatment for Missing Teeth

Dentures are a versatile treatment for missing teeth. They can replace entire sets of teeth (this is called a complete or full denture) or a small number of teeth (this is known as a partial denture).

About dentures

In most cases, dentures are made from acrylic resin, which is bonded to metal. The denture is made up of a palate and a set of false teeth, which are designed to look like natural teeth. Over the years, dentures have evolved and modern dentures are very lifelike, as well as being comfortable, functional and light.

Dentures are custom-made so that they fit the contours and shape of the individual patient’s mouth. However, as the mouth is constantly changing shape, it is common for adjustments to be made every now and again to ensure a perfect fit.

Benefits of dentures

Dentures have numerous benefits. Firstly, they create an attractive, natural looking smile, which is particularly impressive if you have lost all or most of your natural teeth. Dentures enable you to smile with confidence and feel happy about the look of your smile.

Dentures also restore the function of the mouth. The teeth have a number of important roles and missing teeth can cause problems for speech, eating and aesthetics. Dentures enable you to eat the foods you love, speak clearly and they also provide support for your cheeks, which creates a more youthful and attractive facial aesthetic.

Caring for dentures

Just as you care for your natural teeth, you also have to care for dentures. We advise patients to remove their dentures at night to allow the gums to rest. At Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford, we recommend daily cleaning to ensure that the denture is clean and to reduce the risk of infection. We are happy to provide advice about denture cleaning and to recommend cleaning products. We advise you to clean your denture at least once a day using a soft-bristled brush and denture cleaning solution. It is best to clean your denture while standing over a sink full of water so that the denture will not break if you accidentally drop it. Always store your denture in a safe place and keep the denture moist when you are not wearing it by leaving it in lukewarm water.
