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.

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.
