Did You Know Dental Implants Can Give You Peace of Mind for Your Smile?

Are you struggling to cope with missing teeth, or are you having trouble with your dentures? If you’ve got concerns about your smile, we have the ultimate solution! With dental implants, we can give you a beautiful smile, as well as complete peace of mind.

The lowdown on dental implants

Dental implants are a relative newcomer on the tooth replacement scene. Implants are designed to replace the missing root, and they are used to anchor dentures, dental bridges and individual crowns. Implants are small, screw-like devices, which are made from titanium. They are placed inside small sockets in the jaw bone. Titanium is a biocompatible material, which means that the implant is capable of integrating into the bone tissue. This provides superior stability for the new tooth. If you have an implant, you won’t notice the difference between your natural teeth and your new tooth.

Implants are a versatile option for patients who have lost teeth, as they are compatible with a range of different restorations. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth, or a full arch of teeth, implants can help to restore your smile to its former glory. Implants are also a long-term solution for tooth loss, and they create spectacular, natural-looking aesthetics.

Achieving peace of mind with dental implants

If you’ve had problems with your dentures in the past, this may have impacted your confidence levels. You might be reluctant to eat in public, or you may feel anxious about the look of your smile. With implants, there is no need to worry. Your smile will look amazing, you’ll be able to enjoy the same level of functionality as with a set of healthy, natural teeth, and there’s absolutely no risk of slipping or sliding, even if you still have dentures. Implant-retained dentures are completely stable and secure, so you can eat, speak, and smile without any anxiety at all.

Missing Teeth? How Advance Dental Clinic Can Help You

We strongly recommend replacing missing teeth. Lost teeth affect the aesthetic of the smile, but they can also contribute to an increased risk of oral health problems, they can impact confidence and self-esteem, and they can cause issues related to nutrition and speech. If you have missing teeth, you don’t need to worry. We have an array of exceptional options available to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or full sets of lost teeth.

Our tooth replacement options

We have a range of options that are suited to patients with diverse dental needs. If you have missing teeth, we may recommend one of the following treatments:

Dental bridge: a dental bridge is commonly used to replace a single tooth or a small number of missing teeth. Bridges come in various shapes and sizes, but the most common type is a traditional fixed bridge. Fixed bridges are made from a prosthetic tooth, which is fused to a crown on either side. Bridges are custom-made for the individual, and they are often made using ceramics for a seamless finish. Bridges can be fitted in two sessions, and they should last up to 15 years.

Dentures: dentures are sets of false teeth, which have been used for decades to replace missing teeth. Modern dentures are light, sleek and very natural looking. We can provide partial dentures to replace a few missing teeth or complete dentures to replace full arches of lost teeth. Dentures are not a permanent solution, but they are hard-wearing and durable. They are cheaper than implants, and they can be fitted within a couple of weeks.

Dental implants: dental implants are the new kid on the tooth replacement block. Implants are a long-term solution, and they last many years. The aim of the implant, which sits in a socket in the jaw bone, is to anchor the new tooth in the same way as a healthy natural root. Implants are made from titanium, and they are compatible with crowns, bridges and dentures, which makes them a viable option for the majority of patients.

If you have missing teeth, why not call and book a consultation today? We can go through the options with you and help you decide which treatment is best for you.

Three Reasons to Replace Missing Teeth

If you have missing teeth, it’s highly likely that your dentist will encourage you to think about replacing them. Gaps in the smile can cause problems for various reasons, and there are some amazing tooth replacement treatments out there. If you’ve lost a tooth or you have a number of gaps in your smile, here are three reasons to think about tooth replacement:

  1. Dental health: if you’ve lost teeth, this can have a negative impact on your dental health. The remaining teeth can start to move out of position, and it may be harder to keep your mouth clean. Replacing missing teeth will improve your oral health both in the short and long-term.
  2. Aesthetics and confidence: many of us consider the smile the most important physical feature. When you meet somebody, their smile is often the first thing you notice about them. Missing teeth can affect the aesthetic of the smile, but they can also affect your confidence. You may feel nervous or apprehensive when you meet new people, and you may be reluctant to smile in public or pose for photographs. Replacing missing teeth can rebuild your confidence and make sure you feel great when your smile is on show.
  3. Diet and nutrition: your teeth play an important role in digestion. You use your teeth to break down food and make it easier for your body to digest it. Without strong teeth the range of foods you can eat may be limited, and this can have a negative impact on nutrition and health. With a bridge, dentures or dental implants, you can enjoy a wider range of foods, and you won’t feel anxious when you eat.

If you have missing teeth, and you’d like to find more about your options, why not arrange a consultation? Our friendly dentists can talk you through the different treatments and make recommendations based on your individual needs and preferences.

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.

All-on-4 offers an array of advantages for patients who have missing natural teeth. These include:

The results of treatment are also impressive, and you can enjoy a stunning, natural looking smile. One of the most significant benefits of SynCone is the speed of treatment.

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.

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.
