We do everything we can to save a tooth but sometimes it’s just not possible. In these cases, it will have to be removed. If this happens, we can discuss how to replace the missing tooth or teeth. There are several options and one of them is to have a denture placed.
A denture is a removable appliance to replace anything from one tooth to a full mouth of lost teeth. It is constructed over several appointments in collaboration with our dental technician.
There are primarily for different types of denture.
Modern cosmetic dentures can be very comfortable and quick to get used to. Sometimes snug denture cushion are placed on the inside of the denture, this is a soft lining inside the denture which makes them even more comfortable.
You may find there is a period of adjustment when you have new dentures, sometimes it takes a week or so for them to settle in and for the muscles around your face to get used to them. If you do find that ulcers develop please let your dentist know as they can then make adjustments to the inside fitting surface of the denture.
There is always going to be a period of adjustment and you may find that speech is a little more difficult the first time you wear dentures. You should find that you adapt very quickly, usually within one week.
Are there alternatives? Yes, absolutely.
Both bridges and implants are permanent and are not removable by the patient. Sometimes a dental implant can be retained with a screw, this will not be visible in normal use and makes the implant bridge removable by the dentist for routine maintenance.
If you struggle with looseness of dentures, particularly a lower full denture, then you can have a couple of implants placed to fix your denture into. This is a very popular treatment when dentures have become a nuisance.
Good quality, well fitting dentures take time to construct from both the dentist’s and the technician’s perspective and the aim is to replace lost support and have a natural, great looking denture that has great function too.
Loose wobbly dentures can also be stabilised with dental implants.
