If you have lost a few missing teeth to a full arch of teeth, dentures are the more traditional way when it comes to replacing them. We use the very best materials when creating new teeth, ensuring they are hard waring, functional and also aesthetically pleasing, with a natural looking finish.
How Do Dentures Stay In Place?
All of our dentures are custom made to give a close fit along your underlying gum and bone tissue. Saliva will produce between the gum and your denture which will act as a sort of suction seal, holding the denture in place.
Please note, a well fitted (initially) denture is subject to changes in our mouths, which will vary from person to person. Unfortunately, when we lose our teeth, we suffer from bone resorption. This effectively means the bone in our jaws starts to fade away, causing our once well fitted denture, to start to slip and feel uncomfortable – which are signs you may need a denture reline (depending on the denture), to make them feel more secure again.
If you are after a more permanent solution, an implant retained overdenture is often considered the gold standard in tooth replacement. This is because the implants will integrate with the bone and in the same way as a natural tooth does, when you are chewing, signals will be sent to the surrounding bone and act as natural stimulator for bone growth around the implants. You over denture will be connected to these implants which gives them the same stability as natural teeth have, allowing you to eat, talk and laugh with complete confidence.
