Dentures For Missing Teeth
Tooth loss is something that affects millions of people every year. In modern day dentistry there are several options to replace them including dental implants, fixed bridges and dentures. It is important that missing teeth are replaced straight away for the following reasons:
Teeth adjacent to the gap (where the tooth was lost) begin to shift (move) towards the gap and cause functional bite problems.
Missing teeth can result in bone loss and shrinkage of your jawbone over time
Missing teeth can cause your facial muscles to sag (due to lack of support) and make you look much older than you are.
There are two main types of dentures that are used to replace missing teeth, full set which replace a full set of either upper or lower teeth and partials which only replace a few missing teeth.
Here at Andover Smile Centre we don’t just make dentures to look good but place great importance on fabricating teeth that are a perfect fit. Loose dentures can irritate your gums, cause problems with eating and social embarrassment, we ensure that our are always made to fit securely in place. If you require partials, then we also offer the latest flexible Valplast materials. These partials tend to be more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing as there are no visible metal clasps.
Suffering from loose dentures?
Many people suffer from loose dentures and eating solid foods can often be a problem, affecting the quality of your life. Many patients come to us saying that they cannot remember the last time that they could comfortably bite into an apple! Here at Andover Smile Centre we can secure your set using either dental implants or mini implants. Implants provide the solid support they require for you to get on with your life without worrying about looseness. Implant-supported dentures can be a life changing experience with many patients being able to enjoy the foods they haven’t been able to eat for many years.
