Why are some dentures better than others?

That’s because there are now more types of dentures than ever before

 

We think that it is probably fair to say that most people will have pre-conceived ideas and opinions about dentures. Probably these will be based on their own observations of older family members who wore dentures. May we just say that dentures have changed. And changed in a big way. Yes, you can still get the traditional dentures that are removable and rely on suction from the gums to keep them in place. But now, thanks to modern dental advances, you can have far more retentive and stable solutions that are more attractive in appearance, more comfortable to wear, more secure and which provide extra confidence and pleasure when you eat.

 

At Carisbrook, we are widely recognised as being one of the UK’s leading specialist dental practices and today more dentists, particularly from the North West, now refer their own patients to us when they require dentures.

 

Among the latest techniques designed to secure dentures in place and to avoid embarrassing incidents such as when traditional dentures literally ‘fall out’, we are now able to use dental implants or a patient’s own natural teeth to act as secure anchor-points.

 

With implants, we surgically secure them directly into the patient’s gum, which means in turn that the dentures can be easily attached so that there is no chance of slipping or falling out.  Patients will have total confidence that their new dentures will not affect their speech, nor will they move or become dislodged while they are eating. Dining out with family or friends will once again become a pleasure.

 

Another option, especially if you retain some of your own teeth and only require a partial denture, is that we can use your surrounding teeth as secure fixing points in order to ensure your new dental bridge does not become loose or cause you any embarrassment when you’re in a conversation or out dining.

 

No two patients are exactly the same. Their individual mouth structure, gum formation, even the shape of their face and lips can all make a difference to the type of dentures that we recommend.

This patient felt that her existing dentures aged her, but the new dentures we made for her improved not only her smile and her facial profile but they also gave a huge boost to her self-confidence.

 

The best thing to do, if you wish to know more about all the different denture options we can provide, is to make an appointment to speak to one of our highly qualified and expert dentists. We can then examine your mouth, assess your personal situation, discuss your own requirements and expectations and we will then provide you with our recommendations for the best complete or partial dentures solution.
