Dentures − Orpington
If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether you need partial or full dentures, they can be essential not only to improving the look of your smile but also to your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat better than before you lost your teeth, dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & cause a more aged appearance. Dentures can also improve your speech. Denture maintenance combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing can guarantee you’ll lead a more comfortable & healthy life.

If you are missing several teeth on either your upper or your lower jaw, partial dentures can help restore your smile & its function. Partial dentures are made from a framework of metal & acrylic (plastic), or acrylic & nylon that are colored to match your natural teeth & gums. Clasps, either metal or plastic, hug your remaining teeth to keep the denture in place. Each partial denture is custom-made using a model of your mouth so they fit very well. Partial dentures can help you speak more normally & help you get a lot of your chewing capability back.
Often done in a single visit, mini dental implants are the new & low-cost way to secure your dentures, at less than half the cost of traditional dental implants! Even patients who have been told they aren’t candidates for traditional implants may benefit from mini implants. In some cases, your existing dentures can be used, making the procedure that much more affordable.
If you have a few or all of your teeth missing, one solution is to have a denture.
This is how they work:
A denture is made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give your mouth a natural appearance.
After impressions are taken, a denture is designed in a dental laboratory.
Dentures are made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove them for cleaning.
When you wear a denture for the first time it may take some getting used to when speaking or eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care when conducting your hygiene regime so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. The hygienist will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this.
If you have loose or ill-fitting dentures, your ability to eat and speak may become affected. Due to advances in dentistry, there is now a procedure whereby your denture can be fixed to your jaw with dental implants. This treatment, known as implant overdentures or denture stabilisation, offers patients with dentures a more permanent solution and can improve quality of life significantly. You will be able to enjoy your favourite foods again and feel comfortable smiling, safe in the knowledge that your dentures are staying put.
Here is how it works:
You will require surgery to have the implants placed into your jaw.
Once the implants have integrated with the bone and surrounding tissues for a period of time, your dentures are placed on top of the implants through a range of special fixtures.
This means your dentures can still be removed for cleaning, but will stay put once in place.
