Sometimes, despite our best efforts, teeth get lost- either through gum disease, injury or decay- and it can be devastating to your confidence, your looks and your overall health.
Replacing these missing teeth with dentures not only restores your smile but they will make it easier to eat, speak and will support sagging facial muscle for a younger appearance.
A set of full dentures are made of a removable acrylic base (plate) and a set of crafted, natural looking acrylic teeth which fit over your gums, whilst a partial denture is attached to the teeth on either side of a gap.
To make sure your denture fits correctly and as comfortably as possible, your William Street dentist will take an impression and make precise measurements which they will then give to a technician to custom build your dentures.
I was petrified of prior dentists..i have been here 15 odd years and he is fantastic with me.. He knows how to calm me and explains everything and if i need extra freeze no problem..
It may take some adjustment but most denture patients quickly learn how to eat normally again, though you will need to be careful with hard or sticky food. Using a small amount of denture adhesive will stabilise your dentures which will help speed along the learning process.
Areas where we may have performed new extractions prior to fitting your new dentures may be tender or uncomfortable for a while, sometimes as long as a few weeks. However, as your mouth gets used to your dentures they should start to feel more natural and secure.
The type of denture that’s right for you depends on the number of teeth we will be replacing and the overall health of your mouth.
If you have had all your teeth removed and the tissue is healthy we will fit you with Full Dentures.
However, if you are only missing a few teeth, Partial Dentures may be a better solution.
You will need to remove, clean and store your dentures every night before you go to sleep to allow your gums and jaw bone a chance to ‘breathe’ and relax.
We will show you an easy daily morning routine which includes gently brushing your gums, tongue and palate with a soft-bristled toothbrush to stimulate circulation in your mouth tissue and prevent plaque buildup before you put your dentures in for the day.
