Complete Denture Stabilisation Services Birmingham

We custom make all of our dentures so they are made to fit your mouths perfectly. It is expected with all dentures that there will be a level of adjustment after you initially have them. This is because our mouths are adaptive and getting used to your new dentures will take some time. You may feel that they are slightly catching your gums which causes irritations. We can adjust them so this doesn’t happen. By making them a more precise and comfortable fit, will enable them to stay in place better as well. Over time our mouths can change which means our once well fitted dentures may start to feel loose and not as secure. This is down to bone resorption, and is a common side affect of having missing teeth.

If you would like to have a more secure option, we can discuss various denture stabilisation techniques. The most secure way to do so is through the use of dental implants. This is when a dentist will place the implants into your jaw and we would then secure the denture on top. We work with local implant dentists so you get the best possible care.

Dental implants will act like the new roots of your teeth. Because they are placed into the jaw bone they will also promote healthy bone growth so it helps to stabilise your jaw. This is considered the gold standard way in tooth replacement and your implants dentist will be able to asses if you are suitable to have implants.

To discuss your denture questions, we are more than happy to see you for a free consultation.

Can Dentures Be Adjusted?

Yes and it is expected that dentures will need a certain level of adjustments to get the perfect fit for you. We take accurate primary and secondary impressions of your mouths but there is an element of adaptive-ness of how your mouths settle down with your new dentures.

If your not 100% happy with how your new dentures feel, we advise you to pop back in so we can look at your dentures to see what improvements can be made. You may find that it is just rubbing ever so slightly and we will be able to see what exactly needs to be done. The adjustments are all included in the treatment plan to get you where you want to be.

Will My Dentures Always Fit Perfectly?

Unfortunately when we lose our teeth we suffer from what is known as bone resorption. This is when the bone fades away from the areas of no natural teeth. How quick this can occur will vary from patient to patient as it can happen at different speeds. What this means for your dentures is over time you may find that they start to feel loose and not as comfortable. A simple reline may be required or in the more severe circumstances, a new denture may be required. Some bases of dentures are more difficult to reline than others but when you first get your dentures we will go through all the suitable options for you.

If you are looking for a more permanent way to replace your missing teeth, then dental implants may be suitable for you. We work with local implant dentists to achieve this.

Can I Sleep With My Dentures In?

You can sleep with your dentures in but we strongly recommend that you gives your gums a rest each night and that you store them in a glass of water.

Modern day dentures are very good and efficient at replacing missing teeth and the more precise a fit, the better experience you will have. But at the end of the day, a custom made appliance such as a denture, will always be considered as a foreign body. Because of this, we do recommend at night time your gums are allowed to rest from your denture.

Its very important that you don’t allow your dentures to dry out. Dentures need to be kept moist and during the day this is achieved through your saliva. We recommend a glass of water to put your teeth in to stop them from breaking. As dentures dry out, cracks can appear and they can eventually break.

If your dentures do start to show signs of damage, we advise to immediately store them in water and bring them in for us to look at them. The quicker we are able to see them, it is more likely we are able to do a no hassle repair. Never use glue on your dentures as this can make them much worse and does increase the chances that you may need a completely new set of dentures.

Best Way To Keep Dentures In

When you are thinking about replacing your missing teeth, one of the most common questions that tend to pop up is how will they stay in place? and what is the best options.

Dentures are traditionally held in place by using the suction of your gums to keep them in place. By being made for your mouth precisely, they will sit in the correct position comfortably. If your dentures have not been carefully made for your mouth, they can cause sores as they rub and you may find you have to rely on something like denture fixatives to help keep them in place.

Partial dentures can use what is know as precision attachments that takes advantages of your remaining teeth to offer stability and security to your new teeth.

Depending on what type of denture you require, we will discuss the different options that can also accompany that treatment.

One of the most securest ways and often considered the gold standard in tooth replacement is through the use of dental implants. For this option we would work with a local implant dentist who places the implants for you. Implants are titanium or ceramic screws that are placed into your jaw bone and act as new roots for your teeth. We then custom make a denture that will then sit on top of these implants. The implants help anchor the denture in place. This is the most expensive option as does require the most treatment, and you will be seen by ourselves and a dentist who places the implants. But it does give you piece of mind as when your eating, talking, drinking or socializing, you will know that your dentures are going no where.
