Avoid Having Problems With Your Dentures At Christmas

As Christmas is just around the corner, we will all be getting in the festive mood. Good company, seeing family and friends. The mad rush of buying presents last minute (not looking at you husbands/boyfriends…).

The madness and joy all mixed into one is very exciting for all involved. But one thing that can dampen the spirits is trying to enjoy your food at Christmas when you have dentures.

Implant retained dentures could be the answer you are looking for. They offer a fixed and stable way for you to replace your missing teeth. We work with local implant dentists who can place the implants and we restore your new denture on top. To find out more information, call us and book your free consultation today.

The Time Of Year For Socialising

This time of year is office parties galore! Yours, your partners, and other social events you will be attending throughout this festive season. There are enough things to worry about without your teeth adding to the problems. Secure teeth are possible and we will be more than happy to explore this option with you.

Prepare For Christmas

As we get closer to Christmas, time will be of the essence if you are looking for new teeth. We will always endeavor to get to the bottom of your denture worries as quickly as possible. Implant retained dentures can be a longer treatment than getting a new set of removable dentures so we implore you to contact us sooner rather than later for your free consultation.

Better Fitting Dentures Makes A Happy Patient

Dentures overtime can start to become ill fitting as our mouths change. This make it harder to enjoy our favorite food and this is especially true during Christmas.

A custom made denture can make your life easier. By being a closer fit, its not only more comfortable but is also more functional and allows you to enjoy your food again.

Do You Suffer From:

Does this sound like a familiar scenario:

  • Having to step out of a meal to reapply your fixative?
  • Finding sores as your eating, and not enjoying the meal?
  • Avoiding the nice, tempting hard icing cake or the nutted xmas pudding?
  • Sitting in a quiet spot of the restaurant away from other people?
  • Leaving early as you cannot bear to wear your teeth any longer?
  • Finding your teeth are ruling your life too much?
  • Not enjoying Christmas as you should be…

How To Get Dentures?

If you think you need dentures or a dentist has discussed with you the option of dentures, then you may be ready to start your journey towards a new smile.

If you have no natural teeth left, we can book you straight in for a free consultation. If you have any remaining teeth left, your dentist will need to prescribe you over to our care once you have had your remaining teeth assessed (we are unable to see you until a dentist has checked your remaining teeth).

The first step will be to discuss with you what you are looking for and what options are suitable for you. This can be done in a free consultation. All of our dentures are custom made by our skilled technicians. We have clinical technicians which are able to see you from your very first appointment to the actual fitting of your dentures. So the person making your dentures will see you at every step of your journey.

We believe strongly in natural smiles and strive to get a smile to suit your personality e.g. a younger person with younger looking teeth etc. We like to include you as the patient in the design process so you can get the smile you really want.

We take a couple of careful impressions to get your mouth measurements that starts the journey. From these impressions we will make a mock up of the dentures for the try stage. From start to finish it can be expected that about 5 appointments will be required. It is very common for adjustments to be made to your dentures at each step to ensure that when you leave you have the perfect smile which is functional and comfortable.

My Dentures Are Hurting

If you start to notice that your dentures are starting to hurt or cause gum irritations, then it may mean that you need what is known as a denture reline. This is when we take the base of the denture and reline it to fit your mouth more comfortably.

The reason why your once well fitted denture may start to feel a bit loose or uncomfortable is because our mouths can change over time. This is very common when you have lost your natural teeth as the bodies natural response is for the gums and bone to start to recede. How quick this occurs will vary from person to person.

So denture relines are very common to ensure you denture stays comfortable. As part of getting a new denture, we do always recommend regular denture check ups in the year so we can ensure that your dentures are fitting nicely and will not cause you any issues.

When gum irritation does occur, we always recommend taking the dentures out to allow your gums and mouth time to recover from the irritation. As a badly fitting denture can rub and cause more irritation. When you first leave with your dentures we will always ensure your dentures are fitted well and comfortable. It is expected that a slight adjustment may be required, but this is common as any custom made device for the body will require a level of adjustment. How quick you suffer from bone resorption will vary from patient to patient.

Why Should You Get Dentures?

The simple answer to this question will depend on your current situation with your teeth. If you have lost a couple of your teeth or in the worse case scenario, all of your teeth, then you may be wondering what your options are.

For patients with a few missing teeth, we can make partial dentures to replace multiple missing teeth and to fit in with your remaining teeth. We believe in high quality false teeth that blend in with your natural teeth. We can match the shade of your remaining teeth so they are hard to tell that they are not your own teeth.

As well as the obvious aesthetic benefits of getting replacement teeth, there are also a functional benefit. Our teeth are very important to us and we can take them for granted. Eating for one can be difficult when you have missing teeth. But by replacing those important teeth, you can start to enjoy your favorite foods again.

When it comes to anything in life, comfort is always a very important factor. Traditional dentures have a bad stigma attached to them for not being very comfortable. A lot of this comes down to ensuring that your denture has been 100% custom made. We make all of our dentures individually for our patients so they are unique to your mouths. Every mouth is different and this is why it is important you have a technician make your denture exactly to your specification.

We offer free consultations to assess your case and discuss the suitable options available to you. Please do not hesitate to call us today.

When Should I See A Clinical Dental Technician?

This is a very good question. Dental technicians and clinical dental technicians deal with all kinds of dentures. The main difference between the two technicians is the fact clinical dental technicians are able to see patients from start to finish for the whole denture treatment.

Do I Need To See My Dentist First

Yes and no. If you have any remaining teeth left and would like to have a partial denture, then you will need to see a dentist for them to check the health of your remaining teeth and they can then refer you over to the care of our clinical dental technicians. If you have no teeth left, you are able to come and see us direct.

What Is The Treatment Process

When you first come to see us we will offer a free consultation to asses your case and discuss what your suitable options are. If you are looking for implant retained dentures we work with local dentists who can place the implants and we will fit the dentures. Clinical dental technicians are able to see the patient they are making the denture for and at every step of the way they will be the main provider for the denture.

Dental technicians will only make the dentures for patients that the dentist has sent over the impressions to and will not actually meet the patient.

This what makes clinical dental technicians so special as meeting the patient gives them a huge advantage of ensuring the denture they are making will look natural and compliment the patient in every way.
