Are you tired of living with teeth that cause you endless problems? A brand new denture could be your key to enjoying life again.
A denture is a set of false teeth that can replace one or two missing teeth or an entire arch of teeth. A denture can rest directly on your gums if you have no teeth left, or it can clip onto your remaining teeth.
At Allsopp Dental we have a complete range of dentures for you to choose from.
Tooth loss has far-reaching effects on both your confidence and on your overall health.
Without teeth, your smile will look aged and shrunken. Even the loss of just a few teeth can drastically change your appearance. A lack of teeth also affects the way you eat and your choice in foods. If you cannot chew properly, then your diet may be high in soft foods that contain little nutrition.
You may need a denture if you have lost all of your natural teeth or if most of your remaining teeth are failing and cannot be restored to a functional state.
The benefits of having a denture include:
Making a quality denture can take either a few weeks or a few months. If your mouth is ready to be fitted for a denture, then your treatment will take less time. If you need to have some teeth extracted beforehand, however, then this will add time to your treatment plan.
The denture process includes:
The exact process for getting a denture varies from patient to patient, but you can be assured of our support and attention to detail every step of the way. One of our skilled dentists will work closely with you to ensure that you get a beautiful and comfortable denture.
We offer full and partial acrylic dentures and dentures with metal frames. If you need a denture on the NHS, we can help you because we are a mixed practice offering both private and NHS services.
Dentures are plates of false teeth that rest on top of the gums or existing natural teeth. Dental implants, on the other hand, are surgical inserts that fit inside the bone beneath the gums. While dentures rely on superficial structures in your mouth for stability, implants are anchored directly to your bone.
A denture needs to be replaced more than once in your lifetime, but implants are usually a once-in-a-lifetime kind of treatment.
You can enjoy the benefits of both implants and dentures by getting a denture that is supported by implants. Dr Jonathan Allsopp is an experienced implantologist who can provide you with an implant denture.
It takes some practice to get used to eating with a denture. Dentures do not work the same way natural teeth or dental implants do. You will have less sensation when you eat and you may have to cut your food into smaller bites than usual, but a little practice will help you feel more confident when you eat..
The best way to decide is to have a personal consultation with a dentist who provides both dentures and dental implants. You can schedule an in-office dental implant consultation at Allsopp Dental for just £100. We will review all of your options and recommend the treatment that suits your needs the best.
An adhesive is not necessary as long as your denture is made well. Dentures are designed to stay in place with a perfect fit. However, wearing an adhesive cream can help you to feel more secure in your new denture as you get used to it.
A denture is not a substitute for taking good care of your oral health. Even if you have no teeth left, you should still carefully clean your denture, tongue, and gums daily to prevent bad breath and infections.
Here’s how you can plan and schedule treatment for a new denture here at Allsopp Dental.
We will examine your teeth and gums, answer your questions, and design a custom treatment plan.
After reviewing your treatment options, we will help you choose a flexible payment plan.
