Partial dentures, including the single tooth (flipper), are the most cost effective way of replacing missing teeth.
Sports/accident related tooth loss is very common, anybody any age who’s missing teeth can benefit from partial dentures. Partial dentures look just like the real thing and are almost unrecognisable from natural teeth.
When you have gaps in your teeth, this can allow the remainder teeth to move, having Partial dentures to fill these gaps will prevent your teeth from moving, leaving you with a natural smile and comfortable eating habits.
Partial dentures help you look younger, and may help you pronounce words better due to missing teeth.
Full dentures, known as complete dentures or false teeth, are prosthetic devices that replace all of your natural teeth.
You have the option of having them fitted to your top or bottom gum line or both, and are fitted in place by suction and/or the help of an oral adhesive. Likewise with partial dentures, they are easily removable.
Full dentures differ from partial dentures by replacing all natural teeth, whereas partial dentures replace only some of the missing teeth.
Technology has come along way over the last 20 years, full dentures are natural looking and can sometimes be even more aesthetically pleasing than the original teeth.
If you decide to have some or all of your natural teeth removed, immediate dentures are a complete denture or partial denture inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal.
When an immediate denture is inserted the same day of your old teeth being extracted, it will act as a bandage to protect the tissues in your mouth, aid to reduce bleeding and lastly will help you to establish your speech patterns earlier.
We are with you every step of the way if you go down the path of teeth removal, as there are several advantages of an immediate denture. The greatest benefit is that you will never appear in public without teeth.
