Are your dentures troublesome? Are your teeth failing you and you are facing a life with dentures? When was the last time you could enjoy eating exactly what you wanted without worrying that your denture or natural teeth were going to let you down? We might just have the answer for you here at Diana Dental!
Our teeth play an important part in our lives; they let us enjoy the food we love; help us feel confident; give our face structure and shape and aid our speech. Every tooth that is missing can have a negative impact on these factors.
If you have lots of missing teeth dentures are often the first solution that springs to mind, they are fairly quick to make and relatively cheap compared to other options available. However denture wearers often complain about problems with their prosthesis- difficulty eating and discomfort are the main ones. Modern dental solutions can help bring back the full function of your teeth and your quality of life for both denture wearers and patients who have their own teeth which are failing.
If your natural teeth are failing, whether it be a gum or decay problem, this can cause just as much stress and as many limitations that a poorly fitted denture can bring.
We can help you find the solution to replace badly fitting dentures or a failing dentition with a set of natural looking fully functioning teeth.
Why not start preparing a list of all the foods you have been craving for years??
What are the consequences of badly fitting dentures?
Discomfort and inconvenient handling- unsecured dentures can move in your mouth when you eat and speak and cause embarrassment and soreness.
Difficulty chewing and speaking- you can find it difficult to chew with dentures and it can influence the foods that you eat, if your palate is covered this can also affect the way in which you eat. Dentures can also affect your speech and can cause embarrassment when you try to pronounce certain words.
Changes to your appearance- When your jaw bone is no longer stimulated by your own teeth then it starts to shrink away, this can make it very difficult to get dentures to fit and it can also cause a loss of support in your face because your lips are no longer supported from the inside. Your chin can start to move forward and upward and your lips can turn inwards.
What about unhealthy teeth?
If you leave unhealthy teeth in your mouth then you are at a high risk of infection from these teeth, the same if your gum condition is poor. Having all of your natural teeth removed is a massive decision and one which should be thoroughly discussed with both your dentist and loved ones before the decision is made.
So what is the right solution for me?
A modern dental solution supported by dental implants is the best alternative to poorly fitting dentures. Depending on each patients situation 2 or 4 implants can make a massive difference in stabilising your denture or giving you a full set of fixed teeth with the All on 4 option.
The All on 4 option will give you a fully fixed dentition in one day. You will be provided with a temporary restoration and then this will be replaced with your permanent restoration a few months later- there will be no more taking dentures in and out and you will be able to eat, speak and enjoy life with a new found confidence that this treatment will bring.
Restorations which are supported by implants look and feel just like your natural teeth, they are biocompatible which means your body accepts them. They bring back the normal function of your natural teeth and your clear speech for your next work project or social event.
They are fixed into your jawbone making them more stable and comfortable than dentures and they are durable- with proper care and good oral hygiene they can last you for many, many years!
