Dentures

If you have missing teeth, you have likely considered dentures.

Dentures are a set of replacement teeth that are removable. Dentures will take a little time to feel comfortable. But they will improve your quality of life – as they will restore your confidence and the function to your smile.

Two types of dentures are used – complete and partial dentures. When all your teeth are missing, we provide a complete denture. When some of your natural teeth remain, you will need a partial denture.

Dentures can benefit people of all ages who have missing teeth. However, some patients may want a life-like replacement for missing teeth – either dental implants or implant-supported dentures.

Patients who choose dental implants have the greatest satisfaction, as they more closely resemble the feel, look and function of natural teeth.

YOUR 4-STEP PROCESS FOR DENTURES

  • 1 Book your new client consultation
  • 2 Come in for a full dental examination
  • 3 Your dentist will discuss any treatments you need and then create your bespoke treatment plan
  • 4 Enjoy a healthy, long lasting smile

Implant Supported Dentures

An implant supported denture – also known as a denture implant – is a denture secured in place by four or more dental implants.

Implant-supported dentures are typically made for the lower jaw because traditional dentures tend to be less stable in this area.

A denture can be made to fit an upper jaw, but patients may not like the feel across the roof of the mouth. Some don’t like using a denture adhesive. We can create a denture implant for either the upper or lower jaw that best fits your needs.

Benefits of Denture Implants

– Implant-supported dentures tend to fit than a removable denture
– Denture implants improve your speech more, and there’s no worry about the denture becoming loose.
– A denture implant allows you to eat foods that are not normally possible with a removable denture.

Jaw Problems & Headaches

Teeth that are out of line, heavily worn or constantly breaking, fillings that fracture or crowns that keep coming off are all signs of occlusal problems. Your teeth may also be tender to bite on or may ache constantly.

TMJ: Clicking, grinding or pain in the joint, ringing or buzzing in the ears, and difficulty in opening or closing your mouth could all be due to your teeth not meeting together properly.

Muscles: If your jaw is in the wrong position, the muscles have to work a lot harder and tire. This leads to muscle spasm. The main symptoms are headaches or migraine, especially first thing in the morning. Pain behind the eyes, sinus pain, and pains in your neck and shoulders. Sometimes even the back muscles are involved

How can I tell if I have a problem?

Many people have an imperfect occlusion, yet they never suffer any symptoms, as they adjust to their problems. Occasionally, in times of stress and tension, the symptoms may appear and then go away immediately. Or, your teeth and gums may be affected straight away and instead of headaches you may suffer from:-

– Flattened, worn teeth or chipped edges on the incisors
– Broken teeth, fillings or crowns
– Loose teeth
– Continual sensitivity
– Toothache with no apparent cause

If you think you have any of these problems please consult your dentist. Please also look at the link to BSOS on the links page of our website.

FAQ

If your teeth are too far out of line, or in a totally incorrect bite position, it may be necessary to use orthodontic treatment to move the teeth into a better position.

Occlusal appliances. These can be either soft or hard acrylic. The soft appliances are generally used for young patients, the hard ones for adults. The hard acrylic appliances need to be adjusted very carefully so that when you bite on it, all your teeth meet evenly. This helps reduce muscle spasm.

Tooth adjustment: Careful adjustment of the biting surfaces of your teeth can allow the jaw to re-position into a more comfortable relaxed position.

Replacement of teeth: Loss of the molar teeth can result in undue strain on the jaw joint. Replacement of missing teeth is not usually done until a firm diagnosis of the problem has been confirmed by the use of occlusal appliances.

Medication: Some drugs can help in certain cases, but this is usually only temporary. HRT can help some women.

If your teeth don’t fit together properly, you can have problems not only in your teeth but also the gums, the joint itself or the muscles that move the jaw.

The letters TMJ stand for “tempero-mandibular joint”. This is the joint connecting your lower jaw with your skull.

Dental occlusion is another name for the way your teeth meet when your jaws bite together.
