Deciding on and getting dentures can be a long, complicated process. Much depends on the current state of your teeth, so it should a decision best made in consultation with your dentist. By examining your teeth carefully, they will be able to help determine if dentures are the right treatment for you.
At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we provide high-quality, customised dentures that are designed to fit your mouth perfectly. All our dentures in Farnham are manufactured with precision by Frank Johnson, our talented dental technician.
Types of dentures
Dentures are designed to replace all or some of the teeth, and they come in different types. The dentures that replace all the teeth are commonly known as complete or full dentures and they rest on the gums. The stability and retention of these dentures can be improved by attaching them to dental implants.
On the other hand, dentures that replace some, but not all, of the teeth are known as partial dentures. These dentures are securely attached to the teeth that are still present, covering the gaps in your mouth.
At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we also offer cosmetic dentures and essential dentures. Cosmetic or premier dentures are handcrafted to fit your smile perfectly. In order to achieve this degree of precision, Frank Johnson works with old photographs, measurements and digital impressions.
Essential dentures are made of an acrylic base with durable plastic teeth, which cannot be stained easily. These dentures are cheaper than customised cosmetic dentures, but they look natural because they are made from three layers of resin.
Frank will help you decide which dentures are right for you and customise them accordingly to your individual needs.
How do I care for my dentures in Farnham?
Even though dentures are very durable, you are not supposed to brush them with regular toothpaste. After cleaning them thoroughly with a special liquid, you should rinse them and soak them in a water-based cleaning solution overnight. You can wear your dentures at night, but it is better to remove them in order to let your gums relax. You should never wear your dentures 24 hours a day without cleaning them properly.
