If you are considering dentures, already have them or you are reading about dentures for someone else, its likely that you have some questions about them. Dentures come in many forms, and choosing the right denture for you can be confusing.
Finding the perfect fit for you is very important as dentures can improve your quality of life, or in some cases can be more a hassle than a help. Here at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham, we believe that should never be the case, and we do everything we can to make sure your denture fits perfectly.
Choosing the perfect fit
In Farnham, dentures are crafted specifically for you, and are made to fit perfectly. We use special measurements, old photographs and digital imaging to create a denture that fits you perfectly and functions well too.
At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, our clinical dental technician, Frank Johnson, offers two different types of removable denture.
Premier dentures are handmade to reproduce your smile as faithfully as possible. These are often reproduced so accurately and look so natural that other people probably wont be able to tell youre wearing dentures.
Essential dentures are our other type of removable dentures in Farnham, which are made from durable plastic on an acrylic base, both designed to have excellent stain resistance and breakage resistance. Each tooth is constructed in layers to create a natural look.
Our clinical dental technician offers a free denture consultation to advise you on which type would suit you best, taking cost, time and other factors into account.
Implant supported dentures for extra stability
One problem that long-time denture users experience is jawbone shrinkage. Our jawbones need stimulation, which is usually provided by the roots of our teeth. When we have lost all of our teeth, the jaw bone begins to shrink, creating a sunken look to your lips and cheeks.
A more permanent solution when considering dentures is an implant-stabilised denture. This treatment uses dental implants to provide stimulation to your jawbone and provide a stable anchor for your dentures to attach to.
Dental implants are regarded as the most reliable option for tooth replacement as they work with the natural function of your jaw, making them a secure and long-lasting solution.
