Why should I replace missing teeth with dentures in Farnham?

Removable dentures have been around for a long time. Perhaps your grandparents had them and maybe their grandparents did too. George Washington was the owner of many sets of dentures and many people in the UK are wearing full or partial dentures today. Over time, dentures have gradually become more natural-looking, more durable, and more comfortable. This means that, even today, patients can benefit from using a tooth replacement option that is thousands of years old.


At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we have various solutions for missing teeth and our experienced dentists are well-equipped to offer advice on all of them. Our dentures in Farnham, in particular, are lightweight, high-quality and are customised to fit and function with your existing teeth. All of them are created by Frank Johnson, our talented clinical dental technician at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic.


Types of dentures


Our dental practice offers two types of removable dentures – premier dentures and essential dentures. Premier dentures in Farnham can either be full or partial and are carefully crafted to replicate your smile. Frank will work from impressions, old photographs and digital imaging in order to achieve the best result possible. Premier dentures are so natural that most patients forget that they wear them through the day.

Essential dentures, on the other hand, are more budget-friendly without compromising on the quality. These dentures consist of plastic teeth on a strong acrylic base with excellent stain and breakage resistance.


Why choose dentures?


Tooth loss can cause your jawbone to deteriorate due to the lack of constant stimulation caused by biting and chewing. If your jawbone has already suffered extensive damage, dental implants may not be a viable option. In a situation like this, it is often more affordable and convenient to replace missing teeth with dentures.

Dentures also help your remaining teeth stay in place and preserve the shape of your face. Patients who cannot afford to have dental implants, may also consider more secure and permanent solutions such as implant-supported dentures.
