Dental implants are becoming increasingly popular and a highly effective way of replacing missing teeth. It is an essential substitute for a natural tooth root and grows together with your jaw bone to function just like a natural tooth. Once placed implants provide long-term support for crowns, bridges or dentures.
Dental implants do not rely on adjacent teeth and require no preparation of surrounding teeth. It is for these reasons they are generally the best option for replacing missing teeth.
A bridge is used to replace a gap and restore a natural pleasing appearance. There are different types of bridge options depending on the size of the gap and health of the surrounding teeth. Our dentists will be able to advice you the best suitable option.
Sinuses are cavities inside the structure of our skull. When we lose a tooth, the bone around the root area starts to recede. This can lead to the sinus expanding into the tooth root area. If you choose to have an Implant, there may not be sufficient bone to support it. Special material can be inserted to encourage bone re-growth and ‘lift’ the sinus. Over time, the bone will re-grow, providing enough bone to support the Implant.
Replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. Dentures can replace natural teeth and provide support for the cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak.
Well-made dentures enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. A partial denture fills in the spaces created by a few lost or missing teeth, and can be attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.
At Widnes Dental practice we are privileged to work alongside some superb dental technicians to provide you with cosmetic, comfortable dentures which you will be very happy with.
Millions of people around the world are missing all their teeth in their upper or lower jaw. Many of them struggle to keep their dentures secure.
Dentures become loose over a period of time because the bone begins to recede away. This means that your original denture no longer fits the mouth as it once did. This can lead to numerous problems such as ulcers that make the dentures uncomfortable and inability to chew and enjoy food.
We find our patients can find loose dentures embarrassing and are afraid to talk about it. Every conversation with your dentist is confidential, we are here to help so you can enjoy the confidence that comes with a secure, perfect smile.
If you are embarrassed about loose dentures, not being able to eat the foods that you love and fed up with denture adhesives; there is now a way to make your dentures work for you and it’s called denture stabilization, this uses dental implants to fix and secure the dentures in place.
