Tooth loss can occur at any age as a result of disease or injury. The gaps left behind are an obvious cosmetic burden on your smile, which can affect your confidence. Beyond the aesthetics, the day-to-day challenges of dealing with missing teeth can leave you feeling disheartened. The way you talk, eat and chew can all suffer from tooth loss. You can say goodbye to all of these problems, with effective dental treatment. Dentures are a long-standing solution that restores the form and function of your missing teeth.
Whether you have lost one, several or all of your teeth, dentures provide a reliable solution. Widely available across Surrey, Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham is one of several dental practices that can restore your missing teeth with hard-wearing dentures.
Dentures: The Basics
Dentures are most commonly known as false teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace one or several teeth, while full dentures restore a complete jaw of teeth. With a choice of premier of essential dentures in Farnham, cost and cosmetics are factored into your treatment.
Premier dentures are created based on measurements and digital imaging of your teeth. When combined with old photographs of your smile, your dentures can be handcrafted for a natural look.
Essential dentures are a more cost-effective solution that comes in the form of hard plastic teeth attached to a strong acrylic base. Each tooth is created from three layers of resin, making them highly resistant to staining or breaking.
An experienced dental technician will help you arrive at the right choice for your individual case. Care will be taken to ensure your dentures look the part, with a natural appearance. Their function and fit will also be addressed so you won’t need to endure the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures.
If you’re worried about your dentures slipping, you can opt to have denture stabilisation. This combines the enduring technology behind dentures with the modern invention of dental implants. These small titanium screws are placed directly into the jawbone, where they provide a solid foundation for the attachment of dentures.
Both dentures and denture stabilisation are two effective treatments for tackling tooth loss, which you can explore with a dentist and dental technician.
