Replace missing teeth and restore your confidence with top
In an ideal world, we’d all retain our natural teeth for the duration of our lives.
Unfortunately, tooth loss is very common. Whether you’ve lost teeth or needed to have them extracted, if you have more than a few gaps in your smile, it’s guaranteed to have an effect on the way that you use your teeth and your confidence in your smile. Fortunately, dentures are an effective way of replacing a few or many missing teeth and restoring your smile.
I am an elderly anxious lady who cares about her appearance. The care, advise, support and excellent work I have received from Dr Bose and his team over the last 6 years has been life changing.
The process to get dentures takes several appointments, all of which are carried out at IKON Dental Specialists Ealing dental practice.
It’s normal to take a few weeks for you to adapt to wearing dentures. You may find that they change the way in which you usually speak and/or eat, but most patients find that they quickly adjust to life as a denture-wearer.
There are a variety of advantages when choosing dentures to replace several or entire arches of missing teeth. These include:
Dentures are removable which makes it fairly easy to keep them in good condition. Rather than brushing them with a toothbrush and toothpaste, you’ll need to use a specific type of brush and cleaning solution that doesn’t damage the material of the dentures. Your IKON denture specialists will give you specific information on the best methods to preserve the function and appearance of your dentures.
Absolutely, yes. Just because you don’t have any natural teeth doesn’t mean you can skip out on your oral hygiene routine. Your gums can still become coated in plaque and bacteria, and this puts you at risk of gum disease. Patients with dentures should still gently brush their gums twice every day using toothpaste, as well as their tongue and the roof of their mouth. You should also still see your dentist for regular check-ups.
Precisely how long your dentures will last will depend primarily on how well you look after them. They are fairly fragile and any droppages will nearly always cause damage that will require maintenance or repair. On average, a denture will last around 10 years before it requires replacing. However, if your jawbone changes shape, it may be necessary to have your dentures remade to ensure that they fit as well as possible.
Most people who have missing teeth are able to benefit from having their teeth replaced with dentures. However, before you can go ahead with treatment, you will need to have your suitability assessed by our knowledgeable and experienced dental team.
