Who Needs Dentures?

Who Need Composite Bonding in Ediburgh - Abbeymount Dental CareDentures are essential dental prosthetics recommended for individuals who have experienced tooth loss and require a reliable solution to replace missing teeth:

  1. Complete Tooth Loss: Individuals who have lost all their natural teeth in either the upper or lower arch will benefit from complete dentures. These dentures restore a full set of teeth and support essential oral functions like chewing, speaking, and maintaining facial structure.
  2. Partial Tooth Loss: For those with some remaining natural teeth, partial dentures offer an effective solution. Partial dentures replace missing teeth while preserving existing ones, preventing dental alignment issues and maintaining oral functionality.

  6. Dietary Freedom: With dentures, individuals can enjoy a diverse range of foods, ensuring a balanced and nutritious diet.
  7. Customisation: Dentures can be custom-designed to match the individual’s oral anatomy, preferences, and facial features, ensuring a comfortable and natural fit.
  8. Affordability: Dentures offer an affordable tooth replacement solution compared to alternatives like dental implants.
  9. Removability: Dentures are removable, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance, as well as providing comfort during sleep.
  10. Longevity: With proper care and regular check-ups, dentures can provide years of reliable service, offering lasting value for patients.
  11. Preservation of Facial Structure: Dentures support facial muscles and prevent sagging or sunken appearance often associated with missing teeth.
  12. Versatility: Dentures come in various types, including complete, partial, and implant-supported options, catering to different tooth loss scenarios.

The Procedure

The process of obtaining dentures involves several steps, ensuring that the final prosthesis fits comfortably and functions effectively. Below is a detailed overview of the denture procedure:

  1. Initial Consultation: The journey begins with a consultation with our dentist, during which your oral health is assessed, and your denture needs and preferences are discussed.
  2. Comprehensive Examination: Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination, which may include X-rays or impressions to evaluate the condition of your remaining teeth and gums.
  3. Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, the dentist will create a personalised treatment plan that outlines the type of dentures needed, whether complete or partial, and the materials to be used.
  4. Impressions and Measurements: Precise impressions and measurements of your mouth are taken to ensure that the dentures are custom-made to fit your unique oral anatomy.
  5. Denture Design: Dentures are custom-designed to match the shape, size, and colour of your natural teeth, ensuring a lifelike appearance.
  6. Trial Fitting (Optional): For complete dentures, a trial fitting may be done with wax models to assess their fit, comfort, and aesthetics. Adjustments are made if necessary.
  7. Partial Denture Framework (If Applicable): In the case of partial dentures, a framework is created to attach the denture to your remaining natural teeth.
  8. Final Placement: Once the dentures meet your approval, they are securely placed in your mouth. Complete dentures rest on the gums, while partial dentures are anchored to your natural teeth.
  9. Post-Placement Adjustments: After wearing your dentures for a period, you may require adjustments to ensure they fit comfortably and function effectively.
  10. Denture Care Education: Our dentist will provide instructions on proper denture care, including cleaning and maintenance routines.
  11. Follow-Up Appointments: Regular check-ups with your dentist are essential to monitor the fit of your dentures and address any issues promptly.
