Removable dentures at a great price savings!

Besides our state-of-the-art technology in the field of cosmetic dentistry, we care for patients who have only a few remaining teeth, and for whom a fixed bridge is no longer a viable solution. As time passes, more of these problems occur, and many people are worried about being toothless. In fact the older we are the more attention we have to pay to a sound bite as it affects digestion in the stomach and intestinal tract. Many elderly patients suffer from serious gastrointestinal diseases as a result of inadequate restorative dental work.
Apart from the restoration of biting/chewing ability, the aesthetic appearance of a youthful, harmonious smile is just as important for the elderly as it is for the younger generation.

There is a very diverse range of complete and partial removable dentures. Almost every patient is recommended a different approach based on the number and location of remaining teeth. A removable prosthesis is often combined with fixed replacements (e.g., bridges) and implants as well.
The design of removable dentures requires great care, and many options may be considered. Alternative options may be recommended in accordance with the dental status of the patient and also their budget.

Dentures are false teeth, mostly made of plastic, that replace missing or lost teeth. As they are a compromise solution, dentures are for the majority the last resort. Loosing teeth is not a necessary part of the normal aging process. Despite this, many people believe that dentures are the only solution at their age. If you take good care of your teeth and do everything to protect them against gum disease, you should be able to keep your teeth for a lifetime.

Saving natural teeth - even a few - is very important since natural teeth or even parts of them can help a great deal in preserving bone in the jaw. The remaining teeth may be able to act as supports for partial or over-dentures, or even fixed bridges if they are stable and healthy. This is why saving natural teeth is a priority for our dentists.

Dentures can be either complete or partial. Complete dentures are designed to replace a full set of upper or lower teeth. For better stability, removable dentures are sometimes supported by a few implants to keep them in place. Partial dentures on the other hand, replace only a few teeth and they are attached by different means or systems to the neighbouring teeth.

There has been a significant improvement in the field of dentures in recent times. State-of-the-art technologies and materials are now replacing traditional ones, so today’s dentists can create dentures that fit more comfortably, and look much more natural than they did in the past.

Dentures, however, remain a compromise solution, and problems may occur. They sometimes become loose, start clicking or irritating your gum. These problems can be resolved by readjusting or relining the dentures.

It must be said that although dentures look almost like natural teeth, they never work like a set of natural teeth. One may find it hard to get used to them and even everyday actions such as speaking and eating may feel different. You will have to learn how to use and adjust to your dentures. For some people, this may take several months.
