Now for some people in Sutton its hard to see the appeal of dentures however over years of dental development in the way they have been designed and the materials used, they look more natural than ever.

Dentures are the cheapest option when it comes to replacing missing teeth, and now with the aid of the mini-implant they stay in the mouth very rigidly.

Mini Implants For Denture- Speak To Dr Carr

4th December, 2014

Time is constantly changing things and technology in dentistry is no exception. We have seen a new generation of dentures emerge that have made an incredible difference to patients. About 20 years ago, you would never have thought about putting the word ‘incredible’ and ‘dentures’ in the same sentence especially if you ask anyone from years ago who had to endure them. When considering dentures there any many different types to take into prospective and you have to answer the question “what will work best for me”. Partial dentures will grip more strongly around remaining teeth which will keep them in place, but this isn’t the only advantages modern dentures have to offer, it’s the materials they are made from and how they look that have made them better than ever before. Partial and full dentures are manufactured from softer more natural looking materials that adhere to the mouth better, avoiding the embarrassment of them falling out. However the ultimate development for the wearer has come from the arrival of mini-implants that lock the dentures firmly into place meaning there will be no worry about a loose denture.

Replacing Missing Teeth In Sutton

14th November, 2013

Tooth loss can possibly lead to further tooth loss if not addressed as the other teeth are exposed to infection and even further movement once one has gone missing.

When looking to fill a gap you have many options but the one you will require rather depends exactly on where the tooth has been lost. A bridge is a brilliant replacement for lost teeth as you are still left with different options. If a tooth has gone between two others, a Maryland bridge is one of the more popular choices. It comes as a single tooth with two pontics which are cemeneted on to the back of the neighbouring teeth, This process causes no damage to your own healthy teeth.

Another option is a bridge that is a new tooth bonded to two crowns which are cemented onto the surrounding teeth. After a bridge is fitted it is crucial to maintain an excellent oral hygeine routine it is an acquired technique and takes a little bit of effort to get right at first and you will have to invest in the right tools such as a good toothbrush and inter dental brushes,  But get it right and a dental bridge will not only restore the look of your mouth, it will keep the health of your mouth up and running while it is in place!
