Cheam dentist explains the facts about false teeth

 

When you think of dentures you conjures up the vision of teeth in a glass beside your bed. But as your Cheam dentist advocates, dentures are a vital aid in oral hygiene and for both cosmetic and clinical reasons. False teeth come in many forms, the obvious being crowns and veneers, though these rely on the tooth still being present. When a tooth or a couple of teeth have been lost, there are a couple of ways to fill the gap. An implant relies on a screw being implanted into the bone and then the tooth being attached to the screw. The second option is a bridge whereby the false tooth is attached to one or two adjacent teeth. These options stop the original teeth moving out of place and support the occlusion. They also aid phonetics (speech), aesthetics (looks) and help mastication. But not everyone has these options. In some cases, a patient will lose all of their teeth through periodontal disease, tooth decay, trauma or medication. In this case, once the teeth have been removed, it can take several months for the gums to heal before dentures can be fitted. A tempory denture can be made to wear whilst the gums and bone are healing as shrinkage may occur.  In time, and with a quality set of false teeth, the tempory denture can be replaced. As with all false teeth, the mouth needs time to adjust and dentures can cause irritation for a few days. Speech and eating can be a constant problem at first, but once this new experience settles down, things will return, pretty much, to normal and the recipient can once again smile with confidence.
