Missing teeth is a normal problem that many people have especially if they have had an issue with gum disease or even just experiencing the natural effects of time. Even if you already have dentures or think you have a difficult issue to tackle then your dentist might be able to help.
Many of us get our advice from the internet these days and it is a good starting point so that you can get the basics from articles just like this one. However, there is no substitute for a face to face chat with a dentist like Enhance Dental in Leeds. This is because there are so many factors at play some of which you might not even be aware of. And the same is true of solutions – there are so many now that lots of situations can be tackled through innovation and a determined dentist!
But What If I Already Have Dentures?
If you are already working with dentures and have been for some time then you may be getting used to them by now. However, it might also interest you to know that dental implants, as well as replacing teeth, can also offer denture stabilisation. This means that the implants are fitted so that your dentures click onto them in order to keep them in place. For many people, this stops many of the common issues that they have with their artificial teeth. They no longer move around and they work more naturally in concert with your jaw bone so chewing is easier as well as smiling, talking and kissing and other fabulous activities. And because you can be confident that they will stay where they are, it no longer needs to be a constant concern for you which can further increase your self-confidence and your desire to put yourself out into the world. As an added bonus, you don’t even need to take them out at night so you can begin to feel like you have normal teeth again. All this while working with a dental solution you are already familiar with.
You will still need to care for and clean your dentures but this can all be incorporated into your normal dental routine.
