Older people tend to lose teeth due to the natural process of ageing. Tooth enamel generally wears away with ageing, making teeth vulnerable to decay and damage. Tooth loss makes it difficult for older people to chew properly, and this leads to them not consuming enough nutrients.
Dentures are an excellent way to restore health, functionality and aesthetics to your smile. A well-made denture can help you speak and eat more comfortably. Replacing missing teeth with dentures will also enhance your overall appearance and help you smile with confidence.
The Gentle Dentist creates custom-made dentures which are comfortable and have a natural-looking appearance.
We offer the following types of dentures:
Full dentures are made from a plastic base which is coloured to look like gum tissue. It includes a full set of acrylic porcelain teeth. Denture adhesive is used to keep the denture in place.
Unlike full dentures, flexi dentures aren't so brittle, so they are less likely to shatter if dropped. They hold on to the gums and don't require metal clasps or denture adhesive to keep them in place. The material is transparent, allowing the natural gum colour to show through.
Chrome Cobalt Dentures
A chrome cobalt metal denture is made from a combination of cobalt and chrome. The combination of these materials helps prevent corrosion. The metal is light and strong , making the denture thinner and far more comfortable to wear. This type of denture is great for patients who often damage their conventional dentures.
If you are interested in receiving a custom-made denture to suit your oral needs, contact The Gentle Dentist. She will make a thorough assessment before providing the treatment most suitable for your case.
