Chris's Denture Placement

Chris came to us because he was unhappy with his current dentures in terms of look, comfort and function. He couldn’t eat properly and sometimes felt his dentures were loose fitting and uncomfortable. After assessment, we were able to recommend a denture solution that worked for Chris. 

What we did 

We discussed all the options available from implant retained dentures, bridges, partial dentures and permanent implants. Once Chris was happy with an option that suited his needs we booked him in for a set of impressions of his teeth. We then worked with our lab to create the denture using the finest materials. Chris was invited back for try-ins and fits until the result felt perfect. 

Outcome 

Over the course of 2 weeks Chris underwent a full denture plan to replace his current dentures which were proving uncomfortable. After the treatment was completed Chris had the result he’d dreamed of – “a new absolutely perfect denture”. 

What did Chris say

“ I needed a new denture as the others were getting very uncomfortable. I had a full assessment with my dentist and chose the option most suitable for me. My dentist was great and spent lots of time with me until we got a perfect fit. My dentist was absolutely brilliant and in the end I had a new absolutely perfect denture!”

Dentures

A removable denture replaces missing teeth. 'Partial' dentures replace a few missing teeth and 'full' dentures are required if all the natural teeth are missing. Dentures are made of plastic and sometimes metal as well to make them strong and less bulky.

Denture Repair

Are your dentures broken or cracked, missing a tooth or simply in need of a thorough clean? Dentures suffer from a lot of day-to-day wear and tear and can often break or become damaged when dropped. They can also be weakened as a result of tooth grinding or if they no longer fit your mouth properly.

If you are experiencing any of the above problems, our dentists can repair your dentures or give them a thorough clean or send them off for full repair with one of our technicians. Our dental team will of course be able to advise you if you have a more complex problem that may require the attention of a dentist.

Any damage to dentures identified during routine appointments at envisage dental will still be rectified as usual, wherever possible during the same appointment.

Double Arch Dental Implants

If you have lost all your teeth, your dental surgeon can offer several options. The most common and affordable option is to have removable dentures. However, over time, as the gums change, the dentures don’t fit as well and gives frustration to patients who can’t chew and function as they normally do. As the bone is lost over time (as the bone needs teeth to serve to not recess), eventually drastic measures may have to be taken to offer function.

Over time, dentists have researched and successfully created implant systems to help full tooth loose. The most common is to have implant retained dentures where approximately 4-6 implants are placed in each jaw and then a customized denture is clipped onto the implants. This ensure the bones doesn’t loose over time and the dentures remain semi-permanent in a fixed position helping chewing and function as well as giving back taste.

Implant Retained Dentures

An implant-retained denture is a type of over- denture that is supported by and attached to implants in the jaw. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants. The denture clips on to the implant to keep it in place. An implant-retained denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. It is usual that at least 2 implants are needed to support the denture, but that will be decided depending on your particular needs.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are often considered by patients that are not missing an entire arch of teeth, but rather a tooth or several teeth within an arch. Traditional partial dentures are sometimes not as aesthetically pleasing due to clips and metal pieces that may show when you talk, smile, or eat. While many individuals would fare best with a bridge or dental implant when replacing a missing tooth, it is not always a viable option for every patient. This is why partial dentures are often considered for patients that are not candidates for alternative treatments.

Plastic Dentures

Traditional or conventional partial dentures can sometimes be bulky and uncomfortable to wear, but plastic dentures are made and designed to be thinner and look plus function like natural teeth. Each partial denture is custom-designed for the patient and we ensure your denture teeth look as natural as possible, through positioning them to match the shape, size and form of your missing teeth.
