So… you have a missing tooth and you’ve decided you’re ready to do something about it! A dental bridge is certainly one option to consider, but there are other alternatives as well.
A visit to our practice, Wattle Grove Dental Centre will help you to evaluate the solution that works best for your situation… and your budget! Give us a call and we’ll arrange a consultation to discuss solutions to your “open space” problem!
Although they’ve been around for ages, today’s dentures are more comfortable and natural looking. Today’s dentures are definitely not your grandmother’s dentures!
There are basically two types of dentures.
Both types may require that some teeth be pulled or that some surgery be performed on the bony ridges beneath the gums to better accommodate your new dentures so they have a perfect feel and “fit.”
We begin by taking an impression of your teeth which is used to custom make your dentures. If your dentures are full, and any extractions are necessary, a temporary denture is placed to assist with the healing and to provide “teeth” while your gums heal. A final denture is prepared after all healing has taken place, usually within six – twelve months.
Partial dentures replace missing teeth and are attached to existing teeth with anchors made of plastic or metal.
Both full and partial dentures are removed at night when you go to sleep, so that saliva can “wash” over your gums to maintain a healthy mouth.
Feel free to ask your enquiries for directions to the conference.
