Dentures That Fit!
Everyone’s mouth is different and the type of denture you choose should best reflect your individual needs.
Creating Your Dentures
When you visit Brookswood Denture Clinic for your complimentary consultation you will be introduced to one of our highly trained Denturists. They will ask you questions to assess your current denture needs. You will have the opportunity to explain your current situation and the expectations you have for restoration. The Denturist will then explain what they can do for you in terms of fit, function and esthetics (the look of your denture).
What is the difference between a standard and precision dentures?
Denture materials can vary in quality and selection. Denture teeth come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, shades and degrees of hardness. A standard denture is a basic denture made using standard materials with limited basic tooth shapes and shades; Standard denture teeth tend to wear down at a faster rate and need to be replaced more frequently. Precision dentures are made using high quality materials and wear resistant teeth, in combination with additional impression and bite procedures that are not included with standard dentures.
Brookswood Denture Clinic precision crafted dentures use advanced procedures during fabrication. Precision dentures require specific instrumentation designed to focus on analyzing the bite registration and jaw relationship in order to maximize chewing functions and provide a more stabilized fit. We use high quality teeth that are available in female and male moulds to give you a look that is natural to you. Our dentures are finished using the Ivocap injection system and a premium biocompatible, fracture resistant denture acrylic.
** We believe in the material we use and offer a 5 year guarantee against material breakage for precision dentures.
There are many factors that are considered in order to make you a comfortable denture. These include:
- The condition of the tissues in the mouth
- The condition of the bone structure in the mouth
- The shape and size of the mouth
In constructing your new dentures we use only the finest materials and latest techniques. We take the time necessary to achieve the best possible results. It is common for most clients to visit the office between five and seven times. The procedures the Denturists use are critical in creating functional dentures. These procedures are never compromised.
Brookswood Denture Clinic uses the SR Ivocap Processing System to complete your dentures once you have accepted the wax try-in. While under constant pressure, the bases of your new dentures are injected with a high impact, biocompatible, fracture resistant denture resin. This process maintains the accuracy achieved by the Denturist assuring the greatest fit and function for your new dentures.
Those individuals who currently wear a full upper denture and are missing some lower natural teeth would have great success using a lower partial denture. Upper dentures that are not supported properly by lower teeth can cause a host of problems. For these individuals, this may result in a poor fitting upper denture causing an increase in bone loss, tissue growth and ‘sore spots.’ A correctly fitted denture results when the fitting surfaces work together in perfect balance. It’s vital to restore the mouth to its original state.
A removable partial denture is a dental appliance that replaces single or multiple missing natural teeth. It can be attached to teeth with clasps or it can be attached to teeth with crowns and precision attachments. Partial dentures can have a metal framework, resin base or they can be made with Valplast flexible resin.
A partial denture that fills in the space created by missing teeth is essential for many reasons. It can help you to chew food properly, improve speech, give you lip and cheek support, and prevent your remaining teeth from changing position by drifting into the surrounding spaces. Teeth that are out of alignment can damage the tissues in the mouth.
How long will it take to get used to wearing a partial denture?
For the first few weeks, your new partial denture may feel awkward or bulky. However, your mouth will eventually become accustomed to wearing it. Inserting and removing the denture will require some practice. Follow all instructions given by your denturist. Your denture should fit into place with relative ease. Never force the partial denture into position by biting down. This could bend or break the clasps. Over time, adjusting the partial denture may be necessary. As you age, your mouth naturally changes, which can affect the fit of the denture. Your ridges can recede or shrink, resulting in a loose-fitting denture. Partial Dentures that do not fit properly should be adjusted by your denturist. Loose partial dentures can cause various problems, including sores or damage of the remaining natural teeth. See your denturist promptly if your partial denture becomes loose.
