Dentures in Ireland: For most people, missing an odd tooth is not such a problem, especially if they aren’t visible when they smile or when chewing. However, for patients who have multiple missing teeth or those with entire rows of missing teeth, it can become difficult to carry out normal tasks like speaking, eating, and chewing food.
If this strikes a chord with you then having dentures iѕ a flexible, low-cost solution to restoring full facial aesthetics and bite functionality. This is something that we can help you with.
MODERN DAY DENTURES, WHAT ARE THEY LIKE?
When first considering dentures, patients might immediately relate to those clunky, unreliable sets that grandparents used to wear back in the day. Thankfully, modern-day dentures are far removed from this.
Nowadays dentures are lighter, more comfortable, and way more lifelike that their predecessors. Here at Reva Dental, we offer a range of denture options for each unique patient. We’re able to provide cost0-effective partial sets and over-dentures, making it one of the most affordable ways to restore your smile.
BENEFITS OF DENTURES – RESTORING APPEARANCE AND BOOSTING CONFIDENCE
Having multiple teeth missing can drastically affect confidence, self esteem and can cause untold frustration. You can no longer enjoy the foods you love and your once beaming smile is no longer present with you appearing older than your years. Thankfully our acrylic, soft acrylic and cobalt chromium dentures allow you to restore both form and function, significantly improving your quality of life.
SO HOW DO DENTURES WORK? THE TOOTH, THE WHOLE TOOTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TOOTH!
Yоu could say that our quality dentures are a blend of science and art. They need to be accurate enough so that they fit snugly over the alveolar bone (the bone that once supported the teeth) and lifelike enough so that they create a natural looking smile. After several weeks of impressions and fittings, your dentures are made to fit you. They are held in position primarily by the effect of suction and their precision fit. If it’s an upper denture, extra support is derived from the palate which makes the fixture extremely stable.
At first, your dentures may take some getting used to as they bed in. Over time, the ligaments, tongue and muscles of the mouth learn to work in new ways with the dentures and in no time at all, they will feel part of you. What’s more, dentures help give support back to the soft tissues of the face, lips and cheek, giving you a more youthful appearance.
GET TOTAL PEACE OF MIND WITH AN OVER-DENTURE
To ensure complete peace of mind you might want to consider an over-denture. Designed to clip on to your existing teeth or strategically placed dental implants it won’t shift in the mouth, unlike conventional dentures. As the jaw bone naturally shrinks, conventional dentures can become loose over time and will need replacing for a better fit. So to avoid any possible embarrassing slippage, over-dentures might be the way forward.
Remember, you shouldn’t have to put up with missing teeth, and as such it’s good to now that here at Reva Dental, we can help you restore your great looking smile once and for all.
