Dentures

Replacing dentures with Implants is an important part of our work. We recommend implants rather than bridges. A bridge is not the first recommended option any more as implants are so successful, reliable and affordable. An implant looks more attractive than a bridge and damages the healthy adjacent teeth unnecessarily. Currently the cost of an implant may be very similar to a bridge. Together we can help you plan financially how to achieve the optimum treatment without compromise in aesthetics or health of your teeth.

Replacing a full denture with implants – often you can add implants under your denture to gain extra stability and retention at affordable prices.

We have a great deal of experience with making dentures. A correctly made denture can give you unexpected aesthetics and function previously not realised.

We believe that dentures have a very important role to play within our range of treatment options. A stable cobalt chrome partial denture/s or full denture/s are used either as a long term temporary or permanent treatment for lost teeth.

Preventing problems by wearing a partial denture – At times we use partial cobalt chrome dentures to prevent problems or as a long term temporary or long term optimum solution. Come and talk to us, we will be happy to discuss your individual wishes and goals. We believe that dentures have a very important role to play within our range of treatment options. A stable cobalt chrome partial denture/s are used either as a long term temporary or permanent treatment for lost teeth.

At Prevent Dental we understand the advantages and versatility of cobalt chrome partial dentures. A cobalt chrome partial (not complete) denture is one with a metal base frame and acrylic teeth. Use of a cobalt chrome partial denture is better than not wearing anything at all because:

  1. To support the two arches of the mouth. They create stability, allows better chewing and eating, better aesthetics, prevents deterioration of the dentition (whole set of teeth in the mouth), improves speech, and is a financially better option than implants.
  2. Instead of an acrylic partial denture which is difficult to use andill fitting. It is extremely rare use an acrylic partial denture instead of a cobalt chrome partial denture.
  3. When a Cobalt Chrome Partial Denture is made, it may be used as a final treatment, or in time an Implant may replace it.

At Prevent Dental we believe in wearing a partial denture for the long term health of the dentition. Without a full row of teeth, the whole mouth will not stay healthy. The teeth will drift apart and over-erupt (grow longer). This will make the arch irregular, not straight as in youth. This treatment assists in prevents gum disease that is more likely to occur with missing teeth and untreated spaces.
