PROSTHETICS Dorking Faqs
Prosthetic dentistry is the replacement of missing teeth with either fixed or removable dentures.
The objective is to improve appearance, speech, comfort, chewing and biting, and the ability to laugh, kiss and even shout without the dentures becoming dislodged. For some people who are already edentulous (i.e. have no natural teeth), Prosthetic Dentistry may be the answer.
Natural teeth can get lost due to various reasons, such as periodontal (gum) disease, caries (dental decay) or trauma. We don’t want tooth loss to be an issue for you anymore. Over time Dentures have improved in comfort, and the latest state-of-the-art technologies mean that the stability and longevity of dentures have also improved.
Edentulous is when you don’t have natural teeth. In this instance, the use of prosthetic treatment can be extremely beneficial.
- Improve speech
- The ability to laugh, kiss, shout, etc.
Dentures can be classified as partial or full:
Partial dentures provide stability and support as they can be retained on adjacent natural teeth using the latest in dental technology. They are specifically made to replace a small proportion of lost teeth.
A complete denture replaces all the teeth in one dental arch.
Dentures will take time to get used to, and great prosthetic dentistry is a team effort involving patient, dental technician and dentist.
Our goal is to ensure your dentures are a perfect fit. With some practice and time, most patients find their speech to be at 100%. We realise you will be wearing your dentures for most of the day, and we want to make sure that they do not irritate your gums or cause problems eating.
We know that the importance of the comfort of dentures is vital. At Dorking Smiles, we take time to ensure your dentures feel as natural as possible and fit perfectly.
Because you will be wearing dentures for most of the day, it is imperative that dentures do not irritate your gums or cause problems eating.
The quality of good prosthetic dentistry is down to choosing the right dental technician and dentist for you. We will help you with each step of this process, and with some practice, most patients find their speech and confidence will improve.
