Have you ever avoided a special occasion or an opportunity because you worry about being embarrassed by your dentures? Do your dentures slip or move when you eat or speak?
Many people have a traditional view of dentures. They expect them to be ill-fitting, uncomfortable and unattractive. They think they will be unable to eat what they want and will be constantly worrying about their dentures slipping when they are in company.
For many years, this was the reality and, despite improving techniques, there are far too many people still putting up with poor dentures.
At St Raphael’s, we use the latest technology and approaches to offer our patients the best possible results. We ensure dentures fit well and are secure, so you can do everything you want without worrying.
When dentures are fitted properly, they sit snugly over your gums and feel comfortable. When they are used to replace teeth that have been recently removed, they may need adjusting over the following months as your jaw and gums slowly change shape.
Your dentist will be able to advise you on the right solution for you. Whether you need a full set of dentures to replace the top or bottom teeth, or you need partial dentures to replace just some of your teeth, your dentist will take measurements and moulds to create the perfect fit for you.
Our care doesn’t end with the fitting of your dentures. We offer you after-care advice to keep your dentures in good condition and maintain your general oral health. We also encourage you to have regular check-ups and to be open with us about how you’re finding your dentures, so we can make any adjustments as needed.
