Dentures are one of the most common and convenient solutions for missing teeth. Dentures are a removable prosthetic appliance that can be fabricated from acrylic or cobalt chrome. Dentures are designed to look and function just like your teeth.
Tooth loss can affect your eating habits, confidence and dental health. As your remaining teeth shift, some of the teeth can suffer excessive wear or become misaligned.
At A Supa Smile, we help you avoid these myriad negative effects of missing teeth by recommending restorative options such as dentures. If you would like to restore the health and appearance of your teeth, your dental team in Croydon can help.
The Procedure for Obtaining Dentures
The initial consultation with your Croydon dentist includes assessing your needs and thoroughly examining your mouth to determine if you are suitable for dentures. Your dentist will:
- Check the adjacent teeth. Some of these teeth may need to be extracted before the treatment.
- Look at existing tooth restorations such as dental fillings or crowns.
- Evaluate the health of your gums to make sure that there’s no infection present.
- Check your bite.
- Assess the gums and the underlying bone if you have no remaining teeth.
- Get accurate impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to the dental lab.
- Have the laboratory make a custom tray to set a more precise mould of your teeth in wax, which will be used to fabricate the final dentures.
- Assess the comfort and fit of dentures during fitting.
- Provide care tips to help maintain your new dentures.
