Up-to-date Dentures

dentures in different color shadesLosing one’s teeth can happen in an accident at a young age, but it is far more likely that life will sneak up and remove them one by one after years of grinding, decay, infection, smoking, diabetes, and other lifestyle-related causes. Fortunately, as the 21st century marches on, advances in dental techniques and materials are providing ways to replace missing teeth with ones that are more closely resemble natural teeth, making them easier to live with.

Dentists throughout the country offer dentures, in Farnham, they are available from dentists such as Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic.

Not exactly sure what dentures are?

Dentures are removable false teeth used to replace missing teeth and gums. Complete, or full, dentures replace all the teeth, while partial dentures replace just a few teeth.

How they’ve improved

Not so long ago in Farnham, dentures were better known for their comedy value than for their convenience. They didn’t look enough like real teeth. The gum sections were too pink, the teeth too white or often bore no resemblance to the wearer’s original teeth. Then there was the embarrassment that dentures could cause by taking on a life of their own in a person’s mouth after they had been living there a while. Not to mention the whistling and speech problems.

Thankfully, the dentures of today need no longer be seen as a problem that people just have to grin and bear in old age, but as the solution that brings a healthy, problem-free mouth.

Why are dentures in Farnham so much better these days?

It’s all down to the new improved resins, stains and custom-made artificial teeth, which when crafted together by a skilled dental technician combine to make a beautiful, natural smile.

But new materials are only part of the improvement story. Over the decades, dental researchers have vastly improved their understanding of the science involved in managing different mouth and jaw shapes, as well as the muscle skills of the patients receiving the dentures.

Also, dentures can now be made with injection moulding techniques that improve accuracy of fit. Also, denture makers are far more skilled in creating dentures that look natural. It is an art in itself.
