More Comfortable & Realistic Dentures

Losing your teeth at any age in life can be very unpleasant and can cause a great deal of anxiety and pain. However, there are many options still available and thanks to modern technology and improved dentistry, the option of wearing dentures no longer carries the stigma it once did.

Modern dentures are more comfortable, more realistic and stronger than the dentures of the past and are designed to fit the mouth better to prevent the anxiety caused by loose dentures. In the past, many denture wearers had to resort to using sticky and messy dental adhesive gels or strips. These prevented many people form eating and drinking what they wanted. A good pair of dentures should stay firmly in place by suction alone, allowing the wearer to live a normal life.

For those patients who still require the extra security there is now the possibility of mini-implants to act as a secure base for the dentures. A series of small titanium screws are anchored directly into the jawbone to act as a solid base for a set of dentures, which can be fitted with snap on/snap off clips so that your dentures will never come out unless you want them to.

Patients with several missing teeth can also benefit form a partial denture, which can be worn to restore the cosmetic appearance of the teeth and regain some of their functionality. Partial dentures and full dentures also act as support for facial muscles, preventing sagging of the facial tissue common in patients with few or no teeth. Shimla dentists are able to offer advice and treatment to patients considering dentures or partial dentures to help them regain their confidence and the full use of their teeth.
