If you are missing teeth due to tooth decay and gum disease, or require an extraction for heavily damaged teeth that will not hold fillings, then dentures may provide an economical solution. This removable option has come a long way since the false teeth of old, so you can be sure of an outcome that viably restores both the appearance of your smile and a level of functionality.
With convenient locations such as Chatswood, in Sydney’s North Shore, About Smiles offers durable dentures that are designed with a comfortable fit, proper facial support and genuine functionality in mind. We are committed to options that can lessen the chances of problems caused by missing teeth and gaps, while also restoring your smile and filling out your lips, cheeks and jaw. This commitment is incredibly important to us because untreated gaps in your teeth can cause significant issues, including:
It is very important that your dentures are created diligently and accurately to your face and gums. By correctly creating them you will get a more comfortable fit that evenly distributes bite forces in your mouth. Our procedure for providing a high quality, natural look with dentures is relatively straightforward:
Proper maintenance is vitally important to keep your dentures in optimal condition, and ensure they last the full duration of their expected effective life. It is advisable to clean and brush them with a denture cleaning solution after meals to remove debris, especially in the areas around clasps. This should be performed alongside your regular oral hygiene practices.
After several years using dentures (potentially every two, depending on your specific circumstances) they may require relining as resorption of the underlying jawbone continually occurs. At About Smiles we have an in-house laboratory that enables us to offer a same day service to help you reline, fix broken clasps and/or add teeth to your dentures. This means at your regular check-ups we can help you maintain your dentures and bite profile.
