Don't Discount Dentures - The Dental Implant Alternative

Don’t discount dentures…


Dentist olding Dentures

If you have a missing tooth or teeth, or you have been told a tooth is unrestorable, then you may feel unsure about what to do next.


Dental implants often seem like they are the best, most modern solution. But they are not the only option, because removable dentures have not gone away. Many exceptional dentists are continuing to deliver dentures.


Some people might not be suitable for a dental implant, or want one. Dentures cost less than implants, but this does not compromise the quality of the product. The aesthetic outcome and long-term result can also be excellent.


If you are susceptible to gum disease or bone loss around the teeth, then a denture may be recommended to you. I will make a thorough assessment, so your treatment is ethical. You will be given all the information you need to make your decision. A dental implant does not always last forever, and it isn’t a case of 'fit-and-forget.' You may not feel able to commit to the ongoing job of aftercare needed to keep it stable. Healing is usually required before the final restoration is fitted and you may not want to wait.

The "new" dentures


Materials and technologies have evolved and "new" dentures look great. They can also feel and function very naturally. They are a world away from anything you might associate with your grandparents.
