Your dentist will assess the situation to see if you are suitable for dentures and how to approach it. Upon the initial examination, the dentist may decide that it is necessary to remove other teeth to allow the dentures to fit and work correctly. It is also possible that the dentist may advise you on some hygiene treatment on the gums to make sure they are up to a good standard for the procedure to work well. A mould will be taken of your mouth that will then go to a dental technician. The dentures will be made to the requirements of the individual. The teeth and gum colour will match those of the patient and the contours of the denture will fit inside the mouth perfectly.
The natural suction force within the mouth should keep the dentures in place. However, sometimes they may come loose while eating; for this, there are a number of fixing gels and creams that are available. Also, if this is the case, there is the option of using implants to stabilise your dentures.
I love my dentist now!
I am a very nervous patient and I haven’t had much luck with dentists in the past. so I was apprehensive joining this new surgery. However from my first conversations with the lovely receptionists to my most recent treatment, I have had great service. Every time I leave with a smile, I can honestly say that I am no longer scared of visiting the dentist.
I saw Dr Rob Hanna for my checkup this afternoon and was very impressed from the moment I arrived.
Very professional and thorough throughout my appointment. Everything was explained and I was made to feel at ease from start to finish.
As soon as I finished my dental checkup I was seen by Charlotte my hygienist. Once again my appointment was professional and thorough and I came away very impressed with my treatment and the way I was looked after.
Would recommend Hampshire Dentists to anybody that was looking for a dentist.
This dentist is wonderful. Everyone is so happy and helpful, they have really helped me over the years. Special shout out to Cadge who is so lovely and caring, always asking if I’m okay and checking in throughout the appointment. Thank you all! 😊
