Is tooth loss getting you down? Here at Surbiton Smiles, We offer the solutions you need. Prosthetic dentistry is an excellent method of restoring lost teeth. Unfortunately, tooth loss is something that affects millions of people every year. We enhance the appearance of your smile using Prosthodontics, which will fill in the gaps left by lost teeth and have you feeling more confident than ever. Moreover, prosthetics can be highly effective in restoring functionality, which is often something people lose when missing teeth.

HOW DOES PROSTHETIC DENTISTRY WORK?

Prosthetic dentistry involves replacing missing teeth with either fixed or removable dentures. The purpose is to improve appearance, speech, comfort and the ability to laugh, eat, and even kiss, all whilst feeling as natural as regular teeth. Prosthetic dentistry may be the answer for some people who are already edentulous (i.e. have no natural teeth remaining).

HOW CAN YOU LOSE TEETH?

Natural teeth can get lost for various reasons, such as periodontal (gum) disease, caries (dental decay) or trauma. They may also get lost due to injury, illness, genetics or general dental neglect. Over time, dentures have greatly improved in comfort, and with the latest state-of-the-art technologies, their stability and longevity have also progressed.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PARTIAL AND FULL DENTURES?

Dentures can be classified as partial or full. Partial dentures are suitable in cases where the patient has only one or two missing teeth. With this option, a plate holding the replacement teeth is attached to your remaining natural teeth using metal clasps. They can be removed whenever necessary. Complete dentures replace all the teeth in one dental arch.
Dentures will take time to get used to. Surbiton Smiles has an excellent prosthetic dentistry team, and our goal is to ensure your dentures are a perfect fit. After some practice and time, most patients find their speech to be back at 100%. We realise you will be wearing your dentures for most of the day, meaning we will always make sure they don’t irritate your gums or cause problems eating.
