why are Apollonia’s dentures so special?
Dentures are bespoke-made and will be fabricated by hand according to teeth impressions that are used by our highly experienced dental technicians. The mould is used as a template for the dentures to ensure that they fit the shape of your mouth. When the dentures return to us, we will assess the fit and make sure that you are pleased with your new teeth.
How long do dentures last?
Your mouth is constantly changing shape and so the denture will eventually start to come loose over at the passing of the years. We advise patients to attend regular checks for us to make sure that the denture still fits well. Once the denture starts to come loose it can cause irritation of the gums and affect functionality, in which case we recommend adjustment or complete replacement of the denture.
What are the advantages of dentures?
The major benefit of dentures is that they restore mouth functionality, which allows for proper eating and speaking and a natural, healthy smile. A large majority of people still think of unsightly sets of false teeth when they hear the word denture, but modern dentures are light and lifelike and create natural looking smiles. Dentures are also a cheaper option than dental implants.
Are there any alternatives?
The alternative to dentures are dental bridges, dental implants or precision attachments. A dental bridge is generally used to replace replace single or a few missing teeth, while dental implants can support a single crown, a full dental bridge or a complete full denture. Dental implants are widely regarded as the best solution for missing teeth, but they are much more expensive than dentures and dental bridges. A precision attachment uses magnets, stood and hidden clasps.
