The dentures process

The first step on your dentures journey is finding out which dentures are going to suit you best this is where Steve excels and is all part of the consultation process. Steve, our clinical dental technician (CDT) has been creating custom-fit dentures for dental patients for over 20 years.

a member of the dental team at Dental.

He can provide both traditional, BPS removable, and implant-retained dentures. Once you’ve made a decision about your preferred dentures, he will create an impression of your mouth this can be done digitally via scanning or using the latest and accurate impression materials, which will then be the basis for creating your prostheses. The next procedure is to assess and register the jaw relationship and choose a shade of tooth for your new smile. You and Steve will work together to find the colour that is right for you. It is then time to have a trial insertion of the dentures in wax. This is to verify that you are happy with how the dentures look and feel. The W can then be processed and fitted at the final treatment appointment, giving you your function, support, confidence and smile back.

    Frequently asked questions about dentures and our CDT…

    We’ll answer all your denture questions when you come and visit us for your consultation, but in the meantime, here are the answers to the questions we get asked the most.

    1. What is a CDT?

      A CDT (Clinical Dental Technician) is a dental technician who is clinically qualified to treat patients and provide dentures. Steve qualified as a CDT from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh and as a technician with De Monfort University.

    2. How do dental implant retained dentures work?

      Dental implant retained dentures are secured to the jawbone using dental implants, which are titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The dentures are then attached to these implants, providing a secure and stable fit. The implants act as anchors, preventing the dentures from slipping, or moving, while eating or speaking. This allows for improved chewing efficiency and speech, as well as increased confidence and comfort. Dental implant retained dentures also help to preserve the jawbone by providing simulated tooth root stimulation. This prevents the bone loss that can occur with traditional dentures.

    3. What’s the dental implant treatment process?

      Your dental implants will be placed into your jawbone. This is done through a surgical procedure under local anesthetic. After the implant has been placed, a healing period of several months is required for osseointegration to occur. Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to it, which connects the implant to the dentures. Finally, custom-made dentures, are placed on to the abutments completing the dental implant treatment process to give you a set of very stable dentures, that look and feel like natural teeth.

    4. How do BPS removable dentures work?

      BPS (Biofunctional Prosthetic System) removable dentures are designed to provide patients with comfortable, natural-looking replacement teeth. These dentures are custom-made, and tailored to fit each individual’s mouth. Once the dentures have been created, they are securely attached to your mouth using a combination of suction and specialised adhesives. This ensures that the dentures stay in place during normal activities such as eating and speaking.

    5. Which dentures are the best option for me?

      Dental implant-retained dentures offer a more permanent and secure solution as they are anchored to dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Removable dentures are a more affordable and easily removable option. They can be taken out for cleaning and maintenance, which is convenient for some individuals. Come and talk to Steve, who’ll be able to assess your specific situation, and offer you options based on your oral health, budget, and personal preferences.

    6. Do you offer partial dentures?

      Yes we do. Partial dentures work by utilising oral anatomy and remaining natural teeth , providing stability and support. Or they might involve dental implants. They can improve your ability to chew and speak properly, as well as your oral function and overall quality of life. Additionally, partial dentures also help prevent your remaining natural teeth from shifting and becoming misaligned.

    7. Can you fix broken dentures?

      Yes. When you have your appointment, Steve will carefully examine your broken dentures to assess the extent of the damage, before advising you of the repair process, how long it will take, and whether you’ll need any temporary measures in the meantime.

    8. How many dental implants will I need for a full set of implant-retained dentures?

      A minimum of 2 implants is recommended to support a full set of dentures. These implants are strategically placed in the jawbone to provide stability and support for the dentures. However, in some cases, more implants may be needed to ensure optimal function and aesthetics. Factors such as bone density, oral health, and the type of denture being used, can influence the number of implants needed. When you have your consultation with Steve, he’ll be able to advise you on the best treatment plan for you.

    9. Will my new set of dentures look natural?

      Steve will work closely with you to ensure your new set of dentures matches your individual facial features and smile. He’ll take into consideration factors such as tooth shape, size, colour, and alignment to create a set of dentures that is as close to natural as possible.
