Find the Daredevil in Yourself by Replacing Your Missing Teeth Painlessly

Posted on: February 28th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Even heroes amongst us can be afraid of the dentist, either as a result of a traumatic experience as a child or simply by using your imagination.  Nevertheless, the horror of visiting the dentist has stayed with you. Same Day Teeth Suite can banish your demons once and for all and replace your missing teeth painlessly.

You may be missing one, or more teeth and be missing out on so much in life. If you are missing a tooth, you can lose your confidence, even amongst family members, and decline to participate in so many activities, hiding away.  You want your teeth replaced, but you don’t think you are brave enough.  If you are missing teeth, you may be feeling totally depressed. Eating may be awkward, with food getting lodged between your remaining teeth as they shift position, increasing the risk of decay and gum disease.  And to cap it all, you think you need a facelift, as your muscles slacken around your mouth, making you feel old before your time.  Not only are you afraid of the dentist, but you are also afraid you may end up with dentures like your grandmother’s; the butt of so many old jokes.

Fear not, everything changes and help is at hand.  Modern advancements in dentistry and sedation make a visit to the dentist to replace missing teeth a painless experience.  Something to be welcomed, not avoided. Dental surgeries are no longer clinical and hostile but exude the peaceful atmosphere more akin to a spa than somewhere medical. And, once you have taken the first brave step through the door, advanced sedation techniques allow you to relax totally in safe hands and remain totally in control. And, just as dentistry sedation has improved beyond recognition, so have the options for replacing missing teeth.  

Depending on how many teeth you are missing, the condition and health of your mouth and remaining teeth, you may choose between dentures, bridges or dental implants.  Modern false teeth, or crowns, are all individually crafted to look as natural as possible, simulating real teeth and restoring your smile.

If you are considering replacing missing teeth, your treatment options include:

  • Dentures (also called false teeth) – A frame of metal or plastic individually fitted to your mouth with simulated teeth attached.
  • Bridges – Simulated teeth that are fixed to the adjacent remaining natural teeth.
  • Dental implants – Titanium poles that are surgically fitted in the jaw to simulate the root of the tooth to which dentures, crowns or bridges are securely attached.

Every patient is different and has a different set of needs. Why not book a consultation at Same Day Teeth to see which option is most suitable for you. We offer a FREE consultation where you can discuss your fears and options at length with one of our experienced dentists.

The Benefits of Wearing Dentures in Loughborough

Posted on: October 7th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

There are a number of reasons why an individual might consider having dentures fitted, either to replace a few missing teeth, as in a partial fitting, or to replace a whole upper or lower set of teeth. At the SameDay Teeth Suite in Loughborough we’ve seen the powerful impact that new dentures can have on someone’s self-esteem and confidence. It’s not just about having a better smile though, there are also health benefits to having dentures fitted rather than letting tooth loss go unchecked.

Can you tell the difference?

At the SameDay Teeth Suite we are used to patients telling us that they can’t see the difference between dentures and normal teeth. That’s because, whether it’s a partial fitting or a whole denture, we take time and use the best expertise to produce teeth that fit perfectly and look great. When our patients look in the mirror and smile, their confidence is immediately boosted. They also don’t have to worry that they’ve been given ill-fitting dentures that will cause sore spots or problems with eating.

“We are not happy until the dentures look or set naturally” says Dr Kalpesh Bohara, clinical director at the SameDay Teeth Suite. “We want to achieve a three-dimensional look, not a two-dimensional look. It is important to take the time to ‘blend’ in the dentures with the teeth. They’re not straight, they’re not just flat, they all are individual teeth.”

Loose Dentures

Many people suffer from loose dentures without realising that there is something they can do about it. Even if you have been seen by another dentist and have been silently suffering with ill-fitting dentures for a number of years, we can help. If your bone structure is still intact then we can suggest implants to give make your dentures fit more securely. Even if that’s not the case we can fit Swiss Dentures, which are designed to stabilise the lower teeth.

Dentures Can Be Comfortable

You don’t have to suffer from badly made and poorly fitted dentures. As Dr Bohara says:

“At the practice, we use several procedures to enable the denture to fit , but also be comfortable at the same time. If you’ve got a very accurately fitting denture, it is going to be comfortable. The way we make them, the teeth that we use, they’re made to look like natural teeth. People will not be able to tell the difference between somebody who’s got their own teeth and somebody who’s got a denture. They do look that natural.”

The days of having to suffer from poor fitting dentures, not to mention the damage they inflict on your mouth over time, have all but gone. A simple visit to a clinic such as the SameDay Teeth Suite in Loughborough can ensure that your new dentures are a much better, more natural fit, giving you comfort when you eat and confidence when you smile.
