10 things to know before you buy dentures

by | Feb 18, 2020 | Dentures Blog

There are a lot of denture myths that people still believe to be true. If you’re thinking about getting false teeth, here are 10 things to know before you buy dentures.

1. Natural looking

‘False teeth’ don’t have to look fake. Modern dentures include individually sculpted teeth with a realistic shape and colour – not completely uniform dazzling white teeth!

2. Soft comfort lining

These make denture wearing more comfortable when traditional hard acrylic dentures cause discomfort in bony or more sensitive areas.

3. Implant retained

You don’t have to rely on adhesives to keep your dentures in place. Implant retained dentures attach directly to your jaw bone via titanium studs, ideal for maximum confidence when eating, smiling and talking.

4. Same Day Smiles

If you have a major life event coming up or you just want to restore your smile without delay, Same Day Smiles gives you 4-6 tooth implants in your upper arch and/or 4 in your lower arch in a single visit, with no temporary dentures required.

5. Partial or complete?

There’s a range of options to fill a gap between your teeth or replace an entire arch. Partial dentures can also help support your remaining teeth, so you don’t lose them as fast.

6. Emergency repairs

Customers of our Warrington denture clinic benefit from out of hours repairs anytime between 6am and 10pm – even at weekends. Don’t be left without a smile if you suffer unexpected damaged dentures.

7. Price range

Partial and complete dentures are available at a range of price points, with 0% finance plans to help you spread the cost of getting the dentures you want. Contact us for more details.

8. Cleaning routine

You can ask at the denture clinic about the best cleaning routine for your full or partial dentures, but generally a gentle brush with a special denture paste (not ordinary toothpaste) is enough to keep them looking at their best.

9. Deep clean

A professional denture deep clean takes as little as 20-30 minutes and costs just £20 but makes sure your dentures look great and stay hygienic. Make it a quarterly treat for your artificial smile.

10. Overnight care

Most modern dentures don’t need to sit in a glass of water overnight. In fact, after cleaning you can usually pop them in a container with a lid and forget about them until morning.
