Men and women from Surrey, Wallington, Weybridge, and surrounding areas visit The Denture Clinic to learn about the options for tooth replacement. Very quickly after tooth loss or extraction, the functional and cosmetic consequences become obvious. Our team provides detailed information about how dentures work and also about why our 3D dentures stand out.
If you were to look at a 3D denture side by side with a conventional denture, you would not likely notice any significant difference. The difference is felt more than it is seen. Historically, dentures have been made using a standard impression and two-dimensional x-rays. In our office, we realize that the denture you get is one that you want to wear for many years. Comfort is important. Appearance is important. Functionality is important. To achieve these goals, we take painstaking measurements and multiple impressions.
The 3D denture procedure involves impressions taken of the arch or arches, just like conventional treatment. Additionally, we take impressions of the areas above and below the tongue and inside and outside of the arch where the gums lie. Our four-part impressions give us a full and accurate assessment of the entire mouth, leading to the best-fitting denture.
How we take impressions
Most people have had impressions at some point in their life. When we create 3D dentures, we place impression material into the mouth. We then have you move your mouth in specific ways. The movements that you make mould the pliable material to the form of your mouth based on your muscle tone and structural makeup. By taking these impressions, we are able to make a denture that fits well against the lips and cheeks, the tongue, and the arches.
Why patients choose 3D dentures
Patients who have worn conventional dentures seek the care of our team so that they can achieve greater comfort and functionality. Even if you have never worn a denture, chances are you have heard of their disadvantages. The team at The Denture Clinic can help you restore your chewing and speaking ability and also your confidence.
Denture treatment is not new, but our way of creating the best-fitting denture for you is revolutionizing our field. Learn more about your options for tooth replacement in your visit to The Denture Clinic.
