It is important to replace missing teeth, even if just one is missing. If left untreated, your chewing and speaking will be affected, as additional strain is put on teeth either side of the gap, and your bite can become misaligned. The missing teeth and bone can also cause your face to sag and look older, and you could end up losing further teeth.
Dentures must be looked after as if they were your natural teeth. Plaque can develop on dentures in much the same way as it can on natural teeth, which can put you at risk of gum disease.
With removable dentures, we recommend you take them out and clean them thoroughly with a soft brush. They should then be rinsed and soaked overnight in a denture cleaner.
Remember to keep your mouth clean too, by gently brushing your gums and tongue with a soft brush and rising with a mouthwash.
There are a number of benefits to choosing dentures to replace your missing teeth.
"At Moor Dental I have found everyone to be very professional, friendly and welcoming. My daughter & I have always been very nervous of Dentist, my daughter has a needle phobia. Moor Dental have given us confidence and always come away with a happy experience. Very highly recommend. You won't be disappointed with Moor Dental in any way."
"As somebody with some phobias of dentistry and most medical practices, I was extremely hesitant to visit the dentist. While my nerves were making it hard for me to relax, the staff did not. They were friendly, polite, caring, and professional. I had two appointments after the initial assessment, for cleaning and a couple of fillings. As you can imagine, I was terrified. But by the second day, with how at ease I felt due to their attitude and competence, I let them get on with the treatment and didn't feel half as bad. They also offer sedation, for those overly anxious with regards to treatment. Which is something I thought I would need, but gladly didn't. I would recommend Moor Dental Care to anybody."
"They are brilliant the receptionist are so welcoming makes you feel at ease I went as was in a lot of pain and my usual dentist didn't have a dentist for months. But Moor Dental Care did my treatment and we now travel there from Tavistock. Wonderful dentist."
