Patients looking for a comfortable alternative to traditional dentures could be interested in Flexible Dentures, available from Falkirk Dental Care.
Using advanced technology to fit around the shape of teeth and gums upon insertion, the flexible denture can be used when there is not enough bone for fitting dental implants to replace missing teeth.
The flexible denture works by flexing into position, not needing the use of metal clasping mechanisms to hold the dentures in place. Individuals with irregularities in the shape of their mouth could benefit greatly from the treatment and experience a growth to their self-confidence as a result.
What are Flexible Dentures?
Flexible dentures could be the perfect solution for an individual who has lost one or more of their natural teeth as a result of gum disease, dental infection or a sporting injury. Using this method your Dental Specialist at Falkirk Dental Care can utilise a partial denture to replace missing teeth and get the smile back to its natural best.
The replacement of missing teeth can have a profound effect on the appearance and overall wellbeing of an individual. Without facial support from a fixed or flexible denture following the removal of teeth, the face can often sag, which could make individuals appear older than they actually are. Also, the fixture of dentures can ensure oral health is maintained, as those with multiple missing teeth can often experience fracture or wear of the remaining teeth.
In addition, dentures can make it much easier for members of the public to carry out a number of tasks people usually take for granted, such as eating and speaking without difficulty.
What are the advantages of Flexible Dentures?
Patients who wear flexible dentures are extremely unlikely to experience any pain or discomfort from the fixture, due to the lack of metal clasps or adhesive. Using this form of treatment, individuals are able to enjoy increased retention as a result of the custom-fitted design.
In addition, flexible dentures provide a more cosmetic solution for people by being more aesthetically pleasing than their traditional counterparts. The material used to create the fixture is transparent and blends in with the natural gum colour in the mouth. The metal clasps found in traditional dentures are replaced with tooth coloured clasps in flexible dentures.
The simple nature of flexible dentures means it can be quickly manufactured, which is an ideal solution for dental patients. The fact that there are a reduced number of components used means that there will be a significantly shorter waiting time.
