at Causeway Dental
We understand that wearing dentures can be difficult. At Causeway dental we can make the best denture for you. We will look at you individual needs and help you decide which type of denture is right for you.
Whether it is an all acrylic type, a flexible one or a metal framed denture we can make it fit perfectly. With custom fitting and careful analysis of the trial stage we make sure the denture is just right before we finish the work.
We can even copy your old dentures if it is appropriate so that you have a denture shape you are accustomed to but with a new perfect fit.
Traditional impressions can sometimes avoided if they are putting you off having new dentures made.
Dental implants have revolutionised dentures with the ability to fix them very firmly in place. See our implant section or ask us how dental implants can transform your denture.
Avoid any excessive pressure onto the cosmetic dentures. This is very important. You should eat soft nutritious food for the first 2 weeks. Avoid hard sticky foods.
As you get used to wearing your cosmetic dentures slowly increase the time you wear them. If your mouth gets sore take them out and let your mouth relax. Using a warm salty water mouth rinse should help relieve any soreness.
Continue to increase the time you wear them, this way your mouth will get used to them. As you feel more comfortable, you can vary your diet more. This way eating will be more enjoyable.
Clean the cosmetic dentures with a toothbrush, ordinary soap and water. Any red or inflamed areas in your mouth can be brushed with Corsodyl Gel™. Only use a Steradent™ tablet occasionally to clean your denture.
If the cosmetic denture continues to be sore anywhere, return to your dentist to have them adjusted accordingly.
Regular check-up appointments are still important to ensure the health of your gums.
