We Believe every interaction with our patients is an opportunity
Restore your smile and your confidence with dentures in Mill Hill. Chase Lodge Dental offers dentures to patients wishing to replace missing or loose teeth. Dentures can be permanently fixed in place with dental implants in both the upper and lower jaw.
Dentures are comprised of porcelain or acrylic teeth attached to an acrylic base, which mimics the natural gum. Our dental practice in Mill Hill offers two different types of dentures:
Two to five implants are placed in the jawbone. A curved thin metal bar is attached to the implants. Small clips are attached to the bar, which in turn hold the denture in place.
Ball-shaped metal pieces are attached to implants in the jawbone, and fit into corresponding attachments on the denture.
If you’re missing all or most of your teeth, dentures may be the perfect treatment for you. You must have enough jawbone to support the implants, however. Otherwise, a bone graft may be necessary to strengthen the bone beforehand. One of our skilled and experienced dentists in Mill Hill can determine the best treatment for you at your initial consultation.
Your private dentist in Mill Hill will carry out the procedure under a local anaesthetic to numb the area. You may also be given a sedative to help you relax. Firstly, your implants will be fitted in the stronger jawbone at the front of your mouth. A temporary set a teeth will then be fixed to the implants. A healing period of at least six months is required for your mouth to recover. Once your mouth has healed, you will return to our dental surgery in Hill Mill for your dentures to be fitted.
Your dentures should be cleaned with a soft-bristled toothbrush and cold or lukewarm water. Using hot water along with toothpaste will cause the dentures to deteriorate. Your dentist in Mill Hill will advise you on looking after your dentures correctly.
