According to recent studies, the average adult between the ages of 20 and 64 has three or more decayed or missing teeth. If you have lost one, several or all of your teeth due to decay, gum disease, trauma, injury or old age, there are plenty of medical reasons to seek treatment. For one thing, large gaps between your teeth may affect your ability to speak or eat. More importantly, remaining teeth can shift and become loose, even resulting in bone loss.
Luckily, with modern advances in dentistry, you do not have to suffer from missing teeth. At Forest Dental in Loughton, we offer flexible cosmetic dentures, for patients who are looking for a more comfortable and attractive alternative to traditional acrylic dentures. Flexible dentures are more lightweight and barely unnoticeable when fitted. At our dental practice, we offer both Duraflex and Valplast flexible dentures for patients who want to enjoy the benefits of removable dentures without the hassle.
Aesthetically pleasing dentures
The materials of our dentures are nearly transparent and blend in with the natural gum tissue, making them virtually invisible. These are ideal for patients who want to replace their missing teeth but are put off by the idea of dental implants or bridges. They are also a viable temporary option for patients who have lost one tooth and are waiting for their dental implant operation. Essentially, flexible removable dentures feel a lot like removable bridges, therefore, do not impede your speech or chewing ability.
More importantly, flexible dentures are lightweight, hypoallergenic, and resilient. We offer a lifetime guarantee against fracture under normal use. Unlike conventional dentures, they are metal-free and do not interfere with your natural teeth. As they are significantly smaller and smoother they are not painful and feel more comfortable inside your mouth.
Patients who opt for flexible dentures do not need to worry about their dentures feeling loose or falling down while they are speaking or laughing. Our innovative flexible dentures are custom-made for each patient and can be ready in as little as three weeks. More importantly, they do not require any complex adjustments once they have been fixed into your teeth and gums.
