Silkstone Denture Clinic offers many services, ranging from conventional dentures and implant-supported dentures, to mouthguards. Our full dentures and partial dentures can be metal, standard plastic, or flexible plastic.
For those who have lost their natural teeth on the upper or lower-part of their mouth, or both, full dentures are most suitable. This type of denture allows you to continue chewing as well as a maintaining a natural smile. Alternatively, we can create immediate dentures, which is worn immediately after your dentist has extracted teeth. This process ensures that you are not subjected to the inconvenience of not having teeth.
This is the ideal for full denture patients, and in some cases partial denture patients. Implants have superior stability and hence provide increased function, particularly with full lower dentures. Whilst the price of having implants placed in your mouth is costly, the relative prices appears to be falling year by year.
Relining assists in keeping your dentures firmly in place, so that you can wear them with comfort and ease. Relining every two to three years ensures your denture is well-adapted to the underlying bone ridge. For immediate denture patients, we recommend a reline after six months, as there will be substantial bone resorption within this time.
Partials can be made of acrylic or chrome material. As a premium alternative to chrome, and for extra comfort, we also make gold partial dentures. This type of denture is most appropriate for filling gaps between your remaining natural teeth, and is the best solution (if possible) as your natural teeth help retain the denture in your mouth.
In the event of a broken or fractured denture, Silkstone Denture Clinic is equipped with the correct tools and materials so that we can repair your and return it to you within a few hours. It is important that you do not try to repair it yourself, and do not ever use superglue. This can cause irreparable damage and may result in the need for a new denture.
Silkstone Denture Clinic creates custom-fabricated mouthguards, which ensures we control over the thickness and consistency of the material, providing greater oral and facial protection. Properly-designed mouthguards are essential in the prevention of athletic oral/facial injuries. For our younger patients, we have a range of colours and patterns to choose from.
