A denture is a removable appliance used to replace missing teeth and adjacent gum tissues. Modern techniques and materials create natural looking false teeth, which are both functional and efficient.
We can provide a partial denture, which fills in the gaps created by missing teeth and prevents the remaining teeth from changing position, or a complete one to replace all the teeth. There are two types of complete dentures:
Conventional - these are placed in the mouth after all the teeth which need to be replaced have been removed and all post extraction healing has occurred.
Immediate - these are placed in the mouth as soon as the teeth have been removed.
Ridgemount provides the highest quality dentures using the latest materials, to ensure a perfect fit and appearance for your mouth.
In the UK, an estimated 6,000 15-year-old children suffer dental injuries each year because they do not wear protective sport guards during sport. The long term consequences of these injuries are great, with constant pain, suffering and years of advanced dental treatment.
Therefore, we advise that patients wear a protective sport guard during any contact sport or one in which there is a significant chance of facial injury. At Ridgemount, we offer a custom-made sport guard service which results in a better fit than the fit-it-yourself guards sold in shops. A better fit ensures that the sport guard will stay in place and protect the teeth more effectively.
