Despite increased awareness of the importance of dental care, millions of people still lose teeth as a result of gum disease, tooth decay and injury. Those missing teeth have the option of getting dental implants, bridges or dentures as a solution to tooth loss. At Junomedical we partner with the most experienced oral surgeons around the world. These specialists offer dentures at up to 80% less than the average cost in the UK, US and Australia. The price of the treatment depends on whether full or partial dentures are needed and whether they are fixed with dental implants or removable. The material which the dentures are made of also affects the cost. After looking at your X-rays the specialist can provide you with a treatment plan and price quote. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of skilled oral surgeons, many of whom attained their medical qualifications from UK and US medical schools, have won awards, and are members of prestigious associations.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Depending on whether a patient is missing a few teeth or all of their teeth, partial or full dentures may be required. The dentist will make a series of impressions and take measurements of your jaw in order to create a mold or computerized image of your teeth which will be used to create a set of dentures which are individually tailored to your mouth. Occasionally teeth must be extracted before dentures are made, in which case, the gums must heal before molds are taken as the bone will change shape following the extraction. In the 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed, temporary dentures will be used until a permanent solution is provided. Dentures are recommended for patients with partial or complete tooth loss when dental implants are not an option. Dentures may feel odd or uncomfortable to patients who have never worn them before but will feel more natural in time. Patients with new dentures are recommended to eat soft foods which have been cut into small pieces initially so that they get used to eating with them. Extremely sharp, hard and sticky foods should be avoided. Many dentists recommend wearing the dentures overnight until you get used to them.
