Full or partial dentures are available on either acrylic or metal bases to a variety of specifications.
Our preferred system is “Enigma”, with extremely life-like teeth and an exceptionally strong base. We use a local dental laboratory, who has over 30 years' experience, we can even make “gums” look real!
Implant supported dentures, both fixed and removable, solve many problems; click on ‘Patient Education’ for further information.
A large percentage of people grind their teeth whilst asleep, which can result in toothache, broken/chipped teeth, head and neck aches. We can provide a custom-made device (NTI-tss) which clips onto your front teeth and has been scientifically proven to actually prevent grinding/clenching (some appliances can actually make the problem worse.)
Another common problem is snoring, which may not be as bad for the one doing the snoring as those around them! After a screening process to highlight any medical or physical factors, a custom-made device ("sleepwell") can be fabricated which holds the bottom jaw forwards during sleep. Keeping the airway open is one of the key factors in reducing snoring, and has demonstrated a 70% success rate.
