What exactly are dentures in Edinburgh?
Dentures are artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning and are made from a variety of optional materials such as nylon, metal or acrylic. They are crafted by technicians specifically for the patient, to fit very snugly over the area where the teeth are missing. There are many options for patients who need dentures. If all the teeth need to be replaced, a complete set of dentures in Edinburgh could be the solution, these would replace the upper and lower teeth. For those who only have one or a couple of teeth missing, partial dentures or individual artificial teeth could suffice.
Why bother with dentures?
The gaps where teeth used to be can be a place where food is easily caught and this leads to tooth decay if not cleaned properly. Dentures may help with talking and eating and could boost your confidence no end, as they manage to bring your perfect smile back to your face!
