Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Modern Dentures Differ from Traditional Dentures?

Modern dentures differ from traditional ones in several ways. They are often more lightweight and natural-looking, thanks to improved materials and technology. Additionally, modern dentures are custom-fitted to your mouth, offering a more secure and comfortable fit. They can also be supported by dental implants for increased stability.

Are Modern Dentures Comfortable to Wear?

Yes, modern dentures are designed with comfort in mind. They are custom-made to fit the contours of your mouth, reducing irritation and discomfort. Many patients find them much more comfortable than older, ill-fitting dentures. The use of advanced materials also contributes to a more pleasant wearing experience.

Can I Eat and Speak Normally with Modern Dentures?

Absolutely. Modern dentures are crafted to restore your ability to eat and speak with confidence. Their secure fit and improved design make it easier to enjoy a wide variety of foods without worrying about discomfort or slipping. Your speech may also improve, as modern dentures are less likely to cause speech impediments.

How Do I Care for and Maintain Modern Dentures?

Proper care is essential to maintain the longevity and appearance of modern dentures. Here are some tips:

  • Remove and rinse dentures after meals.
  • Brush dentures daily with a soft-bristle brush and denture cleaner.
  • Soak dentures in a denture-cleaning solution overnight.
  • Handle dentures with care to avoid damage.
  • Regularly visit your dentist for check-ups and adjustments.

By following these guidelines and maintaining good oral hygiene, you can ensure that your modern dentures stay in excellent condition for years to come.

Can I Sleep with Modern Dentures In?

While it’s generally recommended to remove your dentures at night before sleeping, some people choose to sleep with them in their mouths. However, it’s essential to understand the potential benefits and risks.

Sleeping without dentures allows your oral tissues to rest and recover, promoting better oral health. It also reduces the risk of accidentally damaging the dentures during sleep. However, if you decide to sleep with your dentures, ensure they are well-maintained and cleaned daily to prevent oral health issues.

It’s best to consult your dentist for personalised advice on whether sleeping with dentures is suitable for your specific situation. They can provide guidance based on your oral health needs and preferences.

My fear of dentists is gone, thanks the team at Essential Dental Care. So caring, so considerate, so professional. I had a hygienist service and two fillings. I have never had such wonderful experience sitting in a dentist chair. I was recommend this place by a friend, and I am forever grateful. There is a group of us now, who all go here :) Thank you all and you sure have me as your regular customer for years to come.

My husband and I would not go anywhere else, Dr Paul is the most experienced dentist that we have had and explains everything to you. My husband is in the middle of getting implants and he was a bit apprehensive at first but Paul was very patient and explained everything that is going happen and reassured him. It is a long process but will be worth the wait. Also the staff could not be more helpful and very friendly too. Would recommend this practice to anyone.💓

由於家母牙齒出問題,規勸良久才肯就醫,幾經波折,在愛丁堡找到這家可以全程以廣東話溝通的牙科診所,診所職員 Carman了解後,認為情況緊急,特意安排了快期,隔天便能就診。牙醫 Paul 診症細心,並教導了日常的護理方法及開药,回家後一兩天病情已告好轉,值得推薦。

First thing to say is that Paul does very high quality work. He pays attention to detail, spots trouble before it happens, and is very quick to find an appointment time if you do have pain, and sorts it out effectively every time. Secondly, he is very gentle; he’ll tell you when he’s about to numb you up, but to be honest, that’s about the last you’re aware of it. He checks with you that you’re ok, and is careful to make sure your mouth isn’t open wide any longer than it needs to be. Thirdly, he and Michelle run a very effective and friendly practice; they made every effort to keep open as much as possible during lockdown whilst giving every confidence that they were doing all they could to keep their patients safe. And they still do. I can’t commend them highly enough nor thank them warmly enough for all their care and attention.

Cannot fault the team at Essential dental. They are always seem to run on time and put me at ease throughout. Dr Au just gets on with it. Would recommend to anyone.

I have had an extremely positive experience at Essential Dental Care. While a bit pricey (as with any private dentist), Dr Paul has always been very patient and happy to answer any questions I've had about my treatment. I also have to say that this is the first dental practice I asked about a partial denture who did not immediately try to upsell me to a dental implant. While I do need to eventually get the implant, it can be very costly and Dr Paul understood that I really just needed a cosmetic solution in the interim. Highly recommended.
