Solutions To Your Denture Crisis

Are You Struggling With A Denture, A Partial Denture Or Missing Most Of Your Teeth? Would You Like An Option That Will Help To Restore Your Confidence, And Let You Eat Out In Public Again?

If you have answered ‘yes’ then we have the answers for you. In fact we have 3 possible solutions depending on your concerns and your goals.

Here’s Morven to explain…

Introducing Option 1 – Fixed Teeth

The most popular option. It’s a horse-shoe shape. There’s no palate, there is nothing covering the roof of your mouth. So, you don’t have issues of taste. It feels as close to natural teeth as can possibly be achieved with a full jaw of implants.

What we can do is put implants in, generally in the morning, and then in the afternoon we can fit some teeth for you. We refer to that “fast and fix” teeth in a day.

We usually start with a temporary bridge. Something that would last for a few months, before we would then look to make something that are called “the definitive bridge”. This is where we go through the smile design process and really get something looking exactly the way you would like it.

The real benefit of fixed teeth is that you can chew, you can smile, you can just get on with your life. It really is a fantastic option if you are either missing or beginning to lose quite a few teeth.

Introducing Option 2 – Telescopic Bridge

Option number two is what we call a telescopic bridge. This is something that is removable, but it only comes out on command. It will not come out when you are speaking, it will not come out when you are eating and socialising with your friends.

The benefit of this is it has, again is you don’t have that plate covering over the roof of your mouth.  Being removable it’s very, very easy to keep nice and clean.

It’s also good for those who feel that when they take their denture out there is not enough support for your lip, and you feel that your face is maybe looking a bit collapsed. We can bulk areas up that help support your face a bit more.

Furthermore, this option can really change how you can socialise and be with your friends, and live your life without having to worry about dentures moving about or teeth breaking down and becoming painful.

Introducing Option 3 – Implant Retained Denture

An implant retained denture involves the bottom jaw generally having between two and four implants placed and in the top jaw, between four and six implants. Once the implants are in place the denture essentially just clips into place, and once it clips in, it’s nice and rigid.

The option of an implant retained denture is a significant improvement to a traditional denture, however, there is still a little rock and a little bit of movement.

In addition, over time, the inserts will get a bit of wear on them, and the denture won’t be held in quite as well. These are very quick and easy to replace and are not expensive to replace.

Denture Problems

The real problem for people, particularly for those who have had dentures since they were in their twenties, is that they have been wearing a denture for a long time and now they just can’t tolerate it.

Let me explain. Many people will feel that the denture is jiggling, which affects your confidence. You stop eating out with your friends. You stop socialising. Therefore, a couple of implants in the bottom jaw can make a significant improvement. Everything just clips into place and lets you get on with your life and function with a denture the way you can.

How To Find Out More

If you are interested in finding out more about these options, we really need to see you to determine what it is that you are looking for and what it is that you want to achieve through your treatment. We invite you to come in and see one of our smile advisors for a complimentary consultation.

Your smile advisor will be able to take you through some options, and if you decide that you are happy with those we would get you in with one of our dentists, who would then go through a full assessment with you. This is where we can look at everything, take some x-rays, possibly some scans too, then discuss everything. You will see that everything has been road-mapped out for you before you decide that you are happy enough to go ahead.

Stuart WilsonDentistry on the Clyde – Review 20.2.24Now in my 70th year and with my top teeth failing I feared I was heading for the dreaded full denture. Thankfully I was very fortunate to be referred to Dentistry on the Clyde.There I met with my wonderful Smile Advisor, Chloe who explored my options with me.Subsequently I met with Dr Morven McCauley who specialises in implantology. Instinctively I felt a very reassuring confidence from Morven, I was very sure I was now in the presence of dentistry excellence. Certainly I was not mistaken and thanks to Morven and her team I now have a wonderful new ceramic upper arch fitted onto six implants.All the staff I met at the practice were brilliant, Smile advisor, Chloe, Dental Nurse, Yvonne, Hygienist, Thurga and all the reception staff.Of course, leading this great team is the very wonderful Dr Morven McCauley, whom in my humble opinion is simply the very best dentist I have ever met, I truly believe she is a real ‘Superstar’ in the world of dentistry. All my treatment was completely pain free and I looked forward to each visit.If you are looking for a top dental practice, please look no further. Without reservation I would highly recommend Dentistry on The Clyde.

Dentistry on the Clyde has been a life changer.Originally apprehensive about booking an appointment due negative experiences in the past with my previous dentist, I was quickly put at ease with my dentist, Jack.Jack has been excellent throughout my appointments. He communicated clearly and was very understanding throughout. My hygienist, Thurga, was also excellent - again giving me tips on how I can better look after my teeth.Throughout my time with DOTC, my appointments were scheduled well in advanced and I was able to work my appointments around my career. My teeth are now the best they have ever been and I am no longer apprehensive about going to the dentist. I would highly recommend this dentistry!

Friendly, helpful service. Reassuring as well, I'm a really nervous patient so it helps me a lot. Plus my dentist, Morven, is great and dental nurse Yvonne is always friendly and chatty. The crippling fear that I had of the dentist has now disappeared, hopefully for good.

I saw this Dental practice online and after having some problems with a broken tooth booked an appointment.I was given an initial assessment to see what treatment may be required and advised of costs , treatment schedule and what to expect . Staff are friendly and put you at ease.My treatment by Ross was carried out quickly and proffesionally , pain-free. As well as having the initial problem fixed I opted for Whitening and additional cosmetic work . I am very happy with the end result which is more than I could have wished for .

I have just completed my Invisalign journey with Nial and the results are better than I ever imagined .. Nial always made sure I was 100% happy through out the journey. I cannot thank Nial enough for giving me such perfect straight teeth. Nial has given me the confidence that I have always wanted when showing my teeth. I would highly recommend Dentistry on the Clyde. I can’t stop smiling!!! 😃
Gemma M.

I started my journey just over a year ago, I was referred to Nial by Chloe. From the very 1st appointment I felt welcomed & valued. I was very well advised by Nial with the treatment I was going to receive to achieve my perfect smile. 1st step was invisalign, this was very easy to manoeuvre and the scanning & app process is so handy, you always have your dentist on hand for any queries. Once my teeth were straight I started the whitening process, having very sensitive teeth this had to be adapted to suit my needs which again Nial helped with amazingly! Lastly was the bonding, I was really worried about this part due to how sensitive my teeth were Nial advised an anesthetic to completely numb my mouth. (I am terrified of needles so was extremely nervous) I did not feel a thing and I am SO glad this is the route Nial advised to go down, it really was pain free. Nial also advised to get some composite edge bonding on my bottom teeth at the very start of the process but after the straightening & whitening I didn’t need it & I agree! This really shows he is about his clients needs over the money they might pay. Really happy with the outcome of my teeth & I am so much more confident within myself. Thank you so much to Nial & his team, I was not the easiest of clients but you guys made me feel so welcome. If you are thinking of getting bonding just do it!

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Dentistry on the Clyde over the last couple years. The whole team are so friendly and professional and have made going to the dentist now a whole different experience to when I was growing up, I only wish I’d went to them sooner. I had high speed braces and teeth whitening that have grown my confidence completely and now I absolutely love to smile any chance I get! Special shoutout to my dentist Nial - such a nice, professional guy and an absolute credit to the team. Thanks for everything guys 😊

I don't think I have ever met someone who can calm a very nervous patient like myself than what Jade can do. She is worth her weight in gold. Had a 2 hour appointment today and her calmness and ability to put me at ease was unlike anything I have experienced before. She is a true credit to your team. Thank you Jade!

It took me a long time to face going to the dentist to sort my teeth. I had been very insecure about my smile and it did have a significant impact on my confidence over the years. Right from the beginning I was made to feel welcome by everyone I met in the practice. Ross (my dentist) took the time to explain how he could help and what was involved. I always found Ross to be honest and upfront about any part of the treatment. My final smile took a tad longer than we had anticipated however, this was due to the professionalism shown and Ross not wishing for his work to be less than 100% perfect. I am so glad I finally faced my fear and got this done, and I can't thank you enough :-)

Very professional, friendly staff who make you feel at ease as soon as you go in. Being very nervous of the dentist everything is explained to me step by step and they take their time with you also. Got work done last week and didn't feel a thing which was a relief and getting more work done which isn't worrying me now. I would highly recommend if you have a fear of the dentist

I have been going to Dentistry on the Clyde for over a year now and find them to be amazing. Everyone there from the receptionists to the dental assistants and dentists have been very accommodating and perform their jobs to the highest standard. The two dentists who have done the majority of my work Jade and Niall have been the epitome of professional and when they say pain free they really mean it, there’s no one better. I would highly recommend Dentistry on the Clyde to anyone looking for top tier dental work.
