COVID-19

To protect the safety of our patients and staff during the current outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to suspend all but emergency dental care across our dental practices.

Routine dental appointments will be cancelled. If you require emergency treatment please call your practice on 01977 552670 who will advise you what to do.

Your safety, and that of our team is our top priority, so please do not attend practices in person for any reason unless you are asked to do so.

Dentures

A HEALTHY MOUTH IS ESSENTIAL FOR A SUCCESSFUL DENTURE.

Therefore you will need to ensure that your remaining teeth and gums are in good condition. This artificial appliance must lie on clean healthy surfaces even when all your teeth have been lost.

When a diseased or damaged tooth is lost, the hole (socket) in the gum heals initially by a blood-clot and then by the jaw bone and gum shrinking to cover it. As the muscles of the face lose the support of the lost teeth and jaw bone, the face can start to sag and fall inward. A denture will replace both the missing teeth and gums, and restore chewing function.
