Quite often a denture can break purely by accident; dropped in the sink when cleaning, knocked off of the night table or even that the puppy got them, we have heard it all! Sometime though there are more worrying reasons. Ill -fitting dentures create unequal pressure and opposing teeth can cause damage. When we repair your denture we will ask you how it broke, it is important to us that you have the information you need to keep your dentures in tip top condition as further treatment may be required.
Sandra will meet with you to get to know you and what you want to achieve, she will conduct a quick oral examination, don’t worry, this is just a quick look to see what’s going on in there.
You will be asked to complete a medical history form, we need to know if you have any ongoing problems or have had previous denture treatment that didn’t work for you. Sandra needs this to make sure that any advice or treatment is tailored specifically for you, this is of course, kept safe and confidential.
Sandra will then chat through all of your options, listen to any questions you have and answer them, jargon free and face-to-face.
After your consultation Sandra will write to you detailing everything discussed and provide you with a treatment plan so you know exactly what will happen if you decide to proceed.
Sandra feels it is hugely important that you have all the information you need before you make a decision, we don’t want to sell you something, we want to help you to make the right decisions, within your budget and in your own time.
