Keeping your teeth young

As we get older suddenly we realised many things we didn't appreciate about being young - being fit, having smooth skin and having all your own teeth. As our loose teeth (and bridges) struggle to deal with chewier food we start eating bland mush and, there is no easy way to say this, OLD PEOPLE FOOD. I'm determined not to let that happen to me and I'm doing everything I can to keep my own teeth as long as possible, and when that's not possible to get the best possible teeth replacement. If you are like me and want to keep on eating whatever you want, I think you'll like my site. It's all about dental health and teeth replacement & maintenance.

  • Tips to Caring for and Maintaining Your Partial Dentures

    9 June 2016

    Partial dentures refer to removable dental appliances that are used to cover a few missing teeth, rather than having to get a full set of dentures. They can be attached using several different methods. The most common option is the use of metallic clasps that attach to the teeth directly adjacent to the gap in your mouth. Another technique your dentist can employ is the use of precision attachments. These precision attachments are the most discreet option; as such, they tend to be more expensive than using metallic clasps.
