Finding Quality Dentures in Sutton Coldfield

Dentures often come in for a bad rap. Often portrayed in comic sketches as ungainly and prone to falling out, there is little wonder that many people are now turning to dental implants to ensure that this does not happen. Although there is little doubt that dental implants are a fantastic option, for some people, especially those who are dental phobic, the thought of the procedure itself is simply too much, which leaves dentures as the most likely option to replace a lost or missing teeth.

Despite their sometimes unwarranted reputation though, wearing dentures does not have to be a trial. Here at Arthur House Dental Care, we have been fitting dentures for over 20 years and for a wide range of satisfied patients throughout the West Midlands.

Over the years we have put a lot of time and effort into finding the best dentures on the market and have concluded that Valplast dentures are up there with the best. Not only do they have a lifetime guarantee but are easy to look after and, according to our patients, pretty comfortable too; something that many dentures aren’t.

Naturally, advances have been made in the production of dentures and whilst it may not be immediately obvious, they are actually engineered to the highest standard. Our dentures look entirely natural and will leave you feeling confident and with few concerns that they may become loose or fall out at an embarrassing moment. When fitted correctly, you should be able to feel free to eat, laugh, smile or whatever you want to do, confident in the knowledge that they are secure in your mouth.

If you already wear dentures and are happy with them apart from the fact that they move around in your mouth, we can also help you. By using 4 dental implants placed strategically into the jawbone we can use these to hold your dentures firmly in place and you need never worry again about them becoming loose. Although some people are unsure about this procedure, we can assure you that it is a procedure that is no more uncomfortable than many others. In fact the jawbone itself has very few nerves and this, coupled with the use of appropriate anaesthetics, should ensure that your treatment is as pain free as possible.

Valplast Dentures

The reasons why we use Valplast dentures are as follows:


Unlike some other dentures, Valplast dentures are made from a high quality resin that is designed to adapt and move along with the movements of your mouth. This flexibility means that there is no rigidity to cause discomfort and chafing of the gums. There are also no metal clasps which can cause discomfort too.


Valplast dentures are made to match the natural colour of your teeth and gums so that if you have a full upper arch of teeth replaced, for example, they will be made to match the colour of the lower arch. If desired, of course, you may choose to have the lower arch whitened if you want all of your teeth to be whiter than they currently are. You should be aware though that if you do this, they will gradually darken again and will then not match the colour of your dentures so you would need to revisit the tooth whitening procedure occasionally to ensure that they match.

At Arthur House Dental Care in Sutton Coldfield, we have a great deal of experience in providing comfortable, modern dentures and our team would be delighted to discuss the options with you.
