Are dentures painful?
Dentures may feel uncomfortable and loose while your mouth adjusts and it’s not unusual to experience soreness throughout this period. As your mouth begins to accept the plate these problems should subside, but you should seek advice from your dentist if pain continues.
Missing teeth can cause low self-esteem and greatly affect the quality of life. There are a number of possible solutions, but many include potentially painful or costly procedures. Dentures provide an inexpensive bespoke resolution that can boost confidence and self-image without the need for surgery.
The first, full dentures, are constructed on a removable acrylic base that sits over the gums. Acrylic teeth are built onto the plate to provide a natural-looking replacement for all of the original teeth.
Partial dentures are used as an alternative to bridge treatment and fill the gaps in your teeth. This version attaches to the teeth either side of the gap via metal clasps to create the illusion of a full set of teeth.
• Provide a confidence boost for those unhappy with their appearance
• Reduce the strain on teeth either side of the gap
• Correct a bite and prevent leaning or tilting from other teeth
• Reduce the chances of gum disease caused by bacteria trapped in the gap
• Support cheeks and lips to avoid face alteration
Who can benefit?
Just about anyone over the age of 18. You don’t have to belong to a private dental plan. You don’t even have to be a regular visitor at this practice.
What can I use it for?
You can use the loan to pay for most dental work, but it’s particularly suited to more costly private treatments, such as dental implants, orthodontic, aesthetic or cosmetic work. If you’re not sure whether it’s right for your treatment, please ask your dentist.
How much can I borrow?
Typically between £500 and £25,000 depending on the course of the treatment. This will be subject to ‘on-the-spot’ credit check. Most patients’ applications are approved there and then, so you can go ahead and schedule treatment immediately.
How do I repay the loan?
Much like any other loan, you repay it in affordable monthly payments over an agreed term. These payments are collected by Direct Debit.
How much will I pay?
You pay the cost of your treatment – no more and no less. Interest-free means just that!
What are the repayment terms?
Your dentist will be able to go through the various terms with you and agree the most suitable repayment period.
How do I apply?
Once you’ve agreed on a course of treatment – and a cost – with your dentist, we’ll make the credit application on your behalf. As soon as the credit check is complete and the loan process, you’ll receive written confirmation from the credit provider Simpler as that!
Who is the credit provider?
We’re working with one of the most respected credit providers in the business. Ask your dentist for details.
How often can I use the facility?
You can apply for an interest-free loan for each course of treatment, subject to the usual credit check.
