Improving denture comfort: Merivale Denture Clinic


Are you happy with your smile? Can you eat what you like? Are your dentures comfortable? At Merivale Denture Clinic they see denture wearers every day who are experiencing difficulty in carrying out normal functional activities. This may be due to a number of factors, one of which is the ability to control the dentures effectively while eating and speaking.

 

 

All this can not only undermine a person’s self-confidence in interacting socially, but it can also have repercussions for health and mental wellbeing. The good news is that by using the latest technology in materials and technique, comfortable fit, function and aesthetic appearance can be drastically improved with dentures at Merivale Denture Clinic.

If you are having problems with your existing dentures, make a time to talk to Thomas Gu, the senior clinician at Merivale Denture Clinic. You can be assured Tom will take the time to listen and endeavour to understand your needs. “For me, spending a good amount of time with each patient before starting the treatment is crucial,” Thomas says.

“This allows me to make a thorough and comprehensive diagnosis to identify the needs and requirements necessary to produce the highest quality dentures. Dentures should be designed to the specific conditions of each patient’s mouth to adequately restore essential functions such as speech and the ability to eat and smile, which a lot of us take for granted.”

Watching patients’ self-confidence return and their quality of life improve is immensely satisfying for Thomas and his team.

Smile with Confidence: Merivale Denture Clinic


Good quality dentures play a significant role in each individual’s physical and psychological health. Poor aesthetics and ill-functioning dentures can lead to poor diet and low self-esteem which can affect the most basic and essential activities in our daily lives from eating to socialising. If these problems go unaddressed, it can cause constant stress on a daily basis which may even lead to depression, as found in many international studies.

 

 

It is paramount to have good, comfortable and well-functioning dentures to eat well especially for the elderly, who are at higher risk of age-related health conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, heart troubles, high blood pressure and cholesterol issues. A well-balanced nutritional diet to manage these conditions in-conjunction with the medications is important.

Good aesthetics in dentures are also essential, as it contributes significantly to individuals’ confidence and psychological wellbeing. Scientific studies suggest that only a second is all it takes to start determining someone’s first impression visually, like attractiveness and character, where facial appearance plays a powerful role in how we perceive and treat each other, hence resulting in our efforts to maintain our aesthetic standards.

Dentures, especially with full plates, not only restore your missing teeth but also support and plump up a big portion of the facial features like the areas around your lips, cheeks and the lower jaw, which determines the profile of half your face. With the right expertise, customised dentures can greatly enhance your appearance and function by providing adequate support to help restore the youthful look back into your smile.

At Merivale Denture Clinic, Thomas’s specialised expertise, skills and friendly down-to-earth manner, provides only the finest quality customised dentures to help all those in need to improve their ability to eat, talk and smile with confidence enhancing physical and psychological wellbeing to ultimately improve each individual’s quality of life.

Transforming smiles: Merivale Denture Clinic aims to take the hassle our of denture wearing

For more than 40 years, the team at Merivale Denture Clinic has been transforming the smiles of thousands of denture wearers. Situated on the corner of Papanui Road and Mansfield Avenue, and with a branch in Nelson, patients come from far and wide based on the clinic’s reputation for making superior dentures.

Whether you are a first time or experienced denture wearer upgrading, have teeth and gum failure in your twenties, or are middle aged with missing teeth, the team at Merivale Denture Clinic can explain your options, the creation and fitting process, and put you at ease.
Practice Manager Ottilia says new full or partial dentures transform the look of your face: people often don’t realise the effect of aging or worn dentures, or missing teeth. A 20-year-old set of dentures might fit like favourite old slippers, but they won’t necessarily look great and could cause problems, which can take longer to correct if left untreated.
These days there is so much importance placed on having nice teeth and there is no need to put up with a gappy smile with so many budget-friendly solutions available. Modern technology and techniques mean that adjusting to new dentures is easier than in the past. The team makes sure your new dentures look natural, enhance your smile and facial structure, and have optimum function. Ottilia says it’s very rewarding to see the improvement in every patient.
