Comfortable Natural Dentures At Azure Dental, Formby

Do You Wish That You Could Eat Out In Public Again Without Feeling Self Conscious And Embarrassed? If your answer to this question is ‘yes’; and you would like to start going to restaurants and pubs with your family and friends, if you’re ready to start feeling good about yourself again- then Azure Dental is ready to help you with new natural dentures.

While some people cope well with wearing dentures, many people do find them difficult to tolerate, embarrassing to wear and struggle to eat and live normally. Resorting to using denture adhesive to try and help stabilise the naturally occuring movements of the denture in the mouth while the tongue, cheeks and lips move.

Ben has been so patient with me through out my treatment I am so beyond happy with the finished result I highly recommend! All the azure team are so polite and helpful wouldn’t go any where else!

My Mum (Carol Smith) recently had implant surgery and had her final appointment 2 weeks ago. As always, excellent care at Azure Dental and a fabulous end result.

Mum is so proud of herself as she has had a strong fear of the dentist all her life. Dan is AMAZING and Mum often says how he really is the “pain free dentist”.

Many thanks to his excellent team, who do wonders in keeping Mum calm with a special thank you to Becca for always keeping her informed.

Big smiles all round 😁

After having treatment I even received a follow up call 24 hrs later, on a Sunday, now that is a service 👌. I myself a ward sister of 17years in the NHS would recommend this practice. The staff are professional, efficient and so understanding ( my fear of the dentist), it is a clean, and very friendly environment

I can not recommend Dan Hines enough, I’ve just finished my orthodontic treatment and I am absolutely thrilled with my results. He’s a brilliant dentist and his nurse Becky is fantastic too both so friendly, patient and genuinely lovely people. I did my research before choosing which dentist I would like to take on my case and I chose Dan as he is one of the most precise, thorough dentists I know. Both him and Becky have been so professional and welcoming throughout my whole treatment, explaining every stage and answering any of my concerns. If your looking for a brilliant dentist that is so down to earth and puts you at ease Dan is your man! Thank you so much for all your help!

I live on a narrow boat and continually cruise the UK’s inland waterways....I am also terrified of dentists. When I say terrified, I say it without exaggeration. So terrified am I, that I had spent the twelve months prior to seeing Dan and his team, eating paracetamol like they were Smarties. My husband and I where moored in Maghull, when he declared enough was enough and dragged me (kicking and screaming) by train, to Azure Dental. My initial consultation confirmed what I had suspected, I needed four teeth removed. I can not begin to explain my abject fear at that prospect. Dan was lovely, kind and truly sensitive. He reassured me that I would feel no pain and he was 100% right, doing everything to ensure that result. Consequently, I returned to this practice and followed through with my treatment, each time my fear abating.
My boat is now moored in Market Harborough (East Midlands). I travelled for two hours by train to Manchester and then drove an hour to have Dan and his hygienist complete my treatment.
Big shout out to the lovely young blonde woman who held my hand initially and her dark haired colleague (sorry I don’t know either of your names) who helped me remain calm and relaxed for the rest of my treatment. I truly appreciated both of you. X

Dan, I will see you again. Thank you most sincerely.

I am so pleased that I joined Azure Dental's easy payment plan 2 years ago. It is a joy to be able to go to the dentist and not have to worry about paying. Dan is "the smiling dentist" par excellance! He has a genuine concern for me & my teeth, & I know that I am in safe hands. Likewise, with his hygienist staff - always very thorough & professional. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly.

As a nervous patient I have always struggled to keep up with my dental care but on my first visit to Azure a woman who was just leaving said to me that I would be fine. Dan is brilliant she said and she was right. My teeth were in quite a state as I had not visited a dentist in years. He reassured me and explained everything and the whole experience was so much better than I was expecting.
That was a couple of years ago now and I no longer dread going to the dentist. Dan and all his team do a great job.

Definitely recommend anyone to go here!! Will miss coming for an appt. ☺️

Excellent customer service and genuinely nice people. After a lot of research and a number of consultations I chose Dan for my Six Month Smile and he didn't disappoint, quick and efficient. I have since needed a couple of minor repairs to my retainer, on the first occasion I was concerned it was going to be very expensive but it wasn't it was a reasonable amount which reaffirmed my opinion. Highly recommended!

I was recommended to go for an assessment to Azure Dental. I have had some terrible experiences with dentists over a lifetime of difficulties with my teeth and I was a little sceptical. However from the moment I walked in I was treated brilliantly. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The consultation with Dan was the most thorough I have ever experienced. He is fastidious, obviously extremely knowledgable and competent. In addition he was polite, caring and courteous. He was able to make a difficult diagnosis with care and accuracy. I have no hesitation in recommending them. I shall be staying with them now I have found them.

I have always suffered from gum infections leading to receding gums and ultimately loss of teeth. I have a very unreasonable fear of dentist. I attended Azure for a consultation which was very thorough . I was assured that my fear would be treated with respect. My next appointment went absolutely superb. I have another appointment in the near future and I am not feeling the fear! Would absolutely recommend Azure to anyone.

Complete Comfortable Dentures- Full Dentures

The terms used for a full set of false teeth which are used when someone needs replacement teeth due to extensive terminal gum disease or when someone is about to lose their final existing teeth.

Partial Natural Dentures

This is the term for when someone still has some teeth in one or other jaw and requires a number of spaces to be filled with a simple straightforward solution. These appliances can be made entirely with acrylic only (so it is all pink plastic) or with a metal chrome base with pink acrylic and teeth where the teeth and gums need to be. Chrome bases are signifcantly stronger; but more importantly are usually much less bulky all round and can have a better grip and functional stability, as any clasps and rest seats designed to hold the surrounding natural teeth are part of the framework.

Temporary Dentures

When teeth are removed the bone has to heal before any permenant replacements can be manufactured. This is because the bone shrinks alot during the first 3 month healing period. If a dental plate is made immediately this is always a temporary measure for either or both cosmetic and functional reasons. One to give people more teeth again to chew with or because the missing tooth or teeth will show in the smile, and so they wish to have the gap/s filled to avoid any embarassment during this period.

Denture Stabilisation- Implant Retained Dentures- Implant Supported Dentures

These are the terms used for when dental implants are placed into the jaw and allowed to heal. Then special anchor attachments inside the base can be used to clip a set of dentures onto them. Thus stabilising and retaining the dental plate ensuring there is no looseness, lifting and wobbling. This means you can eat/chew/drink/smile/talk and laugh without worry!

The anchor attachments can be simple snap fit versions which are especially good for 2 implants in the lower jaw or it can be more complex with a special titanium bar joining 2-4 implants together in top or bottom jaws to provide even greater stability and security with 4 implants and a bar almost being semi-fixed due to the titanium bar taking all the biting forces when eating.

Precision Attachment Natural Dentures

This type of comfortable natural denture is possible when someone still has a few of their own teeth with good stable oral health around them. If this is the case then you may be a candidate for precision attachments to work similar to implants to aid in holding your partial denture in place. The treatment usually involves preparing one tooth on each side of the mouth for a crown. The usual impression for a normal natural denture is taken but this then also includes the prepared teeth either side. The laboratory are then able to manufacture special crowns, that have an attachment sticking out of the gold framework and the dentures including the opposing attachment glued inside. Thus ensuring everything fits together perfectly and they can act similar to implant dentures.

Cleaning and Maintenance

It is crucial that the same good health regimes are maintained whether someone has a complete set or part set of replacement natural denture teeth. Cleaning your dentures is vitaly important using soap and water with an old soft brush and then soaking in a disinfectant such as Steradent.

If you have remaining teeth then it is even more vital that they are looked after with an excellent oral hygiene regime to ensure they stay healthy and stable. This is because they will be more prone to bacteria and debris build up around the surfaces that the natural denture fits against which can cause problems with decay and gum disease going forwards. The stabilty and fit of the comfortable denture plate will be being greatly enhanced by the friction from these teeth and if lost over time both the healing from the shrinking bone and the loss of contact will mean greater progressive looseness and instability.

Denture Manufacturing Stages

To produce a high quality bespoke set of natural dentures takes alot of time, care and attention, with usually 4-5 visits approximately a week apart to allow time for the laboratory technicians then time to create the next stage of your plan. This can change depending on review visits to finalise the aesthetic setup and if a metal framework base is being used for a partial denture.

Appointment 1- Initial primary impressions taken for the lab to produce a “special tray” for your mouth and a bite registration block

Appointment 2- The multi-stage 3D master impression to achieve the most perfect replica of your mouth- this is crucial and completely different to a normal single stage impression technique. This determines how good the overall fit and grip your denture will have once completed. Your bite is also registered at this visit to ensure everything will fit together and function properly

Appointment 3- The aesthetics setup and tryin review- this stage lets us ensure the impression we took at the last visit has created a perfect model of your mouth and so the final processed denture will fit perfectly. Also we are reviewing the cosmetic tooth apperance in your face to ensure the shape/ style/ length of teeth is correct for you. This stage is always in wax to enable subtle changes in position to be performed as desired prior to finihsing the denture. The setup produced by the lab can be perfect/ very natural or somewhere in between bespoke to you. We always ask if you have a photo showing your natural teeth so that if you wish we can copy the same shape and style to look just like you when younger.

Appointment 4- The final natural denture is completed and fitted, any initial pressure adjustments are made to ensure the minimum amount of rubbing in the early days while the new plate “beds in”. We then review and make minor adjustments to any pressure spots as you start to use the new teeth.

I can not recommend Dan Hines enough, I’ve just finished my orthodontic treatment and I am absolutely thrilled with my results. He’s a brilliant dentist and his nurse Becky is fantastic too both so friendly, patient and genuinely lovely people. I did my research before choosing which dentist I would like to take on my case and I chose Dan as he is one of the most precise, thorough dentists I know. Both him and Becky have been so professional and welcoming throughout my whole treatment, explaining every stage and answering any of my concerns. If your looking for a brilliant dentist that is so down to earth and puts you at ease Dan is your man! Thank you so much for all your help!

I live on a narrow boat and continually cruise the UK’s inland waterways....I am also terrified of dentists. When I say terrified, I say it without exaggeration. So terrified am I, that I had spent the twelve months prior to seeing Dan and his team, eating paracetamol like they were Smarties. My husband and I where moored in Maghull, when he declared enough was enough and dragged me (kicking and screaming) by train, to Azure Dental. My initial consultation confirmed what I had suspected, I needed four teeth removed. I can not begin to explain my abject fear at that prospect. Dan was lovely, kind and truly sensitive. He reassured me that I would feel no pain and he was 100% right, doing everything to ensure that result. Consequently, I returned to this practice and followed through with my treatment, each time my fear abating.
My boat is now moored in Market Harborough (East Midlands). I travelled for two hours by train to Manchester and then drove an hour to have Dan and his hygienist complete my treatment.
Big shout out to the lovely young blonde woman who held my hand initially and her dark haired colleague (sorry I don’t know either of your names) who helped me remain calm and relaxed for the rest of my treatment. I truly appreciated both of you. X

Dan, I will see you again. Thank you most sincerely.

I am so pleased that I joined Azure Dental's easy payment plan 2 years ago. It is a joy to be able to go to the dentist and not have to worry about paying. Dan is "the smiling dentist" par excellance! He has a genuine concern for me & my teeth, & I know that I am in safe hands. Likewise, with his hygienist staff - always very thorough & professional. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly.

As a nervous patient I have always struggled to keep up with my dental care but on my first visit to Azure a woman who was just leaving said to me that I would be fine. Dan is brilliant she said and she was right. My teeth were in quite a state as I had not visited a dentist in years. He reassured me and explained everything and the whole experience was so much better than I was expecting.
That was a couple of years ago now and I no longer dread going to the dentist. Dan and all his team do a great job.

Best dentist ever!! Dan and his team are lovely. I was so ashamed of my teeth when I came for the consultation. Every visit I was actually excited for my appt. yesterday my brace has come off and I can't stop smiling showing my teeth, can't wait to smile on my wedding day showing my straight teeth! Definitely recommend anyone to go here!! Will miss coming for an appt. ☺️

Been going to Azure Dental since they opened and they have always been superb. I recommended by Son to go too. He needed extensive treatment and he was delighted with the results. Their newly appointed dental hygienist is a great asset to the group.
Long may it continue .........

I have had clear braces fitted in my 40s and although I was a bit concerned I might be too old Dan was so nice and very easy to talk to. I am half way through now and know I will be delighted with the results. I would definitely recommend the practice �

Excellent customer service and genuinely nice people. After a lot of research and a number of consultations I chose Dan for my Six Month Smile and he didn't disappoint, quick and efficient. I have since needed a couple of minor repairs to my retainer, on the first occasion I was concerned it was going to be very expensive but it wasn't it was a reasonable amount which reaffirmed my opinion. Highly recommended!

I was recommended to go for an assessment to Azure Dental. I have had some terrible experiences with dentists over a lifetime of difficulties with my teeth and I was a little sceptical. However from the moment I walked in I was treated brilliantly. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The consultation with Dan was the most thorough I have ever experienced. He is fastidious, obviously extremely knowledgable and competent. In addition he was polite, caring and courteous. He was able to make a difficult diagnosis with care and accuracy. I have no hesitation in recommending them. I shall be staying with them now I have found them.

Marvellous and painless treatment and friendly staff. No complaints. I've recommended Azure to my daughter and now she's joined and is confident to have alignment done by them. You can have a laugh with the team there and there's not many dentists you can say that about!! X

Hi Just wanted to write a review about Azure Dental Formby. I have only currently joined the practice and have visited a couple of times as I am getting continuous treatment at the moment. I can not recommend this practice highly enough. From the staff to the treatment i am having, 1st class service. I am finally after having years of problems with my teeth getting my smile back to how it was. Can not thank them all enough. ����

Saw Dan for the first time today. I was losing my mind with worry, he put me at ease explaining all and I felt re assured and very comfortable. Even with all my treatments to come which have been discussed, I felt ready to take it all on and finally feel good about my teeth. Thanks Dan! 🙂

I have always suffered from gum infections leading to receding gums and ultimately loss of teeth. I have a very unreasonable fear of dentist. I attended Azure for a consultation which was very thorough . I was assured that my fear would be treated with respect. My next appointment went absolutely superb. I have another appointment in the near future and I am not feeling the fear! Would absolutely recommend Azure to anyone.

Iam currently undergoing treatment with Dan and his team and can't thank them enough. I was so apprehensive and nervous regarding dentists but no more after visiting Azure. They really do put you at ease and endeavour to make your treatment pain free. If you have a dentist phobia Dan and his team are well worth a visit.

'I Have A Fantastic Smile'

“Having been given an ultimatum by my daughter to acquire a new set of dentures for her wedding in April- Dan and his charming assistants pulled out all the stops to ensure that not only did I have a fantastic smile for the photos but that I also thoroughly enjoyed the meal. However I do not think they were responsible for the amazing weather!

Dan provided a friendly but very professional service, with much attention to detail both regards the looks and fit. Probably my best moment was being complimented on my new ‘veneers’ by a very stylish woman. I really would recommend the Azure Dental practice in Formby to everyone. I wish them well for the future in their new location.”
