Sports Guard Disinfectant

Look what has just arrived at Adam Norris Dental Laboratory.

Disinfectant spray for sports mouth guards.

Mouth guards are often kept in boot or kit bags and only come out just before use.  Many are dropped on the floor with the potential for nasty germs to spread.  Aqueos sport gum shield disinfectant is mint flavoured and kills 99.99% of bacteria, fungi and viruses.

 

Sports Guards

Rugby session is just starting, children and adults all need securely fitting sports guards to protect their teeth.

Many people buy home made sports guard kits for their local sports shops.  In many cases the finished guard is loose fitting and regularly falls out whilst playing their choosen sports, making it hard to speak to fellow team mates and more difficult to breath.  Here at Adam Norris Dental Laboratory we make custom fitted sports guard for all sports including rugby, hockey and boxing which are thicker than the shop bought kits and are a custom fit. In short, our sports guard offer much better protection for your teeth.

The process is very simple, we take an impression of your mouth, then pressure form the mouth guard to fit your teeth perfectly.  Our sports guards are available in many different colours.  You will have your finished sports guard within the week!

summer smile

The summer holidays are fast approaching and everyone is getting ready, dragging suitcases down from the loft and washing all their summer clothes in anticipation of some fun in the sun, but have you cleaned your teeth.

Here at Adam Norris Dental Laboratory we can clean your dentures whilst you wait to allow you to go away with a beautiful bright smile.

Scale build-up occurs naturally in the mouth and can be very tough to remove with a tooth brush.

We can also give advice on how to clean your denture in future.

Testimonal – June ’17

We have had a brilliant year so far, here at Adam Norris Dental Laboratory.  We have met and helped so many lovely new patients and it seems they have been very happy with the service we have provide them too, as we have just received this lovely testimonial through the post today;

“Just to say thank you very much for making such a super job of my dentures. After many months of being extremely uncomfortable with the old ones forever falling down, even though tubes of fixture being used.  While eating dinner they were always falling onto my plate, laughing up at me!!

Wife was not amused!!

Once again thank you. I can now munch away with no problems at all.”

If we could help you to munch more comfortably, please contact us on 01245 344334 and book yourself an appointment.

Flexible Dentures

Today at Adam Norris Dental Laboratory Ltd we have completed another successful flexible denture.

If your partial dentures are loose or uncomfortable to wear, especially while chewing foods, here at Adam Norris Dental Laboratory we can offer you a more comfortable and more rewarding solution. If you find that you cannot accommodate a normal acrylic partial denture, a Flexible Partial Denture is a possible alternative. This is because Flexible Dentures adjust easily to any irregularities in the mouth to provide a fit that is more comfortable and effective.

In certain cases, Flexible Partial Dentures can fit with the parts of your mouth that conventional hard acrylic bases cannot. By working closely with the unique shape of your mouth, we will help you achieve a well fitting, stable denture. What is more, the pink portion of your denture will flex with your jaw as you chew so you can enjoy new confidence when you eat.

Flexible Dentures are durable, comfortable and light-weight, Flexible Dentures are made from a translucent flexible nylon material that picks up underlying gum colours, making them almost impossible to detect in the mouth. With a Flexible Denture, no metal clasps or clips are needed on tooth surfaces which will improve the overall appearance of your mouth.

Look us up on facebook and see how flexible this denture is.

I can’t keep my dentures clean!

img_20161112_115739At Adam Norris Dental Laboratory we found we had the same people returning regularly asking us to clean their dentures.  Sometimes the cleaning was required due to being a smoker, sometimes due to drinking a lot of coffee or red wine, and sometimes just due to a natural plaque build up.  We are always happy to clean dentures, but we know its not always very convenient for patients.

What we are now able to offer, in addition to our in-lab cleaning service, is a new cleaning solution which you can use at home.  The home cleaning solution is called “Renew”, this cleaner does not need to be used daily, in fact only when you feel the dentures need them, it will remove tobacco, coffee and wine stains as well as plaque and tartar build up.

This product is not available at pharmacies or chemists, in fact, we are the only stockists in the Chelmsford area.  We have free samples of the product available in our clinic, pop in and try some.

First aid at work

At Adam Norris Dental Laboratory they like to be able to offer the best service and products to their patients.  One way they do this is by regularly updating their knowledge, skills and safety awareness.

On Thursday the 28th of July, Adam Norris and his small team went on an exclusive staff training day to a health and social care training academy.

On this course they all updated their knowledge of first aid in the work place.

This course explained things such as, how to assess an incident, through to how to treat shock, chocking and sudden cardiac arrest.

 The course main task was to explain, and show the use of, a defibrillator and how to give correct CPR as part of a team. This course gave them a personal look at how to conduct CPR within the space of Adam Norris Dental Laboratory, should they ever need to use it.

Hoilday dentures

Have you ever been without a set of teeth and two days from land ?

Well our patient this week has. He was having a lovely time on holiday until his dentures broke. Whilst there is never a good to break your dentures, being on board a cruise ship that doesn’t dock for two days real bad luck.

Unfortunately even when this patient reached dry land, he was still unable to get his dentures repaired.  He was so pleased when he got home phoned Adam Norris Dental Laboratory and was told that he could come to us straight away and we would take a look at it for him.

The patient told us all about the problems that his broken denture caused.

We repaired the dentures and we reassured the patient that he wouldn’t have to worry about this happening again because we could make him a spare set of dentures.

The patient said he didn’t have time to go though the process of making a new set of dentures again and that he like his old denture as they fitted like old shoes .

After explaining to him the simple process of making copy dentures he said this was a great idea . We finished making his new copy dentures and he was happy in the knowledge that he will always have a backup dentures if ever he needs them.

Tooth colour clasps

This week a patient from Chelmsford came to us because although their dentures fitted comfortably in the mouth they were unable to retain it in place as it kept dropping down.

After a short appointment with our Clinical Dental Technician, it was suggested that perhaps clasps could be the answer. The patient agreed that this was a good idea but unhappy with the idea of metal clasps being visible as they would perhaps highlight the fact that they were wearing dentures.

We explained to the patient how at Adam Norris Dental Laboratory how we have the skill and equipment to add tooth coloured clasps to a denture which work in the same way as a metal clasp but are much less visible in the patients mouth.

When the patient left with her newly adjusted dentures, they looked and fitted no differently in the mouth than they did before, however, the dentures now hold in the mouth perfectly and no long drops whilst talking.
