Keep That Smile Looking Stunning
Dentures are removable dental prostheses used to replace missing teeth. They are held in place by the soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Traditional dentures can be taken out.
There are numerous denture designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto natural teeth or dental implants.
Types of Dentures
Partial dentures —are designed to fill the gap left by missing teeth. If you miss a few teeth, they can be extracted as needed to boost your confidence.
Complete dentures — are worn when all teeth in one jaw are missing. These are usually made of plastic.
If you have problems with your complete dentures, your dentist may recommend overdentures.
Overdentures are removable prosthetics that sit on your natural teeth or dental implants.
If you still have natural teeth, they will be modified to fit the denture. If no teeth remain, tiny implants are placed in the jawbone.
The overdenture is held in place by either natural teeth or dental implants.
Advantages of Dentures
- Increase your self-esteem.
- The pronunciation will be significantly improved, allowing you to speak more effectively.
- Enhance facial aesthetics by supporting facial tissues. Wearing complete dentures to replace missing teeth supports the cheeks and lips and corrects the appearance of a collapsed face caused by tooth loss.
- Keep your face from appearing ‘collapsed,’ as these help your gums and cheeks.
- Improve your ability to chew your food properly.
- You will not have to eat only soft foods because you can retain fully functional teeth due to dentures. You will be able to consume a balanced diet that contains foods from all food groups, including meat, chicken, and fish, as a result.
- Prevent having to deal with dental caries again. You will also avoid tooth decay, gum disease, receding gums, and bacterial infections between teeth.
Dentures made of a plate, metal, or acrylic cover your jaw’s soft tissues and bone.
Ceramic or acrylic false teeth are affixed to the plate that resembles any natural teeth.
Typically, making dentures involves several appointments spaced out over a few weeks.
After your Campbelltown dentist has determined which style of denture is best for you, take the following actions:
- Create impressions and moulds, and measure the jaw.
- Create plastic patterns, wax forms, or models that mimic the dentures’ position and shape. Prior to the final denture being cast, you will “try in” this model and have its colour, shape, and fit evaluated.
- Cast a final denture.
- As required, adjustments will be made.
Looking After Your Dentures
Dental plaque accumulation on false teeth can lead to complications like bone loss, bad breath, and inflammation of the mouth’s soft tissue lining.
Maintaining your dentures properly is essential to avoiding these:
- To gently remove plaque at night, clean the dentures with a soft brush. A small washcloth should be used to clean removable dentures while being brushed over the sink. The washcloth acts as a cushion if they drop. Dentures frequently break when dropped onto the floor, the counter, or the sink.
- They can also be soaked in water and white vinegar to remove calculus or prevent it from forming.
- Put them in a denture-cleaning solution and let them soak all night. Then, in the morning, give them another brushing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are dentures the right option for me?
We can make partial dentures if you are missing a few teeth, or if you have an entire arch of teeth missing, we can make complete dentures.
Dentures can be taken out and cleaned easily. As with natural teeth, the fake teeth will eventually become discoloured, so maintaining your dentures properly will require good oral hygiene at home and routine dental exams.
Is it painful to wear dentures?
It’s common to feel minor irritation after getting your dentures fitted, but this should subside as your mouth gets used to them.
Can I normally eat with dentures?
It takes most patients a short while to get used to dentures because they need to learn how to use them properly.
After some time, you ought to be able to eat normally, but it might take longer to get used to eating trickier or stickier foods.
