Dentures are a fact of life for people of all ages. A wide variety of oral health issues can cause the need for your dentist to explore fitting you with dentures to improve your quality of life. 

If a dentist is considering recommending dentures to you and a family member, you will want to get the best information you can possibly find in advance. Being armed with information enables you to both make informed decisions and converse with the dentist about the best-suited denture solution. In this article, we’ll give you an overview of some of the most common denture solutions your dentist may suggest.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are a type of temporary denture, designed to be fitted immediately after a tooth has been removed. Immediate dentures are not a permanent solution to the missing tooth. They are designed to be fitted during the removal process or very shortly thereafter causing minimal amount of discomfort and inconvenience while your gum is healing enough for a permanent denture solution. Immediate dentures look and feel natural, enabling you to eat and talk normally during the healing process. If you are considering immediate dentures, it is important that you discuss it with your dentist before the tooth removal as a cast will need to be taken beforehand.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are likely the kind most people are familiar with. These style of dentures are designed to replace all the teeth in the upper and lower part of the mouth. Complete dentures are manufactured from high-quality and strength acrylic, held in place by suction, and available in a range of different colours and styles to fit your mouth perfectly.

As an optional extra, cosmetic complete dentures go a step further in the design, tinting, and staining, making them look flawlessly like your original teeth.

Implant Supported Dentures

Most dentures are held in place by their carefully crafted design and suction. Implant supported dentures are different in that they are secured into your mouth by implants inserted directly into the jaw bone. Implant supported dentures offer unparalleled comfort, support, and stability making them an ideal solution for long-term denture needs.

Digital Dentures

Digital dentures are the future of denture technology. Unlike the other entries on this list digital dentures aren’t a specific type of dentures, but are instead a technology that is at the leading edge of all denture manufacturing. The unique difference with digital dentures is the digital scanning technology used to create a precise and detailed model of your mouth that can be used as the template to manufacture your denture is a way that will look and feel more natural than ever before.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are the best solution when you only need a denture to replace a few teeth, leaving your remaining teeth intact. Partial dentures are designed and secured around your existing teeth, secured into the mouth by a retainer or clasp. This style of denture is the perfect solution to give you comfort and confidence back when you have suffered the loss of a tooth.

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures are very similar to standard partial dentures, designed to replace only a few missing teeth, and provide you with greater comfort, style, and confidence. This style of denture allows the denture to be removed easily for cleaning and comfort e.g. in the evenings or while sleeping, but still comes with all the same benefits and quality assurances as the other dentures on this list.

Denture technology has progressed in leaps and bounds. Long gone are the days of obvious and uncomfortable dentures that are the burden of every morning. Every denture is completely unique, tailored specifically to you. Your dentist will carefully model and design your denture to your mouth, making them the perfect fit. While your dentist will select the best denture solution for you, being aware and knowledgeable of the options available will allow you better understand your choices and discuss your needs.

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

Faqs

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
