Do you have a missing tooth or two? Are you looking to replace your teeth or fill in the gap?

You must have a budget in mind. If you are clueless about where to start and how to get the right deal for the kind of dentures you need, we’ve got you covered.

By the end of this piece, you’ll have all the details about dentures to make an informed decision.

Let’s start with the basics, shall we?

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are artificial teeth used as a replacement for missing teeth. These are removable, often customised, and come in different types.

You may need them for different purposes – dentures serve as an aid in chewing, speaking, and helping you improve your facial features in terms of aesthetics.

While dentures may not support all types of meals, they do make eating a relatively pleasant experience. Partial dentures can divide the load on your natural teeth and keep them in place. They help you maintain better oral health as well.

Apart from that, there are certain sounds you cannot pronounce without teeth – such ‘v,’ ‘f’ or ‘s’ sounds. You may need dentures to help you with speech to save you from embarrassment and misunderstandings.

Your teeth support your facial muscles. When you lose teeth, your facial features might sink, and it can make you look older. Having the right dentures can make you look youthful and improve the outlook of your face. Not to mention, your smile becomes attractive and contagious.

Loss of a few teeth shouldn’t discourage you from having exquisite meals. Nor should it make you self-conscious and affect your social standing. You deserve to smile as bright as you want and be loved for it. That is precisely what dentures help you with.

Dentures come in various types and shapes to meet different dental needs. You might want to check what fits your set of requirements before you decide. Let’s go over some types of dentures and their purpose.

Available Types of Dentures

Each of these types of dentures needs to be further customised to fit the size, shape, location of replacement teeth, and other criteria. For now, we will go over the types you can find when you’re looking for dentures.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are full-mouth fittings that replace your entire set of teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. They come in handy if you’ve lost all of your teeth.

Complete dentures are further divided into two categories – traditional and cosmetic.

Traditional Dentures

Traditional Dentures are strong acrylic teeth bonded with a heat-cured acrylic base. They come in various colours, styles and can last for years.

Cosmetic Dentures

Cosmetic Dentures are more aesthetic and natural in looks. They are custom-made to match your personality and fit perfectly with your looks.

Cosmetic Complete Dentures are often better looking like the colours are correctly chosen, size is precisely measured, and shape is carefully carved out for you.

Complete Dentures are held in place using denture adhesives, clips, suction or implant supports.

Partial Dentures

If you have some of your teeth intact and you just need a few teeth replacements, then Partial Dentures might be the right choice for you. Partial dentures are meant to replace one or more of your teeth while fitting in perfectly with the rest of your natural teeth.

Partial Dentures are kept in place by either special retainers or clasps. They may also use the support of your natural teeth while filling in the gap. Partial Dentures have to be customised according to the location of your missing teeth along with other factors.

They come in different types and are made with different materials. Types such as Flexible, Clear Clasp, Acrylic, and Chrome or Metal cater to different comfort and aesthetic needs.

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable Partial Dentures are made with a removable base that matches the colour of your gums. This type of dentures is made to adjust with, and use the support of your natural teeth, all the while, making it easier to remove and put them back on.

The colour of the base makes these dentures look natural, and it blends right in with your natural teeth.

Immediate Dentures

When you get your teeth removed or extracted, you are in urgent need of dentures most of the time. Since your gums need immediate protection to heal properly, you will need Immediate Dentures.

Immediate Dentures are partial or complete dentures that are fixed immediately after the extraction of teeth. After removal of teeth, your gums are often sore, swollen and wounded. Immediate Dentures are designed to fit and be gentle on sore gums.

Immediate Dentures need to be designed and prepared before extraction to be of use when needed. And they need to be removed for a particular part of the day or night to allow the gums to breathe.

Once your gums have healed, your size may change, and immediate dentures might start to feel loose. That calls for a visit to your dentist to have them replaced or relined.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-Supported Dentures are kept in place through implants in your jaws. These are easy to put in and remove, and they hold their places rather firmly.

Metal implants are anchored to your jaw, which then helps these dentures lock in their place. Implant-Supported Dentures look more natural and fit perfectly. Since they are easier to place and remove, these dentures save you a lot of energy.

Digital Dentures

Digital Dentures are digitally manufactured custom-made dentures that are built with maximum precision. There’s hardly any chance of human error in this fully automated process. Making digital dentures involves:

  • Scanning
  • Designing
  • Basal Adaptation
  • Milling
  • Connecting
  • Check

You can easily understand the process of making digital dentures.

Repairs and Relines

Your gums don’t always stay the same. Your size varies and changes depending on your health, age, and certain other factors. Gum ridges and bones can shrink, causing a change in the shape and size of your mouth.

You don’t always have to buy new dentures when the current ones no longer fit. The base of your dentures can be relined, and they can be altered to fit your new size.

Your dentures face a lot of wear and tear over the years. While in some cases, they need to be replaced, in many cases, they just need a bit of repair, and they’re good to go. You can reach out to Aesthetic Denture Clinic or any similar dental prosthetist to have it done.

Average Cost of Dentures in Australia

The cost of dentures varies on a case by case basis. The average price of dentures is different for each part of Australia.

While there are no guarantees on how much you will have to spend in your case, average prices for full, upper, and lower dentures range from $2200 up to $3870 for regular patients.

Dentist vs. Dental Prosthetist

People often think a dentist and a dental prosthetist are the same. Therefore, they should deliver the same results. This mistake can compromise the quality of services they receive. So let’s go over who these two are.

What Does A Dentist Do?

A dentist is a professional who deals with all teeth related diseases and problems. Dentists diagnose and treat diseases, as well as prescribe medicine for other oral issues. The dentist is more of an umbrella term for a doctor dealing with all sorts of dental and oral problems.

What Does A Dental Prosthetist Do?

Dental Prosthetist or Prosthodontist is a person specialised in surgery, removal, and replacement of teeth. Their knowledge of dentures is more in-depth and technical as compared to the average dentist.

In short, they are specialised in the field of Prosthodontics. Getting dentures from a dental prosthetist ensures you receive comparatively high-quality treatment.

Quality of Materials

Quality of materials plays an essential role in determining whether your oral health will improve or decline after getting the dentures. While preferences and compatibility vary significantly on a case by case basis, there still are certain factors to check.

To give you an overview, let’s discuss some essential aspects.

Metal vs. Plastic or Acrylic

Some dentures have metallic retainers, clips and clasps to hold their place. It gives them durability, strength, and firmness. They hold their positions well. But some metals can cause allergy to some patients.

If you aim to avoid any potential allergic reactions, acrylic is a good alternative. Dentures made out of acrylic prevent allergies and are comparatively more comfortable. They add to the aesthetic aspect of the replacement as well since metallic bases don’t always look good.

Expensive Vs. Cheap

Excellent quality comes at a price. Having a budget is understandable, but compromising long-term comfort and wellbeing for a few dollars can backfire since you might end up spending on other treatments.

If you’re going with a metallic denture, going for cheaper options can be risky. Cheap metal in dentures can be a mix of alloys you might be allergic to. On the other hand, getting low-priced acrylic based dentures can cause soreness as they might not be the right size.

Whatever you choose, be sure to research and examine the materials thoroughly. A few dollars here can save a lot of expenses and trouble in the future.

Common Queries and Concerns

There are a lot of frequently asked questions and concerns regarding dentures. We’ll address some of these, so you don’t get lost along the way.

Does Medicare Cover Dentures?

Medicare covers expenses that are deemed crucial to your wellbeing; however, it does not cover any cosmetic treatments or surgeries meant to enhance your aesthetic appearance. In the case of dentures, Medicare covers your tooth extraction expenses, provided they are necessary for your wellbeing. But Medicare will not cover the costs of dentures or tooth replacement on your treatment once your teeth are removed. In short, Medicare may cover a part of this process, depending on your case.

Are there Private Health Insurance Options for Dentures?

There are private health insurance options that cover dentures and other dental treatments as a part of their service, for example, HIF Dental Cover. However, you must make sure you’re not overpaying an insurance provider just to get dentures covered. Sometimes, insurance can be more expensive than the cost of the procedure itself. Do your research. Analyse the expenses and compare them with the benefits you’re getting. If you have private insurance already, you can check if they cover dentures in dental care or not.

What to Consider If I Get My Dentures Overseas?

People often go abroad to get medical treatments. Dental tourism is often considered more feasible. Other times you are living overseas, and you may need guidance.Three most important questions to ask before getting treatment overseas are:

  • Have you thought about your treatment?

Have you done all the research on the specific treatment you need? Do you know the entire process? Do you know how it is done in the country you’re getting treatment in?

It is better to be sure of what you are going to get when you step into the clinic.

  • Are you aware of all the risks involved?

You might not be well aware of the dynamics and practices of the medical industry in a particular country.  It involves a great deal of risk to trust a foreign practitioner for your body and health. You need to know what could go wrong.

  • Do you have a back-up plan?

Just knowing what could go wrong may not be enough. You should know how you can counter it or what you can do in case anything goes wrong.

Keeping these questions in mind will help you make a better decision in the choice of clinics in a particular region as well.

Getting dentures can have its costs, which is worth it in the long run. Some of your costs may be covered by Medicare, depending on your case, while your private insurance might cover a significant part or all of it.

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

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.
