What Are Digital Dentures?

Digital dentures are a marvel of the modern world. They are created from start-to-finish using digital technology. Unlike traditional dentures, digital dentures allow for more flexibility in design and have a better lifespan, they are created entirely digitally, meaning they can be modified more easily by your denture clinic, should there be any problems with your immediate dentures. 

If you’re venturing into the denture world for the very first time, you should know that you have options beyond the traditional set of dentures. Whether you need partial dentures, or a set of full dentures, digital dentures provide you with an option that didn’t exist five years ago. 

However, before you make a decision about which route to go with your own dentures, here is some information about digital dentures to help you make an informed choice. 

How Are Digital Dentures Made? 

Digital dentures are created using a Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) program, which provides a 3D model of the dentures on a screen, allowing the manufacturers of your dentures to make micro adjustments to make sure that your dentures won’t be in need of emergency denture repair. 

When all of the relevant measures are input into the Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) system and then, once the dentist has made sure that the measurements are correct, the dentures are then 3D printed using acrylic as a base. 

This single pair of dentures can be recreated and fine-tuned, as dentists will often print a try-in pair to see if they’re a fit for your mouth before printing your immediate dentures. 

What Are Some Benefits of Digital Dentures? 

  •       Customisability with low cost factors – one of the main benefits of digitally printed dentures is that they are a lower manufacturing cost than traditional dentures, with more customisability. The software allows your dentist to fine-tune your dentures at a fraction of the denture cost.
  •       Faster production time – one of the main drawbacks of traditional dentures is that you sometimes have to wait weeks for your dentures to come in. This is not the case with digital dentures, as they can be printed in a matter of days, once the design has been finalised with the proper measurements.
  •       Fewer repairs needed – as these dentures are made from acrylic, they are less susceptible to breakage, reducing the amount of denture repair that is necessary. However, should they need to be repaired, it is simply a matter of reprinting the denture file, making replacement a much easier option.
  •       Less dentistry trips – traditional dentures sometimes require multiple visits to the dentist for extractions, fittings, mouldings, etc. However, digital dentures only require that you visit the dentist to get your mouth scanned for the 3D model to be made, then a second visit for the try-in model fitting, then a third to pick up your final pair.
  •       Cost-effectiveness – given that digital dentures require fewer visits to the dentist, you can save some cash by not having to pay out of pocket for as many visits. Additionally, digital dentures do not require frequent adjustments, meaning less time spent in that dreaded dentist chair.
  •       Patients that use digital dentures mostly report a more comfortable fit, exhibit a better bite than those that wear traditional dentures, and they have saved money on dentistry bills since making the switch to digital.

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.
