Dentures Explained

Dentures are prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth. They are a cost-effective option for people who have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, or an accident or trauma. Dentures can be temporary or permanent and are designed to look like your natural teeth.

Types of Dentures

There are three main types of dentures. Your dentist will go through the options with you on your appointment to decide which option is best for you.

Full or complete dentures

This device is used to replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaws, or both. Therefore, they may be suitable for people who have lost all their teeth. They are custom made and provide the perfect fit to your individual gums. In addition, full or complete dentures provide support to your lips, cheeks, and overall jawline.

Partial dentures

A partial denture attaches to your natural teeth to fill gaps left by missing teeth. Therefore, they might be suitable for people who have only lost a small number of teeth. Depending on your teeth, your dentist may recommend some dental crowns on your natural teeth to provide more support and improve the fit of the denture.

Implant retained dentures

This type of denture is a full denture which is secured by dental implants. Therefore, they do not move like a traditional denture. Usually you will need to have at least four to eight dental implants to stabilise this form of denture.

Caring for Dentures

A denture requires just as much care as natural teeth do. It is important to follow a cleaning process to ensure the longevity, functionality, and appearance of your dentures. This process follows the below steps:

Firstly, brush each morning and evening with a soft toothbrush. This helps to remove food particles and stains from the day. There is no need to use toothpaste.

Secondly, soak your dentures each day using a specialised denture cleaning solution. This will remove any stubborn stains and bacteria.

Thirdly, remove your dentures at night-time whilst sleeping. This allows your gums to heal from any initial discomfort and avoid infections. Make sure to store them in a safe, dry place.

Lastly, even with dentures it is imperative that you keep up with your regular dental visits. This allows you to let your dentist or prosthetist know of any concerns or issues that you may have. In addition, you should also have regular check-ups.

How Long Do Dentures Last?

The lifespan of dentures is normally five to eight years. This is based on them being cared for adequately and cleaned regularly.

Over time, our mouth may change shape, especially as we get older, hence why your device may need to be re-made and fitted during this timeframe.

Treatment Process for Dentures

The process and timeframe of having dentures fitted and made will vary depending on the type of denture and changes in their fit.

During your initial appointment or consultation with your dentist they will determine what type of denture is suitable to your individual needs.

Following this, you will have mouth impressions taken and your dentist will carry out a series of assessments regarding shape, size and shade – especially if you have any existing teeth to ensure your denture matches and is aesthetically pleasing.

After your impressions are taken you will receive a try-in version of the denture to assess the fit and aesthetics. Moving forward, changes will be made until a final version is agreed and you are completely satisfied with the result.

Lastly, you will receive your completed denture device!

Cost of Dentures

Dentures may vary in cost, depending on the type of denture chosen and if dental work is required prior to the denture being fitted.

Once you meet with your dentist and agree on a treatment plan you will be able to confirm the cost and what is involved moving forward.

In addition, if you are a member of a health fund, some of the cost may be covered depending on your policy and dental cover. Once you have details of your treatment, your health fund will be able to provide accurate costs.
