Full & Partial Dentures

South of Adelaide

What are dentures?

A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth.

They are made to closely resemble natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

They allow you to go about your day-to-day routine without anyone even knowing. 

Denture types

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures.

Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Dentures are very durable appliances but may need to be remade, repaired, or relined in the years to come.

To book an appointment please call (08) 8381 4113.

A Complete Guide to Full & Partial Dentures

Benefits, Process & After Care

Improved Oral Functionality

Dentures are not just about aesthetics; they play a crucial role in your oral health. By replacing missing teeth, dentures enable proper chewing and biting, facilitating better digestion and overall health. This restoration of oral functionality can significantly improve your quality of life, allowing you to enjoy a wider variety of foods and ensuring that your nutrition does not suffer due to dental issues.

Enhanced Appearance

One of the most immediate benefits of dentures is the transformation they can bring to your smile. Dentures are designed to closely mimic the look of natural teeth, supporting the facial muscles and preventing the facial sagging that often occurs with tooth loss. This can dramatically enhance your appearance and restore the natural shape of your face.

Boosted Self-Esteem

The impact of a full and healthy smile on one’s confidence cannot be overstated. Dentures offer a solution to fill the gaps in your smile, which can significantly boost your self-esteem. Knowing your smile looks great can make you feel more confident in social and professional situations.

Initial Consultation

Your denture journey begins with an initial consultation, where your dentist evaluates your oral health and discusses your expectations. This step is crucial for designing dentures that fit comfortably and look natural.

Impressions and Fittings

After the consultation, your dentist will take precise impressions of your mouth, which are used to create dentures that fit snugly over your gums. You may have several fittings to ensure the dentures are comfortable and functional, with adjustments made as needed.

Adjustments and Follow-up

Getting used to dentures can take some time, and adjustments may be required to achieve the perfect fit. Follow-up visits are essential for addressing any discomfort and making adjustments to ensure your dentures function as intended.

Daily Cleaning

Proper care is essential to extend the life of your dentures and maintain oral hygiene. Daily cleaning with a soft brush and non-abrasive cleaner can prevent plaque buildup and stains, keeping your dentures looking their best.

Handling and Storage

Dentures are delicate and should be handled with care. When not in use, they should be stored in water or a denture-cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out and losing their shape.

Regular Dental Visits

Even if you wear dentures, regular check-ups with your dentist are crucial. These visits allow for professional cleaning of your dentures, adjustments for fit, and examinations of your oral health to prevent any underlying issues from developing.

Frequently asked questions about Full & Partial Dentures in Adelaide

There are two types of dentures.

  1. The first is known as ‘complete dentures ‘or ‘full dentures’ and is used in cases where all teeth need replacing. As the name suggests, the prosthetic is for the entire set of teeth. 
  2. The other is ‘partial dentures’ where only some of the teeth need replacing.

Cleaning your dentures is important.

You should clean your dentures every day to mitigate plaque build-up.

Simply use a soft toothbrush with water and soap – or denture paste – over a sink to clean it.

On top of this, you should give them a deep rinse using effervescent tablets every now and then as well.

Don’t forget to brush your tongue, palate and gums morning and night as well before you put your dentures back in.

If there is a major build-up of plaque, then you should dip your dentures into a glass full of water with a small amount of vinegar.

You should avoid using regular toothpaste on your dentures as the chemicals contained within them are not meant to be used on such prosthetics.

As a result, this can damage the dentures. If your dentures are damaged or break, then do not attempt to repair them yourself give your local dentist a call asap.

Yes, you are able to sleep with your dentures in.

However, all dentists will recommend that you take them out while you sleep to give your jaw a chance to relax.

During this time you can store them in a glass of water, or use this chance to clean them using effervescent tablets.

Increased saliva production is one thing that you will notice as well as altered speech. 

It will take some time to get used to having prosthetic teeth so you’ll have to be patient as initial pains and sores will arise. 

Try to stay away from overly-solid and hot foods, as your tissue heals and becomes acquainted with your dentures. 

A good way to tackle new dentures is to cut your food into smaller pieces making them easier to chew and consume.
