QUALITY DENTURES

If you have missing teeth or you need to have teeth extracted, dentures can be the most affordable option for tooth replacement. Dentures may be attached in the mouth by suction or supported by dental implants for extra stability and comfort. 

What Are Dentures?

If you’ve lost your natural teeth from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, dentures can replace your missing teeth and give you a fuller smile. In some people, dentures may also help to prevent sagging of the cheeks and facial muscles and problems with eating or speaking.

Our experienced Prosthetist can custom-design high-quality dentures that fit comfortably and look just like natural teeth. Call (08) 9495 7999 to book a consultation and find out more.

Pros of Dentures

  • Dentures can replace as many or as few teeth as needed
  • Dont involve surgery
  • Quicker treatment time
  • More affordable than dental implants and dental bridges
  • Cheaper to maintain and repair than dental implants

Cons of Dentures

  • Lower dentures offer very little suction and can dislodge easily
  • Upper dentures cover the entire palate and limit the ability to taste food
  • Dentures cause jaw bone shrinkage over time
  • Dentures require relining or replacing every 2 to 5 years
  • Can rub on gums causing pressure sores
  • Can damage adjacent teeth
  • Have to be removed for cleaning and left out at night

Types of Dentures

  • Full dentures – replace a whole arch of teeth in the upper or lower jaw, attached to the gums by suction

  • Partial dentures – replace a single tooth or several teeth, attached to remaining teeth on either side by clasps

  • Implant-retained dentures – full or partial dentures that are supported by dental implants

Custom-made Dentures by our Prosthetist

If you decide to have dentures at Kelmscott Dental, our dentists will first take care of any extractions that may be needed to remove unhealthy teeth you want to replace. We recommend waiting a few months for your gums to heal and swelling to reduce before your custom dentures are made, but we can provide temporary dentures to wear in the meantime. These may need regular adjustments over time as the shape of your mouth changes.

When you’re ready for dentures, our skilled prosthetist will take impressions of your teeth. Impressions are used to design dentures that precisely fit your mouth and have a natural appearance. Once these have been manufactured, we’ll arrange a fitting appointment where we’ll check that your dentures fit well and make any minor adjustments needed.

What to Expect After Getting Dentures

Dentures usually take more getting used to than other teeth replacement options. It’s normal to feel discomfort for a few weeks or longer as your mouth adjusts to the feeling of dentures, especially when eating and speaking, but this should soon become familiar. If your dentures continue to cause pain or irritation, they may need to be adjusted. Contact our dentists for any adjustments, relines or repairs.

Taking Care of Your Dentures

Taking good care of your dentures is important for helping them to last as long as possible without damage or deterioration. You can do this by cleanig them daily with a denture cleaning solution and also maintaining good oral hygiene to prevent problems developing with remaining teeth and gums.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the alternatives to dentures?

If you would prefer a more stable and permanent alternative to dentures, the options are dental implants or a dental bridge.

Dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw and can support a bridge or dentures. A bridge is a non-surgical option that can replace one or more teeth in a row, supported by the teeth on either side.
