Knowing the whole process when you’re getting new dentures helps fade your concerns, makes you more familiar with the procedure, and encourages you to get back your natural smile.

 

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable false teeth used to replace missing teeth. They are typically made of acrylic or metal and can be used for both upper and lower jaw arch restoration.

 

 

Complete dentures

Dentures that replace all your teeth are known as complete dentures, and they rest on the gums. Dental implants can enhance the stability of these dentures. Read more about it. 

 

Partial dentures

Dentures that replace some of the teeth are known as partial dentures. They fill in the gaps and cover the gums replacing the missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to stabilise partial dentures as well.

 

Dentures Procedure

The process of getting new dentures is relatively simple. Your prosthetist will first take measurements and impressions of your mouth to create a model of your teeth and gums. This process is done through digital dentures technology to make the fitting surface more accurate for a better fit in your mouth. During the process, your prosthetist may also discuss any additional procedures that may need to be completed prior to receiving dentures (such as extractions).

Once this process has been completed, the model is sent to a dental laboratory to create your personalised denture. Depending on your needs and preferences, you may opt for traditional full or partial dentures or implant-supported dentures.

When your dentures are ready, you will return to your prosthetist’s office for a fitting. During this process, your denture may be adjusted to ensure a good fit in your mouth, and any necessary changes will be made.

Once the dentures are deemed successful by both you and your prosthetist, they will be permanently bonded into place with denture adhesive. Alternatively, implant-supported dentures typically last much longer than traditional adhesives. Go to this link to read more about the procedure.

 

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are the best solution that saves you from walking around with missing teeth. Your prosthetist can fabricate them before the tooth extraction process. This ensures that once the teeth have been removed and the healing process has finished, immediate dentures can be put in place on the same day.

Dental Implant BrisbaneImmediate dentures are usually temporary dentures. Because during the healing process, your gum will start to shrink, and your dentures will become looser. So, they will require more frequent adjustments until your mouth is completely healed, and a permanent reline will be recommended.

After getting your dentures applied, you should expect some discomfort at first as you adjust to wearing them. So, in the first few weeks, your prosthetist may advise you to wear them all the time, even while sleeping. After your mouth gets used to it, you’ll be able to remove them before going to bed. That allows your gums to rest and improves your oral health. 

 

How to take care of your dentures?

With proper care and maintenance, these prosthetics can last up to five years before needing replacement.

  1. Always clean your dentures over a water bowl to prevent them from falling and breaking.
  2. Brush your dentures with a non-abrasive denture cleaner, and soak them in a denture-cleaning solution daily.
  3. If you notice any stains, get them cleaned by your prosthetist.

Getting dentures can be a life-changing experience and an essential step in rebuilding your smile. With the proper support, you can look forward to stronger and healthier natural teeth in no time.  If you have any questions regarding the process of getting dentures or would like to discuss further options available, do not hesitate to reach out and contact us for more information. We will be happy to help!
