Dentures

If you are missing most or all your teeth, dentures might be the most viable teeth replacement option for you. Here at Dentist Coorparoo, we design dentures in Coorparoo to look like natural teeth and fit them within your mouth, restoring your smile and helping you with routine lifestyle activities like eating and talking.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are false removable teeth that you wear to replace missing teeth. They are generally made of acrylic and are designed to match the appearance of natural teeth, offering you a natural-looking solution to replacing missing teeth.

Types of Dentures

There are various types of dentures available. You can either get partial dentures or full dentures. This decision depends on the number of teeth you need to replace. Whatever the type you choose to get, current dentures promise to offer you more comfort and a more natural-looking appearance than ever before.

full denture

Full Dentures

Also known as complete dentures, full dentures are meant to replace all the teeth in your upper or lower jawline. They are more suitable for patients who are missing most or all their natural teeth.

partial denture

Partial Dentures

On the other hand, partial dentures fill the spaces left behind by a few missing teeth. They are attached to the neighbouring natural teeth using precision attachments or metal clasps. This design allows them to offer you better stability and retention compared to complete dentures.
We recommend partial dentures in Coorparoo for patients who have lost one or a few natural teeth and wish to fill the gap or gaps left behind.

immediate denture

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures can either be partial or complete dentures that we fit you right at the time when you get your teeth removed. This enables you to have replacement teeth with no wait time after the removal of teeth. So you do not have to spend any time with gaps between your teeth. The immediate dentures do get a bit loose after a few months and at that stage need a reline.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are mainly two types of dentures: complete (full) and partial. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Both types can be made to look like your natural teeth, enhancing your smile and improving your oral health.

Adjusting to dentures can take a few weeks to a few months. Initially, they may feel odd or uncomfortable while your mouth muscles and tissues adapt to holding them in place. It’s common to experience minor irritation or increased saliva flow during this period, but these issues typically diminish as you become accustomed to your new dentures.

Yes, but it may take some time to adjust to eating with dentures. Start with soft foods cut into small pieces and chew slowly using both sides of your mouth. Gradually, as you become more comfortable, you can introduce more solid foods. Avoid sticky or hard foods that may dislodge your dentures.

Dentures require daily care to keep them clean, free from stains, and looking their best. Rinse your dentures after eating, brush them daily with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive cleaner, and soak them overnight in a denture-cleaning solution. Always rinse them before putting them back in your mouth. Remember, even with full dentures, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene on your gums and tongue.

Initially, you may notice some changes in your speech, such as a slight lisping. This is common and usually temporary. Practicing reading aloud and repeating tricky words can help your tongue and mouth adapt to the dentures more quickly.

Dentures can wear out or become ill-fitting over time due to natural changes in your mouth. On average, dentures may need to be replaced every 5 to 7 years. Regular dental check-ups are important to ensure a proper fit and to make adjustments as needed.

The Advantages of Dentures

There are several advantages dentures promise to offer you, depending on the type of dentures you choose to get. The partial dentures prevent teeth from shifting into the space where teeth are missing. Missing teeth can lead to drooping facial muscles, which can cause you to appear older than you are. Dentures offer you the support your natural teeth give you, helping you appear youthful. They can help you feel and look your best and allow you to enjoy the confidence a beautiful smile gives.
