Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices made to replace missing teeth. It’s not uncommon to need full dentures if you have suffered an illness, have a genetic or gum disease, tooth decay or severe wear and tear on your teeth. If most of your teeth are missing, a full denture set may be the best solution.

Full dentures are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of your mouth. The new teeth used in full dentures are made from porcelain; a perfect replica for natural looking teeth. The size, shape and colour of teeth vary from person to person. Our experienced team at Denture Professionals Cannington will choose the right full dentures that look like and enhance your real smile.

While many dentures are removable, there are alternative denture designs; some relying on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants or immediate dentures, complete and installed as soon as your teeth are removed.

How are Dentures Made?

Modern dentures are made in a commercial dental laboratory like the on-site laboratory at Denture Professionals and by a qualified dental prosthestist, using a combination of tissue shaded powder acrylic available in hundreds of shapes and tooth colors for a natural looking result.

The process begins with an initial dental impression of your mouth. This is used to create a simple stone model representing the arches of your mouth. The stone model is used to create a ‘Custom Impression Tray’ for a second, finer detailed, impression using highly precise materials.

A wax rim is created, assisting the dental prosthetist to establish various bite points, and a bite registration, from various positions of one arch to the other. The wax rim is used as the base to place denture teeth in correct positions. This is tested in your mouth and adjustments made. Once verified by the prosthetist, the denture is finally processed.

Processing a denture includes various steps over a number of hours, causing acrylic materials to bond very tightly. The acrylic is finally polished, and the denture is complete. All these steps means the final denture looks natural, is very strong and resilient, and can last for years, stain and odour free.

What Problems Can I Expect with Dentures?

Problems with dentures are often due to messages going to the brain, sensing the new dentures as ‘food’ and creating saliva. This sensation is temporary and, after the first 12 to 24 hours, the salivary glands return to normal.

New dentures can also cause sore spots. Minor adjustments in the days following the insertion of the dentures often eliminate this problem.

A small number of people can experience gagging. Dentures that are too loose or thick may be the cause. Sometimes, gagging is purely psychological. This is more difficult to treat, because it is beyond the dentist’s control. Often, an implant-supported denture can solve this issue.

In some cases, a gingivitis infection can develop, caused by accumulated dental plaque. Cleaning dentures daily is highly recommended. Plaque and tartar build up is not uncommon on false teeth and be cleaned using chemical or mechanical denture cleaners.

It’s best if dentures are removed during sleep. This gives the mouth tissue a chance to recover; otherwise you may develop a fungal infection, like denture-related stomatitis.

However, one of the most common problems for wearers of new upper complete denture is a loss of taste sensations.

Can I Eat Corn on the Cob?

Yes, you can! One of the best ways to get fully functioning dentures is to use lower dentures with two to four implants placed in the lower jaw for support.

This is far superior to lower dentures without implants, because:
• It is never easy to get full suction on the lower jaw.
• The tongue tends interrupts suction, and
• With supporting dental implants on your lower denture, you can bite into an apple or corn-on-the-cob.
• Without implants it is highly unlikely.

Both Implant-supported dentures and Immediate Dentures have advantages over conventional dentures that will be perfect for the health of your mouth and your lifestyle.

What’s the Difference Between Partial Dentures and Full Dentures?

Acrylic full dentures mould nicely around your existing gums, while partial dentures may have a framework of metal. Full dentures are held in place by suction, unlike partial dentures that have clasps that secure them to your gum line.

A properly fitted set of full dentures can not only restore your smile but also your confidence. At Denture Professionals we will create perfectly moulded fitted dentures to suit your mouth and your smile.
