Dentures

A denture is a false tooth that is used to replace missing teeth. They are designed to closely resemble natural teeth and to enhance your smile. Your dentist will design your denture to suit you specifically, custom made to fit in your mouth so they are as comfortable as possible. The perception that dentures are a set of standard removable teeth is far from the truth, now they provide natural looking smiles.
Dentures have numerous benefits, such as making eating and speaking easier but can also avoid a loss of confidence in the way your smile and overall appearance looks. A denture is usually a removable dental appliance replacement, however there are various types of dentures. From full, to partial dentures and from removable to dental implants, there are many solutions that you can find at our White Dental clinics in Sydney.

Permanent Dentures

Permanent dentures or dental implants, are false teeth that are affixed to the bone in the jaw. That means they are not removable, like typical dentures. This means they will feel exactly like natural teeth. There is minimal risk that they would ever shift or fall out, plus permanent dentures can be placed where you need them, whether that’s one missing tooth or multiple.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures are the most affordable option for people missing some or all of their teeth. They are still a popular choice and are customised to look and feel like the real thing. Removable dentures allow you to eat more foods and will help give back natural fullness in your mouth.

Flexible Dentures

Flexible Dentures are a good solution for patients who are not wanting to use regular dentures. Flexible dentures aren’t as brittle so are less likely to shatter if they’re dropped and don’t require metal clasps to hold them in place. Valplast dentures are a popular option with a perfect degree of flexibility and stability when made to the recommended thickness.

Full Dentures

As the name suggests, full dentures or complete dentures, are used to replace a full set of missing teeth on the upper or lower jaw. These types of dentures can either be removable or supported with the use of implants.

Partial Dentures

Partial or part dentures are useful when false teeth are replacing just one missing teeth or a few, rather than a full set. These are used in instances when there are one or more natural teeth remaining in the jaw.

How much do dentures cost?

The price of dentures is dependent on the type of false teeth you need as well as the materials that are used. Dentures offer one of the most cost-effective methods for replacing missing teeth.

Cost of full set of dentures

The cost of a full set of complete dentures in Australia, according to the 2017 National Dental Fee Survey, will cost up to $3,870 for upper and lowers dentures.

Cost of partial set of dentures

The cost of a partial set of dentures for either an upper or lower denture can be up to $2,000, according to the 2017 National Dental Fee Survey. Each denture solution is custom made to you, and we can work with you to find a solution that suits your needs.

Cost of dentures for Pensioners

The cost of dentures for pensioners can vary but unfortunately, are not free. This can cause concern, so be aware of what you are entitled to and how much you should be paying for dentures. Our dentists can help talk you through your options.

How to clean dentures

Dentures should be cleaned in the morning and before bed. After meals, you may also want to rinse them in cold water. Follow the steps below to clean your dentures.

  1. Take them out
  2. Brush all surfaces to remove food and plaque build-up
  3. Use a denture brush with mild soap and water or a denture paste. Toothpaste is not recommended as it can scratch the dentures
  4. Do not hold lower dentures at the ends as the pressure could cause it to snap
  5. Clean dentures over a hand basin half-filled with water or covered with a towel so that can’t break if dropped.
  6. Brush your natural teeth and parts that are normally covered by your dentures.
  7. After cleaning, keep your dentures in a cup of cold water or a clean dry container. Rinse them under fresh cold water before putting them in again.

How to take care of dentures

The good thing is, dentures are made to last. However, they may have to be remade, repaired or readjusted due to normal wear and tear so that you can retain your optimal smile. In order to keep your mouth healthy, it’s important to look after your dentures. It is very important to take removable dentures out before you go to bed. By doing this, you are giving your mouth a chance to rest and recover and also prevents fungal infections.

Anything else related to cleaning & taking care

If your removable dentures are not fitted properly, they can start to loosen and shift over time. This can cause discomfort while also hindering speech and eating. Prolonged wearing of removable dentures can lead to jaw bone shrinkage. That is why it is so important to undergo this treatment with your trusted Sydney dentists at White Dental Clinic.
