Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetic appliances made to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.

Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many denture styles, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or implants.

There are two primary types of dentures: partial and complete dentures.

Partial dentures also called “removable partial dentures” or “partials”.

They may be used when adjacent teeth are not sturdy enough to support a bridge, or when just a few teeth are missing.

Partial dentures are composed of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto natural teeth.

You can take the partial denture out on your own, for cleaning and at night.

Complete dentures also referred to as “false teeth” or “full dentures”. They are used when all your teeth are missing.

Complete dentures are removable and are held intact by suction. They can cause pain at first and take some time to get used to.

There are two kinds of complete dentures: immediate dentures and conventional dentures.

Immediate dentures are placed immediately after teeth removal.

Your Gosnells dentist will take measurements and moulds of your teeth in advance, so the dentures are ready for you to wear while your jaw is healing.

Overdentures

If you are having problems with your complete dentures, your dentist may recommend overdentures.

Overdentures are removable dentures that fit over the natural teeth left in your mouth or over implants.

If you have some natural teeth left, they are restructured to fit in the denture. If there are no teeth left, small implants are placed on the jawbone.

The overdenture attaches to the dental implants or on the natural teeth.

Looking After Your Dentures

Dentures may feel a bit strange, but you’ll quickly get used to wearing them.

At first, you may need to wear them all the time, even when sleeping.

Your dentist will advise you about removing your dentures before you go to sleep.

It isn’t always required to remove your dentures at night, but doing so can allow your gums to rest and breathe while you are asleep.

If you remove your dentures, they should stay moist in water or a polythene bag with some damp cotton wool in it, or an overnight denture-cleaning solution.

Dental Hygiene

Maintaining oral hygiene is just as important as wearing dentures.

Brush your teeth, gums, and tongue at least twice a day with fluoride-containing toothpaste to prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other dental problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I sleep while wearing dentures?

Yes, you can wear your dentures while sleeping, but it is best that they are removed. You should remove your dentures at night, as this will give your gums and bone time to relax from the bite pressure of the denture during the day.

Is wearing dentures painful?

When you’re first fitted for dentures, it’s normal to experience minor irritation, which should fade as your mouth becomes accustomed to them.

Can I eat normally with dentures?

Most patients need to learn how to use dentures properly, and as a result, it takes a short period to get used to them. After a while, you should be able to eat normally, but it may take more time to get comfortable with harder or sticky foods.
