A removable solution to replace missing teeth

A denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Commonly referred to as ‘false teeth’, a denture is usually made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal.

A partial denture is fitted to replace some missing teeth whilst a complete denture is indicated when all natural teeth are missing.

A good set of dentures helps you to eat, speak, function, and often improves a person’s appearance.

Depending on the complexity of each case, the duration of the treatment will vary. After the initial visit of examination and diagnosis, the subsequent visits will include taking impressions of the mouth, bite registration, try-in of the denture, fitting and review.

What can I expect?

New dentures always feel strange when first placed in your mouth. Several days or weeks will be required before you get accustomed to them.

Adaptation varies with different persons and often time and experience are essential before dentures can be worn comfortably and function effectively.

Useful suggestions to help you to adapt to the new dentures:

Eating – Eating will take a little practice. Start with soft foods and foods cut into small pieces will help. Chew slowly using both sides of your mouth at the same time to prevent dentures from tipping. Once you become accustomed to chewing, include other foods until you return to your normal diet.

Increased salivary flow – You may experience an increase in salivary flow when the dentures are first inserted. This is a natural response of the salivary glands that will return to normal after a few weeks. You can improve the situation by swallowing more often.

Speech – New dentures may alter your speech initially. Pronouncing certain words may require practice. Reading out loud and repeating troublesome words will speed up the adaptation process. This problem rarely persists beyond two weeks.

Sore spots – Minor irritation caused by surface irregularities or pressure spots on the denture-bearing areas are quite common. Your dentist will relieve the discomfort by adjusting the denture surface. Stop wearing the denture if the irritation is very painful. Consult your dentist immediately.

Cobalt chrome dentures

These are cast metal dentures generally considered to be the more permanent partial denture unlike plastic partial dentures. These are clipped to the natural teeth with clasps and most importantly incorporate rests on the teeth.

The clasps hold the denture firm and the rests stop any damaging up and down movement.
