Full denture

 
A full denture replaces all of the upper or lower teeth
 
 
 

Partial denture

 
A partial denture is made to fill the space left by a few missing teeth. Clasps are used to secure the denture in place to nearby natural teeth. There are two types of partial dentures; acrylic or metal and the dental prosthetist will advise you about the best material for you.

Treatment Plan - Dental Service in Coffs Harbour, NSW
 
 

Immediate denture

 
The dentist inserts an immediate denture after teeth are extracted at the same appointment. The advantage of this is that the patient avoids a period without teeth.
 
 
 

Over-denture

 
An over-denture is a denture that fits over the top of remaining teeth, over roots that have had root canal treatment or by attachment to dental implants. Remaining teeth or dental implants act as anchors to secure it in place.

Denture Reline - Dental Service in Coffs Harbour, NSW
 
 

Denture reline

 
Relining a denture is a means of creating new fitting surface on an existing denture. A reline may be needed when a denture has poor fit and lack of retention as the alveolar bone resorbs over time.
 
 
 

Denture repair

 
We can repair fractured dentures or replace a broken artificial tooth

What should I expect over the first few days of receiving your denture?

 
  • The denture may feel tight and uncomfortable, and may feel bulky as if crowding the mouth
  • Your gums may feel sore
  • You may notice an increase in the amount of saliva in your mouth
  • It is best to eat soft foods
  • Speech may be affected
 
 
 

What is denture adhesive?

 
Denture adhesives can give you added confidence that your denture will not slip out of place. It is a product that is applied to the fitting surface of dentures and comes into contact with the gums as the dentures are worn. The adhesive creates a layer between the dentures and the gums that make it more difficult for dentures to move around and fall out of place. However, denture adhesive is not the answer to a poorly fitting denture. If it does not fit well, consult with your dental prosthetist.
 
 
 

What kind of overnight care is needed with dentures?

 
Ideally, dentures should be removed before going to bed as this allows the gum tissues a chance to rest. Removal of full dentures also prevents grinding and clenching of teeth which increase wear on them. After cleaning your dentures, place them dry inside the case that we have provided.
 
 
 

Will my speech be different after dentures?

 
After receiving your new dentures, sometimes certain words may be difficult to pronounce at first. It may help to practice speaking in front of the mirror and pronouncing words slowly as your tongue and cheek muscles will soon adapt to the new dentures.
 
 
 

How do you eat with dentures?

 
Learning to eat with dentures takes practice and time. It is best to eat soft food within the first few days and transition into harder foods. To help keep the dentures in place, cut food into small pieces, take small mouthfuls and chew slowly. Avoid biting with the front teeth as this can cause the dentures to tip and may place excess pressure on the gums. Until you get used to sensing temperature of food, treat hot food with caution and avoid sticky food such as toffee and shard or hard food like nuts or raw carrots. As you gain confidence with your dentures, widen your diet to ensure a healthy nutrition.
 
 
 

What do I do if I get soreness from denture adjustment?

 
If soreness develops, call your dental prosthetist for an appointment as the denture probably needs an adjustment. If the soreness worsens before the appointment, remove the denture and gargle with warm salty water until the appointment. Loose dentures or ill-fitting dentures can cause irritation and ulcers of the gums that are painful. Do not try to adjust your own denture as it has been carefully made to fit your mouth. Home repairs often end up causing more harm than good. Make sure to contact your dental prosthetist for denture adjustments.
 
 
 

How do you clean your dentures?

 
It is recommended to clean your dentures after each meal or at least twice a day. Remove them and rinse away food particles with warm or cold water with a soft toothbrush and unperfumed mild soap or denture-cleaning cream. Brush both inside and outside surfaces of your dentures and while brushing, hold the denture over a basin of water or towel to avoid breakage if dropped. It is best to avoid the use of standard toothpastes as many brands are too abrasive.

Do not use:
 
 
  • Hot or boiling water as the denture will warp
  • Detergents
 
 
 
  • Bleaches
  • Methylated spirits
 
 
 
  • Any other string chemicals of any kind
