What are Dentures?

In simple terms, dentures are removable prosthetic devices that are custom-made to fit your mouth and replace missing teeth. They are made from a combination of materials such as acrylic resin, porcelain, and metal, and can be designed to replace some or all of your teeth. We typically recommend for people who have lost most or all of their teeth due to decay, injury, or ageing.

Types of Dentures

At the Clock Dental Practice, we offer a wide-ranging suite of denture options to suit your unique needs as well as your budget. Our different types of dentures include:

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, either because they have been removed or they were never there to begin with (as in the case of congenital absence). Complete dentures can be made from metal and come in a variety of shapes; some even look like real natural teeth! Immediate dentures are made in advance, so they can be worn immediately after the teeth are removed. However, these dental prosthetics may require additional adjustments during healing to ensure proper fit and function of replacement teeth.

Partial Dentures

These are used when some of the natural teeth are still present. Partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a plastic base that matches the colour of the gums, and are usually held in place with clasps that attach to the remaining natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are small titanium posts that act as an anchor for dentures. These dental prostheses can be used as a complete set of teeth or to replace individual missing ones, depending on the patient’s needs and preferences. In general, they provide greater stability and support than traditional dentures.

Different Types of Denture
Material

At the Clock Dental Practice, we offer a range of denture materials to suit your specific needs and preferences. Our professional dentists will work with you to determine the best material for your dentures based on factors such as durability, aesthetics, and comfort. Here are the different types of denture materials we use:

Flexi Dentures

Flexi dentures, also known as flexible dentures, are made from a flexible thermoplastic material. These dentures offer a lightweight and comfortable option for patients. The flexible nature of the material allows for a snug fit and improved comfort. Flexi dentures are also resistant to fracture and provide a more natural appearance.

Chrome-Cobalt Dentures

Chrome-cobalt dentures, also referred to as metal dentures, are made from a combination of chrome and cobalt metals. These dentures are known for their strength and durability, making them suitable for patients who require a sturdy and long-lasting solution. Chrome-cobalt dentures are precision-crafted, allowing for a thin and lightweight design while maintaining excellent strength and stability.

Acrylic Dentures

Acrylic dentures are a popular choice for their affordability and versatility. These dentures are made from acrylic resin, a type of plastic material. Acrylic dentures can be custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, providing a natural-looking smile. While acrylic dentures may not be as durable as other materials, they are easy to adjust and repair if needed.

Our professional dentists will guide you through the selection process, considering factors such as your oral health, budget, and personal preferences. Each denture material has its own advantages, and we will help you make an informed decision to ensure your dentures fit comfortably and enhance your smile.

The Denture Fitting Process

Getting dentures typically involves multiple appointments with our professional dentists at The Clock Dental Practice. Our dentist will examine your mouth and determine the best type of denture for your unique needs during the initial consultation. We will create a model of your dentures from impressions we take of your mouth to ensure that they fit properly.

Once the denture has been created, our dentist will then check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. We will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your dentures, including proper cleaning techniques and tips for maintaining good oral hygiene.

Benefits of
Dentures

There are many benefits to getting dentures, including:

Improved Oral Health

Dentures can help prevent further tooth loss and reduce the risk of gum disease by replacing missing teeth.

Restored Confidence

Dentures can restore your smile and help you feel more confident in social situations.

Enhanced Comfort

With a properly fitted denture, you can enjoy a comfortable and functional bite.

Improved Speech

It can be hard to speak clearly with missing teeth. Dentures can improve your speech, helping you communicate with clarity.

Caring for Dentures

Proper denture care is vital to keeping your dentures in good condition and ensuring they last as long as possible. Here are some tips for caring for your dentures:

Clean your dentures daily

It’s important to use a soft-bristled brush to clean your dentures daily. We recommend you use a denture-specific cleaner, as regular toothpaste can be too abrasive and damage the dentures.

Rinse your dentures after eating

We recommend washing your dentures after eating to remove any food particles that may be trapped between the dentures and your gums.

Soak your dentures overnight

Soak your dentures in water or a denture-specific cleaning solution overnight to keep them moist and prevent them from drying out.

Handle your dentures with care

Dentures are delicate and can easily break if dropped, so be sure to handle your dentures with care, and always hold them over a soft surface or a towel.
