Replace Missing Teeth with Natural-looking Dentures

Missing teeth can be embarrassing and negatively affect how you eat and speak.

When you lose one or more teeth, the bone in your jaw starts to shrink because it is no longer being used. This can lead to a number of other dental problems.

Dentures are an excellent way of restoring your smile if you have missing teeth. Dentures, or false teeth, are dental prosthetics made of acrylic, nylon, or metal that replace one or more of a person’s missing teeth. Our experienced dentists at Prospect Road Dental use a combination of 3D imaging technology and dental impressions to create modern dentures that feel like natural teeth when you bite down on them. Our goal is to make your custom-made dentures look as natural as possible.

What You Need To Know

FAQ About Our Dental Clinic In Armadale

We understand that you may have questions when seeing a new dentist for the first time. If your concern isn’t addressed
below, please feel free to contact our practice. One of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you.
Denture costs vary depending on the material they are made from, the type of dentures being made (complete denture or partial denture), and whether or not some extra features are included. Prices can range from $150 to $3,500, depending on what you decide to get.

Initially, your new dentures may not feel comfortable in your mouth. Saliva production may also increase. Your mouth will eventually adjust to your new dentures, and these symptoms will go away as you get used to them.

Getting used to false teeth takes some time. Eating may be challenging as you adjust to your new dentures. During the first few days following a denture fitting, eat only soft foods. Try eating smaller bites at first. Cut your food into smaller pieces and gradually increase your bite size. Be sure to chew your food evenly on both sides of your mouth. By doing so, there will be equal pressure on the artificial tooth, reducing the risk of mouth sores.

It may also be difficult for you to speak as clearly as you did before you had dentures. This will get easier as you become accustomed to them. Practise speaking aloud to train your facial muscles and avoid speech disorders. You can also sing and use tongue twisters to practise your speech.

For dentures to fit, you need to have healthy gums and jawbones. The soft tissues must provide a significant amount of support for dentures. Your dentist will have to manage your gum disease first, which may include scaling and root planing, as well as other periodontal treatments.

Immediate dentures, or temporary dentures, can replace your teeth on the same day you have them pulled. These are made a week or two before your tooth extraction. You’ll wear them for a few months after your extraction. Immediate dentures help to protect your gums as you recover from an extraction.

You can expect your custom dentures to be placed between six and eight weeks after the tooth extraction. However, healing time for the mouth varies from patient to patient, so it may take more than a couple of months to heal for some, while others require only a month.

Bacteria can breed in the gaps between your dentures and gums, which may cause decay. A good oral hygiene routine is an integral part of maintaining dentures.

Maintain your dentures by brushing them every day with a soft denture brush to remove plaque and food deposits. Make sure you use cleaning products made specifically for dentures. Depending on the materials used to make false teeth, there are different solutions, so make sure you follow your dentist’s advice. 

If you want your false teeth to last as long as possible, take proper care of them. Try not to bend them or damage any of the clips while cleaning them. While brushing your removable dentures, hold them over the sink with a soft washcloth. The washcloth will act as a cushion if they fall.

If your dentures are not in use, let them soak in a denture-cleaning solution overnight to prevent dryness, which can cause them to lose shape over time. Do not soak them in hot water, as this will cause the dentures to warp. Always rinse them thoroughly before placing them back in. Make sure you brush your tongue, gums, and palate before putting in your dentures.

It is recommended to see your dentist regularly so they can assess the fit of your dentures and adjust them if necessary.

Consult your dentist if you suspect your dentures are loose. Please do not adjust them yourself, as this can cause irreparable damage. Loose dentures are characterised by the following symptoms:

  • Your denture is slipping, which makes eating and chewing difficult.
  • You experience swollen, red, and sore gums for more than a few months after getting dentures.
  • Your denture is moving around in your mouth, making you gag or want to gag.
Please see your dentist. Dentures can be damaged if you attempt to repair them yourself. It is generally recommended to wait for the dentures to be repaired by a dentist. You can use denture adhesive while you wait for your dental appointment. Denture adhesives, however, should not be used for longer than a few days.
