Dentures FAQs

Consider complete or partial dentures if you have missing or damaged teeth. Modern dentures are comfortable and natural-looking, boosting your confidence in your smile.

What could cause you to need full or partial dentures?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we'll make every effort to keep your current teeth. However, partial or full dentures may be your best course of action if you have missing or seriously damaged teeth.

Teeth missing affect more than just appearance. Significant gaps can make it difficult to chew or speak, cause your teeth to shift out of alignment as they try to fill the space, and even cause your face to slump.

Different kinds of dentures

At our clinic, we provide a variety of dentures, including:

Partial dentures to replace several teeth.

Dentures that replace all your teeth completely.

Dentures with implants that are secured to your gums by titanium screws.

What is the procedure for treating dentures?

We must first take an impression of your mouth in order to fit you for dentures. You will wear a trial set made from this for a brief length of time. The final dentures will then be adjusted on this model to guarantee a secure and comfortable fit.

If the condition of your remaining teeth is extremely poor, we may advise having them removed and fitting you with a full set of dentures.

Living with partial dentures

Wearing dentures could seem awkward at first. You will adjust to your dentures, though, so don't worry.

For the first several weeks, we advise you to wear your dentures all day long. You should be able to remove your dentures at night to give your gums a break after your mouth has adjusted.

Your food shouldn't be limited if you wear dentures. But for the first several weeks, we advise you to stick to soft foods.

To prevent bad breath, gum disease, and oral thrush, you'll need to clean your dentures on a regular basis. A soft brush and an overnight soak in a denture solution should be used to clean your dentures at least twice a day.

We take the time to make sure your dentures are securely fastened and properly fitted. To add more security and confidence, some clients want to utilise a dental adhesive.

Complete dentures

Complete dentures make a significant change that you'll notice. You will be able to eat and chew again thanks to their entirely natural appearance, comfort, and safety. They'll give your facial features more definition so they appear fuller once again, boosting your confidence and bringing back your brilliant smile.

Implant-retained dentures

Both partial and full dentures can be replaced with dental implants. An effective and long-lasting alternative to dentures is provided by titanium implants placed into your jawbone and attached to the prosthetic teeth. Unfortunately, not everyone qualifies for implants since they cannot be repaired if there has been severe bone loss, and eligibility may also be impacted by other medical issues. Dentures are less expensive than implants, but if you prefer to go that route, we do have interest-free payment plans.
