Dentures in Melbourne Dental Couture
Dentures are a popular option to replace missing teeth. These are removable prosthetics and are ideal for patients who are concerned about budget. While they may not be a permanent solution due to loss of bite force, you can update to a more permanent solution like implant-supported dentures when you are ready. Our team at Dental Couture at Melbourne North West are experienced with dentures and can guide you through the process and help you choose the best denture solution for your needs.

Types of Dentures


Dentures are most often created with acrylic resin, but in some cases, a cobalt chrome metal framework may support the acrylic. For those with dental implants, dentures may include a mechanical retention housing that secures onto the implants to keep them in place. The following guide offers descriptions of each type of denture solution:
Complete Dentures in Melbourne Dental Couture

The Benefits of Dentures


Dentures are a solution to replace missing teeth. They are enjoyed by patients because of the following benefits:

Least expensive teeth replacement option

Inexpensive to repair if broken or damaged
Dentures look like your natural teeth and gums
Can bulk up bone that has shrunk from tooth loss, therefore having an anti-aging effect
Affordable for patients on a budget

The Disadvantages of Dentures


While dentures offer an affordable option to replace missing teeth, like any other treatment there are disadvantages including:

Can be easily damaged or broken, especially if dropped

Many patients find them uncomfortable and bulky
Bulkiness may lead to a loss of taste for some patients
Bite force may diminish by 70-80%, meaning you cannot eat hard foods with dentures
Foods and bacteria are easily trapped between dentures and gums
Patients who use dentures for an entire lower set of teeth often find them to be very uncomfortable

What to Expect with Dentures from Dental Couture at Melbourne North West


When you are ready to replace your missing teeth, we will first do a comprehensive dental examination and evaluation of your mouth, jawbone and overall oral health. Using a series of diagnostic tools like x-rays or scans, we will determine the amount of bone loss, find the ideal solutions that fit your situation and then discuss all options with you.

If you choose dentures, we will take a series of impressions of your mouth to be used to create the dentures. Creating the dentures may require a series of visits to ensure the denture trays fit comfortably before we move ahead and create the final.

Your dentures will have to be secured into place to keep them from moving and shifting while you talk and eat. The following are some options for securing your dentures:

The following are some options for securing your dentures:

Dental Couture Number 1

Traditional dentures are secured with saliva and natural suction between the prosthesis and your gums

Dental Couture Number 2

Some dentures may require extra securing with a fixative or denture adhesive

Dental Couture Number 3

Implant-supported dentures are secured by snapping onto dental implants, which are tiny posts that are placed into the jawbone; as the bone heals, it secures the implant into place

Caring for Your Dentures


Keeping your dentures clean is the best way to avoid problems due to trapped debris and bacteria. Ideally, they should be removed at night for cleaning as your gums rest and exposure to saliva allows the bacteria to balance and prevent harmful bacteria buildup. Removing dentures also gives you a chance to brush, clean and soak them.

Soaking dentures is done with a specialised cleaning powder or tablet that can be purchased over-the-counter. These are used to keep the dentures fresh and avoid staining. However, if you do accumulate stains, simply give us a call for an appointment with the hygienist who can professionally clean them.

Regular dental visits are the best way to ensure your gums and the rest of your teeth remain healthy. Daily maintenance and regular dental visits will help your dentures last a long time. Lastly, as gums shrink and the mouth changes shape, dentures will not fit the same over time, but we can make changes and modifications to restore comfort and fit.

Dentures and Risk Factors


While low, dentures do have some risk factors to consider. Most patients consider them a last resort because they tend to be uncomfortable as they often shift while talking or eating. This can become bothersome for some when it comes to dining out or socialising. Sometimes a loss of taste may occur with regular denture use. Some patients develop ulcers on the gums due to the rubbing of dentures on the gums caused by too much movement or food particles stuck under the dentures. Again, the best way to avoid this is with regular maintenance and dental check-ups.
