Dentures

Dentures are one of the most cost-effective methods for replacing missing teeth. When you think of dentures, you may initially think of them as the removable, false-looking teeth that your grandparents used to wear. However, with modern advances, your dentures can be made to match closely with your natural teeth, and may even help to improve the look of your smile.
If you are considering dentures, speak with our friendly and professional team at Dentists of Ivanhoe.

Types of dentures

There are many types of dentures but we offer two of the most popular types: full dentures and partial dentures.

Full dentures:

Full dentures are used when there are no teeth on the upper or lower jaws. Both top and bottom dentures rely on the gum ridge and suction created by the denture for stability.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures:

Partial dentures are used when there are only a few teeth missing. They are harmless to your remaining teeth and will help stop them from moving and drifting.

FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions to get to know us better.

Eating with your dentures may take a little practice. You could start with soft foods and cut them into smaller pieces, chewing slowly. Use both sides of your mouth at the same time to prevent your denture from moving. As you become more used to your dentures, you can add other foods until you feel more confident resuming your normal diet.

Dentures are taken out every night and require daily cleaning with a denture brush and cleaner. Overnight, they can be soaked in denture solution so as to prevent warping.
