To satisfy the needs of each unique patient, we offer a wide selection of options for full or partial dentures in Melbourne. We take the time to fully comprehend your requirements and problems before attempting to provide a satisfying resolution.
There are 2 main types of dentures available.
Complete dentures are an option when all of the teeth are missing.
Partial dentures are designed to be used when you still have some natural teeth present.
In most instances, both complete and partial dentures are designed to be removable.
They provide an artificial replacement for some of a person’s teeth if all of them need to be replaced. They are a less expensive alternative to dental implants or fixed bridges. Dentists frequently recommend the use of partial dentures because they restore a person’s smile and chewing habits at an affordable price.
Anyone thinking about getting partial dentures should be aware of the various types available. In order for partial dentures to function properly, a person must have at least one or more natural teeth remaining in either the lower or upper jaw. Today, we will discuss the various options for partial dentures.
If you still have one or more teeth in your upper or lower jaw, partial dentures are an option. They, like full dentures, are made up of a set of porcelain teeth attached to a pink resin base. Their purpose is to fill in gaps where teeth are missing, usually using metal clasps rather than dental adhesive to keep them in place.
However, partial dentures offer more than just cosmetic advantages. They also help to keep the teeth around them from shifting, which can cause malocclusion (a bad bite) and gum infection.
Cast metal dentures, as the name suggests, have a metal framework that attaches via clasps that cling to dental crowns. The metal framework may appear to be visible, but it is not. The gum-colored plastic will conceal this area, but the clasps may be visible if a person smiles or opens their mouth wide.
The metal framework then interacts directly with the acrylic-based gum covering to give a person a more natural appearance. This method of dentures is said to be the most popular due to their durability.
Metal partial dentures are generally smaller, lighter, and easier to adjust. They are also much stronger, more resistant to damage, and have a much longer lifespan.
However they are also more expensive for all these reasons.
These dentures are lightweight in addition to being flexible. Because they are made of realistic nylon-looking material, they may also be more comfortable to wear. The dentist may not need to alter any of the natural teeth that are still present with this method of dentures, which is an added benefit of flexible partial dentures.
Another advantage of flexible partial dentures is that the person wearing them typically responds and adapts to them faster than other partial denture methods.
A dental or tooth flipper is typically used as a temporary partial denture while a more permanent one is being created. While these are not permanent and are not inexpensive, they do help to reduce bone loss and movement of natural teeth as the gums heal.
Acrylic partial dentures are made entirely of acrylic (plastic) and are attached to the remaining natural teeth with metal wire clasps.
Acrylic partial dentures are typically larger, heavier, and more difficult to adjust to. Their main advantage, however, is that they are less expensive.
The health of your remaining teeth is a compelling reason to consider an acrylic denture over a metal base.
If you are likely to lose more teeth in the near future, acrylic dentures are easier to add teeth to, which means that losing teeth does not necessitate having a completely new denture made.
A complete denture is designed to fit snugly over the gums and jawbone to replace an entire arch of teeth.
The exact process and time required to fit a denture like this will depend on your specific circumstances.
If you must have teeth extracted before the denture is made, you may be required to wait several weeks, if not months, to allow the gums and bone to heal before fitting them.
Natural suction will hold a well-fitting, well-made denture in place.
Dentures, like natural teeth, require cleaning, but you will typically remove them to do so. A dentist will show you how to clean your denture properly.
Full and partial dentures deteriorate and stain over time. As a result, dentures are typically replaced every 5 to 7 years. Because your mouth changes as you age, even if your dentures do not need to be replaced, they may need to be adjusted on a regular basis to ensure a proper fit.
There will be an adjustment period as you get used to your new teeth. Our patients frequently notice the following:
Getting into the habit of eating your favourite foods.
For the first few days, eat soft foods.
You may experience some discomfort as you adjust to your new teeth. We might start with some mild pain relievers.
A healthy mouth requires daily cleaning.
Our dentist visits us on a regular basis.
Denture prices vary depending on your individual treatment plan, but they are less expensive than dental implants. Before treatment begins, we can provide you with accurate denture prices at our Melbourne clinic and advise you on what is covered by your insurance plan.
The price of your dentures is determined by three major factors: material, type, and level of customization. Full (or complete) dentures, for example, are more expensive than partial dentures.
Other price factors for dentures include:
the cost of potential tooth extractions, the cost of temporary dentures until your permanent dentures are ready to wear, and the cost of follow-up appointments for adjustments if necessary
So, how much do dentures cost? The average cost of dentures varies greatly depending on the process and materials used in their manufacture. On average, however, traditional full dentures start at $3500 and partial dentures start at $900. However, all of the prices listed are only guidelines.
If money isn’t an issue and you want a more permanent solution to your dental problems, consider getting dental implants.
The following are the most important facts about dentures that you should be aware of.
