What are the different types of Dentures?

Dentures Perth come in a variety of materials & types, and we generally classify them as follows:

Partial Dentures (Removable)

A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces several missing teeth in either your upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures are not fixed in your mouth; you can remove them at any time. You may be recommended a partial denture if you have several missing teeth and want to improve your cosmetic appearance (by having the appearance of natural teeth), require help with biting or chewing your food, or want to maintain your oral health and teeth structure. Partial dentures are made using either chrome which is more expensive but long lasting and strong or an acrylic material which is more affordable but not as strong.

Immediate Dentures (Temporary)

Immediate dentures , also known as same-day dentures, are given ‘immediately’ after you have had badly damaged teeth extracted or removed so you don’t have to worry about any gaps in your smile while you wait for a more permanent solution.  Your immediate dentures are created using a mould of your teeth prior to the extraction, so they look almost identical and less noticeable that they’re different. 

As your gums are healing, your immediate denture is adjusted with tissue conditioning materials to improve its stability, fit and comfort inside your mouth.Immediate dentures also need to be relined regularly as your gums change shape quite rapidly in the ensuing months, following extraction.

Full Removable Dentures

Full removable dentures replace all of your teeth on either your upper or lower jaw through the one single appliance which sits on top of your gums and offers the appearance of natural teeth. This form of denture was more common in previous times and is known as the traditional denture but are now used less frequently. 

A full upper denture has a flesh-coloured acrylic base which covers the roof of your mouth, or palate. A full lower Dentures is horseshoe-shaped and sits on the lower jaw. For some, lower dentures can feel a little loose and unstable.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures also known as dental implant overdentures are a solution for individuals missing all their upper or lower teeth. These are an advancement on traditional dentures, as they look similar but instead snap into position using implants surgical inserted into your jaw to keep the implant in place so the denture does not move inside your mouth while eating, laughing or talking. 

Implant-supported overdentures, offer many benefits over traditional dentures, as they can:

  • Drastically improve stability of denture
  • Increase bite retention
  • Improve comfort with less gum and cheek irritation
  • Restore the ability to bite and chew food, allowing for a wider variety of foods to be eaten, consequently improving nutritional intake
  • A more affordable solution to missing teeth, than a full arch replacement
  • Help your feel more confident about yourself and your smile 

Denture Relines

As you mature and lose your natural teeth the soft tissues and bony structure in your mouth start to recede making your dentures more uncomfortable to wear.  When you lose your natural teeth, you also lose your tooth roots, which do more than hold your teeth in place. When biting and chewing your food, your tooth roots stimulate your jawbone, helping to keep it strong. Without your tooth roots, the jawbone starts to resorb or wither away, and your gumline changes shape. Consequently, as time passes, your denture won’t fit as well creating gaps between your jaw bone and the denture – making it feel loose. To remedy this problem, you’ll need to come in regularly for a denture reline. During a reline, our technicians will modify your denture by adding more denture material to fill those gaps, so that it continues to fit nicely against your gums and your dentures are comfortable again

Custom Denture Cost Perth?

Denture Cost does range depending on your particular needs. As an approximate, a high quality and custom made Dentures in Perth starts from around $3,000. Your health fund insurance may also cover a portion of your treatment costs. The cost of your denture treatment in Perth can range depending on the type of treatment you choose and some other factors are listed below:

  • Length of treatment
  • Type of dentures, upper, lower, or both
  • Partial dentures or full dentures
  • Emergency denture repairs

Common Issues with Dentures

There are a few common issues that may arise when using Dentures in Perth.
Issues mostly occur right after the appliance has been fitted and tend to resolve themselves as the mouth adjusts.
These issues are:

  • Movement
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Difficulty eating/ tasting food
  • Talking
  • Excess saliva
  • Jaw decay
  • Denture Costs, realigns, repairs and replacements

Alternatives to Traditional Dentures

Yes, once you start to factor in the Denture costs, there are alternatives to dentures which are: 

  • Dental Implant Fixed Bridge – one of the most common alternatives to dentures, dental implants replace individual teeth by surgically inserting the titanium structure into place into the jaw bone. Unlike dentures, implants bridges cannot be removed and you must have healthy gums. A fixed bridge, if taken care of are a durable, long lasting tooth replacement option. Learn more about All on 4 or a Fixed Full Arch Treatment.
  • Dental Implant supported Overdentures – this replacement option is used if patients don’t have a lot of remaining teeth. Overdentures work by adhering onto remaining teeth or ‘clicking’ onto special implants surgical placed within the jaw. While they’re an excellent alternative to dentures, patients require healthy gums to qualify for this treatment.

Fixed vs. Removable - Dental Implant Options

Learn the difference between the two main options for all teeth replacement.

Fixed – Full Arch attached to Implants (like an All on 4)

A full arch fixed implant mimics the natural contours, shape and form of natural teeth. This is a fixed implant treatment, which means that the patient is not able to remove the prosthesis from their mouth once fitted and can only be removed by your Aria Dental professional.

As the full arch fixed implant is screwed tightly on to 4 to 6 tiny titanium screws that have been ‘implanted’ within your jawbone it gives you a superior strength and a fantastic ‘non-moveable’ fit, so you can feel ‘normal’ again to smile and eat as you once did. You can eat solid food with ease and as the full arch fixed implant doesn’t move and was custom designed to fit, you have no worries about it moving or feeling ‘odd’ in your mouth.

The full arch fixed implant is the preferred long-term dental treatment. With the aim to deliver high quality, natural tooth aesthetics to our Aria Dental patients, the full arch fixed implant offers the most natural looking, feeling and functioning teeth result.

Removable – Implant supported Overdenture

Implant-supported removable dentures or overdentures are an upper or lower denture that is retained in your mouth by using implant fixtures with special ‘clip-on’ abutments surgically implanted into the jaw. The overdenture ‘teeth’ click into the fixtures and then rests on top of gums covering what is remaining of the patient’s natural teeth. It can be removed for cleaning or at any desired time by the wearer.

When compared to traditional dentures perth, these dentures have better grip therefore improving a patient’s experience when talking, drinking or eating. The functionality and comfort experienced with an implant-supported removable denture is greater than that of traditional denture as the implant fixture gives it hold, decreasing the amount of denture movement within the patient’s mouth when talking, drinking or eating.
