Perth Dentures

The most affordable option if you are missing some or all your teeth

Removable conventional dentures are the most affordable option for individuals missing some or all their teeth – and are still a popular option.

Living without teeth can be difficult. But it needn’t be like this. Aria Dental can craft beautiful, customised dentures that look and feel almost like the real thing. Removable dentures allow you to eat more foods and function better than you would without teeth. They also help give you back the natural fullness in your mouth that teeth provide.

At Aria Dental, Dr Zhang and our highly skilled Dental Technicians, will carefully crafted you a beautiful denture that will give you a superior fit, made from high quality materials, a personalised natural look and will be far more comfortable than some of the discounted, ill-fitting dentures being sold in the market today.

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

  • Partial Dentures
  • Immediate Dentures
  • Full Removable Dentures
  • Dental Implant-Supported Dentures

What are the different types of Dentures?

Partial Dentures

Partial Dentures

A partial (removable) 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) or to help with biting or chewing your food.

An acrylic material or chrome is used to make partial dentures. Acrylic dentures are more affordable, but not as strong, while chrome costs more but is long-lasting.

Immediate dentures at Arial Dental

Immediate Dentures (Temporary)

Immediate dentures are given ‘immediately’ after you have had your badly damaged teeth extracted or removed. While your gums are healing, your immediate denture is adjusted with tissue conditioning materials to improve stability, fit and comfort in your mouth.

Immediate dentures need to be relined regularly as your gums change shape quite rapidly in the ensuing months, following extraction.

Complete removable dentures

Full Removable Dentures

Also known as traditional dentures, these are the original dentures – used more frequently in previous days – and are not attached to implants. Full dentures replace all missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. They sit on top of your gumline to give the appearance of natural teeth.

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

Implant-supported denture at Arial Dental

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are also known as dental implant overdentures. They are a solution for individuals missing all their upper or lower teeth. A vast improvement on traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are attached, via an abutment, to dental implants which anchor the overdenture in place.

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

  • Drastically improve stability
  • 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

Denture Relines

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.

Are there Alternatives to Dentures?

Yes, there is an alternatives to conventional removable dentures – called an Overdenture or Dental Implant Supported Overdenture. This is where your dentist will use Dental implants to ‘clip-on’ and attach your new set of teeth (bridge). The Overdenture attachments keep the denture from moving & pressing down too hard on the gum line, allowing an Overdenture wearer to bite on harder foods without the typical discomfort or movement a traditional denture wearer experiences. Most dental implant Overdenture wearers report significant improvement the level of comfort and function that an Overdenture provides versus a traditional denture.

Full Arch Fixed Implant vs. Implant-Supported Denture

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

Full Arch Fixed Implant

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.

A single upper or lower full arch fixed implant treatment starts from approximately $17,500. With a fixed full arch (upper and lower teeth) priced from approximately $30,000-$35,000. Private health insurance rebates may apply.

Implant-Supported Removable Denture

The implant-supported removable denture, more commonly known as a overdenture, is a upper or lower denture that is retained in your mouth by using implant fixtures with special ‘clip-on’ abutments. The overdenture prosthetic ‘clicks on’ the fixtures and then rest on top of gums, covering what remaining of the patient’s natural teeth (if any). It can be removed for cleaning or at any desired time, by the wearer.

It is one of the most practical measures used in preventive dentistry. The functionality and comfort experienced with an implant-supported removable denture is greater than that of conventional denture as the implant fixture give it some hold, decreasing the amount of denture movement within the patients mouth when talking, drinking or eating.

An implant-supported removable overdenture typically starts from $13,000 to $15,000 (lower or upper), with a removable full arch (upper and lower teeth) priced from approximately $26,000 to $30,000. Private health insurance rebates may apply.

Common Issues with Dentures

Even with well-fitted and expertly-made dentures that are regularly relined and cared for – some people may not enjoy dentures. Conventional dentures are generally considered as a cost-effective alternative to teeth. Some very common feedback with conventional removable dentures include:

Lack of Retention and Support

As dentures sit on the gum line and are not attached to any firm anchor, they can move around and not provide adequate support or stability. This instability makes everyday activities such as talking, eating, laughing or coughing more difficult.

Pain or Discomfort

Some denture wearers suffer irritation on the gums or sores in their cheeks from the constant movement.

Difficulty Tasting Food

Upper denture wearers may have trouble tasting their food as a conventional upper denture has an acrylic plate that covers the roof of the mouth. This plate feels bulky and also makes it more difficult to taste your food.

Bone Resorption

As conventional denture wearers no longer have their natural teeth, they no longer have their natural teeth roots. As mentioned, tooth roots help to stimulate your jawbone, keeping it strong and helping prevent resorption. Therefore, long-term removable denture wearers usually suffer bone loss, with their lower faces starting to fall in with a ‘collapsed’ appearance.

Due to the superiority to conventional dentures in comfort and functionality, patients may also choose the more permanent solution of a dental implant treatment. 

Benefits of a Dental Implant

Dental Implants are the preferred treatment option if you need a all teeth replacement

Here’s why:

  • Dental implants offers the most natural looking, feeling and functioning teeth result
  • Feels very similar to your natural teeth, similar aesthetics to natural looking teeth that allow you to eat all types of foods
  • The implant is fixed in your mouth which removes the mobility and discomfort that can occur with a removable options
  • Dental implants prevent adjacent teeth from moving, creating alignment problems
  • Dental implants stimulate and preserve the remaining bone unlike removable dentures which can cause bone loss
  • The positive psychological impact with the feeling of being truly rehabilitated – no more missing teeth!
