Dentures in Narre Warren

Dentures at Narre Warren Dental CareThough we make every effort to preserve your teeth, there are situations in which dentures are the appropriate solution. The Narre Warren Dental Care team provides partial and fixed dentures that can replace full upper or lower sets of teeth. They’re usually made from cobalt chromium or acrylic materials.

Both types may require that some teeth be pulled or that some surgery be performed on the bony ridges beneath the gums to accommodate your new dentures better, so they have a perfect feel and “fit.”

Gaining a Natural-looking Smile

If you’re missing teeth, you may have noticed a drooping of facial features or that your jaw looks different. Dentures improve your smile, offer more muscle function in the mouth and prevent issues such as the loss of further teeth. Some lifestyle adjustments may be necessary, which we’ll be happy to advise you on.

What Can I Expect?

We begin by taking an impression of your teeth which is used to custom-make your dentures. If your dentures are full, and any extractions are necessary, a temporary denture is placed to assist with the healing and to provide “teeth” while your gums heal. A final denture is prepared after all healing has taken place, usually within 6-12 months. Partial dentures replace missing teeth and are attached to existing teeth with anchors made of plastic or metal.

Caring for Your Dentures

Here are some simple tips to remember to help ensure that your dentures last for as long as possible:

  • Remove and rinse your dentures following eating
  • Brush your dentures at least once a day
  • Soak your dentures overnight
  • Store your dentures in a safe place to avoid breakage

Alternative Treatments and Procedures

In addition to dentures, crowns and bridges may allow you to keep your existing teeth. Porcelain veneers are another option that can give you a stunning smile.
