At Springvale Dental Clinic, we use the latest technology to make the Dentures thin, strong, looking natural and importantly comfortable to wear. We at Springvale Dental Clinic take pride in the quality of our dentures.

Dentures are artificial prosthesis replacing one or more missing teeth. Dentures can be made from acrylic or metal base. Dentures can either be partial denture replacing some teeth or a full denture replacing all the teeth.

Sometimes it can reach a point where teeth can’t be repaired. As we age, bacteria and plaque find ways to eat away our teeth and gums. For some people, dentures become the only option; they aren’t a bad option though. They can give you a better smile and can stay for years without breaking down or decaying. It is also possible that you will only have to get partial dentures rather than a full set depending on your specific needs.

At Springvale Dental Clinic, our highly trained and skilled dentists work together to make your partial or custom-fitted dentures. Each denture is made of top quality material that will last for years and all our dentures are made to fit you, by labs around Melbourne and this also ensures a fast turnaround. We offer a broad range of dentures so that we can meet and satisfy your specific denture needs. We at Springvale Dental Clinic can help you restore that beautiful smile and normal functioning of your teeth using dentures.

Advantages of Dentures:

  • Dentures help in restoring function of the teeth, aesthetics and avoid other teeth from moving.
  • Dentures help to bite and chew properly, therefore avoiding wearing of other teeth.
  • Dentures help in improving the appearance of the person.

Type of Dentures

Full Dentures

Full dentures are used when all of your natural teeth are missing. They are removable as they are held together by suction. At times, full dentures can cause some soreness at first, but this stops as soon as you get used to them.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when there are just a few teeth missing or when nearby tooth are not strong enough to hold a bridge. Partial dentures are usually made of metal framework or acrylic. You can be able to remove partial dentures at night or for cleaning.

Denture procedure:

The exact denture procedure needed will vary with the type of denture needed. However the procedure will usually revolve around the following.You have an Initial Consultation with your dentist to assess your mouth for treatment planning.

  1. Initial moulds of your teeth and gums are taken using a high quality impression material.
  2. Accurate impression trays specially made for your mouth are fabricated at the lab. Secondary, more accurate moulds of your mouth can then be taken.
  3. Your Dentist uses wax blocks to record the required shape of the dentures for your mouth.
  4. Your 'bite' is recorded by the dentist. In the case of complete dentures the dentist records where the bite of the new dentures needs to be. Our dentist works with you to get this accurately.
  5. A trial denture is made up to check for accuracy of fit and appearance. The trial denture will use the same colour and shape of teeth that will be on the final denture. Any changes are easily made at this stage. If changes are needed, new trial dentures are made up and checked with a 're-try' visit.
  6. Once you and dentist are happy with the trial denture, the final denture is made at the lab.
  7. At least one review appointment is required to check how you and your mouth are adjusting to the denture. Some final adjustments to the denture may be needed.

When Do You Need Dentures?

  • - When your teeth have shifted or moved creating gaps between the teeth
  • - When you already have missing teeth, and some of your normal activities such as eating becomes difficult
  • - You feel self-conscious about your smile
  • - You have tooth aches or/and swollen gums

Maintenance

Food debris and plaque need to be cleaned from all dentures surfaces on a daily basis. Use a soft brush, mild soap, and water or denture paste to clean your dentures. It is not advisable to use standard toothpaste. To prevent breakage by dropping, use a hand basin half-filled with water to clean your dentures. Brush your tongue, palate, and gums with a soft toothbrush before inserting your dentures. This helps in removing plaque and stimulates circulation in your tissues. If you damage or break your denture, stop wearing it right away. Do not try to modify it, bend it or repair it. Call Springvale Dental Clinic right away to fix it. In case you find build up (calculus or tartar) soak it in white vinegar and water. If still, you can’t be able to remove it, call us and make an appointment to have your denture re-polished.

At Springvale Dental Clinic we use Australian owned and licensed dental labs in Melbourne. The dental lab technician creates your dentures in the lab. S/he works closely with our dentist to gain the desired result. Using a local dental lab allows us to provide you with your dentures in a timely manner.
