Dentures in Kingsley

Denture close-up People typically think of dentures as something only older people need. But the truth is, these appliances can be a good solution for people of any age who are missing multiple teeth. In some cases, implants or bridges simply aren’t feasible or may be too costly for the individual.

At Serene Smiles Perth, we offer dentures as a good replacement option for people who don’t mind a removable device.

Our Approach

We offer two different types: acrylic dentures which are made entirely of plastic except for a few wrought wires that clasp around the necessary teeth; or metal (chromium-cobalt) dentures which have a thin metal framework with acrylic teeth and gums where visible in the smile line. The metal type lasts longer and fits more seamlessly as it can be made much thinner and smaller, so we generally recommend that for long-term use. The acrylic version can be a good temporary solution if you are using dentures until you’re ready to transition to implants. We can also make valplast dentures which are a more flexible plastic material, good for shorter span dentures or as a temporary measure before the use of implants or more complex dental work.

Taking Care of Your Appliance

These dental appliances have come a long way in the past twenty years, and patients typically adjust to them quite well after the initial learning curve. Because they are not affixed in your mouth, they can move around a bit and may affect your speech and chewing. We find that most people adapt to this within the first few weeks. If you have full dentures, you may not be able to eat certain foods the way you’re used to—for example, you may not be able to bite into an apple.

Cleaning dentures is not difficult. You clean them when you brush your teeth at night, and leave them in their case overnight. In the morning, you just give them a rinse and put them back in. It’s important to remove them at night to allow your gums to breathe. Denture wearers can be prone to fungal infections if the dentures aren’t removed and cleaned appropriately.

People sometimes think that if they have no teeth, they can stop coming to the dentist. However, it’s important to continue coming in every six months so we can assess your gum and soft tissue health and ensure that no fungal infections or other problems are beginning.
