Dentures at Hawthorn Smiles Dental

Home > Dentures

Dentures, or ‘false teeth’, can be an effective short to medium term option to replace missing teeth. Dentures have certainly evolved over the centuries of its documented use, and for many patients, it is the only option they have known for missing teeth.

Depending on the position and number of missing teeth, dentures can be made for a comfortable fit that still allows normal chewing, speaking, and tasting of food.

Over time, the gums and underlying bone recede where teeth are missing. Dentures may not fit as well, and food and plaque bacteria can lead to gum infections or tooth decay. If no other tooth replacement option is possible, resurfacing of the denture is important to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Are you looking for a fast and affordable choice for replacing missing teeth? Dentures and partial dentures with our Hawthorn, Victoria dentists may be the best choice. The price of getting dentures is one that is budget-friendly enough that they can be easily financed, even if insurance or discount options aren’t accessible.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are usually made of acrylic (or a metal base, in the instance of partials) with customised replacement teeth attached to a pink surface to mimic the colour of your gums. They’re the most affordable type of tooth replacement treatment and in some instances can be placed the same day as any necessary dental extractions.

Types of Denture Options

A denture isn’t just one type of prosthesis. Rather, dentures come in a variety of types of designs to best fit your lifestyle and dental needs.

Full Dentures — Sometimes called “plates,” full dentures are prosthetics that replace all of your upper or lower teeth at one time. They’re perfect for someone who needs full mouth reconstruction to repair their natural smile back to optimal health.

Partial Dentures — If you’re able to retain any natural teeth, partial dentures are appliances that snap in around your existing smile, replacing only the teeth that are already missing.

Implant Dentures — Today’s dentures can be snapped onto dental implants for added stability and comfort on a day-to-day basis. If you have problems with bone loss, dental implants can retain your appliance for a better fit. There are even designs that are permanently affixed in place, so that you don’t have to wear a removable denture.

Ongoing Denture Care for the Best Results

Remove your denture every night and soak it in an effervescent cleanser to loosen any buildup. Brush your prosthesis the next morning before wearing it again. Be sure to clean inside of your mouth with a soft washcloth after taking your denture out and before wearing it again.

Benefits of Getting Dentures: Low Price and Easy to Repair

Why should anyone get dentures? Here are just some of the biggest advantages:

  • Affordable and budget-friendly
  • Can be attached on top of dental implants

Both dental implants and fixed bridges are great alternatives to traditional dentures. But the treatment that’s right for you will depend on your budget and current dental health. Our Hawthorn dentists will need to examine your teeth and take a few pictures before determining which options you qualify for.
