Dentures are removable prosthetics constructed by your dentist or a dental prosthetist to replace missing teeth and rejuvenate your smile. Our professional prosthetist can replace lost teeth with either a full or partial denture. Dentures are supported by surrounding structures as well as clasps. Filling in missing teeth can help with eating and speaking, support facial appearance and prevent facial sagging.
Have you lost a significant number of your teeth or have teeth that are severely damaged? Are you looking for an affordable solution for replacing them and restoring your ability to speak, eat, and smile confidently?
If so, you might want to opt for dentures. Many of our patients looking for tooth replacement solutions can benefit from dentures as they provide a functional and convenient replacement for missing teeth.
We recommend consulting with our trusted Mulgrave dentists to determine if dentures are the best tooth replacement option for you.
Getting dentures is a simple and smooth process at Purity Dental:
The process may also vary based on your specific needs and unique condition so it’s important to work closely with our dentist to achieve the best results.
New dentures can feel bulky and awkward during the initial weeks. Mouth sores can develop and your gums may need time to get used to its new dentures. After the first few weeks the mouth will adapt, and practicing eating, speaking, and taking them in and out correctly from your mouth will help.
When eating for the first time, start with soft foods such as soup. Also take small bites and chew on both sides of the mouth to keep even pressure on the denture. During the early stages, taste can be different but this should improve with time. Sometimes it can be hard to judge the temperature of food and drinks too, so be careful.
Eventually, you can eat almost anything! However, you may want to avoid some ‘difficult’ foods that may dislodge or even break your denture.
