Dentures Singapore

If you are missing multiple teeth, dentures can be a great option to restore your smile and functionality.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. They are can be a great option for people who are missing teeth. They can help to improve a person’s smile, speech, and ability to chew. Dentures can also help to prevent facial bone loss. They are removable and can be taken out and put back in at will. Dentures can be made from a variety of materials, including acrylic, porcelain, and metal.

If you are considering dentures, it is important to talk to our dentist to discuss the best option for you. They can help you to choose the right type of denture, material, and fit.

Will new dentures be comfortable?

New dentures may feel strange at first. This is because your mouth needs time to adjust to the new shape. It is important to wear your dentures as much as possible to help your mouth adjust.

The lower denture usually takes more time to adjust to than the upper denture because it is held in place by the tongue and cheeks.

The dentures treatment procedure

Here are the steps involved in getting dentures:

  1. Examination and consultation: Your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth to determine if dentures are the right option for you. They will also discuss your needs and expectations.
  2. Impressions: Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth to create a mold for your dentures. This is done using a soft, pliable material that is pressed against your gums.
  3. Lab work: Your impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory, where a technician will create your dentures. This process can take several weeks.
  4. Try-in: Once your dentures are created, you will return to your dentist for a try-in. This is an opportunity to make sure the fit is correct and that you are happy with the appearance of your dentures.
  5. Adjustments: If necessary, your dentist will make adjustments to your dentures before they are permanently fitted.

Is it better to extract all my teeth and make a denture?

No, it is not advisable to extract all your teeth and make a denture. It is always better to save as many teeth as possible. Here are some of the reasons why:

  • Prevention of bone loss: Natural teeth help to keep your jawbone strong and healthy. When teeth are extracted, the jawbone can start to deteriorate. This can lead to problems with chewing, speaking, and swallowing.
  • Improved chewing ability: Natural teeth can help you to chew food more effectively. This can help you to get the nutrients you need from your food and can also help to prevent digestive problems.
  • Improved speech: Natural teeth help to support the tongue and other muscles in the mouth. This can help you to speak more clearly and can also help to prevent problems with swallowing.
  • Improved appearance: Natural teeth can help to improve your overall appearance. A full set of healthy teeth can make you look and feel more confident.

If you are considering having your teeth extracted, it is important to talk to your dentist about the risks and benefits of doing so. There may be other options available to you that can help you to keep your teeth.

 

How long do I have to wait to have a new denture after extractions?

You will need to wait at least 6 to 8 weeks after your teeth have been extracted before you can get a new denture. This is because your gums need time to heal and shrink. If you get a denture too soon, it may not fit properly and could cause pain and discomfort.

During this time, your dentist may give you temporary dentures to wear. These dentures will help to keep your gums from shrinking too much and will make it easier for you to eat and speak.

Benefits Of Dentures 

If you are missing teeth, dentures can be a great option for you. They can improve your appearance, speech, confidence, oral health, and overall quality of life.

Here are some of the benefits of dentures:

  • Improved Speech. Dentures can help improve your speech by filling in the gaps in your mouth and providing a more natural platform for your tongue to rest on. This can help you pronounce words more clearly and make it easier for others to understand you.
  • Increased Confidence. Dentures can help you feel more confident and comfortable in social situations. When you have a full set of teeth, you look and feel your best. This can lead to increased self-esteem and a more positive outlook on life.
  • Better Oral Health. Dentures can help improve your oral health by preventing the teeth from shifting and crowding. This can help reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
  • Reduced Pain. Dentures can help reduce pain in the jaw and teeth. This is because they provide support for the jaw and help to distribute the force of chewing evenly.
  • More Affordable. Dentures are often more affordable than other options for replacing missing teeth, such as dental implants.

Aftercare

What precautions should we take when using dentures?

Dentures are fragile. Refrain from using harsh abrasive cleaners as they may scratch the surface. Never sterilize your dentures in boiling water. Keep them safely if you remove them as they may break if dropped.

  • Clean your dentures regularly. This will help to remove food particles and bacteria that can cause bad breath and gum irritation.
  • Rinse your dentures after each use. This will help to remove any food particles that may be stuck to your dentures.
  • Soak your dentures overnight. Soaking your dentures in a denture cleaning solution will help to remove any bacteria that may be growing on your dentures.
  • See your dentist for regular checkups. Your dentist can make sure your dentures fit properly and that your gums are healthy.

By following these tips, you can help reduce the side effects of dentures and enjoy a more comfortable and confident life with your new smile.

What to do if dentures are loose?

Dentures usually need to be altered from time to time. That’s because the gums and bone supporting the dentures change over time. Thus your dentures may not fit well and become loose.

  • The dentures may need to be adjusted or redone. Your dentist can adjust your dentures to make them fit more snugly. If your dentures are very loose, your dentist may need to make a new set.
  • Use a denture adhesive. Denture adhesives can help to keep your dentures in place. However, it is important to use a denture adhesive that is specifically designed for dentures. Some denture adhesives can be harmful to your gums.
  • Get dental implants. Dental implants are a permanent solution for loose dentures. Dental implants are small titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the implants are in place, a denture can be attached to them.

If you have any questions about loose dentures, please talk to our dentist. They can help you determine the best course of action for you.
