Our dentists at Holistic Dental Melbourne CBD can provide patients with new full dentures that replace either the upper or lower jaw or even both. Our dentures are designed to create a natural appearance for you using high impact acrylic for superior fit and strength.
Generally, this would involve multiple appointments to make moulds, trials, denture fit ins and finally periodic reviews to help you cope up with your new dentures. We value your suggestions and try to implement it as much as we can. Few of you, many need to undergo gum smoothening procedure before we make moulds for your denture work. Adapting to a new denture would be quick, but would need a little effort, like adapting to new footwear or learning to ride a bicycle. We are there to support you during this journey.
Implant retained overdenture
Are your dentures loose and dropping out from your mouth? If so, implant retained dentures could be one of your option.
Our Dentists at Holistic Dental Melbourne CBD have vast experience to provide you with suitable options. Firstly, diagnostic scans and tests will need to be done to assess your suitability for dental implants, followed by, surgical procedure for placement of implants. Lastly, our team a will create a denture that will provide you confidence, aesthetics and function that you deserve.
Compared to traditional dentures, Implant retained dentures would be less bulkier, allowing additional tongue space & to add to that, the upper palate would be free from acrylic giving you comfort and allowing you to feel the texture & temperature of food .
If you’re missing just one or a few teeth, a partial denture is one of your option – less expensive than implants – that will help you bite & chew again. Plus, a partial denture will make it look like you have a full set of teeth. Your partial denture serves not only to improve your smile but also aid in eating, talking and protects remaining teeth from drifting or over-erupting into the missing tooth space.
Chrome Partial Dentures
These dentures are the superior type of partial denture due to its strength from the chrome framework & comfort fit. A custom design framework is constructed with acrylic teeth to replace your missing teeth. This too would involve multiple visits, involving making of moulds, teeth recontouring, trials and finally the fit in.
Acrylic dentures are usually the most cost effective and can be made within a short period of time. Other advantages are that they can be relined, added to (in case you lose any more natural teeth) and can be used as a temporary denture before dental implants, or whilst waiting for chrome dentures.
Some of the disadvantages are that the acrylic denture base is slightly weaker and tend to break frequently, especially those made for the lower jaw. In order to compensate, the acrylic is usually bulked up, which can take a little extra time to get used to.
Valplast Flexible Partial Dentures
We can provide you with a partial denture without metal clasps that is great for hiding any traces of a denture in your mouth. These dentures are flexible & stay in your mouth by slight pressure against your natural teeth.
