Teeth Replacement - Complete Dentures

What are dentures made of?

The base of the denture is made of gum-coloured acrylic. The teeth are made of acrylic or porcelain.

Will dentures ever need to be replaced?

Dentures are unlikely to last a lifetime. All mouths change with age. When gums and bone recede or shrink the dentures become loose and ill fitting. This makes eating difficult. Food collects under loose dentures and can cause ulcers of the gums and palate. The clicking sound of dentures indicates that they have lost their firmness. Teeth may eventually wear down and become discoloured and unattractive. Regular checks by the dentist will indicate when dentures need to be relined or remade.

What is an over-denture?

Dentures that are made over implants and teeth are called over-dentures. They greatly improve the firmness of the dentures, and prevent shrinkage of the ridges. "Dentures anchored by implants result in a significantly better chewing performance than conventional removable dentures." U.S. Surgeon General's Report. Dentists sometimes save some teeth rather than extract all of them. This is to preserve the ridges and to improve the firmness of the denture that will fit over them. These retained teeth usually need root canal treatment, and may have gold crowns or covers placed over them.

Will it be difficult to get used to new dentures?
It is not uncommon for dentures to look and feel good right from the start. Some adjustment and learning will be necessary before chewing is comfortable.
- Initial difficulties with speech are usually short lived.
- Tell your dentist if you have problems with "s" sounds or with "whistling".
- Painful red spots caused by pressure of the denture may appear.
- A denture ease will solve the problem.
Can I expect my dentures to fit firmly in my mouth?
There may be initial problems with stability and firmness, but these can be solved. Upper dentures are held in place by suction and are always more stable than lower dentures. Lower dentures rest on the gums and are mainly kept in position by gravity. Some suction is possible. Very small adjustments to dentures can make remarkable improvements. A denture can be clipped onto a few well-placed titanium implants to improve stability.
How can I take care of dentures?
Dentures should be cleaned regularly and thoroughly every day. This will prevent the build up of plaque , stains and food debris that can stick to the dentures.
- Dentures should be cleaned with a soft nailbrush or a special denture brush, using a mild soap or a special denture tooth paste. This will freshen the denture.
- Brush all over the denture, not only around the teeth.
- Always brush over a basin filled with water or over a damp cloth, as dentures are easily broken if dropped on a hard surface.
- Chemical denture cleaners are also available. These include soaking solutions, creams or pastes.
It is important not to let the dentures dry out when they are out of the mouth as they may change their shape. Keep them in water or in a soaking cleanser solution. Your dentist may advise you to give the mouth tissues a rest by taking your dentures out at night before going to bed.
