Are full dentures the right choice for me?

If you have lost your permanent teeth for any reason – an accident, operation or tooth decay – full dentures may be an option for you.

At the Denture Clinic, we custom-make full dentures to help a myriad of issues in the mouth. Full dentures are man-made prosthetic appliances designed to replace teeth, bone or tissue and allow you to retain the function of your mouth. If missing teeth are not replaced, this can cause the muscles in your face to sag over time. Dentures can restore the natural contour of your face, protect your gums and can allow you to speak more easily after losing teeth, bone or tissue.

How do full dentures work?

Full dentures replace the teeth on either your upper or lower jaw and are supported by the surrounding gums and tissue of the mouth.

Full upper dentures cover the entire roof of your mouth and attach by suction. Full lower dentures are kept in place by the gums and muscles of your mouth. All of our dentures are carefully fitted to the shape of your mouth to ensure they are comfortable and practical to wear.

Benefits of full dentures

  • Replace missing teeth to restore your smile and confidence
  • Maintain the natural contours of your face
  • Help you talk more easily after losing teeth, bone or tissue
  • Protect your gums and bone structure from further decline
  • Advanced techniques for natural-looking smiles
  • Long-lasting solution with proper care and maintenance
  • Must be relined every four years to extend the lifespan and comfort

How long do full dentures last?

Full dentures are long-lasting. Their lifespan depends on their function and your mouth; however, full dentures can last for approximately 6-8 years with proper care.

Just like a reliable car, your dentures need regular check-ups and maintenance to keep them in the best shape possible. The dentures themselves must be removed and thoroughly cleaned daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush, and your mouth needs to be brushed morning and night. 

Once every three to four years, your full dentures will need ‘relining’. This is a process which involves the area of the denture which meets your gums (the base of the denture) being resurfaced with new material so that it fits comfortably along your soft tissue and gums. Relining extends the lifespan of the denture, makes it more comfortable and prevents damage to your gums. It can also help to reduce the likelihood of any complications that may arise from infection or other issues.
