With several smile restoration options to choose from, including partial, full and implant-supported dentures, our highly skilled and experienced dental team will be able to find the best fit for your individual needs.

A Denture Style to Fit Every Preference

We help guide patients to choose the style that will accommodate not just their oral health concerns, but also their personal preferences and your lifestyle. Your options at Chatswood Dental Associates include:

  • Full dentures: They are used to replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
  • Partial dentures: This style is used to replace one or more missing teeth and are attached to natural teeth or dental implants for support.
  • Implant-supported dentures: These dentures are anchored to dental implants for increased stability and retention.
  • Immediate dentures: Dentures that are placed immediately after tooth extraction to restore aesthetics and function while the gums heal.

Weighing the Pros and Cons

Patients who are researching the restoration options they have to choose from will often have concerns about comfort, as well as eating and drinking, with dentures.

With proper care and adjustment, most individuals can eat and drink comfortably with them in place. Our team suggests each patient starts with soft foods and gradually reintroduces harder foods as you become accustomed to wearing dentures.

It’s also recommended you avoid sticky or hard foods, like chips, nuts and ice, which may cause damage or dislodge dentures and harm your gums underneath. We advise all of our patients to avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as these habits affect the fit and function of dentures.

When you first start wearing your dentures, you may experience difficulty with speech and facial movement, which is completely normal. Your tongue and muscles have to adjust to the presence of dentures, but most individuals adapt to speaking normally.

Properly fitted dentures also support your facial muscles and maintain aesthetics. If you begin to notice changes to your appearance or discomfort, it could be time for adjustments, or a new set of dentures, depending on how many changes are necessary.

Care Recommendations for Longevity

Through proper care and good oral hygiene habits, and by investing in quality dentures, patients can expect their dentures to have a prolonged lifespan. If they’re well maintained, they can last for several years before they need to be replaced or adjusted.

We suggest patients do the following to keep their dentures in great shape:

  • Remove and rinse dentures after eating to remove food particles and debris.
  • Brush dentures daily with a soft-bristled denture brush and mild soap or denture cleaner.
  • Soak dentures overnight in a denture cleaning solution or water to keep them moist and prevent them from drying out.
  • Schedule regular dental check-ups to assess the fit and condition of your dentures and gums, and make any necessary adjustments or repairs.
Over time, changes in the jawbone and surrounding tissues may affect the fit of your dentures, necessitating adjustments or relining by a dental professional. This is completely normal, and our dental team is happy to help you through that process.
