Dentures Clinic in Melbourne
Are you a Denture Wearer?
As a leading denture clinic in Melbourne, we have an experienced team of dentists that have helped countless patients achieve the smile of their dreams. Traditional dentures are recommended by professional dentists when there are too many teeth missing to place a bridge and implants are not suitable. They attach to the remaining teeth in the mouth via suction to the gums or are supported with dental implants. Dentures can be made for missing teeth in different parts of your mouth and are also suitable for people who have no teeth at all.
Dentures should be removed at night and placed in a glass of water. It is important that the dentures are kept wet all night, as the material from which they are made of will change shape if they dry out and therefore affect their fit. This gives your mouth time to be exposed to your natural saliva and your gums a chance to ‘breathe.’
If you wear dentures and do or do not have any natural teeth, dental check-ups with your denture clinic are still very important. Mouth cancers can occur under your dentures and go unnoticed for years. We can ensure your mouth is in optimal oral health beneath your dentures.
Generally, there are two options for framework – metal and acrylic – although all teeth are made of acrylic, they look similar to natural teeth.
Dentures also require special care and maintenance to ensure the gums and soft tissues stay healthy.
At Grandstand Dental Care, we can provide you with many denture options as well as alternatives to improve your maximum bite force as chewing efficiency is an important prerequisite for an adequate nutrition. From quality new dentures, to partial dentures, to full dentures, our team are ready to help you make your beautiful smile even better.
Is Your Denture Loose?
Poor ill-fitting dentures present a significant oral disability, which often leads to a gradual deterioration of an individual’s dietary habits and in avoiding certain foods that are hard or difficult to eat.
A traditional denture can be supported with implants. An overdenture is a great solution for someone that already has dentures.
A secure denture provides freedom from clicking and movements of dentures. No more glue or denture adhesives!
Dental Implants will allow you to secure your denture to speak and eat with confidence.
A removable overdenture has implants under the denture; it can replace lost gum and bone and can vastly improve facial appearance. Cost of an overdenture is usually a cheaper option as it can often be added to existing dentures. At Grandstand Dental Care in Melbourne, we can provide various solutions to over dentures such as:
a. Implant retained and gum supported over-denture
b. Bar retained and implant retained over-denture
c. Fixed implant retained prosthesis
Advantages of overdentures
Although each procedure varies subtly, there are some basic guidelines to treat cavities, and they are followed by all dental professionals.
- Promotes better digestion: Removable dentures can move around in your mouth, reducing your ability to eat certain foods. Improved stability in over dentures allows you to chew food more thoroughly, helping your stomach break down food more efficiently and absorb more nutrients.
- Maintains bone health: Implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep your bone healthy and intact. Dental implants will continue to stimulate your jawbone when you eat/chew, reducing the resorption (shrinkage) process that occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants like natural teeth supports the sinus floor level and prevents the sinus “dropping” into the oral cavity space.
- Provides improved lip and cheek support and maintains your facial features and structure: Missing teeth and unstable dentures cause the jawbone to be under functioning and under loaded when chewing resulting in bone resorption. This gradual loss in bone volume results in loss of facial height causing the distance between your nose and your chin to shrink. This shrinking can make your face look “sunken-in” and prematurely aged.
- Greater comfort and chewing ability: Overdentures reduce unnecessary movement during chewing and talking. Also, dental implants preserve the bone so the nerves are maintained where they are. Gradual bone resorption from reduced function causes the nerves to lie above the jawbone resulting in impingement from the dentures and causing pain.
Rejuvenate your smile with the professional Denture Melbourne
Losing several (or even one tooth) can blemish any beautiful smile. However, thanks to advancements in the field of dentistry, losing teeth isn’t a permanent problem. At Grand Stand Dental Care, we can correct these issues and restore any smile.
Removable dentures tend to move around in the mouth. That’s why we recommend overdentures that are more stable and provide a more natural feel while allowing you to smile attractively.
We offer multiple options of dentures and will help you find the one that fits your needs and provide comfort.
