Dentures

FULL AND PARTIAL UPPER AND LOWER DENTURES

  • Acrylic Dentures

  • Chrome Cobalt Dentures

  • Thermo-sense Dentures

Acrylic dentures are made from high grade dental acrylic and are a more cost-effective way of replacing some missing teeth. Acrylic dentures are often a little bulkier and not as strong as other types of dentures.

Cobalt chrome dentures are generally a more permanent option than the acrylic; they are far less bulky whilst stronger to help resist the forces of day to day use, making them a far superior option than their acrylic cousin.

Thermo-sense dentures can offer great aesthetic options. The thermo-plastic resin that is used to manufacture these dentures allows a partial denture to be made without metal clasps. These dentures can only be used in certain cases, so an assessment is required to see if they are a suitable option for the patient.

Repairs

DENTURE REPAIR, ADJUSTMENT, AND MODIFICATION

  • Repairs

  • Adjustments

  • Additions

  • Cleaning

There are lots of reasons a denture might break but, in most cases, we are able to repair them. Sometimes dentures can break because they don’t fit properly; if this is the case, we may need to do further maintenance to your denture to ensure this doesn’t happen again. It is highly advisable to avoid the use of super glue on dentures as it is poisonous and may also increase the cost of the repair to your denture.

If you currently have a partial denture and you lose another natural tooth, in most cases we are able to add another tooth to the existing denture. This will require an impression to be done and we will usually have your denture ready again that same day.

Sometimes when you receive new dentures they may require adjusting to fine-tune the base of the denture to fit your gums. We are also able to adjust older dentures if they are hurting your mouth.

To keep your dentures looking like new we offer a professional denture cleaning service. Additionally we carry a range of denture care products in the clinic from denture soaking solutions, adhesives and denture tooth brushes.

Immediate Dentures

FULL DENTURES MADE PRIOR TO EXTRACTION

In some cases it just isn’t an option to keep your natural teeth and they may need to be extracted by the dentist. An “immediate” denture can be made prior to natural teeth being extracted, allowing the patient to have dentures straight after natural teeth are removed.

We make the denture at the clinic and the patient collects their denture prior to visiting the dentist for the extractions. The dentist removes the natural teeth and inserts the denture at the same appointment.

Denture Relines

SAME DAY RELINING TO IMPROVE COMFORT

Unfortunately when natural teeth are removed from the mouth the gums and bone start to shrink and change. This is unavoidable and will happen for everyone whom is missing natural teeth. As your gums shrink your dentures will become loose and may even hurt you when eating. To fix this problem it is necessary to have your dentures refitted, and that is called a “reline” or “rebase”.

We can reline dentures in the same day, therefore minimising the time you are without your dentures. We also offer the option of soft relines which can allow for a much more comfortable lower denture; as the name implies this reline is soft and spongy, therefore taking a lot of pressure off the gums for those people who suffer from constant pain and ulcers.

Denture Clinic FAQ

NORTHERN RIVERS DENTURE SPECIALISTS

Here are some commonly asked questions. If you don’t find your answer here, please call us on 6624 4442 or send us a message HERE.

.

What are dentures?2020-05-20T12:31:30+10:00

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding gums. There are two types of dentures available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. You can also be given an immediate denture. These dentures are used when you are having teeth removed. They are placed into the mouth as soon as the tooth/teeth are extracted so you never have to be without teeth.

How do I keep my new dentures clean?2020-05-20T12:32:36+10:00

When your dentures are issued, you will be provided with a starter pack which includes a daily denture care information leaflet. The best way to clean your dentures is either holding them over a sink filled with water or over a folded towel and brush them with soap and water. Never use regular toothpaste as it will damage your dentures.

What will my dentures cost?2020-05-20T12:33:24+10:00

The cost of a complete or partial denture depends on the type of denture you need and want. All dentures are not created equal; if you look for the lowest price remember: you’ll get what you pay for. At your initial consultation, you will be provided with a quote before any further treatment is provided.

How long will it take to get used to my dentures?2020-05-20T12:32:07+10:00

It will take some time to get used to your dentures and everyone is different. The muscles of your cheeks and tongue need to learn to keep your dentures in place. It will become more comfortable with time but early on you may have some soreness or irritation which will settle once you have adjusted to your new dentures.

Will dentures change the way I speak?2020-05-20T12:33:02+10:00

Pronouncing certain words can require practice. Your tongue and the muscle in the floor of the mouth require time and practice to adapt to any changes in tooth positioning and extensions that have been made with the new dentures. Reading out loud and repeating difficult words will help in overcoming any minor speech problems.

Are any financial rebates available?2020-05-20T12:33:50+10:00

Please contact your private health fund regarding any benefits you may be eligible for. We are a members’ choice preferred provider for Medibank Private. We can also provide service under the Department of Veterans Affairs arrangements for gold card holders. We deploy the HICAPS healthcare claims and payments solution for fast on-the-spot turnaround of all claims and transactions.
