Affordable Dentures in Dunedin

Dentures have been around for a while, but what exists today is nothing like the ones of yesteryear. With the benefit of modern technology, dentures are a more effective and cost-efficient way than ever to restore missing teeth.

The Benefits of Dentures

Dentures can be life-savers to fix smiles affected by missing teeth. Unlike dental implants and bridges which are dependent on healthy supporting teeth and gums, the majority of patients are fitting candidates for restorative care through dentures. Dentures are also more likely to be partially covered by insurance, dependent on your benefits package. With a lower cost and less frequent dental visits, they’re an extraordinarily accessible way to give you back your smile.

Full vs Partial Dentures

Depending on your situation, a full or partial set of dentures may be recommended. Full dentures are used to replace full rows of missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. If only a few teeth are missing, partial dentures are suggested to fill in the gaps.

Procedure Expectations

Your treatment will always begin with a consultation. We’ll assess the health of your teeth, gums, and develop a plan that fits your needs and budget. In the preparation stage, an impression of your teeth is made. In some cases, tooth extraction is necessary for the longevity and fit of your dentures. Once the production of the new dentures is completed, we’ll examine your fit for comfort, ready to make any adjustments needed.

Maintaining Your Dentures

Just like natural teeth, dentures should be cleaned daily for longevity and your oral health. We suggest using a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush them with a denture cleaner daily and allowing them to soak in water or a dental cleaning solution overnight. It’s important to gently brush your gums, tongue, and palette to stop bacteria from spreading after removal.

If your denture fit is loose or uncomfortable, reach out to us to assist with adjustments before it can cause sores or frustration. As your gums and face gradually change, a fit adjustment is a normal step to take for healthy use.
