Temporary Dentures Mandurah

If you are missing a few teeth may be due to an accident or a disease or condition that is causing you to lose teeth, you can always find a solution in using dentures. Dentures are the perfect solution as they hold the facial muscles and they prevent the occurrence of any other complication as you will find discussed in this page.


Dentures come in three options-the the full/complete dentures, the partial dentures, and the temporary dentures. The partial dentures are a better option if you have a few strong teeth still in place on your jaws. Partial dentures are much preferred and could be prescribed by your dentist after they have found it suitable for your condition.

They are a better option in some cases because they are not as invasive as some solutions and they are inexpensive treatments for your missing teeth. They are also less demanding in terms of maintenance needed and they are also easy to get used to while they are on your jaws.


Partial dentures need gentle care and frequent cleaning, therefore once you get your new partial dentures you will need to do the following;


• You need to brush your denture daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush.
• At times when you are not using it, you can keep them moist by soaking them in a denture solution.
• Always take great care of your partial dentures, do not drop them as they may break.
• The partial denture doesn’t do well in hot temperatures therefore avoid exposing them to high temperatures as it could cause warping.

What are Partial dentures?

A partial denture is important for replacing one or several teeth that are missing or that have fallen. They are used when the missing teeth are just but a handful, not too many lost teeth-these will be solved by getting a full or complete denture.


The partial dentures are removable artificial teeth that are put in place to cover the space left when you lose some few teeth or even just a single tooth. They are designed in a manner that you could easily mistake them for natural genuine teeth. Most of the partial dentures are made from a mixture of both acrylic and metal.


The partial dentures are manufactured from a combination of acrylic and metal and this helps to be effective when in use for the lost teeth on your jaw. This guarantees that they not only give you that smile you can’t get from an open mouth with some missing teeth, but they are also quite strong. The strength of the partial dentures is guaranteed by the materials that they are manufactured. Strength is important because it is important for the chewing of food and also important for some sounds you utter when speaking.


Some partial dentures are manufactured exclusively from acrylic, but they are not the best to work with. They are not that durable and not the best when it comes to their structure composition. However, they are quite affordable if you are working with a strict budget. They are the best option for a situation especially when you simply want to use them for a mere part of your day and also probably for just a few weeks before you get another effective solution.

Who needs partial dentures?

There are a variety of people who may want to use dentures, notably those who have lost some teeth. However, partial dentures may not be the best solution for some instances and would not work to solve your problem inexpensively. They are the best when you have just lost a few of your teeth both from your upper jaw or lower jaw.


Dentures play an important role in your teeth unlike what many would presume. You would only realize their importance when you are missing a few teeth and you don’t have the partial dentures in place. You see, if you don’t use the partial dentures the bite pressure shifts within your mouth-and this makes the existing teeth try and cover the gap left by the missing teeth. This change is bad for your physical appearance and may lead to you being less confident with the way you look.


What the partial dentures do is that they keep the underlying structure of your mouth intact. This is both for the gums and the relevant facial muscles-those around the mouth and jaws. Similarly, it stops the shifting of your existing teeth to cover the gaps left behind by the lost teeth, while giving you that much-needed confidence and the perfect smile.


You may also have to get the partial dentures after the dentist you see says that the other teeth on your jaws-both upper and lower are in perfect condition. You would not want to lose your natural teeth for any reason and that is why the partial dentures will be a suitable solution for your situation.

Does insurance cover partial dentures?

Health insurance covers may cover partial dentures while some of them may not. The general health insurance policy may only cover the general procedures like getting a checkup or even having an x-ray conducted to check for any complications on your teeth by the doctor.


On the other hand, the major dental cover ranges from in-depth dental processes such as having dentures installed, endodontic services, getting crowns, and bridges on your teeth. While many policies may offer a cover for the upper denture or the lower denture, this is limited to only one for each situation. You will want to consult your insurance provider to get a comprehensive and detailed definition of the range that your private health policy covers.


However, it is recommended that you consult your health insurance provider and ask them if they cover the installation of the partial denture before you proceed to get them. The health insurance will come to your rescue especially if you are not in a position to purchase the partial dentures on your own.

Dentures can change your appearance, which may be a good thing. If we are speaking of full dentures a well-made set will restore your face to its proper proportions.

Denture teeth are supposed to simulate a natural smile. There are newer denture teeth made out of materials that look more natural, rather than the denture teeth that many think about that appear placed in a perfect however artificial appearing arrangement.

Dentures need to have the correct height so that your face appears normal. Just think of someone taking out their dentures and the sunken look. Your lip support is based on how the teeth are set in the arch and the speech will change if the teeth are placed incorrectly.

Patients are provided with a preview prior to finalizing the dentures allowing changes to the setup. So the answer is yes, dentures can change your appearance and hopefully you will enjoy the new look.

 

Wearing dentures might feel strange at first. Most people take a few months to get used to how they feel. At first, you might need follow-up appointments so we can make adjustments. After you have become used to the dentures, you’ll still need an appointment with us, at least yearly, to check they fit correctly.

You’ll need to learn how to take care of your dentures daily. The Australian Dental Prosthetist Association recommends brushing your dentures nightly with regular hand soap and lukewarm water, using a soft-bristle toothbrush.

You should also brush your gums and tongue each day with a soft-bristle toothbrush, with or without toothpaste. It’s also a good idea to rinse your mouth with salty water.

Most patients need to learn how to use dentures properly and as a result, it takes a little time to get used to them. After a while, you should be able to eat fairly normally, but it may take more time to get comfortable with harder foods or sticky foods.

Using a small amount of denture adhesive (no more than three or four pea-sized dabs on each denture) may help stabilize the dentures and help hold them in place while you learn how to get comfortable with them and may make the learning process easier.

Dentures and chewing gum do not usually work well together, no matter which brand of chewing gum you decide to try. The gum typically sticks to the acrylic plastic in the denture and may break a seal on the dentures, which will loosen them as a result. Gum may remain stuck to the denture and eventually harden and discolor. Ultimately, if you wear dentures, you should avoid chewing gum.

Dentures are designed in order to not be noticed. Your dentures will help improve your appearance by giving your lips the support that will improve your facial appearance and your confidence. In fact, they improve your natural appearance so much that one of the primary signs you need new dentures is noticeable sagging of the muscles in your face, a protruding lower jaw, or extensive wrinkling around your mouth . 

Both your natural teeth and dentures need to be rinsed and brushed after every meal. Using a denture brush and a little soap and water, gently brush your dentures using the techniques shown to you by your dental hygienist. After cleaning, gently lay your denture down on a small hand towel next to your basin and let them dry overnight. There is no need to keep your dentures in a glass of water, which was once the protocol.

If you’re unable to brush your dentures, for example, if you’re away from home, make sure you at least rinse your dentures – and your mouth – with water, which will help to keep any bacteria at bay.

Our teams are highly trained in the art of color and shade matching. Assuming it is a new partial denture, they can work to produce a match to your remaining natural teeth. If it is an existing partial denture, we would recommend having a new one made, as the expense would be about the same to recolor the old one.

The partial dentures may cost not less than $1350-this is either for the lower denture or the upper denture. However, there are more expensive partial dentures that are much more sophisticated and which will be quite costly than the ordinary type of dentures. You should always work closely with your dentist so that you choose the most ideal type of partial denture to work with.
