Our team of experienced dentists is committed to helping you restore your smile and regain optimal oral function.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable oral appliances designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. 

They are an effective solution for individuals who have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury. 

At Smile Perfection, we understand the importance of dentures in restoring your ability to speak, chew, and maintain facial aesthetics.

Denture Services Offered

We offer a range of denture services to address various tooth loss situations:

  • Complete Dentures: If you have lost all your natural teeth, complete dentures are an excellent solution. Our custom complete dentures are designed to fit securely and comfortably, restoring your smile and facial structure.
  • Partial Dentures: For patients with some remaining natural teeth, we offer partial dentures. These dentures are designed to fill the gaps caused by missing teeth, improving both function and aesthetics.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: If you desire enhanced stability and functionality, our implant-supported dentures may be the right choice. By surgically placing dental implants into the jawbone, we can secure your dentures for a more secure and comfortable fit.

Preparation

Preparing for a denture procedure involves a few important steps to ensure a smooth and successful process. Here’s a guide on how to prepare for a denture procedure:

  1. Consultation and Examination: Schedule an initial consultation with your dentist to discuss your denture needs. During this appointment, your dentist will examine your oral health, evaluate your remaining teeth, and determine the most suitable denture solution for you.
  2. Gather Dental Records: If you have any existing dental records, X-rays, or previous denture information from a different dental provider, bring them to your consultation. These records can provide valuable insights and assist your dentist in planning your treatment.
  3. Oral Health Assessment: Your dentist will evaluate the condition of your oral tissues, gums, and any remaining teeth. If any extractions or dental treatments are required before denture placement, your dentist will discuss and schedule them accordingly.
  4. Discussion of Treatment Plan: Your dentist will explain the denture procedure, including the different denture options available to you, their benefits, and the expected timeline for completion. They will also address any concerns or questions you may have.

Procedure

  1. Preparation and Local Anesthesia: Before the denture procedure begins, your dentist may administer local anesthesia to numb the areas where any necessary extractions or oral surgeries will be performed. Local anesthesia helps ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  2. Extractions (if required): If any teeth need to be extracted before denture placement, your dentist will perform the extractions. This step may involve removing decayed or damaged teeth or addressing any existing oral health issues.
  3. Impressions and Measurements: Once the extraction sites have healed, your dentist will take detailed impressions and measurements of your gums, remaining teeth (if any), and jaw structure. These impressions will serve as the foundation for creating custom dentures that fit your mouth accurately.
  4. Bite Registration: Your dentist will record how your upper and lower jaws fit together using bite registration materials. This step helps ensure that your dentures will provide a balanced bite and optimal functionality.
  5. Denture Design and Fabrication: The impressions, measurements, and bite registration information will be sent to a dental laboratory. Skilled technicians will use these details to create custom dentures that are tailored to your unique needs, ensuring a natural look and comfortable fit.
  6. Fitting Appointment: Once your dentures are ready, you will return to the dental office for a fitting appointment. Your dentist will place the dentures in your mouth and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit. This may involve refining the shape, trimming excess material, or adjusting the bite alignment.
  7. Oral Care and Instructions: Your dentist will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your dentures, including cleaning techniques, recommended products, and proper oral hygiene practices. They will also guide you on inserting and removing your dentures correctly for optimal comfort and longevity.
  8. Follow-Up Appointments: After the initial fitting, your dentist may schedule follow-up appointments to evaluate the fit and function of your dentures. Any necessary adjustments or refinements can be made during these visits to ensure your continued comfort and satisfaction.

During the denture procedure, your dentist will prioritize your comfort and use local anesthesia as needed to minimize any pain or discomfort. They will explain the process to you and address any concerns you may have along the way.

Please note that the specific steps and timeline may vary based on your individual needs and the treatment plan recommended by your dentist. It’s essential to consult with your dentist for personalized information and guidance regarding your denture procedure.

Benefits 

Getting dentures offers several benefits that can significantly improve your oral health, functionality, and quality of life. Here are some key benefits of getting dentures:

  1. Restored Chewing and Eating Abilities: Dentures replace missing teeth, allowing you to bite, chew, and eat a wide variety of foods more effectively. This helps improve digestion and ensures proper nutrition.
  2. Enhanced Speech: Missing teeth can affect your speech, causing slurring or mumbling. Dentures restore the natural structure of your mouth, improving your ability to pronounce words and speak clearly.
  3. Improved Aesthetics: Dentures provide a natural-looking set of teeth, enhancing your facial appearance and smile. They can restore lost facial volume, minimize sagging or drooping, and help you regain confidence in your appearance.
  4. Increased Self-Confidence: By restoring your smile and facial aesthetics, dentures can boost your self-esteem and self-confidence. You can feel more comfortable interacting with others in social and professional settings.
  5. Support for Facial Muscles: Missing teeth can lead to sagging facial muscles, which can make you appear older. Dentures provide support to the facial muscles, giving your face a fuller, more youthful appearance.
  6. Prevention of Bone Loss: When teeth are missing, the jawbone can deteriorate over time. Dentures help maintain the bone structure by providing stimulation to the underlying jawbone, preventing further bone loss.
  7. Customized Fit: Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. They are designed to match your natural bite and facial structure, promoting proper alignment and preventing issues with your jaw joints.
  8. Cost-Effective Solution: Dentures offer a cost-effective tooth replacement option compared to other alternatives like dental implants or bridges. They can provide functional and aesthetic benefits at a more affordable price point.
  9. Versatility: Dentures can be customized to replace a few missing teeth (partial dentures) or an entire arch of teeth (full dentures). They can be removable or supported by dental implants for added stability and comfort.
  10. Long-Lasting Solution: With proper care and regular dental check-ups, dentures can provide long-lasting functionality and aesthetic appeal. They can be adjusted, relined, or replaced as needed to maintain optimal performance.

It’s important to note that the specific benefits may vary depending on individual circumstances and the type of dentures chosen. 

Consult with your dentist to understand how dentures can specifically address your dental needs and improve your overall oral health and well-being.

Aftercare

Proper aftercare is essential to ensure the longevity and optimal function of your dentures. Here are some key tips for caring for your dentures:

  • Daily Cleaning: Clean your dentures daily using a soft-bristle toothbrush and non-abrasive denture cleaner. This helps remove plaque, stains, and bacteria, ensuring a healthy oral environment.
  • Handle with Care: Handle your dentures with care to prevent damage. When cleaning or removing them, place a soft towel in the sink or on a counter to cushion any accidental drops.
  • Regular Check-ups: Visit Smile Perfection regularly for check-ups and adjustments. Our dentists will examine your dentures, oral tissues, and overall oral health to ensure everything is functioning optimally.
  • Avoid Harmful Habits: Avoid chewing on hard or sticky foods that can damage your dentures. Additionally, refrain from using your dentures as tools to open packaging or bottles, as this can lead to breakage.

By following these aftercare guidelines and maintaining regular dental visits, you can enjoy the benefits of your dentures for years to come.

Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. They can be either full dentures, which replace all of the teeth in the mouth, or partial dentures, which replace some of the teeth.

There are two main types of dentures:

  • Full dentures: Full dentures replace all of the teeth in the mouth. They are held in place by suction and by the natural tissues of the mouth.
  • Partial dentures: Partial dentures replace some of the teeth in the mouth. They are held in place by clasps that grip the natural teeth, or by a combination of suction and clasps.

There are many benefits to dentures, including:

  • Improved appearance: Dentures can help to improve a person’s appearance by replacing missing teeth. This can make a person look and feel more confident.
  • Improved function: Dentures can help to improve a person’s function by allowing them to eat, speak, and smile more easily. This can improve a person’s quality of life.
  • Improved comfort: Dentures can help to improve a person’s comfort by providing a stable and secure foundation for chewing and speaking. This can help to reduce pain and discomfort.

Dentures require an adjustment period as your mouth gets used to the new appliance. Here are a few key points to keep in mind:

  • Initial discomfort: It is common to experience some initial discomfort, soreness, or increased saliva flow when you first start wearing dentures. This will gradually diminish as your mouth adapts.
  • Speech and chewing: Initially, you may find it challenging to speak clearly or chew certain foods. With practice, your tongue and facial muscles will adjust, improving your speech and ability to eat comfortably.
  • Cleaning and maintenance: Dentures require regular cleaning to maintain oral hygiene. Brushing your dentures daily and soaking them overnight is recommended. It’s also essential to clean your gums, tongue, and any remaining natural teeth.
  • Regular dental check-ups: Regular dental visits are necessary to ensure your dentures fit properly and to address any adjustments or repairs that may be needed.

The time required to make dentures can vary depending on individual factors, such as the type of denture and any necessary preparations. Generally, the process involves several steps that can take a few weeks to complete. These steps include:

  • Initial consultation and examination: This is the first appointment where your dentist will assess your oral health, discuss your needs, and determine the best treatment plan.
  • Impressions and measurements: Dental impressions and measurements are taken to create custom dentures that fit your mouth accurately.
  • Design and fabrication: The dentures are designed and fabricated in a dental laboratory, which typically takes a few weeks.
  • Fitting and adjustments: Once the dentures are ready, you will have a fitting appointment where your dentist will ensure the proper fit and make any necessary adjustments for comfort and functionality.

The timeline for denture fabrication may vary depending on the complexity of your case and the workload of the dental laboratory. 

Your dentist will provide you with a more accurate estimate based on your specific situation.

While dentures offer numerous benefits, they also have some limitations to consider:

  • Chewing efficiency: Compared to natural teeth, dentures may reduce your chewing efficiency. Certain hard or sticky foods may be more challenging to eat comfortably.
  • Slippage and stability: Dentures rely on suction, adhesives, or implants for stability. However, they may still shift or become loose during certain activities like eating or speaking, requiring occasional adjustments.
  • Bone loss and changes in jaw structure: Over time, the absence of natural teeth can lead to bone loss and changes in the shape of your jaw. This may affect the fit of your dentures, requiring periodic adjustments or relining.
  • Maintenance and care: Dentures require regular cleaning and proper maintenance to ensure longevity and prevent oral health issues. Adhering to a consistent oral hygiene routine is crucial.

It is generally recommended to remove your dentures while sleeping. 

Removing your dentures at night allows your gums and oral tissues to rest and recover from the pressure of wearing dentures throughout the day. 

This also gives you an opportunity to clean and properly care for your dentures.

Yes, dentures enable you to eat a wide range of foods. However, it is advisable to start with soft or easily chewable foods when you first get your dentures. 

As you become more accustomed to wearing them, you can gradually reintroduce harder and more challenging foods into your diet.

Proper cleaning and care of your dentures are essential for maintaining oral health and prolonging the life of your dentures. 

Rinse your dentures after meals, brush them daily with a soft-bristle denture brush and non-abrasive denture cleaner, and soak them overnight in a denture cleaning solution. 

Additionally, clean your mouth, gums, and any remaining natural teeth with a soft toothbrush and rinse with mouthwash regularly.

I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. It's either he doesn't know what he's doing or he's chasing to claim more from medical aid. My daughter went there on Monday to take out a wisdom tooth (it was not painful at the time). He injected her on the gums and sent her for x-ray afterwards. After x-ray results that's when he saw that actually he can't take out that tooth but four of them have be removed from the theater. I mean who starts with injection before x-rays 🤷? You can't start with the last procedure and end with the first one. If he started with what comes first he could have seen that there was no need to inject the poor child. So he just caused my daughter an unnecessary pain cos the tooth was not taken out. He injected her for fun nje. So if you love yourself, don't even try going there. On top of that, when I enquired about this, he was so rude to the core!!!! And unprofessional at the same time. I will book my daughter to someone who knows her/his story,.
