What Are Dentures?
Dentures consist of artificial teeth set in a gum-coloured base made of acrylic or other materials. They are custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth comfortably and securely. They are an effective solution for individuals who have lost some or all of their natural teeth, allowing them to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Different Types of Dentures
Dentures come in several types, each designed to address specific dental needs and conditions. The main types of dentures include:
Also known as full dentures, these are used when all natural teeth in either the upper or lower arch are missing. Complete dentures consist of a full set of artificial teeth attached to a gum-coloured acrylic base. They are custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth and provide full oral restoration.
Partial dentures are used when only some natural teeth are missing. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a metal or acrylic framework that clasps onto the remaining natural teeth, helping to fill in the gaps.
Immediate dentures are typically provided on the same day that remaining natural teeth are extracted. These dentures allow patients to have teeth immediately after tooth removal. However, adjustments and relining are often necessary as the gums heal and change shape.
Overdentures are designed to fit over a few remaining natural teeth or dental implants. They offer enhanced stability and retention compared to traditional complete dentures.
These dentures are secured in place by dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone. Implant-supported dentures offer exceptional stability, comfort, and function, making them an attractive option for many patients.
Also known as implant-retained dentures, snap-in dentures attach to dental implants using snaps or ball attachments, providing a secure and stable fit.
This is a specific type of implant-supported denture that uses four dental implants to secure a full arch of teeth. All-on-4 dentures offer excellent stability and are often used as an alternative to traditional complete dentures.

What Happens During a Denture Consultation?
During a denture consultation, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation and discussion of your specific dental needs and preferences. Here’s what typically happens during a denture consultation:
Your dentist will start by reviewing your medical and dental history. This includes any existing medical conditions, medications you may be taking, and prior dental treatments.
A thorough oral examination is conducted to assess the condition of your gums, any remaining natural teeth, and the overall health of your mouth. This examination helps determine the type of denture that best suits your needs.
If you are getting dentures, impressions or digital scans of your mouth may be taken to create custom dentures that fit comfortably and securely.
Your dentist will discuss the different types of dentures available (complete, partial, implant-supported, etc.) and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each. They will consider your preferences, lifestyle, and budget when recommending the most suitable option.
If applicable, you will have the opportunity to choose the colour and shape of your denture teeth to achieve a natural appearance.
Based on the examination and your preferences, your dentist will create a personalised treatment plan that outlines the steps involved in getting your dentures, including any necessary extractions or preparatory procedures.
The financial aspect of the treatment will be discussed, including the estimated cost of the dentures, any associated procedures, and whether your dental insurance covers any of the expenses.
If you decide to proceed with dentures, the next steps, including appointments for impressions, fittings, and placement, will be scheduled.
