Dentures are artificial teeth specially moulded for your jaw to replace any natural teeth that have been lost. The types of dentures that are most common are either traditional complete dentures or partial dentures. You may have also heard about removable partial dentures, non-removable implant dentures, a complete denture set, immediate dentures, and dental implants. After a consultation, your dentist will advise you on what type of dentures will be the best fix for your missing teeth. 

Although dentures are most commonly associated with the elderly, this form of cosmetic dentistry is useful for more than just replacing teeth that have been lost thanks to old age. You could be missing teeth due to tooth decay, an accident, or even disease and dentures may be the perfect solution for your dental problems. Other solutions include: a dental implant, veneers, or crowns.

Why choose dentures to replace your missing teeth?

  • CONFIDENCE: Dentures change your confidence for the better. Wearing dentures could give you the confidence boost that you’ve been looking for. When you are missing teeth, you may feel self conscious about the look of your smile, how you look when you eat and talk, and even about how you pronounce words. Dentures can give you your smile and your confidence back.
  • TEETH REPLACEMENT: Replacing missing teeth with dentures means your facial muscles are supported. When you lose teeth, over time the shape and movement of your face might change thanks to your teeth shifting. As dentures rest against the inside of your cheeks, a full denture or even a partial denture fills out any empty space that may be causing your facial muscles to be unstable.
  • COSMETIC: Modern technology has allowed cosmetic dentistry to make leaps and bounds into the future. Thanks to advances in technology, no matter what types of dentures you require, you will always be given dentures that are custom tailored for your mouth to achieve maximum comfort. 
  • CLEANING: Dentures are also easy to clean. Thanks to their ability to be removed, a patient has the ability to ensure that their false teeth, their gums, palates, and any possible existing teeth, are all bacteria free. Dentures help promote great oral health. 
  • REDUCED HEALTH ISSUES: By choosing dentures you also reduce the risk of further oral health issues.


Denture clinics all follow a similar process when planning to fit a new denture on a patient. To put it simply, the process includes taking an impression or mould of your mouth, which is then used to create custom-fit dentures that fit perfectly to replace missing teeth. Through regular dental check ups, we adjust and tweak the fit as required, making sure your dentures offer a comfortable and reliable fit.

The process of having dentures made and fitted at a dentures clinic depends first on whether you have remaining natural teeth. If you have existing teeth still in your upper or lower jaw, you will be given a partial denture to help keep your natural teeth in place to ensure they won’t shift or move over time and cause problems to your bone structure. If you have no remaining teeth, you will be given a complete full denture to replace all the natural teeth that you’ve lost. If you need dentures quickly, you will be given immediate dentures, or temporary removable dentures, which will be provided immediately after your natural teeth are extracted. 

Once your dentist has decided whether you require full conventional dentures for a complete set of replacement teeth, or temporary dentures to replace one or more teeth, the process becomes mostly straightforward.

Step 1:

Your dentist takes the mould/ impression of your jaw and mouth to gauge how your false teeth should look

Step 2:

The mould is placed into an articulator to attach your chosen teeth and carve wax to replicate real gum tissues

Step 3:

The dentures are placed in a flask with the intent of melting the wax away. Acrylic is then injected and the dentures are cured

Step 4:

The plaster mould is removed and the technician trims and polishes the dentures so that they’re ready to go back to your dentist for your fitting

Overwhelmed thinking about how to provide proper care for your new dentures? Don’t worry, we’re here to help you!

Keeping your mouth healthy when you are wearing dentures is super important. Whether you have full dentures, partial dentures, or dental implants, a healthy mouth can protect you from unnecessary additions to the dentures, bacteria, and other oral health problems.


How to care for your false teeth: 

  • Cleaning dentures daily is vital. After removing your dentures from your mouth, gently brush your dentures and gums. Brush them twice a day to remove food particles and bacteria. However, because denture teeth have a different make-up, use non-abrasive toothpaste and a special denture brush if one is provided by your dentist. 
  • Place your clean dentures into normal water or a mild denture cleaner when they are removed to keep them moist. If you are instructed to use a mild denture cleaner, follow the manufacturer’s specifications to ensure you follow proper care procedures. 
  • Avoid using hot water when you need to rinse dentures or when keeping them moist. 
  • Brush your gums, teeth, and palate before you place your dentures back in your mouth and each time you remove your dentures.
  • Only eat soft foods while you are getting used to your dentures. When you have more confidence, and after ensuring you are following the advice of your dentist, you can venture into other foods that you would normally consume.
  • Contact your dentist for help or advice if needed!


Do you need denture repairs thanks to chipping or discolouration? Have your dentures become unstable despite denture adhesive? Contact Floss Family Dental to book an appointment with one of our experienced dentists. 

Over time, dentures can become unstable due to loss of bone. If this happens, implant supported dentures are an option. To find out more about the benefits of an implant retained denture, click here.
