Options to Replace Missing Teeth

Are you looking for a permanent solution to replace missing teeth? 

Losing your natural teeth, no matter what the cause is – accident, trauma, tooth decay, or gum disease, can lead to a loss of self-confidence. It makes you feel shy, especially when you need to talk to a person or an audience where you’d be too conscious of the missing teeth.

Instead of cowering and losing opportunities, counter the problem by going to the dentist. With the advanced technologies available at Sandgate Bayside Dental, missing teeth are easy to replace. 

For one, you can opt to have a dental implant. However, it will still depend on your overall health.

Whatever the case is, seek your dentist’s advice and bring back that beautiful smile.


All on 4 Dental Implants

Do not feel like it’s the end of the world, even if you have lost the entire row of your natural teeth. You don’t have to wear dentures, especially if you are uncomfortable with them.

All on 4 dental implants are the solution you’ve been waiting for.

  • It brings back your smile and the functionality of your teeth.

What is the “all on 4 dental implants” about? The procedure utilizes only few titanium implants (usually four) to replace your teeth. 

It can be used in the upper or lower jaw, with the implants becoming the support of your set of new teeth and the foundation for the fixed teeth.

It utilizes a simple design to accomplish a full-arch rehabilitation.

The healing process is faster and the result will look as close to natural as you could imagine. The implants won’t move since they are fixed, so you don’t have to feel anxious all the time that they might fall.

The procedure will also result in easy-to-clean permanent dentures. You only have to brush, and floss them (or use waterpik) twice a day, as you would do in your normal teeth.

It is also important to have it checked by your dentist every six months to check and maintain your overall dental health.

Partial Dentures – Helping in Esthetics, Function, and Preventing Other Teeth from Moving

If you have some healthy teeth remaining in your mouth, either your upper or lower jaws, you don’t have to get rid of them just to have your dentures done. 

Seek your dentist’s help and ask about partial dentures.

Partial dentures are removable fixtures that can replace a number of teeth in the lower or upper areas of the mouth, depending on how many teeth you’ve lost. 

Partial dentures help in restoring your smile and mouth’s contour. The remaining healthy teeth in your mouth will shift over time without proper support. Partial dentures will help preserve them while giving your mouth and face a good form.

Aside from the esthetics, these dentures improve your teeth and mouth’s functions. They enable you to speak clearly and chew effortlessly.

Why opt for having partial dentures?

  • They look real. 

Partial dentures are comfortable to wear, so you would look like you aren’t wearing any dentures at all. Plus, the teeth look similar to the natural ones. Others won’t notice the difference unless you’d tell them.

  • They provide stability. 

Partial dentures gather support from certain tissues and your remaining teeth. They stop other teeth from moving and hence support them. 

  • They are removable. 

You can take them off before going to bed and have them thoroughly cleaned. This will also make it easier to brush and maintain your remaining natural teeth.

Your dentist will assess if all the natural teeth are healthy or if they ought to extract a number of them to ensure the best results of your partial dentures.

Types of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures come in many forms. Your dentist will explain the options and recommendations based on their assessment of your remaining natural teeth and overall dental health.

However, three types of partial dentures are generally used – acrylic (plastic), chrome (metal), and Flexi dentures.

Acrylic partial dentures

For this option, your dentist will use a pink acrylic base to hold the replacement teeth. The base, which looks like natural gums, is thick and a bit bulky, which helps in minimizing the risk of breakage. 

Most dentists give this option as an interim solution while waiting for a more permanent solution to missing teeth. Many clients also find the bulkiness of the material uncomfortable. 

However, some adapt to this type easily and find the dentures comfortable that they last using them for a couple of years before choosing the more permanent solution to their dental concern.

Chrome (metal) partial dentures

Aside from being among the most common options, the metal partial dentures are also meant to last as long as you properly handle and care for them. Metal dentures are sturdier, and thinner as metal gives the denture strength. 

Flexi partial dentures

Flexible partial dentures are preferred by clients allergic to nickel or denture monomers. These are also used often to replace one or two teeth. The dentures are made from light and thin thermoplastic, hypoallergenic material injected into the gum tissues to mold and fit right. They use clasps with a similar color to natural gums, making it hard to distinguish the natural teeth from the partials. 

What do you choose?

Your dentist will help you with that after assessing your overall dental health. They will brief you through the choices and explain which one is more suited depending on a variety of factors.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures or full dentures are removable and used by people who have lost all their teeth. They are comprised of the base and artificial teeth. 

The base holds the artificial teeth and restores defective hard and soft tissues. The artificial teeth bring back your smile and help you bite and chew your food.

Since they are removable, they can be prone to falling off, especially as they wear off. You will need to get them replaced after several years. As a temporary fix, Tto prevent any accidental falls, you can use denture adhesives to keep them in place whenever you have them on.


Stability Issues with Dentures Especially the Lower OnePart

Most people who have experienced difficulties with their dentures have issues with stability. To most people’s surprise, many of them complain about the lower dentures becoming loose. 

When you imagine the scenario, you may likely think that the upper denture would have the tendency to fall. But it seems like upper jaw has quite a lot of surface area and they adhere to the palate as they gain suction.

The fact is that lower dentures lack a large surface of the mouth’s stationary anatomy to stick to. They only gather support from a narrow ridge of bone, and the dentures get moved a lot with each movement of the tongue.

Implant-Supported Dentures to the Rescue

Unlike regular dentures that gather support from the gums, implant-supported dentures are anchored to dental implants.

The first implant will be placed in the jawbone under the gums. The second procedure will follow three to six months after, which will open the head of the implant following osseointegration (fusion of implants to the bone). 

Depending on the patient’s dental health and the dentist’s decision, the attachment mechanism and implants can already be placed in one stage. Patients can also be given a temporary denture on the same day following the implant procedure, but it still depends on lots of factors which your dentist can discuss with you. 

The Verdict

Implant-supported dentures are stronger and more durable than the traditional types. They are natural-looking and won’t make you feel nervous that the dentures might slip out at any time. You will have more confidence in talking and have an easier time chewing your food.

Immediate Dentures – Keeping Your Front Teeth While You Wait for Your Dentures

Many people fear losing their front teeth because they feel too embarrassed to face the public with such a loss that is too obvious. This is something that you should not lose sleep about these days. The solution is to have your dentist fix you with immediate dentures.

Immediate dentures can be partial or complete dentures you can wear the same day after the extraction of your natural teeth. Your dentist will prepare the denture before you get your teeth removed. 

Immediate dentures will save you from the embarrassment. Nobody even needed to know that you’ve lost your teeth. You can wear the dentures on the same day you go to your dentist’s clinic. 

After two to three months, the dentures may become loose as the gums shrink, and your mouth heals. 

Your dentist may advise a denture reline.


What’s a Denture Reline?

No matter how expensive and durable your dentures are, they are bound to get loose over time. This is mainly due to the shrinking of the jaw bone as the time progresses. So even when you are already wearing dentures, you must still consult with your dentist to get them checked and recommend if the denture needs repair or denture reline.

Denture repair and denture reline are two different things, but both work to help the dentures perform their best. 

Denture repair will fix the issues and damages incurred to the dentures. They can be anything that results from the usual wear and tear, including cracks and chips.

On the other hand, denture reline refits the part of the dentures that fit in the gums to create a comforting but fit contact between the tissues in your mouth and the denture base. 

It is necessary to have the dentures checked by your dentist every year or two, depending on how fast your tissues change. Denture relining will ensure that the dentures perform their functions, fit well, and won’t cause any embarrassment by falling off when you least expect it.

The process helps in improving the denture’s fit and extending its usefulness while making you feel comfortable while wearing one. Whether your dentures need relining or repair is your dentist’s call. Set an appointment before your dentures become too loose or damaged for comfort.


Taking Care of Your Dentures and the Importance of Good Oral Hygiene

High-quality dentures come with a price, so you have to ensure they will stay in good condition for a long time. Aside from the cost, dentures allow you to live life like usual. You can face people with confidence, talk while being understood, and eat whatever you want.

You have to treat them like your natural teeth, which means that you have to maintain and care for them properly.

Here are some of the basic steps to keep your dentures in good shape for a long time:

  1. Remove and rinse them after eating. Make sure that you wash off any food debris while also keeping the inside of your mouth food-free.
  2. Handle them with care all the time. Avoid cleaning the dentures with sharp-pointed objects, and always be careful when you hold and clean them.
  3. Brush the dentures every day just like how you would brush your natural teeth. 
  4. Consult your dentist regularly to have the dentures fixed or relined.
patient use toothbrush to clean partial denture of replacement teeth.

Why is Oral Hygiene Important?

Through regular brushing and flossing, you are keeping your mouth and teeth free from infection and decay. When left untreated, certain oral diseases may aggravate your other health concerns.

Oral hygiene also helps preserve the good structure of your mouth and the bones in it. It is also an effective way of preventing tooth loss.

Aside from keeping your teeth and mouth clean, oral hygiene also includes visiting your dentist regularly. They need to check your oral health and provide solutions to the obvious problems before they become too much to handle.
