Upgrade Your Poor-Fitting Dentures with a Fixed Modern Dental Implant Solutions!

Losing a single or front tooth or multiple teeth is more than just an aesthetic concern. It affects how you chew, speak, and even feel about yourself when you smile. That’s why it’s important for you to consider the tooth replacement options available to make the right decision for your circumstances.

Should You Replace Your Loose Denture?

Deciding whether to replace a poor-fitting denture is a choice that revolves around your personal comfort and well-being. Many individuals adjust to minor inconveniences, especially if the issues aren’t causing significant discomfort or impacting daily life. Reflect on how the denture affects your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. Your dental experience should prioritise not only optimal function but also your self-assuredness.

However, even if you’ve grown accustomed to a less-than-perfect fit, it’s worth mentioning that prolonged use of a misfit denture can lead to other dental concerns. Whether it’s sore spots, infections, or further jawbone deterioration, these complications can arise over time. We advise considering the broader picture and potential implications while considering a replacement.

"We truly recognise the challenges you encounter when dealing with poor-fitting dentures. Every individual deserves a comfortable and functional solution that suits their specific needs. You don't have to endure this discomfort alone; we're here to assist and guide you towards a better fit and improved dental well-being."

The Risk Of Waiting: Why Replacing A Poor-Fitting Denture Is Best!

Using a denture that doesn’t fit properly is not just about discomfort; it’s a doorway to a series of potential oral health challenges. Prolonged use of an ill-fitting denture can manifest in problems that extend beyond mere inconvenience. Before deciding to stick with a misfit denture, consider the following critical risks:

A denture that doesn’t sit well can rub against the gums, leading to sores. These sores can become breeding grounds for bacteria, resulting in infections that not only cause pain but can also impact overall oral health.

A poor-fitting denture often doesn’t provide the necessary support to the facial muscles, leading to sagging or a change in facial appearance. This lack of support can age the face prematurely.

Just as a missing tooth can affect speech, so can a misfit denture. It can lead to slurred or unclear speech, making social interactions difficult. The continuous worry about the denture slipping can also diminish one’s confidence in public settings.

An ill-fitting denture can lead to continuous pressure on specific areas of the gums and underlying bone. Over time, this uneven distribution of force can accelerate bone and gum tissue loss. This deterioration not only affects the current fit of the denture but can also make any future dental appliances, including implants, more challenging due to reduced bone density and gum health.

“Opting for permanent implants over full or partial dentures can avert various health issues, a choice that benefits the long-term wellness of your mouth."

Cost of Upgrading Dentures to Permanent Dental Implants?

The cost of replacing poor-fitting dentures with permanent dental implant solutions starts from $24,990 in Sydney. This total varies based on the number of implants needed, which correlates with the number of missing teeth. Additional costs include the dental surgeon’s fees, facility charges, necessary anesthetics, and post-surgery care like medications and follow-up visits.

For a personalised estimate, we recommend a consultation with our dental professionals. They will provide a detailed cost breakdown and discuss payment options to suit your budget. Our team is committed to guiding you through this process, prioritising your oral health.

Best Implant Options for Replacing Dentures

If you’re considering replacing your dentures with dental implants, you’re likely looking for a more stable, long-lasting solution. Dental implants offer several advantages, including a more natural feel, improved function, and preservation of bone density. Here are some of the top implant options for replacing dentures:

Full Arch Dental Implants (All-on-4 or All-on-6)

This method uses four to six strategically placed implants to support an entire arch of teeth. It’s a popular choice for those wanting to replace a full set of dentures.

Fewer implants are needed than traditional methods, and the procedure can often be completed in a single day.

Implant-Supported Overdentures

A type of denture that’s supported by and attached to implants. A minimum of two implants are used to keep the dentures in place.

Offers more stability than traditional dentures and still allows for removal for cleaning.

Individual Dental Implants

If you’re only replacing a few teeth, individual implants might be the best choice. Each missing tooth gets its own implant.

They function just like natural teeth and can last a lifetime with proper care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, it’s possible to have all your teeth extracted and opt for complete dentures. However, it’s a significant decision with long-term implications. Before taking this step, it’s crucial to consider factors like your overall oral health, age, and bone density. We should discuss the benefits, potential challenges, and alternative treatments, such as dental implants, to determine the best solution for your specific needs.

Wearing dentures can be frustrating for several reasons. They might feel unnatural or bulky in the mouth initially. Over time, as the shape of your gums and jaw changes, dentures can become loose, leading to discomfort, difficulty in speaking or eating, and potential sore spots. Additionally, dentures require regular cleaning and maintenance, and without proper fit and care, they can lead to infections or other oral health issues.

If you’re looking to sidestep these challenges, dental implants might be an excellent alternative to consider. Unlike dentures, implants are securely anchored to the jawbone, offering a natural feel and eliminating many of the common frustrations associated with dentures. This means you can go back to enjoy the foods you love without any fear of the denture falling out and creating an embarrassing moment.

If your dentures are rubbing against the inside of your gums, it’s likely due to an imperfect fit. Over time, the shape of your gums and jaw can change, causing the dentures to sit differently. It’s essential to address this promptly, as continuous rubbing can lead to sore spots or ulcers. We recommend scheduling an appointment so we can adjust the fit and ensure your comfort. Alternatively, if you are interested in investigating a longer-term solution we can also guide you through an evaluation of dental implants.

Both dental implants and dentures have their advantages. Dental implants provide a more stable, long-lasting solution and closely mimic the feel of natural teeth. They also help preserve jawbone density. On the other hand, dentures are typically less invasive and can be more cost-effective initially. The best choice depends on your individual needs, oral health, budget, and preferences.

Properly fitting dentures should feel comfortable and secure in your mouth without causing any pain or irritation. They shouldn’t shift or slide when you eat or speak. If you notice sore spots, experience difficulty chewing, or find that the dentures are loose, it’s likely an indication they aren’t fitting as they should. Regular check-ups are essential to ensure the continued proper fit and to make any necessary adjustments.

After receiving new dentures, there’s typically an adjustment period that can last several weeks. During this time, it’s common to experience some discomfort as your mouth adapts. We can make minor adjustments to improve the fit as needed. However, with regular wear and follow-up appointments, most patients find their dentures fit comfortably within a month.

To address poorly fitting dentures, we can make certain adjustments or consider a relining process to improve their alignment with your gums. However, if you’re seeking a more permanent and comfortable solution, it might be worth exploring dental implants. Implants provide a stable, long-lasting alternative to dentures and can greatly enhance both function and aesthetics.
