If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth due to dental decay, disease, or injury, dentures offer a wise solution. Our teeth dentures in Bassendean have been helping people regain their confidence and improve their smiles for many years.


Why Consider Dentures?

Dentures offer an economical solution for missing teeth due to decay, gum disease, or heavily damaged teeth requiring extraction.

Our Bassendean clinic provides high-quality dentures designed for comfort, facial support, and functionality. We prioritize restoring smiles, filling gaps, and preventing issues like teeth migration and jaw complications. Facial collapse due to missing teeth is a concern we address with our expert denture clinics. Dentures not only replace missing teeth but also support facial muscles, improving chewing, speech, and overall oral health.

Types of Dentures

There are numerous types of dentures available. They are available in permanent and detachable forms. The type that is ideal for you will depend on your lifestyle and oral health.

Full dentures are another name for complete dentures. They are complete tooth replacements.

Before suggesting full options, most dentists will attempt to save at least few natural teeth. However, if all other treatments have been failed, complete dentures are usually required.

Complete Dentures

Dentures are constructed of acrylic resin and are supported only by hard and soft tissues that remain. They lack the stability of teeth that are fixed into the bone, such as implants or natural teeth.

With total dentures, many people suffer speech impairments. This is a result of the new prosthesis’s neuromuscular control of the mouth and cheeks and the thickness of the substance covering the palate. Significantly thinned acrylic will fracture over time.

Implant-supported bridges are another name for fixed partial dentures (FPD). FPDs use two dental implants to replace a few lost teeth in a row, with a prosthetic tooth or teeth filling in the spaces. They are screwed or permanently cemented into the mouth.

Patients with three or more consecutive lost teeth might consider implant-supported bridges. Implant-supported bridges cannot be removed, in contrast to removable partial dentures and removable full dentures.

RPDs (removable partial dentures) simply replace a few lost teeth in your upper or lower jaw. RPDs can be simply removed and changed at any time. They can return teeth to their normal appearance, feel, and function.

Any number of connectors, some of which are more aesthetically pleasing than others, can be used to attach a partial denture to your teeth, including metal clasps and frames.
They are frequently advised for those who do not qualify for an implant-supported bridge. People who are unable to have surgery are included.

Removable Partial Dentures

Implant-retained dentures snap into a post that is inserted right into your jawbone, as opposed to traditional dentures that rest above the gum and are secured in place with cement. As a result, the denture is stable and stays in place.

No more applying adhesive is necessary if you have dentures anchored by dental implants. Additionally, because the implant post replaces a tooth root in your bone tissue, they aid in preventing jawbone erosion.

They are more stable and functional than traditional dentures. The only catch is that you have to take them out every night to clean and give your gum tissues a break.

An immediate denture is a full or partial denture that is implanted on the same day that natural teeth are extracted. For the first few months after extraction, you’ll wear them. So, while you wait for your permanent dentures to arrive, you will have teeth.

Snap-on dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures, are one option for treating dental decay and tooth loss.

Snap-on dentures attach to surgically placed implants in your jawbone. They fit securely, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without fear of your dentures coming loose.

You must take off your appliance at night before bed if you use a snap-on denture.

Denture Procedure

Our team’s initial task is to check the patient’s teeth and assess their dental condition. During this inspection, the dentist will look for any signs of illness, tooth decay, past dental work that may interfere with the denture process, and any other teeth that may need to be removed before the dentures are placed.

The dentist will take measurements and a model of the teeth after the consultation to guarantee that the dentures perfectly match the natural teeth. Typically, your dentist will do this with wax or plastic. After that, our dentist will transmit these results to a dental lab, which will create the dentures in accordance with the instructions.

  1. The impressions are submitted to a lab and inserted into an articulator. A wax simulation and attachment of the teeth is made possible by the articulator.
  2. To make the wax fit the impressions and resemble your gums, a technician files it down.
  3. The dentures are inserted into a flask, a two-part mold. To keep the shape of the denture, plaster is put into the flask.
  4. The flask’s wax is replaced with acrylic resin, which is then allowed to cure.
  5. The technician uses specialized lab tools to remove plaster mold. The dentures are cleaned of all acrylic and plaster residue.
  6. Pumice is used to clean and polish the dentures.

Dentures are finished after polishing. Your dentist will contact you to schedule a final fitting to check that the dentures fit properly. We will ensure that the customer can wear the dentures without pain or difficulty. We will modify the dentures if necessary during this visit.

Many patients find that implant-supported dentures feel more like their natural teeth.

Case Study

In this case study a 60 yo patient is presented with missing upper teeth and teeth mobilities due to advanced periodontitis where the roots no longer hold due to prolonged and untreated gum disease. The proposed solution calls for the removal of all upper front teeth and these be replaced with a full upper denture.
The specific requirement for the new full upper denture presents an interesting case both in terms of aiming to retain the features of the former teeth on the new denture, and to ensure its colour shade, selected at A3 to blend in with both existing teeth and able to withstand colour variations through the patient’s daily smoking and strong coffee habit.
As the patient’s natural teeth always had a small gap between his 2 front teeth, while missing teeth due to gum disease over the years has widened this to be a bigger 3mm gap for most of his adult life, the patient still wishes to retain a small gap, although smaller at 1.5mm between the same middle 2 teeth for the new denture.

The patient’s successful outcome was achieved through a collaborative process involving the dentist, patient, and dental lab. Each tooth’s form was carefully selected to blend seamlessly with the patient’s natural teeth, with color shades promptly verified and adjusted as needed throughout the process for the final denture.



Periodontal disease can hasten bone loss, and when you lose teeth, the remaining bone may be insufficient. Because of this, wearing dentures might not be the best experience. Anatomy and function may have changed for anyone who has had reconstructive surgery after having oral cancer.

It’s typical to suffer slight irritation when you initially get your new dentures, but this should lessen as your mouth adjusts to them. The duration of the pain varies. It could take longer if you have new dentures after previously wearing a set.

Wearing dentures in your sleep, regardless of the type, is a bad decision that will lead to a variety of health problems in the future. Make careful to take out your dentures each night before bed to prevent oral bacteria buildup, keep a healthy gums, and maintain the strength and integrity of your bones.

Dentures should be worn for at least 8 hours per day. This will allow your jawbone and gums time to adjust to the dentures and stop sore spots from forming.

  • Dentures should be cleaned at least twice a day.
  • Changing your lifestyle can help you prevent staining your dentures.
  • A nighttime care routine is required.
  • There is a correct method for washing dentures.
  • Some products can cause dentures to break.
