Dentures aren’t just an aesthetic solution for missing teeth. Missing teeth can be quite detrimental for your oral health if not fixed fast! If you have healthy teeth remaining, these will gradually lean and tilt towards any gaps made by missing teeth. This creates opportunities for further tooth decay.
The loss of teeth can also change your facial structure, causing it to droop while affecting your ability to eat and talk well. Without teeth, your gums will take the brunt of any chewing, which can be quite painful over time. How do dentures help? Dentures are a set of fully functional artificial teeth made out of acrylic, designed to look natural, feel comfortable and be as useful as your natural teeth.
You are an ideal candidate for dentures if you suffer from single or multiple tooth loss or even all of your teeth. This can even apply to some of our younger patients who suffer from severe gum disease, tooth decay or other dental abnormalities. During your initial consultation, our dental team will examine your oral health and the treatment best suited for you.
At SDG, we offer a range of dental options and follow-up treatments for your dentures including:
Also known as full dentures, this is a replacement for all your natural teeth. They are easily removable and held in place by suction or the help of an oral adhesive.
When you have surrounding teeth that aren’t healthy enough to
These are pre-made dentures that are created specifically for the healing process, preparing your mouth for the permanent dentures to follow. This can also apply for those patients that are going through the delayed option before the final prostheses. (eg waiting period of a delayed All on 4 prostheses where the bone density and quality is not adequate for immediate loading of final bridge)
If traditional dentures prove uncomfortable, overdentures are a great alternative to try. This is also used when you have a few natural teeth remaining. They’re fitted over & rested on the roots of your natural teeth, or with the aid of dental implants. This is also easily removable.
For a more permanent fix, our implant-supported option helps anchor your dentures securely to implants placed in your jawbone. These can be both removable (locator supported prosthesis) and fixed (All on 4 prosthesis).
Your gums may change after getting dentures. Factors affecting this include your health, age etc. You don’t have to buy new dentures every time this occurs. If a replacement isn’t necessary, we can repair and/or reline your existing dentures so that they are comfortably fitted to your gums.
After an initial consultation to determine the best treatment options for your smile, our dentist will take impressions of your mouth to create perfectly fitted dentures tailored to your exact smile.
While immediate dentures can be manufactured and inserted on the same day as the extraction of your teeth, conventional dentures will take up to 2 to 3 weeks to create. They will also be inserted only after your gums have healed from any extraction or surgical procedure.
It’s not uncommon to experience slight irritation during the initial adjusting period. To have your dentures perfectly & comfortably fitted, you can have your dentures further adjusted during the healing process over the course of 2 or more sessions.
The cost of dentures usually varies from individual to individual. It is best to book for a consult with one of our experienced dental team to discuss this. Once you schedule your initial consultation at SDG,

While you’ll be advised to wear your dentures almost constantly in the first few weeks, we then recommend removing them before you sleep at night to give your gums a resting period. Any kind of dentures you have will also need to be cleaned daily, much like regular teeth! Here’s what you need to do:
Dentures can last up to 5 to 6 years before needing to be replaced. They will gradually wear out over the years and your mouth will also change shape. Due to this, your dentures will need to be remade or relined to be comfortable and safe. This varies for individual patients in terms of their biology, medical background, dietary habits, maintenance etc.
