A REMOVABLE SOLUTION TO MISSING TEETH (Dentures In Singapore)

Dentures

A denture is made up of tooth-coloured plastic teeth that are attached to a pink acrylic base. It is specifically moulded to fit the shape of the gaps in your mouth caused by missing teeth.

 

A denture in Singapore can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth (partial denture), and even an entire jaw of teeth (complete denture).

What Are Dentures?

Specific superficial measurements of your mouth are taken over a few progressive stages in coordination with our dental laboratory, to ensure a precise and comfortable denture is created in accord with the shape of your mouth.

Types of Dentures

Full Plastic or Acrylic Dentures

Full plastic or acrylic dentures are the most basic type of denture. They are simple to construct and affordable.

 

However, in some situations, they may not stay in your mouth as well as you would like. If done on your upper jaw, it can also cover the roof of your mouth, and affect your taste slightly.

Flexible Dentures

Flexible dentures adapt and gain support from neighbouring teeth to enable a denture that is able to retain well in your mouth.

Cobalt-Chrome Dentures

Cobalt-chrome dentures use metal to reinforce their plastic or acrylic base and gain support from neighbouring teeth. The denture’s strength, stability and retention in your mouth is greatly improved.

 

This is especially useful for lower dentures which are likely to be displaced by your tongue, and for upper dentures to cover less of the roof of your mouth to enable you to taste food better.

 

However, cobalt-chrome dentures tend to be more costly due to the premium quality of materials used and its more complex manufacturing process.

Do I Need Dentures?

A denture in Singapore is one of the ways to replace gaps caused by missing teeth. It is ideal for:
  • The replacement of a large number of gaps of missing teeth;
  • Patients who want a removable tooth replacement option;
  • Patients who are unable to have dental implants, for example, due to certain medical conditions, insufficient level of jaw bone, etc;
  • Patients who are unable to have a bridge, for example, due to unusable supporting teeth;
  • Temporarily replacing teeth in an interim stage whilst waiting for your tissues to heal and be ready for a bridge or dental implant, for example in some cases after having an extraction.

 

Rather than leaving gaps of missing teeth as they are, dentures can restore your natural-looking smile, help you to eat comfortably, help with any speech problems due to lack of teeth, and reduce the amount of bone loss from your jaw.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

Stage 1: Consultation and Pre-Treatment

  • At your denture consultation, your dentist will explore your concerns, thoroughly examine your teeth, and take any necessary X-rays, pulp tests, intraoral scans or mouth impressions.
  • You will be informed if a denture or other treatment options are suitable for your situation.
  • If a denture has been decided upon, the types of dentures will be discussed and decided upon according to your condition and expectations.

Stage 3: Post-Operative Care

Once your denture has been fitted, you will be provided instructions on how to look after your mouth and new denture.

Stage 2: Denture Procedure

  • Depending on the complexity of your denture, a few to several visits are be needed to take progressive measurements of your mouth in coordination with our dental laboratory to construct your final denture.
  • Each stage and appointment will last 15 to 30 minutes. As these measurements are all superficial, no local anaesthetic is usually needed.
