Dentures To Fit

These days dentures look and feel natural and comfortable, with the fitting and adjustment now a streamlined process. The My Emergency Dentist team are experienced and well-trained dentists who offer top advice and experience in the field.
We strongly advise our patients to choose quality dentures and avoid inexpensive options to maintain your oral health. Problems may arise with ill-fitting or poorly made dentures.

A Necessary Cost

We understand that price is very important to denture wearers, and that cleaning systems and dental pastes bring extra costs to the patient. My Emergency Dentist advises that our clients check with their private health insurers for dentistry cover.

What’s Involved?

All our patients are given the best care for a denture fitting. It involves:

Different Types Of Dentures.

Complete dentures are a full set of removable false teeth in two versions, immediate and conventional.
Immediate dentures are a temporary set designed for the patient’s mouth while recovering from oral surgery. Healing gums shrink and move a little so immediate dentures will require some adjustment, eventually these will be replaced by a conventional set of dentures.
Conventional dentures are crafted with acrylic, nylon or metal and are made post-surgery. A dentist will wait until a patient’s gums are fully recovered before fitting a complete set of conventional dentures. Your dentist will assess your bite, jaws and gum colour to minimise over multiple appointments for the perfect fit.

A Partial Denture

A partial set are replacement teeth fitted around remaining permanent teeth to hide missing teeth and aid in chewing. Sill removable, they are connected to a plastic base with a metal framework and fitted during ongoing appointments for comfort and ease of use.

Denture Types





Implant Supported


Do You Need Dentures?

Trauma or decay can damage a tooth beyond repair. In situations where alternative procedures are not an option, your dentist may advise that your tooth needs to be removed.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is a gum infection that spreads from the gums to the structures that support teeth in the jawbone, and may require tooth extractions.

Dental Cavities

Tooth decay can become so serious that extraction is could be necessary, your dentist may recommend dentures as a future solution.

Facial Sagging

A correct denture fitting aids in making the face look full again and gives support to the facial muscles. This solution can improve self-esteem and confidence.

Chewing and Speaking Issues

We take eating and talking for granted, but when teeth are missing this function can be painful and distressing and affect a person’s speech. A new set can help you return to chewing your food and speaking as you once did.

Possible Complications

There is potentially some discomfit after a denture fitting:
After a week or two these issues should subside, if they persist contact your dentist for further adjustments.

Denture After Care

Once your dentures have been fitted:
Maintain your dentures to ensure oral hygiene and longevity.
Attend follow-up appointments for adjustments, and replace your set every 5 to 7 years.

Alternatives to Dentures?

Dental implants are another good choice for missing teeth, and are surgically placed into the jawbone to support artificial teeth.
Veneers are another option, which is a tooth covering that improves the appearance of a decayed tooth. Veneers are a great alternative to dentures if teeth are intact and only require aesthetic improvement.
