Coast Dental offer dentures to help patients regain bite and speech

Dentures are one of the most cost-effective tooth replacement options available. A removable appliance, the base to which the false teeth are attached, a denture is made from cobalt chrome or acrylic. Dentures add support for lips, chin as well as helping with chewing and speech.

Dentures to suit your individual needs

When you lose teeth, the jawbone that holds the tooth root starts to shrink and this can give your face a shrunken aged appearance. Your front teeth are designed to tear and rip – not chew – so for every back tooth you lose you lose 10% of your chewing ability. A denture can help your chewing, help you bite and restore the appearance of your smile.

Coast Dental offer two
kinds of dentures

How the denture is kept in place depends on the type of denture you need. The ways in which dentures can be kept in place are

The denture process

At your initial consultation one of our dentists will assess your oral health and determine what the best restorative treatment for your teeth is. Depending on the level of treatment you require you may need two to four appointments.

The first one or two appointments will be when the impressions of your upper and lower jaw are taken. These impressions will be sent to the dental laboratory where a trial denture will be fabricated.

The next appointment (either the 2nd or the 3rd) will be when the trial denture is fitted to make sure it is comfortable and the prosthetic teeth bite together properly. At this appointment we can make the necessary adjustments; the dentures will be returned to the laboratory for the final stage of completion.

The final appointment is when your completed denture will be fitted.

Getting used to your dentures

At your final denture appointment one of our Coast Dental team will explain what you should expect. There will be some soreness in the initial 48 hours, after which the discomfort and soreness will subside. If the discomfort continues, contact Coast Dental for assistance. While your jaws get used to the dentures it may affect your speech, however this should not last more than a day or so.

A great result every time

Before After

This is how we bring
your smile back

Initial consultation

During your first consultation we take an in-depth look at the existing issues, immediate problems and most importantly – what causes the current dental issues (if there are any). We will also discuss the treatment options, payment plans, your availability and any other things that may concern you.

Treating immediate issues

We first focus on the issues that cause you discomfort or pain. Having that done first ensures that we prevent and monitor any issues that may become worse over time, thus saving you time, money and your teeth!

Treating other dental issues

We then move along the discussed plan, while keeping you informed. This way you know exactly what is happening with every step of the way.

Prevention and oral health management

This is the most important step. Based on your exact dental history we may recommend an array of options to help prevent future issues from occurring. We will also help you manage ongoing issues (if there are any).
