It may be time for a new set of teeth.
Whether you need to replace an old denture or plan to get a denture for the first time in your life, our team is ready to help. Many of our denture patients tell us how getting a set of modern and comfortable prosthetic teeth changed their lives. We want to help you enjoy a better quality of life by fitting you for a stable new denture.
Getting dentures at Parkfield Dental will leave you with subtle results that will make you feel your best. You can optimise the effectiveness and longevity of your dentures by taking care of them just as well as you care for any natural teeth you may have left.
If you have unsightly gaps in your mouth that are making you feel self-conscious, Parkfield Dental will offer you treatment recommendations to help your smile look its very best at all times.
The dentures we design are hard-wearing and mimic the look and feel of real teeth and gums to give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
The very first thing we need to do is examine your mouth. One of our dentists will conduct a comprehensive oral health examination and take some diagnostic images and photographs. Then, working together with you and our treatment co-ordinator, your dentist will create a bespoke treatment plan for building your denture and restoring your smile. We will review this treatment plan with you, answer your questions and explain all of your treatment options and alternatives.
Designing a denture is a very bespoke and personal process. You will need to visit our practice multiple times to try in your denture at various stages of the process. We want to be absolutely convinced that your new denture is comfortable and looks realistic, so we will need to make some adjustments as we go along. Depending on the size and type of your denture, your new teeth may be ready in a matter of weeks, or it may take a few months to perfect your appliance.
Once your denture is complete, you can start wearing it and adjusting to life with false teeth. In short order, you will be able to laugh, smile, eat and speak with confidence in the stability and beauty of your bite.
Many people wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth, allowing them to enjoy a healthy diet and to smile with confidence.
Our dentures are made either entirely of acrylic (plastic), or of acrylic with metal parts.
A ‘complete’ or ‘full’ denture is one that replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.
A ‘partial’ denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your teeth with metal clasps or ‘precision attachments’.
The process of getting a denture is a very personal one. It takes time and multiple fitting appointments to create a denture that is unique to your mouth.
We will carefully design your denture with these goals in mind:
Create a stable bite
Our first goal is to make you a denture that will allow you to live your life as normally as possible. This means that your denture should function well and rest securely in your mouth. We want your denture to help (and not hinder) you in eating and speaking.
Increase your comfort
Next, we want to ensure that your denture feels as comfortable as possible. A denture will not do you any good if it causes you pain when you chew. We will design your denture to rest perfectly on your gums or fit securely on your remaining teeth in a way that feels natural.
Design a realistic finish
Finally, we will carefully design the teeth and gum portion of your denture to look as lifelike as possible so that you can smile with confidence. No one need ever know that you are wearing false teeth, as long as your denture has a fantastic aesthetic finish.
After your initial consultation with the dentist here at Parkfield, we will create your bespoke treatment plan and explain exactly what costs and steps will be involved in the creation of your new denture.
Once your denture is ready, we will thoroughly explain how you can wear and care for it to get the most out of your dental prosthesis. Our team is here for you every step of the way, and we are always ready to answer your questions about your denture design process.
In addition to traditional dentures, we also offer teeth-in-a-day dental implants here at Parkfield Dental.
Teeth-in-a-day, also known as same-day teeth, is a technique in which our implant dentists place four to six dental implants in your mouth and fit them with a full-arch dental bridge in the same appointment. The result is a lifelike full set of teeth that rest on dental implants instead of on your gums.
Some people refer to this treatment as implant dentures because the implants are covered with a full arch of false teeth. But these teeth stay permanently anchored to your implants and are not removable.
If you are interested in replacing your teeth with a full mouth of same-day dental implants, you can schedule a free consultation to meet with our treatment co-ordinator Emma and learn more about this treatment.

Dentures usually last for several years, as long as they are well cared for. However, sometimes the shape of the mouth can change or the denture may wear down and therefore your dentures will need to be relined or re-made. Bone and gum ridges can also shrink with time, causing your jaws to close together differently. Loose dentures can cause health problems, including sores and infections, not to mention discomfort. A loose or ill-fitting denture can also make eating and talking more difficult. It is important to replace worn or poorly fitting dentures before they cause problems.
You may need a little time to get used to wearing a new denture. Chew slowly using both sides of your mouth at the same time to prevent the denture from moving and start with soft foods cut into small pieces. As you become more used to your denture, other foods can be added until you return to your normal healthy diet. Practice eating different foods at home before you venture out to eat in public or with friends.
When teeth are lost, the facial muscles around the mouth lose support and this can cause visible sagging around the mouth area. This can make a person look older, so replacing lost or missing teeth tends to improve appearance.
A complete or full denture replaces your natural teeth and gives support to your cheeks and lips. Dentures can be made to closely match your natural teeth so that your new appearance resembles how you looked before you lost your teeth. Modern dentures can thus improve the look of your smile and help fill out the appearance of your face.
If your denture is causing you pain, remove your denture, clean it thoroughly, cleanse your tongue, gums and any other remaining teeth, and carefully examine your mouth for signs of irritation. Give us a call to schedule a check-up so that one of our denture dentists can examine your mouth and denture to identify the issue.
A well-made denture will not easily fall out of your mouth. Upper dentures use suction to stay in place, and lower dentures have the advantage of gravity to hold them in place. If your denture has a snug and comfortable fit, it will stay in place. With practice, you will get used to the sensation of your denture and your confidence in your appliance will grow.
However, if your denture starts to loosen after a few years or if you are wearing a denture for the first time, then you may want the added security of a denture adhesive. Adhesives come in a variety of pastes, powders and creams. You need very little to give your denture added stability. Contact our team for product recommendations if you would like to try a denture adhesive.
Dentures may initially affect the way you talk, but once you get used to wearing false teeth, you can start speaking normally again. All it takes is a little practice!
