What Are Dentures?

Dentures, or false teeth, are prosthetic devices made to replace lost teeth. There are a number of reasons why someone might require dentures, but the main reason is usually age. Tooth enamel starts to wear down as we get older, making the teeth more vulnerable to damage and decay. Tooth loss makes it a lot more difficult for older people to chew or eat very well. When older adults lose their teeth, the jaw bone will begin to shift and eventually start to waste away.

Dentures are an excellent way to restore the health, functionality and aesthetics of your mouth. A well-made denture can help you speak and eat more comfortably. Replacing missing teeth with custom-made dentures will also help enhance your smile and overall appearance, thereby boosting your confidence.

Why do I need dentures?

You may need to consider getting dentures if you have:

  • Lost one or more teeth
  • Loose or moving teeth
  • Difficulty chewing food
  • Difficulty speaking clearly

What types of dentures are there?

Full dentures:

Our complete dentures are made of a plastic base that is coloured to replicate gum tissue, and it includes a full set of acrylic teeth.

Partial dentures

A partial denture is a removable plate with one or more false teeth on it that attaches to your natural teeth.

Dentures can be made from a variety of materials such as:

  • Acrylic Dentures - these are made from a plastic type of material and are an easily moldable material.
  • Cobalt Chrome or Metal Dentures - these are a metal framework that support false teeth and are usually for partial dentures. Cobalt chrome is a medically approved, light alloy metal. It is the strongest and most durable metal that can be used to make a denture that doesn't irritate the gums and mouth.
  • Flexible Dentures - Flexible dentures are a type of partial denture that is usually constructed from nylon or other thin thermoplastics, which differs significantly from the thicker, harder acrylic that is often used in normal dentures.

Digital Dentures

Digital dentures are dentures that have been constructed from start to finish using digital software. The impressions are done using digital scanning of the mouth, and the dentures are designed, based on these scans, in a computer and then printed using 3D printing technology.

This method will allow for complete individualisation as opposed to the limited, prefabricated options for conventional dentures.

If you have missing or loose teeth, contact Dr JJ Serfontein. We'll provide a thorough assessment to determine which dentures are a suitable option for your needs.

This has got to be the BEST dental surgery I have ever visited. Dr JJ and his entire team offer excellent, professional service, and they take great pride in making patients feel comfortable, informed and safe under their care. Being a patient with many past awful experiences with other dentists, I developed a major phobia and hate for dental visits. When I started visiting Dr JJ’s practice, however, I was blown away by the high quality of their service, as well as their compassion, empathy and emphasis on making the patient feel they were in good, capable, trustworthy hands.
