Dentures

Dr Mark Chung (Dentist) offers affordable dentures as an efficient solution for full mouth restoration. Dentures are a cost-effective way to rehabilitate the smiles of people with extensive tooth loss.

Sometimes dentures can have teeth added to them in the future, should you require any extractions or lose a tooth to gum disease. Others cover your entire arch, replacing all of your teeth (upper or lower) at the same time.

Dentures have been around for years, because they are a tried and true solution for so many people. When Dr Chung specifies your denture design to your preferences, you can have a well-fitting prosthesis with the aesthetics of a white, straight smile.


Adjusting to a new denture can take a bit of practice. From speaking with your denture to chewing at mealtime, it’s best to take things slow. Practice talking to yourself in the mirror, as your lips learn to take on a slightly different pattern with your new prosthesis. At meals, start out with softer-textured foods and cut them into small bites.

It’s difficult to say how long adjustment periods take, as everyone is different. Some need a few weeks while others adapt to their new denture in just a day or two. Just like a new pair of shoes, a removable prosthesis can take some time to “break in”.

To prevent oral infections or buildup on your denture, it’s important to remove it nightly. Soak your prosthesis in an approved cleansing solution and then brush it thoroughly the next morning, rinsing it off before putting it back in your mouth. At night and morning, clean your gums with a soft washcloth or extra-soft toothbrush and brush your tongue.

Be sure to bring your denture with you when you come in for a checkup every six months!

Are you struggling with getting your dentures to fit securely all day? An overdenture could be a great alternative!

Stabilised dentures (overdentures) fit on top of mini or traditional implants to keep the prosthesis in place. Depending on the situation, anywhere from 2-4 implants are usually all that’s needed. In some cases, Dr Chung can retrofit your denture so that it attaches to the implants, which are added at a later date.

Plus, traditional dentures are affordable enough that if you hope to get dental implants in the future, you won’t lose sleep over the modest investment you’ve already put into your oral health.

Quality Materials

We use the most durable denture materials for optimal performance and aesthetics. Some are practically indestructible, allowing the prosthesis to last several years. Others are flexible, for improved cosmetics and comfort, clasping onto the teeth around them.

Depending on how many teeth you’re missing and what you want to gain from your new denture, Dr Chung will help you weigh the advantages of our various denture designs to find the one that’s best for you!
