The advantages of custom-fitted, professionally-made dentures
It’s all about your comfort and best fit
Your dentures will be matched to the shape, colour and size of your existing teeth, ensuring a smooth transition. Be it metal or acrylic, full or partial – our dental specialists/dentists in Singapore ensure that you get the best fit.
Your newly fitted denture helps to retain your facial shape and gives you the freedom to eat. Other than cleaning it regularly, it requires minimal maintenance.
All in one dental check ups
Coincide one of your half-yearly dental visits with a denture review. Regular dental check-ups with a dental specialist will prevent your dentures from being worn out and causing other damage such as headaches, pain in the neck and jaw, irritated gums and premature bone loss.
When your dentures begin to feel loose or uncomfortable, share your concerns with our doctors at our dental clinics in Singapore as well. Adjustments can be performed where necessary to the existing sets to ensure that you get that perfect, comfortable fit throughout the lifespan of the denture.

What are dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth made from polymer resin materials.
They are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and help to restore your smile and ease your chewing.
What is involved in getting a denture made?
Our dental specialists/ dentists will find out the details of your medical and dental history, go through a consultation and examination, and take an x-ray of your teeth and jaws, to ascertain if you are suitable for dentures. Thereafter our dentists will discuss with you to recommend the most appropriate solution for your needs.
Then, several visits are usually required to make dental impressions and take measurements of how your jaws relate to one another to ensure that your dentures fit right.
Thereafter the final denture is cast and sent to the laboratory. When your denture is ready, your dental specialist/ dentist will fit them in your mouth and check for fit. Final adjustments, if required, will be made. There is no pain throughout the entire process.
Modern technology allows dentures to be made very accurately and well fitting. However, most individuals will still take some adjustment time to get used to wearing dentures. You may also notice an increased flow of saliva during this period.
Start off with soft foods that are easy to chew, while your comfort level improves.
Our dental specialist/ dentist may advise you to wear your new dentures at night initially, gradually decreasing in frequency until you completely stop wearing them at night.
A well-maintained set of dentures can last for years, but they may need to be relined every 2 years.
Handle your dentures with care. You should remove them at night when you sleep and soak them in a glass of water. Do not put them in boiling water as the high temperatures may distort the structure of the denture.
Dentures should be brushed daily. You may choose to use specially-designed toothbrushes and cleansers for dentures, or regular ones. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or abrasive toothpastes which will leave scratches on the dentures. If you wear a partial denture, remove it before you brush your natural teeth. Then brush your dentures and soak them in a glass of water.
Children’s teeth, like adults’ teeth, require maintenance. This means flossing, brushing and regular dental check-ups and maintenance every 6 months.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures in Singapore
What are complete dentures?
Complete dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic), nylon or metal. These are for people who have no teeth in their lower jaw or upper jaw, or both jaws.
How do I clean and maintain my dentures?
To maintain your dentures, it is recommended to brush them daily with a soft toothbrush to remove food residue and other deposits that may be wedged between the spaces.
What should I do to get used to my new dentures?
When wearing your new dentures for the first time, it may take a while to get used to it. To help you get used to the dentures, make sure to leave them in for the first 24 hours and contact the clinic in the event of sores and ulcers for re-adjustments. Sucking on a candy may also help your mouth to get used to the dentures.
Can I use Medisave for dentures?
No, according to the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board, dentures are not Medisave-claimable as it is considered a non-surgical dental treatment in Singapore. On the other hand, procedures involving surgery such as wisdom tooth surgery and dental implant surgery can be claimed under Medisave.
How much do dental dentures cost?
At Specialist Dental Group, fees for denture are $1,500 – $2,000 per arch, depending type of complexity, denture and the materials used. That being said, you may receive subsidies for your dentures if you are eligible for the Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS). Specific fee information for each dental service on our website.
How long do you have to wait to get dentures after teeth are pulled?
In most cases, it is recommended to allow the extraction site to heal for two to three months before getting your dentures made. Getting dentures too soon can otherwise cause pain and make it difficult to eat or speak. However, if there is a strong need for you to have an immediate denture after extractions, it can be done. Do note that in this case, the temporary denture you have will need to be relined subsequently to adjust the fitting as the extraction site heals, or even better to have a new denture made after complete healing.
Can you eat with dentures?
Yes, you can. Although dentures do not act as well as your natural teeth, they can help you chew better than no teeth! However, some types of food can be more challenging to eat with dentures, such as sticky or chewy foods. In the first few weeks of wearing dentures, starting with soft foods and cutting your food into small pieces is also essential. Doing this will help your dentures stay in place and prevent them from slipping. Additionally, make it a point to brush your dentures after each meal to remove any food particles stuck to them.
You can enjoy all your favourite foods with care and practice with dentures. Suppose you have any concerns about eating with dentures; check with your dental specialist in Singapore for more advice.
