Dentures

Dentures are among the most popular and effective replacements for loose, broken or missing teeth. They are designed to resemble real teeth, providing a natural look that feels and works like the real thing. Dentures are available in different types and materials, with a variety of styles made for different needs and situations.

There are two main types of dentures:

  • Full Dentures – dentures that replace all your natural teeth (or an entire arch of teeth)
  • Partial Dentures – dentures that replace one or more missing teeth while some of your natural teeth remain

With Gympie Road Dental, you can look forward to getting professionally made dentures that will let you eat, talk and live normally again. Book an appointment online or call (07) 3915 8888 for more information.

What Are Dentures Made Of?

Dentures are made from different materials, and the right one will depend on the structures of your gums and teeth and the level of comfort you’re looking for. They are typically made from the following materials:

  1. Porcelain – has a translucent colour that makes it look more natural than other types of dentures.
  2. Acrylic resin – made from a special polymer that’s easy to shape and modify to your needs.
  3. Metal – features a metal base that provides superior strength, toughness and stability for your dentures.

We will talk you through the various options for denture materials, including the pros and cons of each and which options are best for you. By identifying your exact needs and preferences, we can determine your best options for getting dentures that will look and feel natural in your mouth.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are often the main solution for those who need all their teeth replaced. These dentures are typically required for missing teeth caused by an injury, old age or a medical condition.

Full dentures are an ideal solution for those who need more than partial dentures for their teeth replacements, whether it’s because of their number of teeth missing or the structure of their teeth and gums. Like any other denture, full dentures are designed to restore your ability to chew, bite and talk normally, helping you live life like you would with a full set of natural teeth.

These dentures are also used for replacing an entire arch of teeth (upper or lower arch), providing reliable replacements when the majority of your upper or lower teeth are missing.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used for replacing one or more missing, worn or broken teeth. They are particularly great for filling gaps caused by missing teeth, making them one of the top dental solutions for teeth replacements and cosmetic dentistry.

These dentures are designed to work with your remaining natural teeth and gums, providing teeth replacements that work and support them to improve their function. Like full dentures, partial dentures come in a variety of materials and designs, giving you a choice of options.

Denture Implants

Most full and partial dentures are designed to be removable, but you can get full or partial denture implants if you’re looking for a more permanent solution for teeth replacements.

Denture implants are attached directly to your jawbone, providing a strong and stable foundation for your teeth replacements. These dentures are known for their superior comfort and functionality, giving you dentures that look and feel like real teeth. They’re also a more permanent, stable and durable solution under proper care.

If you’re interested in getting dental implants to replace your missing teeth, contact our team to get a full mouth assessment. We can determine whether you are a candidate for denture implants and help you identify your best options.

Denture Repair

If your dentures are damaged or have become worn from daily use, we offer basic denture repair services that can restore their fit and function. We can also modify your dentures to suit any changes in your mouth, teeth or gums that are caused by injury or natural causes. If your dentures require more in-depth repair and modifications, we can also refer you to other qualified technicians who can provide the exact repairs they need.

FAQs

What are the best dentures for me?

The best dentures for you will depend on a variety of factors such as the structure of your teeth and gums, the number of your natural teeth remaining, your desired comfort level, and your budget. We will always discuss your needs and preferences thoroughly so that we can determine your best options for dentures.

How much do dentures cost?

Your cost for dentures will depend on what type of dentures you choose, the modifications you want to make, and how complex your procedure will be. Rest assured that we will always let you know ahead of time how much your dentures will cost, so you know what to expect before making your decision.

Will dentures allow me to talk and eat naturally?

All dentures are designed to allow you to eat and talk as naturally as possible. Not all dentures, however, work the same way for everyone. Some types of dentures work better for some people than others. To determine the best dentures for you, we will need to assess your teeth and gum structures and discuss your needs and expectations.

Is it normal to experience soreness after getting dentures?

Because they are completely new to your mouth, all dentures will require a period of adjustment. This period often includes a few weeks of general soreness and discomfort in your gums. But after your gums have healed and adjusted to your new dentures, then this soreness or discomfort should subside. If pain, soreness or discomfort continue for several weeks after your procedure, you should have it checked by our dental professionals as soon as possible.
