Dentures Narre Warren south

Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

 

The dentists at Amberly Dentistry will of course advise you on which prosthesis is best for you.

Which type of denture do you need?

Complete Dentures

When it comes to your replacement teeth options, complete dentures can be either conventional or immediate. Made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, conventional dentures are ready for placement in the mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed. Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be fitted as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.

However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the first weeks following tooth removal. Therefore, a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures  is that they require more adjustments (relines) to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-coloured acrylic base, which is connected by a metal framework that holds the dentures in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
