Full, Partial or Immediate Dentures Brisbane

Are your teeth causing you problems? You might need full, partial or immediate dentures.

Dentures are essentially false teeth which can be used to replace one or several missing teeth. They can be made to resemble your natural teeth closely, so virtually no one will know you have them.

While it does take some time to get used to dentures, and you will have to adjust to them, the dentures of today are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

If you believe that you may need dentures in Brisbane, please contact our experienced team of denture and dental experts for advice and treatment.

Types of Dentures

Because there are many options in the way our Brisbane dentures are made and how they are applied, no longer does the ‘one size fits all’ approach work. The first thing is to find out what is best for you. Your dentist can help you go through the options and will give you guidance and advice on what is the best choice for your teeth.

Full Dentures

A conventional full denture is fitted to your mouth after any remaining teeth have been removed and your gums have healed. The healing process can take several months, and you will likely be without your teeth for this time.

With dentures, you can recapture the health and appearance of your smile after tooth loss. All dentures we make can dramatically improve chewing ability and speech while providing support for facial muscles.

Our visiting dental prosthetist, Peter Anastasia, will recommend the option that best meets your particular needs.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are a removable appliance that can replace one or more missing teeth. There are several different options with partial dentures, the most common being chrome base or acrylic base partial dentures. Your dentist or our visiting Prosthetist, Peter Anastasia, can discuss both options with you and help you decide which would be best for your individual situation.

Dentures can now be made, so they don’t require the metal clasps to hold them to the neighbouring teeth. However, for those who find they break their dentures, a stronger and supportive method can be used.

The process of making a denture involves having several appointments over several weeks – during this time a number of impressions will be taken in order to make a precise custom fit denture for you. New dentures may feel a little odd, to begin with, the muscles in the cheeks and tongue will need to get used to them, and you will need to become comfortable with taking them in and out. It is very important to remove your partial denture(s) to clean your natural teeth as well as the denture, failure to do so can lead to problems, such as tooth decay.

For more information on any of the above options, please ask your dentist.

Immediate Dentures

So, you need to have your teeth removed but don’t want to wait for the healing process to take place and go without teeth? To overcome this, our dental prosthetist can implement the immediate denture technique. Here’s what generally happens:

  • Impressions are taken of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present
  • Fabricate a denture in the likeness of your natural teeth
  • Make any necessary modifications you may wish
  • Extraction of natural teeth then your immediate denture is then inserted.

It is important that you follow the postoperative instructions of your dental prosthetist, dentist or oral surgeon very carefully.

After the healing process is complete, either a new denture will be made, or your denture will be relined to ensure the most comfortable fit possible.

How long does it take to get used to dentures?

New dentures are going to feel a little awkward or weird after you get them made – this is perfectly normal, albeit a little strange. You might feel like your dentures are bulky or loose, and you will need to get used to holding the dentures in place with the muscles in your cheek. There might also be the feeling of excess saliva and even minor irritation. Your dentist will go through all of this with you and give you the best possible care.

How long will my dentures last?

Your Brisbane dentures are built tough and will last a long time, so long as you take care of them. Your dentures may need to be relined and even remade over time as normal wear affects them. Plus, as you age your mouth naturally changes which can be cause for new dentures.

Take care of your dentures with the following tips:

  • Handle your dentures carefully; they are fragile and will break if they are dropped
  • Don’t let your dentures dry out – it can cause them to be damaged. Also, don’t wash them in really hot water because they may warp
  • Brush your dentures every day to avoid them becoming stained
  • Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft brush before you insert your dentures for good hygiene and gum care
