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 closely resemble your natural teeth, so virtually no one will know you have them.

Full Dentures

Because there are many options in the way 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.

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.

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.

The process of making a denture takes 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

Redbank Dental to the rescue – 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.

Solution is 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.
