A partial or complete denture can be a good and cost-effective way of replacing missing teeth and also provides support for the cheeks and lips. Making a complete denture or partial denture can take up to five appointments or less.
There are different types of dentures that are available, and during your initial consultation appointment, your Kallangur dentist will explain and discuss with you all of your options in detail.
Types of Dentures Available
Acrylic dentures are gum coloured tooth replacements which are commonly used, cost effective, aesthetically pleasing, and lightweight. They are recommended for people with some remaining teeth, but who may need extractions in the future. The patient’s existing denture can be modified and additional teeth added as needed.
Chrome dentures are made up of metal, are stronger, and more expensive than acrylic dentures, but have better stability. You will find them more comfortable to wear, as they are thinner and smaller.
Denture Care Tips
Dentures need to be cleaned regularly, just as you would clean your natural teeth in order to prevent fungal or bacterial infections. When you are cleaning, make sure to take your denture out of your mouth. You should remove your dentures at night to rest your gums. Clean and massage your gums to help keep them healthy.
Because dentures are artificial they will not be as stable as your natural teeth and can be uncomfortable to wear at first, but comfort should improve with time.
