Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics that are designed to look and function like natural teeth. They are used to compensate for one or more missing teeth, and are available as partial and complete sets of teeth. Patients in Townsville elect to have dentures for tooth replacement if they are not candidates for dental implants, or if they are looking for a budget-friendly tooth replacement option.
You don’t need to have an entire row of teeth missing to get dentures. There are different types of dentures available to suit patients who are missing a number of teeth. At Deeragun Dental we offer all of the following:
Full Dentures: Replace a full arch (upper or lower row) and restore your smile completely.
Partial Dentures: Typically replace three or more missing teeth in a row and fit between your remaining natural teeth.
All types of dentures are designed to match your natural teeth so your smile appears full and facial muscles are supported.
Your dentures Townsville are custom designed to fit your smile, but did you know that improperly caring for them can cause them to become distorted? Most removable dentures must maintain moisture to retain their shape. Be sure to wash them after eating, gently clean them daily, and allow them to soak overnight in a denture soaking solution. This will keep your dentures clean and free of stains, which ultimately helps your smile look its best.
If you’re missing one or more teeth and are thinking about getting dentures in Townsville, you will first need to have a professional consultation with our dentists in Townsville. During this time, you can explore your tooth replacement options, ask questions and find a treatment plan that suits your personal situation.
If you need one or more teeth removed, the process takes a few steps while you wait for your gums to heal from the tooth extractions. An impression will then be taken of your gums and supporting teeth and bone beneath the gum, which will be used to fabricate your dentures in a dental lab.
Once your dentures are ready, you can begin wearing them on a daily basis. The first few weeks will be an adjustment period, during which you will adapt to the feeling of dentures, as well as learning how to manipulate your tongue and cheek muscles to keep them in place.
