Dentures are false teeth that are worn to replace missing teeth.

 

Dentures can help you if you are missing teeth and can assist with making eating and speaking a lot easier. Dentures can also help avoid loss of confidence as the absence of teeth affects how we may appear and perceive ourselves.

So if we are missing some or all of our teeth then our quality of life and sense of confidence can be compromised. One alternative to replacing these lost or missing teeth is to have dentures fitted by your dentist Raceview. Dentures are typically made of acrylic and resin, specialist plastics and occasionally lightweight metal and are designed to look like your natural teeth

There are three main types of dentures:

  • A full denture: Replacing all your natural teeth, these rest on your upper or lower jaws or both, providing support to your face and giving it a natural, more “filled-in” look.
  • A partial denture: Replacing lost or missing teeth, this is held in place by clasps around your remaining teeth and may have a cobalt-chrome base for added strength.
  • Implant retained denture: An alternative to standard dentures, these replace one or more single teeth and are held in place by implants fixed into the jaw.

Dentures are customised by your dentist or prosthetist to fit your mouth to prevent them from being the cause of bleeding gums, swelling, and ulcers; however, even the best-made dentures will feel a little irritating at first as you adjust to how they feel in your mouth. You may need to return to your clinician for minor adjustments.
