Dentures & False Teeth Richmond NSW

Replace teeth with this widely popular treatment

A popular and widely used option for replacing missing teeth, dentures can either be complete – they replace an upper or lower arch – or they can be partial –filling the space left by several missing teeth preventing the remaining teeth from moving out of position. Dentures can be made entirely from acrylic, or may be bonded with metal to provide additional structural support.

Replace missing teeth with Dentures

Partial Dentures are made from a detailed mould of your gum contour and remaining teeth. Dentures need to fit precisely, from your initial assessment appointment; through to receiving your completed denture can take approximately four to five visits.

Complete dentures are secured in place with adhesive gel and suction, while partial dentures are held in place by clasps, which attach to your natural teeth on either side of the space. Both complete and partial dentures should remain stable at all times. If you notice your denture starts to become loose or slips when you speak, cough or chew, you should schedule an appointment to have it adjusted.

Missing teeth can, over time, cause your gum to alter its shape and as such, your denture may not fit as snugly as it did when first placed. Relining is when the base of your denture needs to be reshaped or entirely replaced so it fits comfortably and remains secure. Relining can often be completed in a single appointment taking 1–2 hours.

For your convenience, we have a prosthetist available at our practice.

After wearing dentures for a few years the gum and bone underneath keep reabsorbing until you get to a stage it will be impossible to function with any dentures, especially on the lower jaw. The only option, in this case, is wearing an implant-supported fixed or removable denture, this will stabilise the lower denture after bone loss.
