Types of Dentures
Various materials can be used to make dentures, with acrylic being the most common. Plastic-based dentures are cheaper but bulkier and weaker. Metal-based dentures are thinner, stronger, and more comfortable, but also more expensive.
At our dental practice, we offer a range of denture options to suit your unique needs and preferences. Whether you are missing a few or all of your teeth, our team can help you choose the right type of denture for you.
Partial dentures are designed to fit around your remaining healthy teeth, making them a good option if you’re at risk of losing more teeth in the future. They can be adjusted to accommodate additional missing teeth. While they might take some time to get used to, they are a reliable and cost-effective solution for restoring your smile
Complete dentures are a solution for patients who have lost all their teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, or both. They consist of artificial teeth that are attached to a plate matching the colour of your gums. At The Dental Family Beaumaris, we offer two types of complete dentures:
- Immediate dentures are a temporary solution that allows you to have a set of dentures fitted on the same day as tooth extraction. They are not always a perfect fit and may require adjustments or relining later.
- Conventional dentures are a more long-lasting option. Moulds for conventional dentures are taken after any extractions or procedures, ensuring a comfortable and accurate fit. Although there is a longer wait time for the final set of dentures, modifications, in the long run, are not as costly.
The timeframe for getting dentures varies depending on the type of dentures and any necessary procedures. Immediate complete dentures can be applied on the same day, while conventional complete dentures require a longer wait for gums to heal. Partial dentures also require multiple appointments based on the number of healthy teeth remaining. You can talk to us for more information and a customised timeline for your specific case.
