What Type of Dentures Do You Need?

Anyone looking for a straightforward and transformative solution to missing teeth will likely have considered dentures. With both full and partial options available, dentures tend to be the most efficient choice for replacing all or multiple teeth.

Just like there are many reasons for getting dentures – from lost or damaged teeth to infections requiring tooth extractions – there are various options such as fixed, removable, and implant-supported dentures in Stirling to suit all requirements.

Whether you’re selecting dentures or are simply researching your options for replacing missing teeth, the following guide tells you all you need to know about reliable forms of dentures.

Why consider dentures in Stirling?

Dentures are ideal for not only replacing teeth aesthetically but restoring their functionality for daily use, especially for speaking and eating (therefore boosting overall health and nutrition).

Teeth rely on their surrounding structures for support, so avoiding replacing missing teeth risks remaining teeth moving and a change to your jaw/face shape.

An experienced provider of dentures in Beechboro and Stirling from First Impressions Dental can explain in detail the pros and cons of each option, as well as replacing one tooth, a full arch, or all your teeth.

Leading denture options

Well-made dentures in Stirling and Beechboro are not only easy to adapt to but a long-lasting teeth replacement designed to suit your particular needs. Depending on how many teeth need replacing, expert dentists will help you choose the best denture format typically made from resin, plastic, porcelain, or metal:

Full dentures

Full arch dentures, also known as plates, replace an entire lower or upper row of teeth. Suction between gums and plates is required to hold them in place, supporting your face while restoring functionality to those with a full arch of missing teeth. 

Partial dentures

Those with remaining healthy teeth may consider partial dentures, which clip neatly into available spaces with metal clasps. Offering stability to surrounding teeth while preventing the need for tooth extractions, removable partial dentures improve eating and speaking while restoring that beautiful smile. 

Implant-supported dentures

Also known as overdentures, implant-retained dentures are attached to implants secured to the jawbone. Typically taking a few months to complete, benefits of these durable, long-lasting dentures include bone loss prevention and a highly secure feel that improves eating and speaking.

Immediate dentures

Should you require tooth extractions, immediate dentures can be provided in the interim while your gums heal, as customised long-term dentures can only be created once the swelling has subsided. Rather than endure uncomfortable temporary fits, custom immediate dentures can be made in advance to wear straight away. 

How long will dentures last?

By working with an experienced clinic like First Impressions Dental, skilled at creating premium dentures in Beechboro and Stirling, your full, partial, or implant-supported dentures can last for an impressive 5-15 years. While natural wear-and-tear will inevitably occur, fully natural-looking dentures can withstand years of use with correct care and regular dental check-ups.
