Complete or Partial Dentures in Bowen Hills
As we age, we often lose one or more teeth and the surrounding tissue.
At Showground Dental in Bowen Hills, we offer dentures as a natural looking and removal able option to replace missing teeth. These artificial teeth help to restore the structure, function and appearance of your smile.
Types of Dentures
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial. If you are missing all of your teeth, you will probably require complete dentures. If some of your natural teeth are remaining, you might choose partial dentures. At Showground Dental, we offer both new chrome and acrylic partial dentures.
If you need complete dentures, you can choose between the immediate and conventional options. Conventional dentures are fitted once all of your teeth have been removed and will be ready within 8 to 12 weeks. Immediate can be fitted straight away so that you don’t have any time without your teeth. Because your gums will shrink in size after losing your natural teeth, immediate dentures may require more work to properly fit.
Removable partial dentures, or bridges, consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum coloured plastic base. They can be anchored to an adjacent natural tooth or connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place. If a tooth is lost through an accident or is too badly decayed to save with a crown, a bridge may be the best treatment of choice. Bridges fill the space created by missing teeth and they also prevent the other teeth from changing position.
