How do dentures work?
With full dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.
Dentures from Cosmetic Dental Point are custom-made in our dental laboratory from impressions taken of your teeth and gums, so they fit your mouth perfectly. Your dentist will determine which of the three types of dentures described below is best for you.
If you are considering dentures to improve the appearance of your teeth, contact Cosmetic Dental Point in Sydney (Kellyville and Castle Hill) to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists. We can conduct a full evaluation to help you decide which type of dentures will work best for your situation. Call us today to get that perfect smile you’ve always wanted!
Types of dentures
Conventional full denture
A conventional full denture is placed in your mouth after any remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. Healing may take several months, during which time you are without teeth.
Immediate full denture
An immediate full denture is inserted immediately after the remaining teeth are removed. (Your dentist takes measurements and makes models of your jaw during a prior visit.) While immediate dentures offer the benefit of never having to be without your teeth, they must be relined several months after being inserted. The reason is that the bone supporting the teeth reshapes as it heals, causing the denture to become loose.
A partial denture rests on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture. Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges.
