Once you have lost a few teeth, usually the most economical way to replace them is with a denture.
Different types of dentures offered at out Bendigo clinics include…
A “full” denture is used where there are no natural teeth left. As well as just replacing the teeth, there is also gum-colored acrylic that sits over the gums, and holds the teeth in place. It also can replace some of the gum where the gum has shrunk. This helps to build up a ‘fallen in’ appearance, by pushing out the lips and cheeks into their normal positions.
These are dentures that replace some missing teeth, where you still have natural teeth. Partial dentures are usually held in place by small clips or clasps. These look like little bits of wire that wrap around a natural tooth, gripping it firmly.
We hope this gives you some idea of the different designs that are available, depending on your individual circumstances.
