What are the different types of dentures?
Dentures can replace as many teeth as you need them to. At our Brisbane denture clinic, we offer full dentures, partial dentures and implant-retained dentures.
If you're having full dentures, we may need to extract any teeth you still have remaining. We'll leave time for your gums to heal before beginning your denture treatment.
How are dentures made?
If you decide that dentures are right for you, you'll meet our prosthetist Rod Litzow who'll guide you through the process and answer any questions you have. Getting your dentures in Brisbane is a 4-stage process:
How can I look after my dentures?
When you take good care of your dentures and your oral health, your dentures should last for 5 years or more. You should clean your dentures every day to remove bacteria, food and other debris from the surface. It's also important to continue brushing your teeth or gums, as oral health problems can affect how your dentures fit.
We may advise that you avoid some food and drink to prevent your dentures from being damaged or dislodged. If they do get damaged, contact our clinics for denture repairs in Brisbane. We'll also check the condition and fit of your dentures every time you visit us for your regular check-up.
What are the risks?
It can take a few days or a few weeks to get used to the feel of your new dentures, especially when it comes to eating. If you have any unexpected problems, make an appointment to talk to our dentists.
If you need any extractions before your dentures can be fitted, you may experience some pain, swelling or bleeding after a tooth is extracted. This should go away on its own or can be relieved with over-the-counter medication.
What do dentures cost?
Dentures prices depends on the number of teeth you need to replace, the type of dentures you choose and whether you need any other services such as extractions. We can give you a dentures quote at your consultation.
We'll also tell you all about our finance options and preferred insurance providers to help make your treatment as affordable as possible.
