Let Care Dental Camberwell Restore Your Smile

With the introduction of dental implants and other modern treatments for missing teeth, many people consider dentures outdated. However, dental technology has enhanced dentures.

Dentists now use durable, quality materials to custom-fit dentures for each patient. While typically not permanent solutions, dentures are tooth replacement options that can last several years, even decades. If you’ve suffered from tooth/teeth loss, consider high-end dentures from Care Dental Camberwell.

Types of Dentures

Depending on how many teeth are lost, several different denture options exist. At Care Dental Camberwell, we offerimplant-supported dentures, full and partial dentures. Book a consultation with our office to get a full examination of your teeth and gums. After your consultation, our team can recommend the most appropriate type of dentures for your situation. When it comes to appearance, you’ll be able to choose the material and colour you think best fits your aesthetic.

No matter what type of dentures you get, proper care is simple but crucial. Use a soft brush, water, and denture paste to clean your dentures each night, along with your regular oral hygiene routine.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are mainly for use between your appointment and the arrival of your custom-fitting dentures. The most common use would be it being used as an interim replacement immediately after extractions of your tooth/teeth while we wait for your gum and bone to heal. These dentures are somewhat like practice for the real thing.

Wearing immediate dentures allows your mouth and jaw to become familiar with how dentures feel. Once your custom-fitted ones arrive, you’ll feel more comfortable eating and speaking.

Full and Partial Dentures

Full dentures replace one or both entire rows of teeth, they comprise of artificial teeth and gums and cover most of your jaw. A well fitting denture will act like a suction, staying in your mouth during chewing and speaking.

Partial dentures are used to replace a single or multiple teeth but less than a complete row of tooth loss in a upper or lower jaw.. It can be made with a plastic/acrylic base or a metal framework, holding the replacement teeth in place.

Both full and partial removable dentures are beneficial for several reasons, including:
