A denture, also known as a 'dental plate' or 'false teeth', is a removable dental appliance used to replace one, several, or all missing teeth.
There are so many dentists that provide dentures treatment in Noosa.
The 2 main types of dentures are
Full or complete dentures
A full or complete denture is a removable appliance used for entirely edentulous patients (who have lost all of their teeth). The support required for full dentures comes from the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the mouth. The procedure for placement of full dentures starts after the complete restoration of the gum tissue to a healthy and favorable condition following tooth loss, which usually requires 8 to 12 weeks.
Parts of a Full Denture
The main parts of a full denture are
Denture base – the part which makes contact with the oral tissues such as the palate and bony ridges
Denture flange – border of the denture that extends into the vestibule (area between lips, cheeks, and teeth)
Artificial teeth – replacement for natural teeth attached to the denture base
A partial denture is used for those patients who have lost some of their natural teeth, while their remaining teeth are present in a healthy condition. It is a removable appliance that gains its support from oral tissues and neighboring teeth acting as abutments (anchors).
