Nobody plans to lose a tooth, or multiple teeth. Alas, a missing tooth is a reality that many people face. Contrary to what our parents told us, tooth loss it not always a result of poor hygiene. In fact, it is often a result of an accident or congenital absence – wherein the baby tooth was not replaced by an adult tooth.
Gaps caused by missing teeth can potentially create problems with speech and eating. Regardless of how your tooth/teeth were lost, there is a denture solution for you. At Hamilton Dental, we specialise in complete and partial dentures in Brisbane.
Complete dentures are used to replace all the teeth in either the upper and/or lower jaw. You can also replace an entire mouth full of teeth with a set of complete dentures.
Because you are attaching artificial teeth to empty gums absolute precision is required. To fit dentures well your dentist needs to take a mould of your jaw and fit them to the unique shape of your jaw and bite.
Your mouth and jaw will change on their own accord over time, unfortunately, your dentures will not naturally adapt. You will at some point need to get them remoulded or replaced.
Provided you care for your dentures well, they can last upwards of five, sometimes even ten years. To ensure your smile stays bright you need to choose quality.
Hamilton Dental dentists use high-quality acrylic and expertly match their tone and shape to suit your mouth.
Partial dentures are designed to replace one to a few missing teeth. They’re also completely removable.
Partial dentures can be attached using a removable metal clasp with the tooth/teeth are mounted upon. Or you can opt for a precision attachment.
Precision attachment uses a lock and key style action to secure the denture. The lock part is attached to crowns or fixed bridge work, and the denture fits on the key which connects into the lock.
The beauty of precision attachment partial dentures is the points which the tooth fixes on the jaw is completely hidden. As the name suggests, the precision attachments lock-and-key fixture fit with complete precision which makes them comfortable and practical.
With the high-quality products and expert skills of your Hamilton dentists, you won’t even notice the difference between your natural teeth and your new ones. The team expertly match your partial dentures in colour and shape.
