Man smiling
While keeping your own teeth is preferable, sometimes the loss of teeth is unavoidable due to gum disease, illness or injury. In these situations, dentures offer a practical solution for restoring your smile.

Dentures come in a variety of designs, which means that with the right dental care, your false teeth can look just like the real thing. Replacing lost teeth not only restores the appearance of your smile, dentures can also support your facial structure, ensuring that your facial muscles don’t sag. This is important in maintaining the ability to eat and speak as you age.

Our Blacktown Dental Prosthetist will help you to select the right denture design for your specific needs.

  • Complete Dentures: Suitable for patients who are missing all their upper or lower teeth. They comprise traditional “plates” that cover your entire upper or lower arch.
  • Partial Dentures – plastic or metal: Partial dentures are suitable when a patient only has some missing teeth. It is a removable device that snaps into place around your existing teeth, filling the gaps and restoring the appearance of a full set of teeth.
  • Flexible Dentures: Flexible dentures offer an ultimate cosmetic solution, as the gum-coloured materials make the mouthpiece blend in, appearing seamless when you smile or talk. If you only need to replace one or two teeth, a flexible denture is a quick and non-invasive alternative to a dental bridge or implants.
  • Implant Retained Dentures: If you prefer a permanent denture solution, then implant-retained dentures may be for you. Featuring a narrow prosthetic design that follows the natural curvature of your jaw, this device replaces all your upper or lower teeth, and is directly connected to a pair of implants to keep them in place.

At Blacktown Dental Group, our Dental Prosthetist will work closely with you to ensure that your new set of dentures are comfortable and provide the perfect solution for your situation. Discover how we can help by contacting our practice today.
