Dentures | Avenue Dental Sunshine Coast

Full Dentures

Where all your teeth have been lost, the provision of plastic upper and lower dentures is the norm, and your dentist at any of our Sunshine Coast locations are happy to provide this service. Even when all due care is taken by your dentist, many patients experience problems with chewing, eating, smiling, talking, and generally functioning, particularly with the lower denture. Many people simply adapt to these shortcomings, however, unfortunately some people cannot adapt to full dentures and their limitations. The problems associated with full dentures can be greatly reduced by the provision of implants. Ask your dentist at any of our Sunshine Coast practices how implants might be able to help you.

Partial Dentures

Where some of your teeth remain the spaces can be filled with a partial denture by your dentist at any of our Sunshine Coast locations. This is the most inexpensive way of filling a gap. However they suffer from the same drawbacks as full dentures (see above) . In addition, a partial denture will get food packing between your teeth and denture, compromising the health of your gums and teeth. The cheapest partial dentures your dentist can make are made of plastic. Lessening of the problems can be achieved with the greater accuracy provided by a metal framework for the denture and these can be fabricated by your dentist at any of our Sunshine Coast locations. Avoiding the problems of partial dentures can be achieved by looking at the ‘fixed’ solutions provided by bridges or implants. Ask your dentist at any of our Sunshine Coast practices how these options may be able to help you.
