Full Dentures & Complete Dentures
Full dentures replace all of the teeth on the upper and/or lower jaw. False teeth are generally made from acrylic resin (a durable plastic). A full set of dentures are required when there are no remaining teeth, or all the remaining teeth on the upper and/or lower jaw are being extracted by a dentist. Every complete denture made at our clinic is customised to the patient’s mouth.
Full Dentures & Complete Dentures FAQs
Full dentures are made out of a hard acrylic with high quality false teeth to replicate a natural set of teeth as much as possible. The shade and shape of the teeth are carefully selected in the consultation stage, so you are aware of what the end product will be through every step of the process.
Full dentures and complete dentures are simply two different names or terminologies used to describe dentures (also known as false teeth) that can replace all the teeth on the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. They are commonly used if you have experienced substantial tooth loss.
Like most new things, it does take time to get used to full dentures or complete dentures. You may notice increased saliva production. It will take some time to get used to having prosthetic teeth, so you will have to be patient.
When eating, try to stay away from overly-solid and hot foods, as your tissue heals and becomes acquainted with your dentures. A good way to manage new dentures is to cut your food into smaller pieces, making it easier to chew and consume.
