Natural-looking solutions for missing teeth

Missing teeth can impact not only your smile's appearance, but also your ability to eat and speak comfortably. Partial dentures offer a natural-looking and effective solution to fill these gaps and restore your confidence.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are custom-made, removable dental appliances designed to replace one or more missing teeth. Unlike full dentures, which replace all teeth in the arch, partials are supported by clasps that attach to your existing healthy teeth. This provides a stable and comfortable fit.

Finding the perfect fit: Types of partial dentures

Ongoing advances in dental technology continue to give candidates a plethora of choice. Whether you need to replace just one missing tooth or several, or whether you need partial dentures for the front teeth or back teeth, we can customise a solution for you. After our dental prosthetist assesses your individual situation and number of teeth to be replaced, you will consider wearability preference, durability of materials used, appearance and cost before choosing your partial denture.

More than just a radiant smile: The advantages of partial dentures

Partial dentures offer a multitude of benefits that go beyond simply restoring aesthetics. While filling gaps with natural-looking teeth undoubtedly boosts your confidence and allows you to smile naturally again, the advantages extend far deeper.

Enhanced appearance and confidence

Missing teeth can significantly impact your self-esteem. Partial dentures restore your ability to smile, speak, and laugh confidently, positively affecting your personal and professional life.

Improved oral health and function

Beyond aesthetics, partial dentures provide essential support for your oral health. They help prevent remaining teeth from shifting, stabilising your bite, and promote better chewing and digestion. Additionally, partial dentures help maintain your facial structure by preventing bone loss in the jaw, which can occur when gaps are left unfilled.

Enjoy your food again

With proper function restored, you can enjoy a wider variety of foods. No more struggling to chew or avoiding certain foods. Partial dentures allow you to savor your meals with confidence.

Are partial false teeth right for you?

Partial false teeth offer an excellent solution for many people with missing teeth. They can restore your smile, improve your ability to eat comfortably, and boost your confidence. While there's an initial adjustment period, the long-term benefits outweigh any short-term inconvenience.Chrome partial denture

However, it's important to consider all options. If you have no remaining natural teeth, full dentures might be a better option.

Considering suitability for partials

Removable partials are an outstanding solution for many people with missing teeth. However, it's important to discuss your individual situation with your dental prosthetist to determine the best course of treatment.

In some cases, removable partials might not be the ideal choice. For instance, if you experience frequent seizures, alternative solutions might be explored to ensure your safety. Similarly, if you have any physical or cognitive limitations that would make it difficult to remove and clean the dentures properly, a different treatment plan might be recommended.

Frequently asked questions

The ideal number of teeth for a partial denture depends on your individual situation. While some patients can manage with as few as two teeth on either side of the gap, having four or more remaining teeth typically provides better support and stability for the denture.

Partial dentures stay in place using clasps that securely attach to your surrounding natural teeth. These clasps are custom-made to fit snugly and comfortably.

The cost of partial dentures in Australia can vary depending on factors like materials, complexity, and location. Generally, it falls within the range of $1,000 to $2,500 per jaw. Some dental insurance plans and government vouchers can help offset these costs.

With proper care and maintenance, partial dentures can typically last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. Regular denture health checkups are important to monitor the fit and condition of your dentures and determine when replacement might be necessary.
