If you are missing some or all of your teeth, you may well require full or partial dentures. These can be constructed out of plastics and sometimes cast metal combined with plastic teeth. Sometimes it is of advantage to have dentures supported by dental implants.
A Full Denture
Sits within the musculature and bony support within the mouth. Many people manage with these quite successfully. Six or seven visits to our Cairns dentist
will be required to have these properly constructed. It is quite an art!
These can be made of acrylic with wire clasps or with a light metal and clipped onto the surrounding teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
Sometimes it is a real advantage to place implants under dentures to help keep them in place.
