Have you gradually lost teeth over time? The team at Karalee Family Dental near Ipswich offer dentures to restore functionality and aesthetics to your smile.

Dentures are custom made artificial teeth that can be used to replace partial or full areas of your mouth where teeth are missing. These are made to resemble your natural teeth, so virtually no one will know you have them.

When do I need dentures?

When you develop gaps in your smile due to tooth loss the remaining teeth can start to shift. This can cause an alteration in your jaw structure. Facial tissue can also seem to sag after tooth loss if they don’t receive the support of a denture. Facial sagging and loss of lip volume can age your appearance prematurely

Is there more than one type of denture?

Depending on your facial structure and also the extent of tooth loss, you may benefit from either full dentures or partial dentures.

  • Full Dentures: are required when a patient has lost all their teeth on one or both arches.
  • Partial Dentures: are for patients who have partial loss of teeth and require a few areas to be filled on a particular dental arch.

Looking for a more permanent solution to tooth loss?

At Karalee Family Dental Dr Lakh Sangha and Dr Quinn Vu also offer dental implants as a more permanent solution to tooth loss. Dental implants involve the surgical placement of a small bio-compatible titanium rod to secure a crown or bridge in place.

Dental implants look natural, function as natural teeth do and (with a proper hygiene routine) can last a lifetime. Although the treatment process can be time consuming initially, dental implants are more stable compared to alternatives and help to keep your bones and mouth healthy.
