Dentures are removable appliances used to replace missing teeth and the adjacent tissue. Camira Dental has been servicing the denture needs of Ipswich and Brisbane locals since 1992. Contact our friendly team to inquire about full or partial dentures today.
Quality Dentures for All Needs
Dentures are a way to replace missing teeth or teeth that have been damaged by wear, trauma, decay or gum disease and will require extraction. Millions of people worldwide wear dentures, as they offer the most cost-effective way to replace missing teeth. Dentures are generally removable and are made of acrylic or a combination of metal and acrylic.
If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, dentures might be the solution. They give you all the functionality of healthy teeth, such as chewing, as well as a natural and beautiful smile.
Our dental care team has helped numerous patients get high-quality dentures over the years. Collaborating with quality Australian laboratories, we get you comfortable, natural-looking and well-fitting dentures.
Our team is big on looking after your dental health in a thorough and pedantic way. As a well-establish local clinic, we take pride in offering high-quality and gentle care. If you have any questions or concerns regarding dentures, we’re here to help.
Full and Partial Dentures for Ipswich and Brisbane Locals
There are two types of dentures: full dentures (replacing all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw or both) and partial dentures (replacing only some teeth). At Camira Dental, we provide our patients with both full and partial dentures, based on each patient’s needs.
Both full and partial dentures are used to restore both function and look quickly and efficiently. Our experience is that most patients manage well with a full upper denture which fits in well by suction. However, full lower dentures can pose problems with the fit, as they don’t have the same suction as upper dentures. Therefore, we’ll always try to preserve as many teeth as possible, particularly in the lower jaw.
For patients who are missing all of their natural teeth, we can construct full dentures. They bring back all the chewing functionality, as well as the appearance of a beautiful, natural smile.
If you’re missing some of your teeth, partial dentures can be used to fill in the gaps. With partial dentures, there’s the advantage of keeping most of your natural teeth, as partial dentures are easier to wear.
Our most often requested type of dentures is immediate dentures. An immediate denture is for patients who need teeth out but who don’t want to have any time without teeth.
Immediate dentures are made in advance and are fitted the same day the teeth are removed. The dentures act as a mould to shape your gums whilst they heal. While it is difficult to eat for about two weeks our patients always appreciate having no time without teeth.
What to expect on your visit
If you suspect you might need to visit the dentist, whether for a regular check-up or a specific problem, the first step is to give us a call. Our friendly dental assistants can help you with most inquiries, booking you in for a further consultation or treatment.
When you come in, your dentist will have a discussion with you about your needs and propose treatment. At Camira Dental, we take pride in telling the truth about patient needs, never engaging in up-selling.
You’ll get an upfront quote on the full cost of treatment before starting. If needed, it’s possible to prioritise treatment to spread out the cost. We won’t start any treatment without your verbal consent to proceed with the plan.
We use innovative pain-free techniques, providing gentle care. If you have sensitive teeth or a fear of the dentist, don’t hesitate to let our team know. We’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable during your visit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where are my dentures made?
All our dentures are made locally in Australia, ensuring a high-quality product.
How long do you have to wait to get dentures after teeth are pulled?
If your teeth need to be extracted, approximately 6-8 weeks of healing time will allow for any swelling to go down. This ensures that your dentures will fit well. In the meantime, you’ll get a set of immediate dentures to wear. Our team are happy to talk you through the timeline of full treatment before you commit.
How much is a set of dentures?
The total cost of treatment will depend on whether you’re getting full or partial dentures, and whether any teeth need to be extracted first. We always disclose the full price to you before starting and offer flexible payment options to spread out the cost. Read more about our fees.
How long do dentures last?
Acrylic dentures last about 5-7 years, but metal partial dentures can last much longer, up to twenty years.
How long does it take to get dentures?
In most cases, dentures take 2-5 visits to construct depending on the type of dentures. Faster emergency dentures can be made by special arrangement. We have considerable experience in the clinical stages of denture construction, so if you need dentures, contact our team for a consultation.
