A full denture is a removable appliance replacing all of the natural teeth and the associated tissues and is supported by the gums. Full dentures can also be retained by implants for better stability and function.
A partial denture is a removable appliance replacing one or more missing natural teeth and associated tissues. It is supported by the natural remaining teeth and gums. It replaces what is lost and preserves what is left.
Loose dentures can be remedied with the addition of implant anchors positioned by a Dental Surgeon.

The Dental Prosthetist whom you see about getting your new dentures is also the person who will make your dentures from start to finish. This enables you to discuss any concerns you may have and advise him/her of anything in particular that you don't like about your current dentures.How often should I consider getting new Dentures?
It is recommended that you consider replacing your dentures at least every 7-8 years so as to prevent unnecessary damage to your gums. It will also make adjusting to and fitting new dentures much easier, particularly on the lower gums. It is worth checking with your health fund to determine how often they will pay for replacement dentures.What is a "Reline" and how often should I have one?
If your denture is loose, a reline is used to replace the fitting surface of the denture which basically gives a tighter fitting denture. It is recommended that you have your dentures checked by a Dental Prosthetist every two to three years. This will ensure your tissue remains healthy and your denture function remains satisfactory.What should I do if I break my denture?
Hold on to any pieces/teeth that may break off as this will possibly save the cost of replacing that tooth. DO NOT try to repair the break with Super Glue as the glue is very hard to remove and makes rejoining the break cleanly and precisely almost impossible.How to clean your denture?
When cleaning your dentures,
- place a towel or face washer in the basin so that if the denture slips from your hand, the towel will cushion the fall.
- the lower denture is fragile and should not be held in the palm of the hand as you could break it if you squeeze it too hard. Hold it with two fingers and the thumb.
- with bleach can cause discolouring and unnatural looking teeth.
- Some stains may require professional cleaning. Abrasive cleaners and hard brushes can also cause unnecessary wear and tear on the plastic base resulting in the dentures becoming loose.
Your Dental Prosthetist is the best person to advise you cleaning and maintaining your dentures.
You should never consider your first set of dentures as your last. Many people believe their dentures should last forever, but this not so. Generally a denture should be reviewed every two years for remodelling/relining or replacement.
Apart from being worn down by continual use, the supporting tissue is actually changing. Even when your dentures feel quite comfortable, they should be inspected regularly to ensure no permanent damage is being done to the mouth.
If ever a sore or growth is discovered, you should immediately seek advice. These areas may be quite harmless and may only require minor adjustment to the denture, but only a professional can evaluate and rectify the situation.
