When you’re missing one or two teeth, a simple visit to a dentist can solve your problem. However, when you’re missing multiple teeth, in both the upper and lower jaw, getting full dentures might be the solution for you.
But how do you know when you need a full set of dentures? What’s even the cost of full dentures? Are full dentures in Brisbane harder or easier to get? Today, we’re going to discuss all of that and help you find out everything you need to know about full dentures.
What Are Full Dentures?
Full dentures are artificial gums and teeth that are created by a dentist to replace removed or lost teeth. While partial dentures replace only a few teeth, full dentures are there to replace an entire row of teeth at the bottom or top gum line.
In some cases, when you’re missing most of the teeth in a single gum line, your dentist may remove the remaining teeth, to make room for full dentures. No matter the type of dentures, your dentist will design your dentures to fit your mouth perfectly.

Different Types of Full Dentures
As we said, full dentures are there to replace full row teeth. However, there are different types of full dentures as well. Two distinct types of full dentures are:
- Conventional Full Dentures: Conventionally, the dentist will not create and insert dentures in a patient’s mouth right after the removal of remaining teeth. The dentist will take measurements of the mouth first and let the mouth tissue heal for a couple of weeks or months. Only after the gums have completely healed will the dentist insert the conventional full dentures.
- Immediate Full Dentures: In some cases, the dentist will insert the dentures as soon as the tooth removal is over. Even though the patient doesn’t have to be without teeth, the immediate full dentures need to realign after a couple of months. As your mouth tissue heals, the dentures will become loose. To prevent them from causing problems, the dentist will simply realign the dentures.
How to Take Care of Full Dentures
Once you receive full denture implants, you need to learn how to take care of them. When not in use, full dentures need to be safely stored. Your dentist will recommend denture-soaking containers that you can keep beside your bed, so you can insert the dentures as soon as you wake up. These containers, however, need to be cleaned daily. Luckily, you can buy denture cleaning solutions in most grocery stores in Brisbane.
