Dentures and Partials

If you suffer from full or partial tooth loss, navigating every-day situations can be tricky. Chewing and speaking correctly may be compromised. With dentures, partial dentures or implant-supported dentures can restore your smile, improve your bite force, and speak more clearly.

Dr Joseph Nyepetsi offers quality dentures, partial dentures and implant-supported dentures in Armidale, NSW.

When you restore your smile, you may find every-day situations easier to navigate and discover a better life quality.

Whether you’re looking for full dentures, partial dentures or implant-supported dentures in Armidale, NSW, the first step is an exam with Dr Nyepetsi.

The Denture, Partial Denture and Implant-Supported Denture Process in Armidale, NSW

During your initial exam, Dr Nyepetsi provides an exam, x-rays if needed, and he’ll discuss dentures, partial dentures and implant-supported dentures with you. You can also ask questions and inquire about other tooth replacement options as well, including dental implants and crown and bridges in Armidale.

If you’re a good candidate for dentures, a member of our team takes an impression of your smile. The resulting model is used to create your denture, partial denture or implant-supported denture.

Dr Nyepetsi relies on quality materials, and his attention to detail means fitting you with aesthetically-appealing dentures that also fit and function predictably.

Removable Dentures and Partial Dentures in Armidale, NSW

Full dentures are removable plates or arches of restoration teeth. They stay in place through suction and saliva. You can remove full dentures when sleeping and for cleaning.

Partial dentures are similar to full dentures, but the customised arch holds restoration teeth that only fill in the gaps where teeth are missing. Partial dentures, secured with clips, rely on surrounding teeth for support, helping to keep them in place.

When your dentures are ready, Dr Nyepetsi will make adjustments to be sure your dentures fit and function optimally.

Implant-Supported Dentures in Armidale, NSW

Implant-supported dentures rely on four to six dental implants to lock them in place. A dental implant is a slight anchor post implanted in your jaw. It is thin but durable. Implant-supported dentures are not removable.

In some cases, patients opt for an implant-supported lower denture or partial, for example. Dr Nyepetsi may make recommendations based on the unique contours of your gums and the condition of your jawbone.

Implant-supported dentures have advantages including:

  • Helping prevent jawbone shrinkage—may make your denture fit loosely over time
  • Prevent slippage—which can happen with dentures eventually because of natural jawbone depletion
  • No need for realigns for fit or denture adhesives
  • Provides a longer-lasting tooth replacement—dental implants can last for decades with proper care.
