Full (removable) dentures
Full dentures, a.k.a. complete dentures, are recommended when you have all your teeth in your upper or lower jaw missing. Depending on your budget, we can offer a variety of options.
Your full, removable dentures will be carefully customised by our in-house dental prosthetist. Later, your dentures will need to be relined by our dentist every 6 to 12 months – to make sure they fit snugly in your mouth. And of course, if you have any breakages or need urgent repairs, we’ll always help you right away.
Partial dentures are recommended if you have some teeth missing in either your upper or lower jaw. Partials sit in between your existing teeth to take the place of your missing teeth. They make talking and eating easier, and give you a more natural looking smile.
Partial dentures can be made of either acrylic or chrome. The most affordable option is an acrylic. Partial acrylic dentures can be relined or, if you require more teeth, these can be added. Acrylic dentures can also be used as an interim measure while you wait for your chrome dentures to be made.
Chrome dentures are stronger than acrylic, last longer, have less chance of breaking and generally speaking, are more comfortable for the wearer. Consequently, they are more expensive.
Implant supported over-dentures
Differing from conventional dentures which rely on suction to your upper or lower jaw to stay in place, implant supported dentures are secured to dental implants. These dental implants are placed in your jawbone below the gum line (several months before the implant supported overdenture is fitted), to secure the denture.
Implant supported dentures are by far the most secure option for denture wearers. They allow excellent bite retention (so you can bite and chew far more easily), almost as if you had natural teeth. They allow you to improve your nutritional intake and quality of life significantly. However, as they require dental implants, the price may be prohibitive for some.

Not a long-term solution, immediate dentures are simply the dentures you are given ‘immediately’ after your dentist has removed your remaining teeth. The purpose is to act as a stand-in, giving you a temporary replacement, while your gums and jaw are healing for the next eight weeks.
After your healing time, your gums and jaw may change shape. If this happens, you’ll need to have your immediate dentures relined, so they continue to fit well in your mouth. When your gums and bone have finished healing, you’ll be given your new pair to wear. Many people hold onto their immediate dentures to use as a backup, in case your regular ones break or go missing.
Denture repairs & relines
At Mills Road Dental, we have an on-site dental lab where our dental prosthetist can take care of all emergency denture repairs. If you’ve chipped or broken your denture, broken the class or simply have a denture that is uncomfortable to wear, give us a call and we’ll organise an appointment for you straight away.
All dentures require relining every 6 to 12 months. A denture reline is a simple procedure where your dentist will reshape the underside of your denture. Regular relines are necessary as over time, your gums and jawbone slowly change shape. Consequently, your dentures will need to be slightly modified or relined to maintain a snug fit.
