False Teeth Brisbane North: False Teeth are a dental prosthesis that replaces all or part of the upper or lower teeth. They are custom made to replace missing teeth and help with chewing, biting, speaking, and appearance. They can be made out of metal (porcelain-coated), plastic resin (acrylic), porcelain fused to metal (PFM), or full tooth crowns in gold alloy.
There are several types of false teeth:
– Full dentures – these replace all your teeth and offer full support for chewing and talking
– Partial dentures – these replace some but not all the natural teeth
– Bridges – these fill in gaps left by missing teeth when other surrounding healthy teeth support the missing tooth
False teeth are used to replace one or more natural teeth and are removable. Some need to be taken out when you eat, drink, brush your teeth, and sometimes during long trips (if it is not safe for them).
