According to the Australian Department of Health, 1 in 25 people aged 15 and older do not have any remaining natural teeth. There are several different types of dentures from which patients may benefit, depending on individual needs, aesthetic goals, preferences and lifestyle. Daley Street Dental offers highly aesthetic tooth replacement options, including partial, full, and implant-supported dentures in Alstonville, NSW.
Partial dentures can replace several missing teeth but not a complete arch. Partials rely upon remaining natural teeth for support and a secure fit, and they reduce the risk of tooth migration and additional tooth loss.
- Valplast Denture – Valplast dentures are made from thermoplastic nylon resin. These dentures are thinner, longer-lasting, and more flexible than acrylic and metal dentures.
- Acrylic Denture – Acrylic dentures are fabricated from 100 per cent acrylic and contain no metal substructure. Acrylic partials can be a temporary or permanent solution to tooth loss.
- Chrome Denture – A chrome denture consists of a metal framework that supports prosthetic teeth.
Full dentures, also called complete dentures, replace an entire upper or lower arch with custom-made prosthetic teeth. Full dentures sit atop the gums and require adhesives to remain in place.
As the name implies, implant-supported dentures rely on the structural support of dental implants to hold prosthetic teeth in place. This type of denture provides a solid foundation for a patient’s newly restored smile, and adhesives are unnecessary. Patients don’t have to worry about dentures potentially slipping or sliding out of position with implant-supported dentures.

Caring for Your Dentures
A denture can last for many years without blemishes or breaks if one practices excellent oral health habits and hygiene. Our dentists recommend brushing your dentures daily with a denture toothbrush and cleaner to remove food particles and bacteria. Some materials are too abrasive for dentures, so please avoid using toothpaste or a hard-bristled toothbrush.
It’s also important to rinse your dentures daily and avoid eating hard or sticky foods that can damage your dentures. Dentures must remain moist to prevent cracking or losing their shape. When a patient isn’t wearing their dentures, they can store them in denture solution or water.
Regular dental exams and cleans help maintain your oral health and the condition of your dentures.
