Complete and Partial Dentures
Dentures provide Townsville patients with a removable replacement for missing teeth and peripheral tissues. At Casey Dentists, we provide two types of dentures –complete and partial.
Highly experienced dentists at our denture clinic in Townsville will design your dentures after any teeth have been extracted and the gums have started to heal. In most cases, patients are fitted with complete dentures around 8-12 weeks following extraction.
Alternatively, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be worn as soon as the teeth have been removed. Consequently, a patient doesn’t have to manage without teeth during the healing period.
During the first few weeks after tooth extraction, bones and gums shrink. As a result, immediate dentures need more adjustments than conventional ones to ensure a proper fit during the healing period. Generally, we consider immediate dentures a temporary measure until a patient’s conventional dentures can be placed.
Patients at Casey Dentists can also opt for removable partial dentures at our Townsville practice. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-coloured acrylic base and a metal framework that holds them in place. The only stipulation for partials is that patients must have some natural teeth remaining in their upper or lower jaw.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I get dentures?
The denture procedure starts with a comprehensive examination and discussion regarding your options and the best type for you, taking into consideration your requirements and budget.
We offer various interest-free credit plans paid in low monthly instalments to help with the cost of dentures in Townsville. Below is a brief outline of how your dentures are made:
- The dentist will take a series of impressions of your jaws to gauge how they relate to each other and how much space is between them
- These impressions help us create wax forms, models or plastic patterns matching the exact shape and position of the denture to be made. The model is tried in the mouth several times and assessed for fit, shape, and colour before casting the final denture.
What are the benefits of dentures?
The obvious benefit of dentures is they help provide a natural facial appearance and can potentially increase the wearer’s self-confidence. But that’s not all.
- Dentures give a more rounded appearance to the face by providing support for the lips and cheeks which can often give a sunken look in Townsville patients with missing teeth.
- People lose the ability to chew their food correctly when their teeth are missing. Dentures improve biting and chewing functionality. As a result, food is more easily digested as it moves through the body, enabling denture wearers to reap maximum nutritional benefits from the food they consume.
So, not only do complete and partial dentures improve the appearance and health of the smile and face but also of the body too.
When teeth are lost, people often find their speech is affected, and they have difficulty pronouncing certain words, even more so when canines and incisors are missing. When you opt for dentures from our Townsville practice, you should notice an improvement in your speech.
What are the disadvantages of dentures?
Dentures are not a permanent solution to missing teeth and must be taken out of the mouth to clean and rest your gums overnight. They can initially feel uncomfortable, and it may take several weeks to get used to them. Some words may also be difficult to pronounce, but this will get better over time.
Is there an alternative to a removable denture?
One of the problems with dentures is bone resorption, which causes the jaw to shrink shape over time and dentures to lose their fit. Loose dentures can be a source of embarrassment for the wearer, mainly when speaking or eating.
Many of our long-standing Townsville denture wearers request implant-supported over-dentures because of difficulty stabilising the lower denture due to severe bone resorption. Up to 5 dental implants surgically inserted into the jawbone can fully retain and support an immovable denture.
While the cost may be greater, this alternative looks incredibly lifelike and feels more like natural teeth.
