Full Dentures

A Full Denture is made to replace all of your upper teeth, lower teeth or both when all the natural teeth are missing. While it can be made to closely resemble your Natural teeth you may want to make changes to improve your smile.

Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the adjacent crowns. This is a more natural-looking appliance.

Chrome Dentures

Chrome Dentures are made from cast metal and considered of all the different types of denture to be the one most suited to being used as a permanent partial denture because it is one of the strongest available metals that does not irritate the mouth. Unlike plastic partial dentures which are clipped onto the remaining teeth, the chrome cobalt partial denture actually rests on the teeth. The clasps ensure the denture remains firm and prevents any damage to your mouth's soft tissue caused by up and down movement, rubbing or gum irritation. The chrome partial denture is by far vastly superior to plastic partial dentures and your gums will stay healthier because the pressure of your bite and the chewing forces that you use when eating, is shared between the gums and any teeth which are remaining. In some cases you may be able to have an open palate because with chrome dentures, there is less material covering the soft tissue in your mouth, this also allows you to taste better and improve detection of hot or cold temperatures which in turn, reduces the risk of scalding the mouth.

Flexible Dentures

Flexible, nylon-based dentures can look realistic, stay securely in place and be more comfortable to wear. Instead of metal clasps, they have thin finger-like extensions that fit or snap into natural concavities in the crowns of the teeth near the gum line. The flexible dentures also provides an option for cosmetic improvement of adjacent teeth that appear elongated due to gum recession:

Cosmetic dentures

A cosmetic denture is unique and individual in its construction. It can deliver results that are incredibly natural looking and so realistic that no-one will know you’re wearing it. Advanced technology and our understanding of the natural morphology of each tooth, means we can construct teeth from scratch, as opposed to a standard pre-fabricated denture. The level of detail we provide to each tooth means that it is unique in shape and colour. Such detailed construction also makes for a seamless result when constructing a partial denture. We’re able to match and blend your denture teeth with your existing natural teeth so well no one will pick the difference. Cosmetic dentures can restore your natural look. (see example #7).

Immediate Detures

Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal, therefore a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

Relines

Relining replaces the fitting surface of the denture, like retreading a car tyre. Dentures that fit well during the first few years will not necessarily fit due to changes in the mouth, such as medication, weight loss, age, etc.. and may require relines. When dentures no longer fit well, the correct action is to seek follow-up care. Adhesives may compensate for gradual loosening of a denture, but it is only a temporary solution; it does not solve the problem. Relines should only be done once or twice due to anatomical changes but it is advised for the whole denture be replaced every 7 years.

Repairs

No matter how well made your denture is, it is important to know that it is not immune to damage, accidents or breakage. In fact, your denture is not built to withstand sudden or sharp impact. Should you drop it on the floor or accidentally knock it off your bedside table, your denture could quite easily chip, fracture or even break in half. If that happens, contact us for assistance.

Soft Lining for comfort

A temporary soft liner is placed in a new or old denture in order to (1) help improve the health of your gum tissues by absorbing some of the pressures of chewing ( acts as a tissue conditioning material ) and (2) helps to determine the maximum retention possible by utilizing undercuts in the bone and gum which hard liners may not be able to negotiate without causing irritation. Soft liners will spring around these undercuts and allow for greater retention than hard liners might be able to produce in the same mouth. If we find that temporary soft liners provide enhanced retention, we will then be able to determine if we should replace them with a more permanent type of soft liner in the future or whether a hard liner is indicated.

Sports Mouth Guards

Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury. Every year thousands of people, including children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimised by wearing a protective, custom-fitted mouthguard. Damaged or knocked out teeth, broken jaws and cut lips can be sustained when playing sport. Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to your face, which might otherwise result in an injury to your mouth or jaw. Dental injuries can result in time off school or work to recover, can be painful and disfiguring, and may involve lengthy and complex dental treatment. The cost of an injury to your teeth or jaw far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard.
