What Our Patient Think

Stages of denture construction at The Denture & Implant Clinic and why we are so different to other dentists Planning of Your Denture

Patient with Dentist 2

Free Consultation (1 hour visit)

In this free consultation we will be able to discuss your needs and desires in a relaxed calm environment. We will discuss your current situation and why you would need dentures and discuss in details the outcome that you want. It’s very important to discuss this right from the start, as many people want to achieve different things from their dentures.

Some people want a perfect smile and others want a natural look with little twists and turns in their teeth. For some people cosmetics is the main driving force for getting new dentures whereas for others it’s more of a functional thing where they just want to be able to eat comfortably without their dentures falling out. Its so important to discuss this right from the start and that’s why we dedicate a whole hour appointment to understand what you want before we start treatment.

After this discussion, we will have a thorough look in your mouth to assess your teeth and ridges which will give us an idea of how likely we are to match your wishes. We will then discuss our findings to see we can achieve your desired wants with a new set of dentures. If we believe that implant options may be more beneficial we will discuss this with you so that you can make an informed decision on which way you would like to proceed.

Examination of mouth/teeth (30minutes)

If you have some remaining teeth, we will need to book in an examination so that everything can be assessed thoroughly before we start treatment.

After these initial appointments we will send you a detailed written treatment plan along with the fees involved.

Denture Construction

Patient with Dentist 4

First Impressions (45minutes)

The first impressions are a ‘rough’ set of impressions which helps us to plan your case. These impressions are taken using alginate impression material that is placed in an impression tray. The problem with these trays is that they only come in a few sizes – extra small, small, medium, large, extra large. Most dentists will think this is acceptable but we believe that this is simply not good enough.

That’s why we custom make you a bespoke tray that fits perfectly inside your mouth so that we can record all the little nooks and crannies in your mouth to ensure your dentures are the very best fit possible.

If you have your own natural teeth – this first impression is used to examine the arrangement of teeth. The team will closely look at every tooth and plan your denture out for you so that you get the best functional and cosmetic denture possible.

Second Impression and Bite( 1hour 30minutes)

Second Impressions are taken using an extremely accurate silicone impression material. Most dentists understand that they need absolute accuracy for doing crowns/bridges but fail to use the silicone impressions for denture construction due to the high cost / inadequate training. This means that they stick to alginate, which will never pick up all the details required.

At The Denture & Implant clinic, we never cut corners and that’s why we use the best materials around to ensure you get the best fitting dentures. Secondary impressions are taken using different layers of silicone, which get more accurate with each layer. We start of with a heavy viscosity which picks up outline and then get more and more accurate with each layer until we finish off with the very light runny material that flows into all the little nooks and crannies of your mouth.

After the very best impressions are taken we then go on to take the bite with a gnathometer. This is another major difference between our clinic and other dentists. 99% of dentists will not use this device as they simply don’t have the expert training required to understand how to use it and why it’s so beneficial to their patients. If they do – everyone would be using it.

This device is an easy, comfortable way of accurately recording the patients bite and we will tell you why it’s so important further down.

Try-In – (1hour 30minutes)

We refer to this stage as the ‘Dressed Rehersal’ and it the first chance we get to see what the finished result is before we give you the dentures. At this stage we check things like the bite, fit and most importantly the cosmetics. The important aspect of this visit is that we can make changes on the dentures and check them instantly.

We always ensure that you’re 100% happy at this stage before we finish the dentures so that you know what result you’re getting before we fit the dentures.

We normally spend at least 1hour and a half at this stage to ensure we get the perfect bite and cosmetics.

Fit – (1 hour)

This visit is normally an easy straightforward procedure where we ensure the denture fits well and is comfortable to wear. We also make very fine adjustments to balance the bite to ensure that your teeth meet together at the same time when biting. This ensures stability of the denture when eating as if one side meets before the other, tipping of the denture can occur. Another few visits will be required which are minor adjustments visits.

If you’ve had denture made before – did your dentist spend all this care and attention whilst making your dentures? If the answer is no, book in to see us for a free evaluation and we can discuss how we can help you.

What Are 3D Dentures?

What sets 3D dentures apart from the traditional forms of dentures is the way that they are created. Instead of just taking one impression to mold the dentures and create a final restorative product, 3D dentures require four different impressions. Impressions are taken of the tooth surface, the gum surface, the inside surface (where the tongue rests) and the outside surface (that touches the lips and cheeks). By taking these additional impressions, dentists at The Denture Clinic can create a fully custom set of dentures.

Impression materials are placed inside of the patient’s mouth while the patient completes several different movements of the mouth as requested by the dentist. While the patient moves their mouth, tongue, and cheeks in certain ways, it helps mold the impression to the way their own muscles and mouth functions. These impressions are then used to create a custom denture that has the optimum fit for the patient.

There are so many benefits to customizing your dentures with additional impressions. 3D dentures will feel like a part of the patient's mouth, and will hold in place better than traditional dentures. Food particles trapped underneath the denture will be drastically reduced, as well as the speech and chewing efficiency of the patient. Additionally, a better fitting denture will greatly change the appearance of the patient's face and give the patient a more youthful appearance.

Complete Dentures at The Denture & Implant Clinic

Patient Receiving Dental Treatment

Complete dentures are used to restore missing teeth in patients who have lost all their teeth and therefore have no remaining teeth left.

Mouth Model

Once you loose teeth, the bone that used to hold the teeth in begins to shrink and slowly remodel. It does this slowly throughout your life and is particularly noticeable if you have been missing teeth for a number of years, especially in the lower jaw. That’s why often patients have problems with their lower dentures and struggle to keep them in. If this sounds like something you suffer from, the first step would be to come and see us for a free consultation so that we can examine your mouth to see what kind of result you can expect by using our advanced denture techniques. For this we are one of the very few accredited users of the mandibular denture suction technique developed by Dr Abe from Tokyo, Japan.

If we feel that you would not benefit from this revolutionary technique, we would advice having either some lower dental implants or mini dental implants.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are constructed when you have natural teeth of your own. Partial dentures are made from an alloy of Cobalt and Chrome. The denture teeth and gum work is built around this for exceptional cosmetics. This remarkable alloy can be precisely cast so we can utilize precision attachments such as clasps and rest-seats to help stabilize the denture. The advantages of a Cobalt Chrome denture include:

  • Increased retention (denture is kept in position by the use of clasps which hook around your natural teeth)
  • Increased stability/support as the biting pressure is directly downward onto your natural teeth which are capable of withstanding with pressure as opposed to your gums which are not.
  • Reduced rotation of the denture
  • Less coverage of your mouth which is better for your gums/teeth. Often the palate of your upper mouth can be left uncovered which improves comfort and taste sensation.
  • Stronger and thinner/less bulky
