Use the absolute very best impression materials available to ensure the fit of your denture is precise. If your dentures don’t precisely fit the anatomy of your mouth, they will not be ideal.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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