Problems eating and talking with your lose ill-fitting dentures?
Why not have your denture positioned firmly with our specialised dental implants to help you eat and smile with confidence. It’s life-changing so book an Implant Consultation to talk about all your options. Don’t struggle unnecessarily.
What are dentures?
If you are missing several teeth or a complete arch of teeth, carefully crafted dentures can replace the function and appearance of your natural teeth. Our denture technicians handcraft dentures based upon the dentist’s prescription, following a thorough assessment and analysis of your mouth. Our natural-looking complete dentures are comfortable and designed to fit perfectly. If you only have a few missing teeth then a partial denture can be made to fill the gap.
Benefits of dentures:
- Dentures give you a full, natural-looking smile.
- Dentures are durable and long-lasting.
- They enable you to eat more foods and speak comfortably.
- They can easily be removed.
- They give support to any remaining teeth.
- They are an affordable solution.
- They can be secured with dental implants.
Dentures are custom made for each individual patient. They can be partial (if you still have some of your own teeth) or full (if you have no remaining teeth).
What are dentures made of?
Dentures are made out of acrylic or metal-chrome based.
Different materials are more suitable than others in certain circumstances. We can advise you on what options are available.
When teeth are missing and gaps cannot be filled with something fixed, such as bridges, a denture may be a solution.
For patients that want rock-solid dentures that don’t slip, we recommend implant-retained dentures. The Placement of two to four dental implants in the upper or lower jaw can secure a denture firmly in place.
What is the process for getting dentures made?
Every denture is custom made to accurately fit each patient. We work in conjunction with a skilled dental technician to produce a result that feels comfortable and looks good. Making a denture usually takes five or six visits to our practice.
Step 1 – Have impressions taken to have customised trays made that only fit you.
Step 2 – Use these customised trays to take accurate impressions of your mouth and register your bite.
Step 3 – Try in your denture and see if you are happy with the look.
Step 4 – Get your final denture back and smile.
Step 5 – Review appointment to see if any adjustments are needed.
Step 6 – Eat and Smile freely.

What are the advantages of implant-retained dentures?
Most denture wearers will agree that the main disadvantage of regular dentures is that they often shift position. This causes discomfort as well as affects speech and limits the types of food you can eat. Implant-retained dentures have several advantages, including:
- They feel more like your natural teeth.
- As they are more secure, you will be able to eat even crunchy foods such as apples or raw carrots.
- Up to 100% of your mouth’s chewing capability can be restored.
- They are more comfortable to wear.
- There is no need for any dental adhesives.
- Your gums won’t become sensitive because of denture movement.
- Dental implants can prevent further bone density loss.
