Replace your missing teeth with our high-quality dentures that are easy to maintain and look nearly as good as your original teeth!

It can be heartbreaking losing your natural teeth and having to wear removable dentures is a very traumatic and debilitating experience. Loose dentures are uncomfortable and embarrassing to wear. Fortunately you don’t need to suffer anymore…

Nearly invisible dental implants can be used to help stabilise loose dentures.

Depending on the amount of implants placed, removable dentures can easily clip onto the implants. Where a larger number of implants are placed, fixed bridges can be fitted.

Have you lost your natural teeth to accident or disease?

Suitable dentures could give you the beautiful smile you deserve…

Dentures are removable prostheses made to replace natural teeth that have been lost due to accident or disease. Dentures are complete if there are no remaining teeth. If there are some teeth remaining then a partial denture can be made to fit around the remaining teeth.

Dentures - Full And Partial

With the improvements in dental implants and other techniques in recent years, dentures are not as common as they once were. However, they can still be very effective for many people. 

The denture is less costly than non-removable solutions, such as bridges and dental implants. For some patients, because of physical health or economics, it is the only option available to them.

Need affordable, well-made dentures that are comfortable to wear…?

A removable prosthesis, such as complete dentures, can restore function and appearance in the mouth as well as the surrounding facial tissues.

Your qualified Bay Dental and Orthodontics Prosthodontist can provide top quality new dentures for you that are well-made and comfortable to wear.

With a good daily cleaning routine and regular visits to the dentist, dentures can help you lead a healthy and natural lifestyle. Of course, even with the best of care, it may be necessary to have dentures remade after a number of years. This is because the bony ridge in the mouth that dentures rest on goes through natural changes over time, causing dentures to fit improperly.

Whenever you sense any change in the way your dentures work or feel, your prosthodontist can provide new dentures or reline your existing dentures to improve their level of fit.

Comfort is a major factor in the success of removable dentures. Appearance is another. Initially, a removable denture can look aesthetically pleasing and function effectively. However, bone loss in the jaws can cause dentures to lose their fit after a while.

The emphasis in dentistry has shifted to providing edentulous patients with dental implants to support their dentures while there is still enough jawbone available, rather than waiting until large amounts of bone have been lost. 

Removable dentures are simply an interim solution for many patients who eventually opt to pursue dental implant treatment.

Partial Dentures – a more affordable alternative to fixed bridges

Partial dentures are used as an alternative to fixed bridges in replacing missing teeth. They are often simply an interim solution for many patients who eventually opt to pursue dental implant treatment.

The partial denture has clasps that fit around the remaining teeth to help stabilise it, and utilises both the remaining teeth and the soft tissues for support during chewing.

Temporary partial dentures are usually made from acrylic, while long-term partial dentures are made from acrylic teeth fitted onto a cast metal framework. The clasps can be made from a tooth-coloured material so that no metal is visible when you smile.

Prosthodontists

Prosthodontists, like orthodontists, periodontists, endodontists and oral surgeons, are specialists in one specific field of dentistry. Imperfect teeth, whether by birth abnormality, traumatic accident or natural decay, can be replaced with attractive, functional teeth in the office of a prosthodontist.

What does a prosthodontist do?

A prosthodontist will usually treat the more difficult dental problems such as people who are missing many teeth or have significant functional or aesthetic problems. While the general practitioner is capable of handling most simple crown and bridge procedures to replace and repair missing teeth, the prosthodontist should be consulted for the difficult and complex type of dental treatment involved in restoring an entire arch or the whole mouth.

Patients considering dental implants or major changes in their appearance should consult with a prosthodontist to assure that they are receiving the best possible care for their teeth. These difficult treatments require the expertise that is available from a qualified prosthodontist.

Prosthodontics and your health

Having good teeth (natural or artificial) or tooth substitutes helps you to maintain your health. Proper chewing (mastication) of food is essential especially as you grow older. If you can’t chew properly, it is more difficult to gain the nutrition that you need.

Being able to chew effectively also helps you maintain your quality of life. Eating has become much more than a necessity. It is also a major social function that grows in importance as we age.

The goal of your prosthodontist is to enable his patients to eat without the embarrassment or pain associated with poor fitting dentures or poorly constructed dental prostheses.
