Dentures Caroline Springs
Dentures are a removable tooth replacement appliance
Dentures are a custom designed material made to fit each individual mouth. Depending on the specific requirements of each patient, there are two denture options available – ‘partial and full dentures’.
Partial Dentures – Are used to replace only one or just a few missing teeth (partial dentures require the support of existing teeth).
Full Dentures – Used to replace a complete smile.
How the procedure works
The denture process requires a number of steps. Following initial consult, scans and tray designs will be used to mould trial dentures. The scans are sent away for the dentures to be constructed. Once all the sizes and measurements fit correctly and the adjustments have been made, dentures can be secured.
