Complete Dentures


Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or “immediate”. A conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed.


Immediate dentures are unlike conventional dentures, they are made in advance and can be placed as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the period following tooth removal. Therefore, a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.



Relines and Repairs for Dentures

A Broken, worn, or ill-fitting denture does not necessarily need replacing.  We can assess very quickly if you’re a candidate for a reline.


A reline consists of adding a new base material to the tissue side of a denture so it fits correctly, just like a new denture again. Relining affects only the fit of your denture and make it more comfortable. It will not change the appearance.


Soft Lining

A permanent soft lining is a layer of soft material that is fitted to the surface of a denture. It acts as a soft cushion or shock absorber between the hard acrylic base of a denture and the gum. Soft linings can be used in the fabrication of new dentures or placed in existing dentures. Ideally, soft linings provide great comfort to patients who have sharp bony areas or chronically sore gum tissue.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.

Partial dentures are customised to a patient’s specific requirements in order to restore a person’s natural appearance and greatly improve the ability to chew and speak clearly.

A removable partial denture consists of replacement teeth attached to a gum-coloured acrylic base, which is connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place.

Natural teeth are not harmed with the use of partial dentures, in fact, they help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support.


Partials can be made of different materials, including cast metal partial dentures and acrylic partial dentures. The cast metal partial denture is usually a more rigid and permanent style of denture that offers great strength and stability as well as support for the remaining teeth. The metal is a highly compatible cobalt chromium alloy which is ultra-thin and light.


There are a number of factors that determine what type of partial denture would be best for you.  Book a consultation to discuss this with our Prosthetist.



Custom laminated mouthguards are made to fit the teeth and gums closely and therefore offer greater comfort and protection than pre-fabricated mouthguards. 

They are micron accurate and provide over 10 times more protection than pre-fabricated mouthguards. While playing contact sports custom laminate mouthguards not only help minimise dental injury but also reduce the severity of concussion.

Custom laminated mouthguards also come in the greatest colour combinations - you can even  have your team colours!


We can repair a broken or cracked denture or repair teeth that have broken away from your existing denture, whether partial or full. Overdenture repairs, chrome additions and repairs are also available. If you have a cracked denture, this can quickly become a broken denture if not repaired immediately. Teeth or additional clasps can also be added to your existing denture should you have natural teeth extracted.  No appointment is necessary for repairs and we endeavour to complete all repairs on the same day providing they have been delivered to the Clinic before 10.00am. Some repairs may require extended processing to complete.  Denture breakage may be due to underlying problems, including age, worn teeth, or poor fit. Dentures do not come with a guarantee.

Denture Care


What can you expect from your new dentures?

At first you may find some difficulty getting use to your dentures and initially have difficulty chewing some types of food.  It is important to cut up your food into small pieces and place less in your mouth than usual and chew slowly.  It is not unusual for your cheek and tongue to be bitten in the early stages of learning to use your dentures.  A self protective reflects will eventually protect your cheek and tongue quite quickly.

A lot of time and expense has gone into the making of your denture – this guide is designed to help you to look after your dentures so that you can enjoy them for a long time and to keep your mouth healthy.

General Care

  • It is important to clean your dentures after every meal.

  • Prevent breaking your dentures whilst cleaning them by placing a towel over the washbasin or filling the basin with water.

  • If you wear a partial denture, remove the denture and clean it and your remaining teeth separately.

  • Do not squeeze your lower denture in the palm of your hand, as this can damage, bend or break your denture.

  • Clean your dentures with a soft toothbrush and a soapy detergent.  Please do not use toothpaste as this is too abrasive and may abrade your denture.

  • Even with full dentures, you still need to take good care of your mouth.  You can do this by brushing your gums, tongue and palate (roof of your mouth) with a soft toothbrush.  This will remove plaque and stimulate circulation in the mouth.

  • You may choose to leave your dentures out at night to give your mouth and gums an opportunity to recover from the effort of supporting your dentures during the day.

  • Dentures should be stored in a glass of cool water.  This allows your gums to breathe and remain healthy.

  • Feeling a little unwell?  Always remember to remove your dentures if you are feeling nauseated – many dentures are lost this way!


  • Don’t smoke.

  • Limit alcohol and caffeine drinks.

  • Protect lips with moisturizing lip balm.

  • Sip water regularly throughout the day.

  • Use gravies and sauces to make food softer and easier to eat.

  • Avoid foods containing high levels of salt, acid and sugars – highly processed foods should be avoided.

  • Avoid mouthwashes.

  • Rinse with salty water instead.

  • Breathe through the nose, not the mouth.

  • It can also be helpful to use a non-alcohol based fluoride rinse and/or moisturizing gel - GC Gel is a recommended mouth moisturizer.

  • Soft tissue in our mouths are continually undergoing changes.  Sometimes, when too much shrinkage occurs in the gums supporting your dentures they can become loose and “wobbly”.  Your Dental Prosthetist can adjust dentures to relieve any sore spots caused by your dentures and improve their retention with a reline.

  • Dentures should not be painful, so if they hurt they may need some adjusting. Please contact us.

  • Should you experience infections or tissue trauma, contact us.  Do not leave unattended.

  • Dentures can trap plaque and food that will cause bad breath and gum problems. Dentures should be removed after meals and brushed with a soft toothbrush and general (soapy) detergent and rinsed with water.

  • If a denture requires repairing, please do not attempt to repair it using any of the household adhesives.  Always contact us.



for a new full on full denture

Initial Consultation

An initial assessment is made of your dental health, the appropriate alternative appliances and dental outcomes will be discussed and the processes involved. You are encouraged to ask questions as the work proceeds.

Primary Impressions

Taken with impression material in stock trays which provide the models to fabricate your custom trays.

Secondary Impressions

The custom trays are checked for fit and extensions and secondary impressions taken to produce the final models the dentures will be made on.


To determine the relationship between the upper and lower jaw using wax bite rims.  At this stage a tooth shade and mould will be determined.


The most important of all visits!

This is when you will get to see what the final denture will look and feel like.  The appearance and bite will be checked.  It is most important that should you have any apprehensions about what you are seeing or feeling, to let us know. as alterations can be made at this stage.  Once you have indicated that you are happy with the look of the new denture we then go ahead and complete, ready for issue.
