Dentures in Sydney
The Processes and Advantages of an In-House technician

If you’re looking for dentures in Sydney then you should consider No Gaps Dental. While we’re not solely a denture clinic, we do offer high-quality dentures, denture repair and denture management services across our 15 Sydney locations.

Many people (including some dentists) consider dentures to be an antiquated solution to missing teeth. This is simply not the case. Modern dental prosthetics provide exceptional natural-looking teeth that offer excellence in terms of both form and function. Our highly skilled team custom-designs dentures that will improve your oral health and help to create a beautiful smile.

What is a prosthetist exactly?

A prosthetist is a qualified dental technician who has gone on to provide the assessment, treatment, management, and provision of removable oral appliances including dentures.

In Sydney, we also design and fit removable mouthguards used in contact sports or to help with sleep-related problems such as teeth grinding (bruxism).

The benefits of quality dentures in Sydney NSW

Across our Sydney dental clinics, many of our patients wrongly assume that dentures have a ‘false’ look about them. These assumptions are often closely followed by the notion of problematic chewing and all-round discomfort in the mouth. With modern dentures, however, these assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth.

Contemporary dentures in Sydney are far superior even to those of recent decades. Nowadays, we make bespoke dentures with great care to compliment your ethnicity, gender, and physical appearance. But also, emphasis is placed on comfort and fit, meaning that your custom-made full or partial dentures won’t jeopardise your oral health. Ultimately our modern dentures allow you to:

  • Properly chew and digest food
  • Speak clearly; and
  • Smile with complete confidence

Our contemporary dentures include:

Traditional full dentures

Made to replace an entire arch of teeth, our complete dentures are custom-designed to hug the contours of your gums for a perfect and reassuring fit.

Implant supported dentures

Sometimes known as ‘snap-in’ dentures or ‘overdentures’, these are designed to be supported using several or more strategically placed dental implants. Although fully removable, they ‘snap’ into position creating greater stability

Partial dentures

These are used when a patient still retains some of their natural teeth. We go to great lengths to ensure that they compliment your natural gum and tooth colour. Partials are convenient, easily removable and prevent your remaining

Permanent dentures

As the name suggests, permanent dentures are not removable like other dentures and are designed to be a permanent fixture in the mouth, Again held in position using a series of dental implants, they are fixed permanently in the mouth creating a hassle-free and flawless look.

About our custom mouthguards

Modern-day mouthguards, too, are far removed from the bulky uncomfortable styles of old. Instead, custom-made mouthguards are also designed in our Sydney denture clinic to fit snugly, comfortably, and discreetly in the mouth. They are specially fabricated to assist patients with dental problems such as bruxism (teeth grinding) or for those wanting to protect themselves during contact sport and allow you to focus more on your sleep or sporting activities rather than what’s going on in your mouth!

So how does the process of getting a dental prosthesis work?

The examination

First, our highly experienced dentists at No Gaps Dental will examine your teeth and gums to assess the state of your oral health. We‘ll be looking for any indication of dental infection, tooth decay, or old dental work that may hinder the dentures process. We’ll also ascertain whether any problem teeth need to be removed before fitting your new dentures.

Impression taking and measuring

Next, we’ll take careful and detailed measurements, considering crucial aspects like facial size and the specifics of your mouth. Our Sydney dentists will then take a mould of your mouth. The digital impressions we take using a 3D digital scanner, ensure your new dentures are a perfect fit.

We’ll also talk to you about aesthetics such as gum and tooth colour to make your denture appear as lifelike as possible. Once all the specifications have been agreed, our prosthetist creates your custom appliance.

The art of sublime dentures - The making process

Typically, in a denture clinic setting, the construction process would take around 2-3 weeks to complete. However, custom dentures and mouthguards are usually completed within a faster time frame. Patients may also liaise directly with our in-house denture clinic to ensure that every detail is understood and met.

Given all the information, our experts will use their artistic skill and technical ability to ensure they construct a finished denture or mouthguard that is designed to perfectly match the patient’s unique requirements in terms of function and form. Thus reducing the possibility of re-work.

First fitting here in Sydney NSW

Once we’re ready for the fitting, you’ll be asked to attend a second appointment. At last  you’ll get to see the dentures that our experts have lovingly crafted. You will be shown how to insert them into your mouth and our No Gaps dentist will check for aesthetics, fit, comfort, and bite. Loose dentures can cause oral health problems like sore gums, so having the right fit is key. 

One advantage of having in-house prosthetics is that we can carry out most adjustments in our denture clinic to ensure the best fit, on the day of fitting.

If you’re looking for dentures in Sydney NSW, call any one of our No Gaps Dental clinics across our 15 Sydney locations. We can restore your smile, however difficult you might think it is. Why not book an appointment today and see for yourself.  

Top tips from our experts, to make your dentures last

Oral prosthetics like removable dentures are a substantial investment in your overall health and wellbeing. As such, it’s vital to maintain them so that they fit comfortably and beautifully in the mouth for many years to come. Here are some top tips to do just that.

 

  • Give your dentures a thorough clean every night – Use a denture cleaning solution and a proper denture brush for best results. Ensure the prosthetic teeth and gums are cleaned as well as the part that fits into the mouth. Finally, rinse off with cool water not hot.
  • Handle with care – Modern dentures look and feel great but they are also fragile so careful handling is key. As a top tip, place a towel in the sink when cleaning to avoid chipping and cracking.
  • Store dentures in water – One of the biggest problems with oral prosthetics like dentures is that people will clean them and leave them to dry overnight. Unfortunately this can cause them to warp or twist. When this happens they become uncomfortable and problematic to wear. So once cleaned, always store them in either an overnight denture cleaning solution or water for best and long lasting results.
