Dentures and Partials in Avondale, Auckland
Dentures have replaced missing teeth for centuries but haven’t always resulted in happy patients. Our dentists’ advanced knowledge of oral function, the jaw and bone structure helps our Avondale denture wearers smile with confidence.
In addition to a better fit, patients can count on more aesthetic dentures, as well. Gone are the days of generic-looking false teeth. Your dentures will look completely natural with our customisation and precise design.
Removable Complete (Full) Dentures
Patients without remaining natural teeth can replace one or both arches with complete dentures. Typically made of aesthetic pink acrylic and carefully selected denture teeth, your smile will have lovely results.
Of course, beautiful dentures matter only if they fit comfortably and increase the variety of foods you can enjoy. Exceptional denture fit is our number one priority.
If you face full extractions, you do not have to go without teeth during the healing process. With immediate dentures, we will have your appliance ready the day of your extraction surgery. With regular adjustments during the healing process, you never have to worry about going without teeth.
Removable Partial Dentures
Remaining natural teeth provide an anchor to attach a partial denture that completes your smile. Partial dentures come in a variety of options:
- Sturdy metal base
- Lightweight acrylic base
- Comfortable, flexible base
Our dentists, Dr Najar, Dr Crum and Dr Nekrutenk, will go over the benefits and limitations of each during your consultation so that you have the information you need to make an informed choice.
For some patients, wearing dentures comes with uncertainty. Will they slip or fall during a presentation at work? Will they move during a special meal? These experiences are embarrassing, but dentures that move also create sores and eliminate certain foods entirely. Dental implants solve this problem.
Using either a bar or ball design, 4 to 6 dental implants can secure a removable denture in place. The locking mechanism will keep the denture from shifting or falling until you remove it for cleaning or maintenance.
Implant dentures give patients the confidence to maintain active social and professional calendars and to savour a wide variety of food without concern.
Implant dentures are not just practical; they also help retain healthy bone structure. Bone begins to deteriorate once tooth loss occurs. Dental implants slow the process of bone resorption and maintain facial fullness longer.
If you are someone who wishes to avoid dentures altogether but you have experienced the loss of one, several, or all of your teeth, dental implant treatment can replace dentures completely. Single dental implants or a combination of implants and implant-retained bridges are possible when completed under the experienced care of our dentists.
