Is a new profession in the dental industry. We are independent Denture Specialists that work closely with our patients to construct dental prostheses that work with their lifestyle, appearance and budgets.
Has extensive training specializing in implant-over dentures, complete sets of dentures and partial dentures that replace one or more teeth.
This is a dental Doctor, and though they are highly trained throughout dentistry, a Dentist does not make your dentures.
The impressions/moulds are taken at the Dentist’s office then sent off to a dental laboratory where the work is hired out. The Dental Lab Technician is then required to make a set of dentures without meeting the patient.
Although the Dentist will check the work after it is complete, design modifications required throughout the construction of the prostheses rely heavily on communication between the lab and the dentist and they may or may not be missed.
If you have natural teeth require work then we will refer you out to a Dentist or you can see your own.
