New Dentures

Dentures are a fact of life for a large number of people. Fortunately, advances in dentistry have their need decreasing as time goes by.

At The Dental Junction, we do not construct dentures (except in some special cases).

There is one main reason for this.

We now have trained prosthetists. Prosthetists are not dentists, however, they are denture makers that have additional training that allows them to construct a denture without the input from a dentist. As dentists traditionally send their dentures to a prosthetist anyway, it makes sense to cut the dentist out of the equation as much as possible. As you can imagine, the cost of providing a fully equipped dental surgery is not necessary for a prosthetist. Accordingly, their fees are lower, and the service is usually provided faster.

From time to time, we do have patients that need to transition to a denture. Under these circumstances, we happily coordinate our services with the services of a prosthetist. The end result is a faster product and a lower fee.

Warning:

We strongly encourage all patients that are planning to replace their partial dentures to have an examination at our practice. Although we respect and acknowledge prosthetists, they do not have the years of training in dentistry that we do. Of course, they are trained well and recognise if you need our services first, however, there is nothing more frustrating to our patients, than to have a failure under a brand new denture that has them having to purchase another new denture because of an underlying problem.
