Prosthetic Dentistry has come a long way in recent years. At Walkinstown Dental Studio, we have always looked at new technology and advances in the field. Whether you need a full mouth or a simple repair done, we are fully experienced and trained to do so. We offer a variety of services:
Full (Cosmetic Dentures) Life like Appearance
Many patients are unhappy with their current dentures. They have become self-conscious because of poor appearance, fit, function or a combination of all 3. This can have a devastating effect of lifestyle choices and everyday living, with some individuals withdrawing considerably from social circles because of a lack of confidence as they feel compromised with their current teeth.
This should not be the case and using a combination of Clinical and Technical skills here at the Dental Studio we can provide you with a treatment plan that will overcome many if not all the negatives associated with wearing dentures. Patients can participate in designing their own new smile choosing from a wide range of natural looking teeth. Try ins of the teeth can be altered chair side with the patients input until a life like and natural appearance is achieved regardless of your age.
Click-Tite Overdentures (on Implants)
Now you do not need to worry about loose dentures anymore!!!! Implants both upper & lower (top and bottom) can be used to successfully hold a new overdenture in place. No more rattling of lower dentures. In the upper (top) the palate can be removed and a horse shoe design incorporated to allow for you to taste your food again while having the confidence that your new “overdenture” will not fall out. No more sticky messy adhesives.
We have completed many cases of implant retained overdentures in the last 7 years completely transforming patients’ lives. Implant overdentures is now the treatment of choice for many disgruntled denture wearers due to its very high success rate……Smile again with confidence.
Palate-Free Partial Dentures (No Palate)
If you wear partial dentures (ie if you still have some of your own teeth) sometimes the palate or plate of an acrylic /plastic denture may feel cumbersome in your mouth. This can be replaced by a very thin lightweight chrome/cobalt denture which clips onto your existing teeth which holds them in place very securely allowing you to speak and eat again with confidence. If you already wear a palate free denture they can now be designed with tooth coloured clasps so no metal is visible.
Ultra Suction Dentures
Ultra Suction is a revolutionary new system for maintaining both upper and lower dentures in place. Some patients, due to excess bone loss or health issues are not candidates for implant treatment. At the Dental Studio we will evaluate the physiology of your mouth and current dentures and inform you if ultra suction is the right treatment plan for you.
Flexi-Dentures (A Soft Material)
This is a revolutionary new concept to keep partial dentures in place. If you are missing some of your own teeth a flexi denture can be fitted. They are made of a highly aesthetic flexible nylon material which “flexes” over your natural teeth to retain it in position. There is no metal or clasps involved resulting in a very natural looking smile. They can be used for front or back teeth and in many cases there is no palate only a small side plate. See how it works
Dentures on Mini Implants
Dentures on Mini Implants
Like the Click-Tite system, this means we can place your new dentures on your implants. This means a more secure fit.
When your dentures become loose, you can find chewing and even speaking become more difficult. Many things can cause your dentures to become loose, including the shape of your mouth changing slightly – this can happen with age. We recommend a visit to our clinic where we can stabilise your dentures and ensure that you can use your dentures as though they were you own natural teeth!
