The Journey of Your Custom Dental Prosthetics 

The Importance of Dental Prosthetics 

As we’ve mentioned, your smile is important. So, what’s the solution to maintaining it when your natural teeth are no longer up to the job? 

This is where dental prosthetics like ours step in, offering a lifeline to those facing tooth loss or damage. Dental prosthetics not only restore your smile but also improve your ability to eat, speak and maintain oral health. 

Understanding Dental Prosthetics

Let’s go through the definitions, purpose and different types of prostheses. 

Definition and Purpose of Dental Prosthetics

Dental prosthetics are artificial devices designed to replace missing teeth or restore damaged teeth. They play a crucial role in restoring the aesthetics and functionality of your mouth, ensuring you can smile, eat and speak confidently. 

Different Types of Dental Prostheses (Dental Implants and Custom-Made Dentures)

Two primary types of dental prosthetics dominate the market: dental implants and custom-made dentures. 

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone to mimic the missing tooth roots, providing a stable foundation for artificial teeth which are then fitted to the top. 

On the other hand, custom-made dentures are removable appliances crafted to precisely fit over your jaw, offering a natural-looking smile and improved oral function. 

Advantages of Custom-Made Dental Prosthetics

The main advantages to custom-made dental prosthetics are in the design and functionality. 

We design them as a tailor-made solution to suit your unique oral anatomy, ensuring a comfortable fit and natural appearance. Additionally, custom prosthetics offer superior functionality, enabling you to chew and speak with ease. 

Dental Implants: A Permanent Solution 

What are Dental Implants? 

Dental implants are revolutionary devices that mimic the structure of natural teeth. 

Consisting of a titanium post, an abutment and a dental crown, implants offer a long-term solution for tooth loss. They integrate with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing unparalleled stability and durability. 

Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants Over Other Prosthetics 

Opting for dental implants brings numerous benefits. 

Unlike traditional dentures, implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure. They also eliminate the need to alter adjacent teeth, preserving your natural dentition. 

In our experience, with proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a worthwhile investment in your oral health and well-being. 

Custom-Made Dentures: Regaining Your Smile

Types of Dentures: Full and Partial

Dentures come in two main types: full dentures and partial dentures

Full dentures are recommended for individuals missing all their teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures are ideal for those with some natural teeth remaining. 

With our experience and expertise in this area, we’re able to ensure both options are custom-crafted to fit snugly in your mouth, restoring your smile and confidence. 

Benefits of Choosing Dentures

Custom-made dentures offer a host of benefits beyond mere aesthetics. Like implants, they improve your ability to chew and speak, enhancing your overall quality of life. 

However, dentures are removable, making them easy to clean and maintain. Also, with the kind of advancements in dental technology that we employ, modern dentures are now more comfortable and lifelike than ever before, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest. 

The Process of Getting Custom Dental Prosthetics

Initial Consultation and Diagnosis

With Emergency Denture Repair, the journey towards your custom dental prosthetics begins with booking an initial consultation with any of our branches in North Perth, Wembley, Bassendean or Maddington. 

During this appointment, we will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment goals and determine the most suitable prosthetic option for you. 

Taking Impressions for a Perfect Fit

Once you’ve decided on the type of prosthetic, the next step involves our dentist taking impressions of your mouth. These impressions serve as the blueprint for crafting your custom prosthetic, ensuring a precise fit and optimal comfort. 

Fitting and Adjustments for Comfort and Functionality

After your prosthetic is made, you’ll return to your dentist for the fitting. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure your prosthetic fits comfortably and functions properly. We will also guide you on how to care for, and maintain, your new teeth for long-lasting results. 

The Pivotal Role of Dental Prosthetics

Let’s provide a general recap regarding dental prosthetics or being fitted with a dental prosthesis, whether it be dental implants or custom-made dentures.
