Dentures in The Junction

Today’s modern dentures represent an effective and time-tested way to replace lost teeth. An incomplete dentition can impede speech, chewing and strain in jaw muscles and joints in certain individuals. Faces can look sunken without teeth. At Maple Dental, our bespoke removable appliances can restore confidence, function and enhance the appearance of one’s smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dentures can be made out of metal (cobalt chrome), acrylic and flexible nylon. This flexibility is important, particularly if the wearer is older and frail, and the mucus in their mouth is friable.

We use a local dental laboratory (located in Adamstown, Newcastle).

The dentures of today are much more comfortable than those of the past as material and designs evolve but it does take a bit of time getting accustomed to wearing them.

The longevity of the appliance depends on the user—how well they look after them and the integrity and foundation of the remaining teeth in their dentition.

The dentures are locally made and of superior quality.

Yes, you can wear the dentures in a normal fashion but like all new things, it may take a little getting used to. Most patients can function as close to normal after the initial period of getting used to their new appliance.
