When teeth are lost, the neighbouring teeth begin to shift, compromising strength and function. The gaps can cause chewing problems and can lead to a poor bite and a sore jaw. Shifting teeth can also significantly change your smile. Teeth can also become hard to clean, potentially leading to tooth decay and gum disease. A partial denture, or dental bridge, is the only way to maintain the correct spacing and prevent teeth from shifting.

A partial denture is secured in place with dental clasps which anchor onto neighbouring teeth. The disadvantage is that it places additional stress on your remaining natural teeth. Because a partial denture is anchored onto neighbouring teeth, it puts sideways or horizontal loads on these teeth which they are not used to supporting. This can accelerate the rate at which your healthy remaining teeth are lost. Many denture patients refer to this as the domino effect.


The three main options for partial dentures include: Dental Implants, Personalized Dentures and Economy Dentures. Book your FREE CONSULTATION or try our ONLINE TREATMENT PLANNER to out which option is best for you.

Dental Implants
Dental Implants function much like natural teeth and enable you to live your life without boundaries.

For over half a century, people with Dental Implants have experienced the feeling of having their natural teeth back. Dental Implants are the only way to go if you want to say goodbye to dentures, sore spots, adjustments, adhesives and eat the foods you enjoy. 

With care, Dental Implants will be with you for a lifetime. A recent study by the Institute for Dental Implant Awareness observed that 75% of denture patients would have selected Dental Implants had they known about  common denture problems. These problems progressively get worst over time, prevention is the best cure.

Personalized Dentures
Every mouth and jaw is different, like a fingerprint - no two are alike.

The average man has a size 10½ shoe. This shoe will fit about 12% of men, and about 1% of women. No matter how much they try to get use to them, 88% of men and 99% of women will be unhappy wearing these average shoes. Dentures are even more personal than shoes.

With personalized dentures, we utilize sophisticated instrumentation to measure specific jaw movements and facial landmarks. As a result, we are able to restore the natural contour of your lips and facial muscles; the denture fits better and makes it easier to chew food. In addition, your dentures will last longer and "feel sharp" for a longer period, as the teeth are properly balanced. While the process involves a lot of additional labour for our denturists and lab staff, it only requires a few additional minutes for the patient.

Economy Dentures
We use average values to design our entry level dentures. Economy dentures may work well for some people, but not for everyone as it depends how close to the "average values" your mouth is.

Personalized dentures are customized to the patient; this is the main difference between economy and personalized dentures. Economy dentures utilize average values to arrange teeth. The average values are known as the Bonwill Triangle which was established in 1854 and is still used to this day. When fabricating a new denture, knowing the distance and orientation of the teeth compared to the rest of the facial features is extremely beneficial. If your jaw differs greatly from these values, an economy denture may not function very well.
