What is a Dental Prosthetist? (DP)
A Dental Prosthetist (DP) is a qualified and skilled member of the dental profession specifically trained to construct, fit and maintain dentures and all other professional denture care services. DP's can also provide custom fitted sports mouthguards.
What are Dentures?
There are many different types of dentures such as Full, Partial, Flexible or Implant. Your Dental Prosthetist will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are missing and need to be replaced.
What is a Reline?
How long do Dentures last?
How long your denture last depends upon how well you look after them. Just as we need to maintain our natural teeth with regular check-ups, we also need to check our mouths and dentures for wear and fit every 12 months.
During a consultation, your DP can provide you with a detailed assessment of the condition of your dentures and the cost of any recommended services.
With correct care and maintenance, it is reasonable to expect your denture to last between 5 - 10 years or in some cases longer, but only if you have had regular check ups and relines as required.
How much do Dentures cost?
We are unable to give exact treatment costing without assessing and examining the patient individually. If you would like information on dentures and/or a quote please contact our clinic for a no obligation free consultation on (07) 3883 2400.
Do you accept Private health funds and DVA gold cards?
Yes, we have a HICPAS terminal on site in which we can do fast quotes and claims on the spot. James McNab is a Veterans Affair provider so therefore we also accept DVA Gold cards.
