Dentures Cairns

We provide the best available removable prosthetics to our clients

With years of combined experience in constructing natural-looking dentures, Future Dental provides the best available removable prosthetics to our clients.

There are several different types of full dentures and partial dentures available.

Full denture services at Future Dental

Our full dentures are characterised to simulate natural teeth and gums, so they don’t look like the standard pink gum denture that never looks natural. Tinting of the gums looks like real gums and plumping of the denture flange is done where lip support is needed to prevent creases and lines in the lips.

A clear palate can be added for those who are concerned the denture will be visible on the palate when laughing or yawning. Even gold fillings can be added to simulate your own teeth before they were removed if that is how your teeth looked.

We don’t make denture teeth look like a row of piano keys, all perfect and even, as natural teeth rarely look like that. It can be done if that is what you want.

Partial denture services at Future Dental

Partial dentures can similarly be characterised. Many people do not like the appearance of the metal clasps on partial dentures that clamp the denture to your natural teeth. This can be overcome with a newer type of partial denture called Valplast.

This type is a very natural-feeling denture that is very thin and strong and the clasps are incorporated in the pink plastic material and blend in with the teeth to look just like you are not wearing a denture at all. They are now one of our most popular types of partial denture. There are three material types available for our partial dentures.

  1. Acrylic. This is the cheapest type and has a shorter life expectancy than the other two types but it has a number of advantages. They are quick to make, can often be quite easy to add another tooth if one of the supporting natural teeth are lost and can be made as a temporary denture for various reasons or a cheap spare for those who feel very insecure about the thought of something happening to their denture.
  2. Metal Based (Chrome Cobalt). These are the strongest, longest lasting and most robust partials but also the most expensive. They tend to show the metal clasps but this can be overcome in some cases by incorporating precision attachments to crowns on natural teeth that support them but this becomes a fairly costly exercise.
  3. Ultraflex Flexible Nylon Partial Dentures are now amongst the most popular choices for partial dentures. They replace the older technology of Valplast. Ultraflex partial dentures have significant advantages over the other two types above.
  • Firstly they have no metal clasps which eliminate the biggest aesthetic problem of both other types.
  • Secondly, they are flexible and quite easily seated.
  • Thirdly, and unlike Valplast, they can be repaired, relined or have additional teeth added after if a natural tooth is lost.

The cost of Ultraflex is between the cost of acrylic partials and chrome/cobalt partials but has the added benefits of being the most natural in terms of appearance with no metal. The only downside is the flexibility, which makes Ultraflex less suitable for situations where there are no back teeth to support missing teeth.

All dentures are now 3D printed giving the most accurate and precise fit ever.
