Prosthetics

Our Prosthetics Department is headed by Our Lab Manager Maz supported by her fellow GDC registered technicians Rob and Mark, along with trainee technician Andy who will hopefully gain his Foundation Degree in Dental Technology in 2014.

As a team we offer Private/Independent and NHS work in the following forms:

  • Full and Partial removable acrylic dentures
  • Flexi-dentures (Valplast and Duraflex)
  • Cobalt Chrome Partials and full Palettes
  • Bite Raising Splints
  • Mouthguards and Nightguards
  • Bleaching Trays
  • Overnight Repairs and Additions
  • Relines: Hard and Soft
  • Implant Work
  • Orthodontic Appliances

For each stage of work 5 lab days are required, however CoCr try-ins  and flexi-deture fits need 10 lab days.

Private and Independent dentures are set up on semi-adjustable articulators with Natura acrylic teeth set into contoured wax and processed in High-Impact acrylic.

NHS dentures are set up with Delphic acrylic teeth, however Natura teeth and High Impact acrylic can be used at extra cost.

If there is anything that you wish to discuss with a technician ring Aurora on 01743 235006 and ask for Maz, Mark or Rob.
