Western Prosthodontic Centre

Are dentures my only option to replace missing teeth?

As the world and technology advances, so does dentistry. The options for replacing missing teeth are more advanced and have greater aesthetics than just a decade ago due to advancements in techniques and the materials we use in the surgery. 

Instead of limiting patient choices to dentures alone, our West Perth, WA dental clinic offers a wide range of services to meet the varying lifestyles and goals of our valued patients.

Our prosthodontist, Dr Brad Shepherd, will present each option and discuss the pros and cons of each with you.

Dentures and partial dentures – Replace multiple teeth or a complete arch of teeth with modern dentures and partial dentures made with natural-looking denture teeth designed to complement your appearance.

Dental implants – Dental implants replace the entire tooth, including the root, which means they are stable and help to preserve natural bone density.

Dental bridges – Dental crowns suspend an artificial tooth in place to eliminate the gappy appearance after tooth loss or extraction.

Implant retained dentures – For additional security, several dental implants can lock dentures in place.

To determine if dentures are the right option for you, we recommend you contact Western Prosthodontic Centre to arrange an exam. Our dentists will help you make a choice about replacing your missing teeth that fits well with your budget and lifestyle.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
