Patients frequently tell me…
Only my dentist can make a partial denture and only my dentist can make a partial to be fitted immediately after teeth extraction. This statement is untrue…
Over the years our clinic has received numerous enquiries from patients who are under the impression their partial denture must be made through a dentist! This is most common among first-time denture wearers.
Most noticeably, the patient’s oral health has been treated by their general dentist for a period of time. In some instances, the time comes where sadly there is no option but to have the teeth extracted with a partial denture to be made in tandem.
In New Zealand there is a class of professionals known as Clinical Dental Technicians (CDT’s). Here at Wellington Dentures, we are CDT’s. This effectively means we are experts at making removable dentures.
