Mobile Denture Clinic
The need for a mobile denture service appeared on our radar after requests from long-standing patients with mobility and transport issues, who were concerned for the continuity of their denture care.
In some cases, this situation arose because of a transition to aged-care facilities. In other instances, it was because mobility became an issue. Whatever the reason, the ideal solution was for us to bring our mobile denture clinic to our patients.
How It Works
Whether you live in a residential aged-care facility, or in your own home but find traveling a chore, we will come to you.
During your first, FREE CONSULTATION, our prosthetist, Dr. Paul, will evaluate your needs. You will be given a care plan detailing the number of appointments needed, the services required and the cost of the work.
Depending on your requirements, we will schedule follow-up appointments. All equipment needed will be provided by your prosthetist who will then take the work to be done back to our laboratory for completion. We also provide an on-the-spot electronic payment service for credit cards.

How Long Does It Take To Make A Denture?
A new full/complete or partial denture will require approximately four visits over a three week period.
At your first, no obligation, free consultation, Dr Paul will assess your mouth and particular requirements and discuss your expectations of your new dentures. In the case of a full denture, if tooth extraction is required, he will liaise with your dentist on whether your denture is best fitted on the same day as the tooth extraction (an immediate denture), or whether the mouth and gums will be left to heal before your denture is fitted.
The next appointment will involve taking impressions of your mouth anatomy using custom-made trays of malleable material. Your bite registration will be determined using a wax block.
The following appointment will involve a ‘try-in’. A customised wax model of your gums with teeth is ‘tried in’ your mouth for fit and appearance.
Your finished dentures are fitted in the final appointment. If required, adjustments are made, and a special care pack given with instructions and products on how to maintain your new dentures.
Sometimes sore spots may develop as your mouth adjusts to the new dentures. Two follow up visits to adjust your new dentures are included in your initial quote.
Eventually, as your mouth changes, a denture reline might be required. In this case, the inside of your denture is resurfaced to restore a snug fit and prolong the life of the denture. This service can also be facilitated through our mobile denture clinic. It couldn’t be easier! Just call us or use our online booking form to arrange an appointment to suit. Dr Paul will visit to determine your requirements. Your false teeth will be relined in our laboratory and returned to you without the need to step outside your door.
