Advanced Digital Technology - D³

Technology for manufacturing products and materials is moving at a very fast pace and dentistry and dental technology is no exception. Duchenne prides itself on being the first to adopt new technologies into the way we design and create dentures, and bring them into New Zealand.

View the video to the right to discover how we are bringing new 3D printing and milling into the denture making process.

This new system, which involves an evolution from handcrafted to digital designed dentures, enables us to provide patients with more effective and customisable dentures than ever before. But, just as importantly, this significantly improved process is also very cost effective.

 


Full and Partial Conventional Dentures

Duchenne prides itself on using the most up to date and highest quality materials for the construction of its dentures. We believe in giving our patients a tailor made denture that provides you with the comfort and durability of a product that is also cost effective.  These hand crafted dentures can be for either upper or lower teeth and can be designed to replace as many teeth as your circumstances require. There are differing partial dentures to suit different situations. A partial denture is usually very retentive and a very successful appliance to wear when missing one or several teeth.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a screwlike anchor that is used as an artificial replacement for natural tooth roots.  A dental implant is made of materials that are compatible with the human body, such as titanium, implants have been used for decades in upper and lower jaws.  By attaching to the jawbone and gum tissue, they provide a stable base for artificial replacement teeth, such as dental crowns, bridges and dentures.  Conventional dentures don’t suit everyone, and not everyone can keep them in comfortably.  If this sounds like you, Dental Implant dentures may just be the solution you’re looking for. This process is more involved than conventional dentures, but it can be life changing for those who do go down this path.

 


Mouthguards

Not only are we in the business of replacing missing teeth, but we are also strongly committed to retaining teeth with protective mouthguards. Dental injuries are the most common type of facial injury in contact sport but investing in a fitted mouthguard will help to protect your teeth from loss and damage.  Because our mouthguards are custom made and constructed to the highest standards from the best quality shock absorbing materials they are the best fit and extremely comfortable.  

Denture Relines 

It is important to have good fitting dentures so as to not traumatise the teeth and tissue that they sit against and potentially cause pain in the mouth. Your denture may require a reline due to the denture no longer fitting for some reason. These reasons can vary, for example recent tooth loss or broken dentures, weight loss etc..  Denture relining is reshaping the underneath part of your denture to make it rest more comfortably against your gums. It is an affordable procedure and not a complicated process. 

Denture  Repairs

When a denture breaks it can be due to an accident or simply that a denture is at the end of its lifetime.  We understand the stress and hardship of missing dentures so through our local state of the art laboratory we endeavour to complete all denture repairs within a day of your visit.

"Duchenne Technicians and staff are AMAZING people!!
I had lost so much confidence because of missing teeth, I would try and hide them as much as I could, I'd talk with my hand close to my mouth, and wouldn't smile for people or even family photos. My new dentures fit perfectly and the process was fast and efficient. Thank you so much Tristan for giving me my smile back, you've been an amazing."
