At Dentures at Varsity, we fully understand the impact that the loss of one’s natural teeth has on their quality of life. Aside from the disruption to fundamental human functions such as the ability to eat, talk, smile and laugh, the loss of one’s teeth can be damaging to their self-confidence. Our line of full dentures at our Gold Coast clinic restore your self-esteem, help to restore sagging muscle tissue that occurs in the absence of natural teeth and leaves you feeling confident in your appearance once more.
Teeth play a vital role in supporting the facial muscles surrounding the mouth, cheeks and lips. In the absence of teeth, this facial tissue tends to sag and droop. The loss of natural teeth causes the jawbone to diminish, leading the bottom half of the face to wilt and wither. Along with the shrivelling of the gums and poorly made dentures that do not provide adequate reinforcement for the lips and cheeks, the facial tissue loses its structure and volume. This loss of facial form results in the patient appearing older.
The Benefits of Full Dentures
Our highly skilled dental technicians develop denture solutions that fit each patient with absolute precision. This results in facial muscles that appear tighter once more, while any sunken features appear fuller, helping to recreate a more natural, healthier and youthful appearance.
The benefits of our full dentures include:
- Beautifully sculpted prosthetic teeth that possess the shape, gloss and shine of natural teeth
- Facial tissue affected by the loss of teeth, such as in and around the mouth, cheeks and lips will be revitalised; the muscles will appear tighter, while any sunken areas will appear fuller
- Precise duplication of gum profile and colour
- Long lasting dentures that are composed of cutting-edge materials, offer a perfect fit and provide superior comfort for the wearer
- Full dentures have been around for decades. They are an ideal solution for patients who wish to have a full set of teeth again
- They have a considerable lifespan, making them a cost effective investment
- Our dentures are made from the highest quality materials and with meticulous precision by our highly skilled in-house dental prosthetist, Adrian Simic

The top denture stays in place with muco-compressive suction and the bottom denture can be much the same if the mandible allows. Generally, though, the bottom denture works off stability and grip more than suction, as the tongue is connected to the floor of the mouth.
