Custom-fitted mouth guards

Monday, April 30, 2018

Looking after one’s teeth is important, but Kiwi’s love of sports, and being involved in the physical contact that these activities can involve, can put our teeth and jaw in harm’s way! The solution is a custom-fitted mouth guard, and that’s where Dentures Plus comes in.

Besides all their regular services associated with the making and repairing of dentures, this practice offers custom-fitted mouth guards direct to the public. Mouth guards are an essential part of playing sports – and becoming compulsory in more sports each year. “Not only do they help protect teeth, but they may also help limit concussion and jaw injuries.”

Over Ryan’s career he has dealt with many of our top professional athletes in the custom moulding and fitting of mouth guards. Our mouth guards are made of multiple layers which absorb the impacts more effectively. “I like people to keep their teeth, especially children. That’s why we have a special offer for school age kids on our heat- moulded rubber mouth guards. These mouth guards are custom-made for each child and although children’s mouths and teeth are still developing, the mouth guard should last for a season”.

There are just two appointments needed – the first to take a mould of the upper teeth and the second to check that the mouth guard is fitting properly and is comfortable. “We have a large range of colours and patterns to choose from, whether it’s your team colours or something to show your personality”.

Dentures Plus is located at 396 Innes Road. Phone (03) 385 5517. Open Monday – Thursday 8am – 5pm, and on Friday 8am – 2pm. We also have some limited early evening appointments available. Check out their Caldent denture cleaner as well.

Clean Dentures vital for healthy gums

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

For those with dentures, keeping them clean and well maintained is vital for the health of your gum tissues, says Ryan Carlton of Dentures Plus in Innes Road.

He and his team of clinicians provide services for full and partial dentures from making and fitting them, follow- care, through to repairs and relining and a full range of dentures cleaning products.

These include dentures cleaners, brushes and dentures baths for soaking the dentures.

One product Ryan particularly recommends is Caldent denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and effectively removes stains, calculus and plaque.

“It works wonders’, he says ‘Years of stains and plaque can be removed wit this product”.

Customers don’t have to make a special trip to Dentures Plus to purchase it; they can order it online here for delivery throughout the country, Ryan says.

People may need to get full or partial dentures for various reasons, such as accidents or tooth decay, and Ryan and his two other clinicians, Nicole Yee and Thomas Gu, will ensure the whole process goes as smoothly as possible.

“We provide the right treatment plan and solution for our patients. Once we have seen them, we make up the dentures before their appointment with the dentist for the extractions”, Ryan says.

“After the teeth are extracted, the dentures are fitted immediately – this gives a better result”.

A follow-up appointment after a few months will enable the clinician to check that the dentures are fitting correctly and make any necessary adjustments.

Ryan also advises that people with existing dentures should have them checked every two to three years to make sure they are not starting to wear, which could cause discomfort the future. A free, no obligation check-up will determine if the dentures need some attention or even replacing.

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Children’s teeth are precious. But children also like to play sports and be involved in the physical contact that these activities can involve. The solution is a mouth guard and that’s where Dentures Plus comes in.

Besides all their services associated with the making and repairing of dentures, this practice offers custom-fitted mouth guards for children and for adults. “Mouth guards are an essential part of playing sports – particularly sports such as rugby, hockey and basketball,” says Ryan Carlton of Dentures Plus. “Not only do they help protect teeth, but they also help prevent concussion and jaw injuries.”

Ryan has a great deal of experience in the professional moulding and fitting of mouth guards. It’s a personal interest and makes a bit of a change from fitting dentures. “I like people to keep their teeth, especially children. That’s why we have a special offer for school age kids on our heat- moulded rubber mouth guards. These mouth guards are custom-made for each child and although children’s mouths and teeth are still developing, the mouth guard should last for a season”.

There are just two appointments needed – the first to take a mould of the upper teeth and the second to check that the mouth guard is fitting properly and is comfortable. “We make sure our mouth guards are fun as well as functional. We have them in a big range of colours to suit children’s personalities”.

Dentures Plus is located at 396 Innes Road. Phone (03) 385 5517. Open Monday – Thursday 8am – 5pm, and on Friday 8am – 2pm. Check out their Caldent denture cleaner as well.
