What are dentures, and do you need them?

  HealthInfo recommends the following pages

If paying for dentures is a problem for you, talk to your dentist about being referred to the public hospital to have your teeth extracted. There is no public funding for dentures to be made, but if you are on a low income or are a beneficiary, you may be able to get some financial help from WINZ. Sometimes dentures can be made and adjusted by a dental technician directly, rather than going through a dentist.
