Jump to: navigation, search

Dental prosthetists work as independent practitioners (i.e. without supervision) in the assessment, treatment, management and provision of:

• removable dentures

• flexible or removable mouthguards used for sporting activities.

Dental prosthetists who are educated and trained in a program of study approved by the Dental Board of Australia, may provide:

• various types of splints

• sleep apnoea devices

• anti-snoring devices

• immediate dentures

• immediate additions to existing dentures

These procedures require written referrals to and from dentists and any appliance or device manufactured under such arrangement must be planned, issued and managed by the treating dentist or dental specialist.
