DENTURE SERVICES  

 

COMPLETE DENTURES 

  A complete denture or a full denture is a removable dental appliance for patients missing all their teeth and replacing them to eat, talk, and smile confidently. 

 

We offer:

🦷 Standard Complete Dentures

🦷 Precision Complete Dentures

🦷 Suction Effective Complete Lower Dentures

 

  We are also equipped and trained in digitally designed dentures along with the conventional methods of denture making, giving you as many options as possible for the most successful outcome.

 

✓ A thorough exam is done at your consultation appointment to determine what type of denture is best suited for you. 

 

Standard Dentures:

✓ Our standard dentures come with acrylic/plastic teeth and a standard fit. This type of denture is a cost-effective option.

✓ Standard dentures may fit comfortably and be able to chew.

✓ Some patients who have flat gums, unusual bites, and/or over closed may require precision techniques and materials to have a successful outcome. 

 

Precision Dentures:

✓ Our precision dentures come with stronger teeth and a better fit. 

✓ The denture teeth we use in precision dentures are made up of composite, making them long-lasting and wearing less quickly.

✓ We take extra steps/techniques and use additional materials to get a precise and detailed impression with the inclusion of digital dentistry.

✓ Precision dentures are in conjunction with implants, and suction-effective lower dentures.

 

 

PARTIAL DENTURES

  A removable partial is made to replace one or more missing teeth and is customized to a person's specific requirements. 

  The number of remaining teeth, the position, and the stability of the remaining teeth are a few of the factors that help determine what type and/or design of partial denture is required. 

 

 Partials can be made of different materials. The most common include; acrylic, metal-acrylic combination, or flexible thermoplastic.

 

🦷 Acrylic Partial 

  An acrylic partial is usually made for a temporary approach but can be made for long-term use as well depending on a person's circumstances.

    Flipper is an acrylic partial replacing one tooth.

 

🦷 Metal-acrylic or Cast Partial

  A metal-acrylic or cast partial is a more rigid and stable type of partial. It is made with highly compatible chrome cobalt alloys or titanium and the teeth are made with acrylic or composite teeth. These cast partials offer a thin, light and very strong prosthetic and allow for several different designs to best suit your requirements.

 

🦷 Flexible Partial

  A flexible thermoplastic partial can be used as an alternative to cast or acrylic partials. Although they provide difficult to repair, they are great options for someone allergic to metal or acrylics.

 

🦷 Partial-on-Implants

  A partial denture can also be made to fit onto attachments or implants giving you an excellent fitting partial minimizing the number of clasps necessary around your natural teeth. 

 

✓ An intraoral exam is required before getting started with relines. Partial dentures should always be properly fitted. A partial denture can prevent your natural teeth from shifting or drifting into the space left by missing teeth. In fact, a partial denture can help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support.

 

IMMEDIATE DENTURES

  An immediate denture is a denture that is fabricated by taking impressions/intra-oral scan before your natural teeth are extracted and is inserted immediately after the extractions. 

 

Benefits:

🦷 To avoid the situation of being without your teeth while your gums are healing

🦷 Helps protect the extraction sites

🦷 Helps to maintain proper bite placement

🦷 Acts like a band-aid to protect the gums when eating

 

Expectations:

  It is important to follow the postoperative instructions very carefully to aid in a proper healing process. As healing occurs, the oral tissues will shrink, and you may require a few adjustments from one of our denturists. During the next few months, the bone and the gum tissue will shrink at a fast rate. Adjustments during the healing process are normal and to be expected. As your gums heal they change and the denture can get loose and will need to be refitted periodically. After the healing process is complete your dentures will be relined, or we will start the fabrication of your new dentures.

 

 DENTAL IMPLANTS

  Dental implants are the closest possible replacement for your natural teeth. They have a long clinical history and excellent success rate.

  The implants are a substitute root tip that maintains the integrity of the bone and forms a stable foundation for full or partial dentures. Implants help to preserve the bone by stimulating it as the tooth once provided.

  Implant retained, or implant-supported full dentures are made to fasten onto implants in various ways. Implant-retained or supported dentures can greatly improve self-confidence and quality of life by providing better stability, security, better chewing ability, and providing an overall more natural feeling.


 

OTHER DENTURE SERVICES

 

  A repair may be required when a tooth breaks or crack happens due to dropping your denture or wear & tear.

Most repairs can be done the same day and in some cases while you wait.

   ✓ One of our denturists will be needing to see you when you pick up the denture for quality control and expectations.


✓ An intraoral exam is required before getting started with relines. An examination of your gums and dentures might be required before any of these procedures to make sure it is the best option for you.

 

RELINES

  Relines consist of adding new pink material to the tissue side of a denture to ensure a tighter fit.

✓ Relines may be required when there is a change in your gums due to:

  🦷 weight loss/gain

  🦷 loss of teeth

  🦷 loss of bone

  🦷 improper denture maintenance and denture hygiene

 

 ✓ An intraoral exam is required before getting started with relines.

 

SOFT LINER

  Acts as a cushion or shock absorber between the hard-plastic base and the gums. Great for people with chronic soreness, thin gum tissue or resorbed ridges. A soft liner can be placed in an existing denture or the fabrication of a new denture. Recommended replacement for the soft liner is approximately 3 to 5 years, depending on oral flora, medication and denture hygiene. 

✓ An intraoral exam is required before getting started with relines.

 

TEETH WHITENING

  A simple safe effective process to lighten your natural teeth. We provide you with a custom-fitted tray that you can use at home along with a peroxide-based gel. Tooth whitening can be used during the day or while you sleep. Tooth whitening can be done before a denture or partial denture fabrication to achieve a whiter smile.
