Approximately 4 million Canadians wear dentures! Ordinary dentures leave little room for customization. Men and women, old and young, get the same look. The result is a perfect row of identical teeth, which causes many dentures to look false.
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth. A denture consists of a plate or frame holding one or more artificial teeth in place. Dentures can take some getting used to, and while they may never feel the same as your original teeth, they can look natural and are now more comfortable than ever. At South Family Dental Care, we will advise you of all treatment options available based on your unique case.
Full Dentures are the most common denture appliances made. After the affected teeth are removed, a full denture can be crafted to fit either the upper arch, lower arch or both. The upper denture has a pink denture base that extends across the roof of the mouth to create suction and help keep the denture in place. The lower denture is u-shaped and is designed to fit snugly along the bottom ridge of the jaw.
The term “false teeth” concerns a lot of people. However, our dentists and denturist (who constructs the denture appliance) take every step to ensure that your dentures look as natural as possible. Innovations in replacement tooth design have come a long way in making the false teeth look incredibly natural. Also, since the loss of teeth may have resulted in the loss of support for your lips, cheeks, and facial muscles, your new full denture will help fill out the shape of your face and instantly improve your smile!
When it comes time to fit your full denture, it will all depend on the type of dentures you have chosen and your specific needs. The following is a basic outline of the denture creation process and generally, you can expect that the creation and fitting of your dentures to take place over several office visits.
Yes, there are alternative to dentures! Dental Implants can now be used to support permanently cemented bridges, thereby eliminating the need for a denture. In the case of a poor fitting full denture, dental implants can also be used to create better support for the denture.
Please be aware that the cost of implant supported bridges and implant supported dentures is greater than that for standard dentures, but there is an added benefit in that the implant supported solutions feel more natural, are stronger and more stable and will help maintain your jaw bone over time.
Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for an implant supported bridge or implant supported the denture. If you would like to explore the potential for implants supported denture solutions, we would be happy to discuss this with you during your denture consultation.
