If you're interested in filling the gaps in your smile with dentures, our dentists at St. Clair Beach Dental Centre can help you get started.
Dentures are artificial replacements of your natural teeth and gums. Dentures are considered removable prosthesis. A denture improves chewing ability and speech, and provides support for facial muscles. It will greatly enhance the facial appearance and smile.
While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one's natural teeth, today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever. There are three types: partial, complete and implant-supported.
Partial dentures are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto nearby natural teeth. You can take the partial denture out yourself for cleaning at night.
A partial denture is suitable for those who have some natural teeth remaining.
Complete dentures are most often referred to as “false teeth”. They are used when all natural teeth are missing. Complete dentures are also removable as they are held in place by suction.
Candidates for complete dentures have lost most or all of their teeth.
Loose dentures cause many problems for wearers: discomfort, pain, sore spots on the gums, speech problems, an inability to chew food properly, and even changes in facial shape.
Implant-supported dentures can solve all of these problems.
Implant-supported dentures fit tightly, allowing patients to smile with greater confidence and enjoy all the foods they love.
Not only that, they can say goodbye to denture glue.
