Call For A Free Consultation

A complete denture replaces all of your upper or lower teeth at one time. It rests directly against the gums, conforming to the shape of your mouth and creating a suction underneath the plate.

Depending on the complexity of your case, denture design and delivery usually requires anywhere from 3-5 appointments. During your initial exam, we can review the step-by-step process for your unique case. Individuals who need to have extractions typically require more time or planning than those who are replacing an existing denture.

Do you still have several healthy teeth? Instead of unnecessary extractions, we can fit you with a partial denture that snaps into place around your existing smile. Each of the teeth are designed to blend in with their neighbours, for the most natural-looking results.

For added stability and security, you can elect to have your removable dentures attached to a set of dental implants. Overdentures provide improved retention and stability throughout the day, so that you can have the confidence you need to talk and eat or do any other normal activity.

An overdenture is still removable. However, it eliminates the need for adhesives or denture pastes. The additional stability that implants offer are ideal for our patients who struggle with getting a secure fit. You may qualify for implant retained dentures even if you’re not a traditional dental implant candidate.

Daily Maintenance

Each of our patients receive a denture starter kit and instruction manual on how to care for their appliance. It’s essential to remove your prosthesis nightly and soak it in an appropriate denture cleanser. If you notice any sore spots, contact us straightaway; occasional adjustments are completely normal.

Denture Relines

It’s natural for your the shape of your mouth to slightly change over time. Combined with the gradual wear of your denture, this situation may lead to issues like a loose prosthesis or uncomfortable rubbing. Relining your denture can improve its comfort and fit. In some cases, we can reline your appliance on the same day or within 24 hours.

Adjusting to Your New Appliance

If you’re a first-time denture wearer, give yourself several days to adjust to your new prosthesis. For the first few days, cut your food up into smaller pieces and opt for softer textures. Practice speaking in front of a mirror several times a day. The more grace, patience and practice you give yourself, the easier the adjustment process will be.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I care for dentures?

Caring for your dentures is a key part of making sure they remain in good condition and last as long as possible. Here are some tips to help you care for your dentures:

  • Clean them daily with warm water, mild soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Make sure to rinse them thoroughly afterwards to remove any soap residue. You should also clean your mouth after removing your dentures.
  • Avoid using abrasive cleansers or toothpaste, as these can damage the dentures. Getting a toothbrush made for dentures is ideal.
  • Soak them in a special solution overnight, and brush them before putting them back in your mouth. This will help to keep bacteria from building up on the surface of the denture. Never leave your dentures out to dry.

What do dentures feel like in your mouth?

At first, dentures may feel a bit strange in your mouth. We use advanced technology to achieve a comfortable fit, so they might be too large for your mouth, feel loose or rub against the gums. With time, though, you’ll adjust to wearing them and they will start to feel more comfortable. It’s important to have regular adjustments with us if necessary so that your dentures fit securely. Once you’re used to them, it’s only a matter of time before you start to feel more confident in your smile.

Who is a candidate for dentures?

Dentures are a suitable option for people with missing teeth who want to improve their appearance and chewing ability. In order to be a candidate for dentures, you must have healthy gums and sufficient bone structure to support the denture. People with gum disease or decayed teeth may need to undergo treatment before getting dentures. Patients who aren’t able to have a dental bridge or implants may be ideal candidates.
