Dentures & Partials

Removable Or Fixed
Dentures

Teeth can be lost because of disease, injury, and other circumstances. 

Dentures are removable or fixed oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore the function, beauty and health of your smile.

There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in one or both arches depending on your individual needs.

A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have natural teeth remaining. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

If you have removable dentures, we recommend removing them at night to allow your gums to rest from the pressure exerted on them throughout the day. Make sure to clean your dentures before storing them overnight.
Adjusting to your dentures will take some time but once you’ve worn them in and are comfortable with your dentures, you should be able to resume your regular eating habits and enjoy all of your favourite foods.
It depends on the type of dentures, type of materials used, and your denture care practices. Typically, dentures can last 5-10 years but may need to be relined or rebased within that timeframe. A regular denture cleaning routine can significantly increase the lifespan of your dentures.
Just like you would brush your natural teeth, dentures need to be properly cleaned as well. When cleaning your dentures, make sure to avoid coarse bristle brushes and abrasive tooth pastes. Check with your denturist for the best denture cleaning products. When you take out your dentures overnight, make sure to brush them and clean them before storing them in water overnight – brush your gums and remaining natural teeth as well!
With modern advancements in denture fabrication, dentures are designed to perform, feel, and look just like your natural teeth. Dentures provide a discrete solution for missing teeth that can bring back your confidence with a natural looking smile.
