Dentures

COMPLETE DENTURES

Complete dentures are worn by patients who are missing all of their teeth in either the maxilla(upper jaw) or mandible (lower jaw). They are made from acrylic and can be designed with your choice of tooth style and colour.

PARTIAL DENTURES

A partial denture is to replace missing teeth. Each partial denture is individually designed for function and aesthetics. It is supported by the natural remaining teeth and gums.

Acrylic – made using the same acrylic used to make a complete denture with teeth attached. They have clasps that hold the denture in place.

Chrome – made with a cast metal frame with teeth attached. The clasps and frame are integrated making it stronger, slimmer and less prone to breakage.

DENTURE MAINTENANCE

Relines – adding new base material to the fitting surface of a denture so it fits properly to your gums. This can help reduce movement and improve suction as well as fill in areas that trap food particles.

Additions – you can usually get additional teeth or clasps added to the denture.

Repairs – repair cracked or fractured denture base, replace chipped, loose, broken or missing denture teeth and replace or repair clasps. Most repairs can easily be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair, it may be indicative of underlying problems, including age of the denture, worn teeth or poor fit. ***Remember never to repair dentures yourself, especially with super glue. It is poisonous and leads to further damage to the denture***

Soft liner – a soft liner is a layer of soft material that is fitted to the fitting surface of a denture .A soft liner acts as a cushion or shock absorber between the hard plastic base of a denture and the gums. Soft liners can be used with new dentures or placed in existing dentures.

Tissue conditioning – a temporary lining with a conditioning material to improve the health of gums supporting the denture.

Clean and polish – clean and polish pre-existing dentures. Using the latest ultrasonic cleaning equipment to remove excess tartar and build up. Re-polish dentures with professional equipment back to their original shine. This is recommended to be done once every year. Your dentures will be returned to you the same day
