Dentures in Edmonton

Dentures Can Help Restore Comfort & Function

Dentures are artificial teeth (sometimes called false teeth) designed to replace your natural teeth. While dentures are important to maintain natural chewing habits and speech patterns, they also help keep facial muscles functioning properly, preventing drooping.

All services are provided by a general dentist.

Types of Dentures

Patients will be outfitted with a specific type of denture depending on their specific need.

Full Dentures

When you hear the word “dentures,” you most likely think of full dentures. Full dentures are a complete set of teeth, mounted in pink plastic, designed to look like gums. In most cases, full dentures are held in place with suction, which can take some getting used to.

Typically, full dentures are used for patients who no longer have any teeth. In some cases, a patient may have a few teeth left. In cases like these, your dentist may recommend overdentures, which will fit over the remaining natural teeth. If a patient has difficulty keeping their full dentures in with suction alone, a dentist may install an implant under the gums, then give them overdentures that fit over the implant. Overdentures are still removeable, even with the implant.

Partial dentures are also called a removable partial denture prosthesis or partials. Partials are sometimes used when a patient is missing a few teeth in a row, but the remaining teeth aren’t strong enough to support a bridge, or too many are missing in a row. Typically partial dentures are held in place by clasps, which are attached to adjacent teeth. Sometimes partial dentures look similar to a retainer with teeth attached.

Caring For Your Dentures

Just like natural teeth, dentures require quite a bit of maintenance and care. You should brush your dentures every day to prevent a buildup of plaque and tartar. Despite the fact that dentures are not physically attached to your natural gums, untended plaque can cause the gums to become infected and diseased.

Anytime your dentures are not in your mouth they should be soaking in warm (not hot) water. If your dentures contain any mental, you should avoid using any solution other than water to prevent tarnishing. If your dentures are entirely plastic, you may wish to mix water with denture cleanser.
