The dentists at our Toronto, Oakville, Kingston and Woodbridge locations offer dentures to replace missing teeth.
A Natural-Looking Alternative
At dentalhouse, our dentists use full, partial or implant-supported dentures to deliver excellent aesthetic and functional results for patients who need natural-looking tooth replacements.
Dentures are artificial tooth replacements that enable patients with missing teeth to keep their facial profile, speak well and eat properly. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth, several missing teeth or all teeth.
Are you missing some or all of your natural teeth? Replacing missing teeth is an essential item on the to-do list when discussing oral health.
Types of Dentures
Whether you require dentures to replace one missing tooth, a row of teeth or an entire jaw, your dentist can help you decide which is the right option for you.
- Full Dentures
Full dentures are usually referred to as false teeth or complete dentures, if you are missing an entire jaw of teeth.
These can be fitted to your upper or lower gums, and are held in place by suction and/or with the assistance of an oral adhesive. Full dentures can be removed for sleeping and cleaning.
- Partial Dentures
Partial dentures may be a good option if you are missing more than a few teeth, or if your surrounding teeth are not strong enough to support a dental bridge.
One or more artificial teeth make up a partial denture, which is held in place by clasps fitted to your natural teeth or a tooth replacement such as a dental crown. They may be removed for sleeping and cleaning.
- Implant-Supported Dentures
Benefits of Dentures
Losing all of your teeth can have serious implications for your oral health and appearance. Facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help by filling out the appearance of your facial profile. They can also be created to closely resemble your natural teeth, so your appearance will not change much.
Filling a gap left by missing teeth is also critical to your long-term oral health. Your dentist can fit you for dentures to help prevent your remaining teeth from moving.
