At Interlake Dental Centre, our Selkirk dentists offer natural-looking dentures to replace missing teeth, as well as the surrounding gum and jaw tissue.
What are Dentures?
These artificial tooth replacements enable patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial profile, speak well and eat properly. Dentures can replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or all of the teeth.
Replacing missing teeth is critical to your oral health. If you are missing some or all of your natural teeth, dentures are an affordable option for replacing them.
Types of Dentures
Do you need dentures to replace one missing tooth, a row of teeth or an entire jaw? Your dentist can help you determine the right option for you.
- Full Dentures
Full dentures are commonly referred to as false teeth or complete dentures, if you are missing an entire jaw of teeth.
They can be fitted to your upper and lower gums and are held in place with the help of an oral adhesive and/or suction.
Full dentures can be removed for sleeping and cleaning.
- Partial Dentures
Partial dentures may be for you if you are missing more than a few teeth or if your surrounding teeth are not strong enough to support a dental bridge.
Partial dentures consist of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit to your natural teeth or a tooth replacement such as a dental crown.
You can remove them for sleeping and cleaning.
- Implant-Supported Dentures
If you do not have enough gum tissue to support full dentures, your dentist may use dental implants to help stabilize the dentures for a secure fit.
Benefits of Dentures
When you lose all of your teeth, your facial muscles may sag, making you appear older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be constructed to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much.
Filling a gap caused by missing teeth is essential to your long-term oral health. By being fitted for dentures, you can also prevent your remaining teeth from shifting, which can cause more serious issues including gum disease.
