Dentures We Fabricate Follow These Steps:
Not all dentures are created equal – there is a difference!
Standard Complete Dentures
Standard dentures are an economical denture choice for patients. The quality and wear strength of the denture teeth is mid-grade (3 layered cross linked acrylic.) They are processed using conventional packing system and offer a 1-year guarantee for breakage.
Precision Complete Dentures
Precision dentures are more advanced. They use superior quality materials precise impression techniques, accurate jaw relationship measurements and nano-hybrid composite denture teeth. Nano-hybrid composite is well-known for their outstanding minimal wear performance and unique naturalistic details designed in every tooth. They remain sharp and last for years, processed using our state- of- the-art Ivobase injection system. Fully balanced, they are more stable. Patients often comment on how easy chewing has become and how few denture sore spots they incur. These dentures come with a 2-year breakage guarantee.
Surgical Immediate Dentures
We can select denture teeth similar to the size, shape and colour of your natural teeth if you choose or we can change your smile giving you that perfect smile you have always wanted. You will bring this denture with you to your extraction appointment. They will be inserted immediately after extraction is complete. Your dentures may feel very tight at first due to swelling and possible sutures beneath. We will schedule an appointment at our office to place a tissue conditioner inside denture to refit the tissue bearing side of the denture to make it more comfortable to chew. These liners need to be replaced every 5-8 weeks or as required throughout the first year. Permanent relines are placed after 12 months of bone change.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures are the Mercedes Benz of dentures. Titanium dental implants are placed into the bone by a qualified dentist or surgeon. A removable or fixed precision denture is fabricated with special attachments that are either fixed (therefore, not removable to the patient) or a removable type is made to simply snap on and off of the implant abutments or bar. Fixed and implant supported dentures are the most comfortable, secure, natural feeling dentures on the market. They provide freedom as well as confidence. They help to minimize the fear of those embarrassing denture moments such as when your denture drops while laughing or lifts while speaking. Little or no food collects under the dentures. Once again you will be able to eat steak, raw vegetables, fresh fruit and berries without pain or discomfort. No longer will you need to apply denture adhesives. Finally, the bone mass around the implants begins to regenerate around the implants similar to when your natural teeth were present.
Partial dentures are necessary for replacing missing teeth. They are designed to help prevent natural teeth from drifting or tilting. This bracing action allows food to be chewed evenly, placing less stress on your remaining teeth; a lower partial denture also helps to stabilize an upper denture. They prevent the upper denture from dropping while biting into apples, sandwiches and corn on the cob. They are available in cast metal to ensure strength and cleanliness as well as thermoplastic/flexible plastic acrylic if you prefer not see metal in your mouth.
Soft Permanent Linings
For patients who have decreased bone quantity, this material is soft and remains soft during wear. It can last for several years and can be replaced when relining is required. For patients with sharp bony prominences or little to no bone, soft linings help cushion the denture base so that it is comfortable and easy to wear.
Dentures require relining every 2 to 3 years to keep them functioning at their best. Dentures begin to show movement when the underlying bone shrinks or changes. Weight loss can impact denture fit causing them to become loose. Also, medications and certain health conditions can affect denture fit causing them to feel more loose or snug during certain times of the day. A simple impression is taken from the inside of your dentures. We offer this as a same-day appointment – ensuring you will have a fully relined denture the same day. Now only regular maintenance will be required. Annual check-ups and routine relines every 2-3 years are suggested to ensure your oral health and denture success.
Typically completed within an hour, depending on the complexity of the repair. Occasionally a new impression is required, it is suggested that you arrive with your denture.
We have a polishing system that is designed to remove stains and deposits and bring life back to your dentures. We offer this polishing service annually to all of our patients as our way of saying thank you for choosing us.
For sports enthusiasts of all ages, we offer professional ProForm Mouthguards. Available in several colours, they can be made to fit over orthodontic braces and dentures.
Professional Tooth Whitening
If you have been dreaming of a whiter, healthier looking smile we offer tooth whitening kits for natural teeth. They come complete with a storage container for your custom made trays. We offer the whitening gel at our cost, again our way of saying thank you for choosing us.
If you clench or grind your teeth at night, we offer custom fit night guards to relieve facial muscle soreness and headaches related to clenching or night grinding.
Pigmentation is applied to the denture base to customize your denture so that the gingival (gum) colour matches your skin tone, enhancing your natural-looking smile.
