Dentures...Not Your Grandparents’ Experience
While it’s true that advancements in dentistry have made dentures less common, there are still some circumstances where dentures can play a role in healthy oral care. If you have missing teeth, your mouth structure is in jeopardy of eroding, severely affecting not only your ability to do simple tasks such as chewing, but affects the overall aesthetics of your face.
Get ahead of the damage. We are your team in Beamsville to help you transition to dentures – either partial or complete.
Like all dentures, the beauty of partial dentures is that they are removable by the user. They are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that clasp onto their natural neighbours. When Dr. Marta works with you to create your dentures, she will take into account your comfort, the stability of the end product, and of course aesthetics, to bring you the best dentures for your lifestyle and mouth.
Complete dentures can also be referred to as full dentures or “false teeth” and are used when all your natural teeth are missing. Complete dentures are held in place by suction and as such, are removable by the wearer.
While those are the two most common type of dentures, there are other options that you can discuss with Dr. Marta during your consultation. Call if you are thinking of getting dentures and we’ll talk about what makes the most sense for your dental situation.
