Tooth loss is something we all hope to never experience as adults. However, it is an unfortunately common problem. Thankfully, modern dentistry has beautiful solutions. Burloak Centre Dentistry offers a full range of family dental services, including dentures. These are custom designed by our in-house denturist, for a natural appearance and optimal functionality.
There are multiple styles of dentures available:
- Partials – A partial denture replaces multiple teeth, but not the full arch. It is removable for eating and oral hygiene. When in place, a partial is secured by other teeth. Some styles are semi-flexible, allowing them to "snap" in place. Others are fitted with clasps, which connect to supporting teeth.
- Full denture – If you have complete tooth loss in either arch, a removable full denture can restore your smile quickly. Our denturist designs a complete set of natural looking false teeth, which are set in base that looks like gums. It fits snugly and comfortably against your gums and the roof of your mouth.
- Implant supported dentures – A denture, or virtually any other type of restoration, can be supported by implants. This option provides the strength and stability comparable to natural teeth. Implants also help prevent bone resorption in the jaw.
Consultation and treatment planning
The first step in the process is an examination and consultation. We want to learn about your concerns and goals, so we can develop a customized treatment plan that meets your needs, schedule and budget. Our team will discuss and explain the various options available to you. You are encouraged to ask any questions you may have; our focus is patient education and helping you make informed decisions.
