Full & Partial Dentures Services

We apply full and partial dentures to our patients, and provide denture adjustments, repairs and realignment services that build confidence. Our in-house doctor is a certified denturist who will create one-of-a-kind dentures that feel good, look natural and are custom designed to fit your mouth reliably and comfortably.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures Dentistry exampleDentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial.

  • Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been or will be removed. Conventional full dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate full dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed and may require frequent adjustments during the first couple of months of use
  • Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are considered a removable alternative to bridges

Dentistry is all about smiles, and having a confident, healthy, and beautiful smile is important even for patients wearing dentures. Our practice provides personalized denture services that meet the needs and comfort levels of every one of our patients.

What To Expect After Your Dentures

After you’ve left our clinic with your new dentures, you’re going to start experiencing things you’re not used to. In this video, Dr. Pio Modi explains what to expect after you get your dentures.

Caring for Your Dentures

Dentures, just like natural teeth, require daily maintenance to stay clean and keep bacteria from growing inside of your mouth. Your objective is to ensure to keep your dentures clean and your smile will always stay healthy. 

The following are ways you can ensure your dentures are always clean and in proper working order:

  • When handling your dentures, stand over a clean, folded towel or a sink full of water. This way, if you accidentally drop your dentures, they are less likely to break
  • Your dentures are not immune from plaque and tartar build-up, so it’s important that you brush your dentures every day. To brush your dentures, use a soft-bristled brush and gently brush the surfaces of the dentures, being careful not to break or bend the plastic. Between brushings, it’s important to rinse your dentures after each meal
  • Use a gentle cleanser to clean your dentures. Many toothpastes, household cleaners, and mouthwashes can be too hard on your dentures, so it is recommended that you use a mild hand or dish soap to get your dentures clean. Be sure to check for the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) seal of approval to choose products that are safe for your dentures, or ask your dentist about which products may be best for you
  • When you are not wearing your dentures, they need to be kept moist. Dentures that are not kept in a denture cleaning solution or in water can dry out, lose their shape, or even crack and break. Certain styles of dentures require certain soaking solutions, so be sure to ask your dentist which solution is best for you
  • Even if you have a full set of dentures, it’s important to keep your gums and tongue clean. Be sure to use a soft-bristled brush to gently clean your gums and tongue every day

If by chance your dentures do break, please contact our practice and schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Broken dentures that don’t fit properly can cause irritation to your gums and mouth.

Also, remember to continue scheduling regular dental checkups every six months to make sure that your dentures are performing as they should and that your smile stays healthy for many years to come.
