Our registered denturist at Santé dentaire Richard Bélanger offers natural-looking dentures to help replace missing teeth as well as support the surrounding gum and jaw tissues.
Dentures are artificial replacements for teeth which allow our patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial profile, speak properly and eat well. Dentures can also be used to replace a missing tooth, several different missing teeth or a full smile.
Replacing missing teeth is essential to your oral health. If you are missing all or some of your natural teeth, dentures are an affordable option for replacing them.
Whether you require dentures to replace a row of teeth, a whole jaw, or just a single tooth, your dentist will be able to help you decide on the right option for you.
Your dentist will use full dentures, commonly referred to as false teeth or complete dentures, if you are missing a whole jaw of teeth.
You can have full dentures fitted for both your lower and upper gums which can be held in place by suction or the help of an oral adhesive.
Full dentures can be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
Your dentist can use partial dentures if you are missing more than a couple teeth or if your surrounding teeth aren't strong enough to support a dental bridge.
Partial dentures are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto your natural teeth or a tooth replacement like a dental crown.
They can be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
If there is not enough gum tissue to support full dentures, dental implants may be used to help stabilize the dentures for a secure fit.
When you lose your teeth, your facial muscles may sag, making you look older than you are. Dentures can also help to fill out the appearance of your face and your profile. Dentures can be made to look very similar to your natural teeth so your appearance undergoes minimal changes.
Filling in a gap caused by missing teeth is also crucial to your long-term oral health. By fitting you for dentures, your dentist will also help protect your remaining teeth from shifting, which can lead to more serious issues like gum disease.
