Dentures MississaugaThe loss of multiple teeth can be devastating, to your self image and oral health. Dentures provide an excellent solution, which can be customized to your needs. At R Dentists in Mississauga, we offer several options to meet the unique needs of each patient.
About denturesA denture is a removable appliance that replaces several or all your natural teeth. When well designed, it fits snugly, forming suction against the gums that holds it in place. Dentures can also be supported with implants.
There are three main classifications of dentures
- Complete – This is the traditional style of denture. It is designed to replace all teeth in an arch, with a single removable appliance. If extractions are needed, the gum tissue is normally given time to heal and stabilize before dentures are designed.
- Immediate – Patients who don’t want to wait for their new smiles have the option of immediate dentures. They are designed in advance, and fitted to the mouth immediately after extractions. Adjustments are made to optimize the fit after gums have healed.
- Partial – This is a great solution for patients who are missing several, but not all, of their teeth. A partial denture attaches to existing teeth with discreet clasps. We offer aesthetic partials, which have clear clasps.
Design considerationsWhen creating a denture, we strive for optimal aesthetics and function. This includes assessing the ideal color, shape, size, and spacing. Partial dentures are designed to match your remaining teeth. If all your teeth are being replaced with a new smile, you can choose a lighter color or other improvements over your natural teeth. We also analyze your bite at its most stable position, to ensure a comfortable fit and good chewing efficiency.
