- Over Denture
- Immediate Denture
- Implant Supported Dentures
There are two types of complete dentures that we offer here at Fort York Dentist: The conventional one and the immediate one. There are many dentistry services in Toronto but we provide the safest and most economical solution.
The conventional denture can be ready to be placed in the mouth immediately after the teeth extraction. This is done so that the patient is not without teeth during the healing period. Fork York Dentist has catered to many such clients and provides complete and partial denture services in Toronto.
We also offer the partial denture service. A detachable partial denture also called the bridge normally contains the replacement teeth which are attached to pink colored or gum-like plastic base. This is mostly connected with metal framework that helps it to attach and stick to the teeth. We use partial dentures when there is more than one tooth that is attached in the upper and lower jaw. The fixed bridge replaces the crown and attaches it to the natural teeth that are already present. The partial denture is a removable solution to replace missing teeth.
Get the Facts on Dentures
If you have had a lot of trouble with your teeth, such as toothaches, tooth decay, and loss of teeth, you may be thinking of getting some sort of tooth replacement. Maybe dentures or partials are something you may be interested in. Here at Fort York in Toronto, we have expert technicians that can answer all of your questions. Here are some common questions people have asked about dentures and partial dentures:
Q – What are dentures?
A – Dentures are basically just replacement teeth that are removable. There are many different types of dentures, including but not limited to:
- Conventional dentures are fake teeth made of either porcelain or acrylic resin attached to fake gums that are molded to your gums. These are made by your dentist after she removes your teeth by using a mold of wax that is made over several weeks after the gums heal. It can take up to three months to get a good fit for your dentures. Once they are made, they are held in place by denture adhesive.
- Immediate dentures are perfect for those who do not want to be without teeth for any amount of time. These are made in the same day that you get your other teeth removed. The main difference between these and the regular dentures is that you have to be without teeth for several weeks while your gums heal to get the best fit. Immediate dentures are made before your gums heal so you will have to come back several times to get them refitted. We are able to assist you in choosing which you would like to do.
- Overdentures are just made to fit over several teeth that are still good enough to remain in your mouth. These only work well if you have several teeth that are in good enough condition to keep and not worry about them getting infected. You will have to continue to see the dentist and to care for those remaining teeth to keep them healthy.
Q – What is a partial denture?
A – A partial denture is similar to full dentures, and are made of the same material as full dentures. If you have several teeth in one row that are missing between two teeth that are healthy, the dentist can place crowns on either side to attach the partials to them and glue them into place with denture adhesive. The dentist can also just glue them to the gums with denture adhesive as you would with dentures if there are no teeth on either side to hold onto the partial. The technicians at Fort York Dentist in Toronto can answer any of your questions you may have.
