Complete and Partial Dentures in Sherwood Park
Missing teeth are more than just an aesthetic problem. It can cause discomfort, affect your ability to speak and eat, and even contribute to bone loss in your jaw. Park Mall Dental Centre’s general dentists can assist you in evaluating different types of dentures to replace your missing teeth. Safeguarding your
oral health takes more than just brushing and flossing; it also means ensuring the structure of your mouth remains intact. Our Sherwood Park team will be able to assess your unique needs and recommend whether immediate, complete, or partial dentures are right for your situation. Schedule an appointment with our dental clinic to discuss your options. Please note that no matter what type of dentures you settle on, it will take time to get used to them and you will require follow-up visits for adjustments.
Why Choose Complete Dentures?
If you are missing all or several of your teeth, complete dentures may be recommended to you. A healing period is required after your teeth have been removed for the dentures, but immediate complete dentures are available in some cases. Immediate dentures will keep you from having to go without teeth, but you will have to come back for adjustments soon after. Park Mall Dental Centre offers both immediate and conventional complete dentures. If you choose the option that allows a healing period, please note it may take up to 12 weeks and consists of the following stages:
- Mould is constructed and fit finalized
- Dentures are provided with the desired colour and bite
- Denture fit and function are tested
- Any adjustments deemed necessary are made
Why Choose Partial Dentures?
When you are only missing a small number of teeth, partial dentures may be the solution. Partial dentures will fill in open spaces left by missing teeth as well as prevent your natural teeth from changing their positions. The partial denture process may take about 8 weeks and is comprised of the following:
- Moulds are formed
- Surrounding teeth are readied for the denture
- Denture is fitted and assessed for fit and function
- Any adjustments considered necessary are made
