Smiling and laughing, communicating clearly, eating well, and feeling good about ourselves are simple joys we all deserve. Yet even a few missing teeth can have a severe impact on those quality of life factors. Dr. Jameela Jifri helps patients throughout the Milton, ON area rediscover oral function and confidence with quality dentures.
Types of dentures available in Milton, ON
Dr. Jifri and her team at Scott and Derry Dental Care genuinely enjoy denture cases. They understand the challenges faced by individuals with missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures and work hard to get you smiling again.
Here are denture options available at the office:
- Partial – One or multiple missing teeth in an arch can be replaced with this technique. The frame has metal fasteners that clip to existing teeth to stabilize the denture.
- Single – This full denture replaces all teeth, as well as contiguous oral tissues, in the upper or lower arch.
- Complete – A full set of upper and lower teeth that work together to restore function. Well-designed complete dentures help to restore facial and lip volume, too.
- Immediate – This denture, partial or full, is designed in advance and inserted on the day teeth are extracted. It protects the mouth as it heals, and you don’t have to go without teeth during the recovery period. When healing is complete, and the shape of mouth tissues stabilized, the denture is relined or replaced to ensure comfortable fit.
- Implant-retained – Dental implants – usually four, six, or eight – are placed in an arch. A full denture is constructed with attachments that snap onto implant abutments for dramatically improved stability and comfort. An implant-supported denture also helps to preserve jaw bone, avoiding a sunken facial appearance.
Basically, a denture is a removable prosthetic that holds artificial teeth in the place of those that are missing. A denture has an acrylic base colored pink to resemble gum tissue. Teeth are usually made of strong acrylic resin that resists stains and wear. At Scott and Derry Dental Care, the size, shape, and arrangement of teeth, and the color of teeth and gums is customizable. Each aspect is tailored to complement the appearance your face and most importantly to support oral function.
We work closely with a reputable denture lab in the fabrication of your new smile. You can expect several visits during design and fitting. Before you leave the office, you receive unhurried guidance on adapting to denture wear, and how to care for your dentures and mouth.
