In the past, losing all your teeth meant having none at all - and, more recently, having an insertable denture that feels awkward and is a cheap facsimile of the real thing. Today, things are different - and whether you need to replace your teeth fully or in part, you can count on any of a number of next-gen solutions that deliver an aesthetic, permanent and reliable solution that looks (and feels) just like real teeth!
This is great news - especially for the 26% of adults aged 65+ who have lost all their upper or lower teeth. Whether you already have a set of dentures that needs stabilization or an upgrade, or are looking into dentures for the first time, we’d be happy to consult you - and offer a full range of services that gives you a set of beautiful teeth and the ability to live life fully.
If you’ve lost all your teeth, one option is to get each of them replaced individually. This is extremely expensive - and can also take months or years due to the complicated process of restoration… Not to mention the exorbitant costs of getting implants installed piecemeal.
An alternative to this is fixed dentures: a permanent, implanted bridge that functions like your natural roots would, and only requires as little as four dental implants to carry your full set of teeth. This is a pain-reduced, time-reduced and cost-reduced alternative that takes all the difficulty out of getting dentures.
If you only need certain teeth replaced, you don’t need a fixed denture - and will probably benefit from a partial one instead. These are fixed to your gums and remaining teeth, which makes them look natural and feel unobtrusive.
Dentures tend to be made of semi-pliable materials that approximate the feel of the inside of your mouth. As a result, they may shrink and lose stability over time, causing discomfort and, potentially, jaw atrophy.
To prevent this from happening, it’s important to stabilize your dentures on time. You can do this at our clinic, whether you’ve got partial dentures, full ones or a unique solution that requires an experienced professional’s maintenance work.
