Dentures From Toothworks
Dentures are a set of synthetic teeth that can be taken out and put back into the mouth to replace damaged or missing teeth. Dentures take some getting used to but with advancing technology today’s dentures are being manufactured to fit more comfortably than ever. Today’s dentures also look and feel more realistic than previous models.
At Toothworks Oliver Dentistry clinic, we are committed to providing our patients with the latest high-quality dentures that look and feel like natural teeth. Our team of dental professionals can fit you for a custom pair of dentures that are designed to suit the shape of your mouth, and we can help you get adjusted to wearing them in your day to day life. Here is some more information about the different denture options available from Toothworks Oliver Dentistry.
Full Arch Dentures
A full arch denture is a removable tooth replacement option for those who need all their teeth replaced. They can be crafted to provide the characteristics (tooth shape and colour) the patient desires. Advances have been made in the materials used for dentures and in the way they are designed. If you already have dentures (partial or full arch) you may be experiencing a loose fit or denture slipping. This can lead to gum sores, can affect your chewing and your speech and decrease your confidence when speaking and/or laughing with others. At Toothworks Oliver Dentistry, we can help restore your dentures to the correct fit. If you’ve been experiencing pain or difficulty with your current dentures, contact us today and our team of dental professionals will refit your dentures or design a new custom set of dentures that are better suited to your needs.
Partial Dentures are used to replace missing teeth. Partials have metal hooks that grab onto the neighbouring teeth for support. Unfortunately, the hooks have a tendency to loosen up the teeth and partial dentures have the tendency to get loose and require multiple adjustments throughout the years. On the upper, there is a large piece of metal that goes across the roof of the mouth which can interfere with taste sensation and/or have food collected under it. Additionally, the partial plate can press into the gum tissue and cause sores. The partial dental plate must be taken in and out each day for cleaning. If you are considering partial dentures, contact us today at Toothworks Oliver Dentistry Clinic and our team of dental professionals will fit you for your very own custom patrol dentures and explain all the necessary care and maintenance required.
Denture Instructions: How to Keep Your Dentures Clean, Comfortable and Healthy
Just like your regular teeth, dentures require a certain amount of care and attention. Proper maintenance is important to the wellbeing of your dentures—this includes maintaining a regular oral hygiene routine to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible. Occasionally, it is difficult to adapt to full or partial dentures. At first they may feel loose, bulky and awkward while speaking. For a quicker adjustment period, follow these instructions:
- At first, wear your dentures all the time.
- Do not use adhesive unless Dr. Bondar advises you to do so.
- You should remove your dentures when you go to sleep.
- After removing dentures, clean with a toothbrush and place in a bowl of water. They can be soaked in a commercial denture cleanser, but brushing them is essential.
- Any signs of “sore spots,” discomfort, or looseness that is causing you difficulty should be brought to our attention.
Never adjust the dentures yourself. Every person and every mouth is different; therefore, adjustment periods will vary. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort while adjusting to your dentures, book an appointment to see one of our specialists at Toothworks Oliver Dentistry to have the problem assessed and corrected.
