Our dentists at offer natural-looking dentures to replace missing teeth, as well as the surrounding gum and jaw tissue.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial tooth replacements that allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial profile, eat properly and speak well. Full or partial dentures can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or all of the teeth.
Replacing missing teeth is essential when it comes to maintaining good oral health over time. If you are missing all or some of your natural teeth, dentures can be an affordable option for restoring your smile.
Types of Dentures
Whether you need dentures to replace one missing tooth, a row of teeth or a whole jaw, our Etobicoke dentists can help you choose the right option for you.
- Full Dentures
Full dentures, commonly referred to as false teeth or complete dentures, are a good choice if you are missing a full jaw of teeth.
You can have them fitted for your upper or lower gums, and they are held in place by suction and/or with the help of an oral adhesive.
Full dentures can be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
- Partial Dentures
Our dentists may recommend partial dentures if you are missing more than a few teeth or if your surrounding teeth are not strong enough to support a dental bridge.
Partial dentures are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto your natural teeth or a tooth replacement like a dental crown.
They can be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
- Implant-Supported Dentures
In cases where there is not enough gum tissue to support full dentures, dental implants may be used to help stabilize the dentures for a secure and comfortable fit.
Benefits of Dentures
When teeth are missing, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can also help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much.
Filling in a gap caused by missing teeth can also help to maintain your long-term oral health. By fitting you for dentures, your dentist will also help protect your remaining teeth from shifting, which can lead to more serious issues like gum disease.
