Dentures in Ottawa
We all know that there is nothing like your natural teeth. This is why we all try to take good care of them throughout our entire lives. But there are times when losing a tooth or two becomes inevitable. Teeth get damaged or knocked out, or they succumb to disease and decay, especially as we get older. In these cases, dentures “fill in the gap”, and allow you to maintain your quality of life. At College Square Dental, we offer services for complete and partial dentures. Our goal is to help you stay healthy and to keep you smiling.
What Are Dentures in Ottawa
Dentures are complete sets of artificial teeth that replace your missing natural teeth. They can be either removable or permanently attached onto dental implants, depending on your particular needs and circumstances. That decision can and will be made after careful examination and consultation with one of our dentists.
We want not only to make your dentures look as good and natural as possible but also to ensure that they are comfortable and fit you well.
Types of Dentures in Ottawa
Complete dentures are exactly what the name implies: they are a replacement for a full set of upper or lower teeth (or both). There are no natural teeth left to support the prosthesis, so the plate is fitted directly onto the gums. Complete dentures are removable, making them easier to clean and store away at night.
As the name would suggest, patients who are missing only a few teeth can opt for a “partial” denture. The partial prosthesis is held in place by several metal clasps that are attached to neighbouring teeth, but it can be removed and re-inserted easily.
Your partial denture will not only replace your missing teeth, but also improve your overall dental health by supporting the neighbouring teeth. When a tooth is missing, its neighbouring teeth
tend to shift and move into the empty space. Partial denture replaces the missing teeth, fills up the space, and prevents your surrounding teeth from shifting and drifting.
There are a number of different types of partial dentures, from acrylic partial dentures to cast partial dentures. Of course, our dental specialists will help you make the right choice, not only for now, but also for the long run. They will advise you what type of partial dentures in Ottawa is the better option in your individual case.
Removable partial or complete dentures have a number of advantages. One obvious one is that they are easy to clean: they can be taken out, cleaned and put back in. The other advantage is that they are adaptable to a changing situation, and usually can be adjusted to minor changes in your mouth.
Implant Supported Dentures
If you are looking for a fixed, permanent tooth replacement solution, implant-supported dentures may be your answer. Both, partial and complete dentures can be supported by sets of one or more implants that are inserted into the jawbone and firmly hold and support the teeth in place, like natural roots.
Any type of tooth replacement takes time – time from tooth extraction to the delivery of your prosthesis.
The solution for that waiting period is immediate dentures. Immediate dentures eliminate that uncomfortable situation of living without any teeth.
Before the extraction, impressions and measurements of your mouth are taken. With the help from your dentist, you then choose the size, shape and shade of your immediate dentures.
After the extraction, these dentures will be inserted immediately, while the local anaesthetic is still working! The immediate denture or dentures will fill the existing gap until it is exchanged for your permanent prosthesis.
In addition to acting as a placeholder, immediate dentures also help control the swelling around, and act as a protective covering over the extraction site. As the healing process may vary from individual to individual, immediate dentures are made to last anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months.
