Are you in need of replacement teeth? Whether you require full or partial dentures, our Calgary dentists can always fit you for a new set. At Perspective Dental Centre, you have a choice as to the type of denture you may select. If in doubt, a consultation at either one of our clinics can help clear up any questions you may have.
Conventional dentures are created once the natural teeth have been removed and the gums have had time to heal. A mold is then made to facilitate the creation of your new removable teeth. The only drawback being that you will be without any teeth for an extended period (a few months). However, when your new dentures arrive, you will have a product that has been accurately molded to the gums which generally results in better fit.
If you opt for immediate dentures, you forgo the wait of having to heal. Immediate dentures are molded prior to any teeth extraction. The dentures are then ready to wear upon extraction of your natural teeth. However, patients should be aware that immediate dentures will require additional checkups as they tend to require more alterations (tightening or loosening) over time than conventional dentures.
Partial dentures are an option when several, but not all, of your teeth are missing or require extraction. They are a removable version of a dental bridge.
