Our Pickering dentists use natural-looking dentures to replace missing teeth and the gum and jaw tissue around them.
Dentures are artificial tooth replacements that allow patients with missing teeth to keep their face structure, eat properly and speak well. They can be used to replace one missing tooth, a row of teeth (partial dentures) or a whole jaw (full dentures).
Replacing missing teeth is essential to your oral health, because it helps to preserve the surrounding oral structures.
If you are missing all or some of your natural teeth, dentures are an affordable option for replacing them.
Whether you need dentures to replace one missing tooth, a row of teeth or a whole jaw, there are two types of dentures: conventional and immediate.
Your dentist will wait to fit these dentures until any remaining teeth have been extracted (if needed) and your gum tissue has healed. This process takes about 4 to 6 weeks.
Your dentist will have these dentures made in advance so they can be fitted right after the extraction procedure. In this case, your dentist will make alterations to the dentures after the gum tissue heals.
