Dentures

Timeless Prosthetics Designed for Modern Smiles

Are you missing teeth? It’s a problem as old as time. Throughout the ages, people have tried to fill gaps in the smile in a number of creative ways, from using animal teeth to wood shaped into dental crowns and, yes, sometimes even other people’s teeth. Porcelain dentures first appeared around 1770, and today, dentures and partial dentures are more comfortable and natural-looking than ever before. We’ve come a long way in tooth replacement — keep reading to find out how much you have to look forward to with modern dentures!

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

 

Dentures are often a suitable option for anyone who is missing an entire row of teeth. These prosthetics not only look and feel natural, but they offer far more benefits to individuals suffering from tooth loss than those created 30 or even 40 years ago. At Torbram Dental, we know how difficult it can be to struggle with eating and speaking as a result of your missing teeth, but you no longer have to suffer from the emotional, mental, and physical repercussions caused by tooth loss.

Choosing to schedule a consultation with your dentist in Brampton will allow you to meet with a professional who can easily review your smile in its entirety and determine if a partial, full, or implant denture is right for you. As long as you possess good general gum health, you will likely be eligible for a customized prosthetic.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

 

There are three different types of dentures to choose from. During your meeting with Dr. Fava or Dr. Babahami, they will recommend which solution might be best for your individual needs:

Partial Dentures

When gaps between your teeth make it harder to bite down and chew, you will find that a partial denture can remedy this problem and allow you to enjoy eating once more. Crafted from a gum-colored, acrylic base and porcelain or acrylic teeth, this puzzle piece prosthetic will fit seamlessly along your arch, filling in the gaps and using your healthy adjacent teeth to hold it in place with the help of metal clips or clasps.

Full Dentures

If all your teeth are missing from the upper or lower arch, a full denture can be created using the same materials as a partial. Instead of relying on metal clips to hold your prosthetic in place, a full denture will sit on top of your gums and use your natural suction. It is possible, however, to use a small bit of dental adhesive to help hold your denture in place, preventing it from slipping or falling out while eating or speaking.

Implant Dentures

An implant denture is an alternative to the traditional denture, allowing you to enjoy a permanent and fully functional prosthetic. Using between 4 and 6 titanium implant posts, they are surgically placed into your jawbone and used to support a customized denture that is secured to your implants. This design ensures a greater bite force and chewing power as well as continuous stimulation to your jawbone, which can help reduce the potential for deterioration over time.

Benefits of Dentures

 

An important benefit you may not have considered when choosing dentures is the fact that your prosthetic is custom-made to fit your smile perfectly. Taking careful measurements and noting various details about your smile, we will transfer this information to lab technicians who will work diligently to fabricate a prosthetic that looks natural and feels completely comfortable.

As a denture-wearer, you can also expect to enjoy these additional benefits:

  • Dentures are much less expensive than dental implants and are often covered, in part, by dental insurance
  • They make it possible to enjoy eating and speaking again because of the additional bite power and clarity you will possess
  • You will be able to embrace a better quality of life because your dentures will give you a full, complete smile once again
  • You’ll be free to eat a diet consisting of healthy, nutritious foods

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Dentures in Brampton are a tried-and-true solution to replace missing teeth. These customized prosthetics don’t just revitalize your smile visually, but they also improve the overall quality of your life by making it easier to do basic daily tasks, like eating and speaking. The price of your dentures depends on a few different factors, like the materials you choose to have them crafted from and whether your dental insurance benefits will cover the cost. We’ll walk you through all of these details at your initial consultation once we’ve had a chance to examine your smile and hear more about any goals or expectations you have for the treatment.
