Dentures and Partials – Courtice – Oshawa
Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth which are affixed to wire and a plastic plate. They are custom-made, clasp onto your jaw bone, and install flush against the gums for a comfortable fit. If you’ve had multiple teeth removed due to an accident or decay, dentures are the most popular and inexpensive way to replace them.
Gaps left behind by lost teeth can cause many problems. Your eating habits might cause more pressure and damage to other teeth, your speech will change due to the altered physiology of your mouth, and your teeth might start shifting and realigning due to the newly acquired space. Therefore, it is important to cover up these gaps; you can do that with customizable full or partial dentures.
Full dentures are a complete set of prosthetic teeth affixed to a wire and plastic plate which replace all of your upper teeth, or all of your lower teeth. They are generally removable and can be cleaned on a regular basis.
Partial dentures are built the same way — on a wire and plastic plate — but only replace a few teeth. Not to be confused with bridges, partial dentures clasp to your healthy teeth and are completely removable like full dentures.
Dr. Bedi provides complete full and partial denture service including the fabrication of new custom fitted dentures offering high function and beautiful esthetics.
Dentures are the most affordable, especially when compared with other alternatives like dental fixed bridgework or implant-supported restorations. And not to worry — your diet doesn’t have to change to accommodate the dentures.
Denture repairs are available; in addition, loose dentures can be stabilized with dental implants eliminating worries that your denture may slip out of place.
