Dentures are removable appliances that offer a temporary or permanent solution for teeth replacement. Fabricated from durable materials, dentures will restore your smile, ability to eat and your confidence. If you are looking for tooth replacement solutions, look no further than Signature Smiles dental clinic in Regina.
Types of Dentures
Dentures can replace gaps in your smile caused by just a few missing teeth or complete dental arches. Based on the number of teeth they replace, dentures fall into two groups: partial dentures and complete dentures. Full (complete) dentures replace all of the teeth in an entire dental arch and can be used both on the upper and lower arch. If you are missing multiple teeth but still have some remaining natural teeth, we recommend partial dentures. The partial denture clasps to the natural teeth to ensure a secure fit and stability. Our Regina dental clinic offerspartial and full dentures, denture care, and repair services.
In most cases, dentures are fully supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues in your mouth. However, in some cases, the surrounding structures cannot stabilize the denture, resulting in a constant shifting. The denture may wear down the bony structure and begin rubbing on your soft tissues, causing discomfort and pain.
At Dr. Greg Konotopetz’s general dental practice in Regina, SK, we highly recommend implant-retained dentures to prevent these issues. Implant-retained dentures are attached to dental implantsx instead of resting solely on your gums. The main advantages of implant-retained dentures include:
- Support and durability while speaking, chewing and smiling.
- Prevention of jaw bone recession and the face changes associated with it.
- Elimination of the need for adhesive products
