Types of Dentures

You can get the following types of dentures at Londonderry Denture Clinic in Edmonton depending upon how many teeth you are missing as well as other factors:

  • Complete dentures
    These are dentures made to replace all missing natural teeth. Typically, complete dentures are used to replace either the complete upper or the lower set. In some cases, these dentures are also used to replace the complete set of teeth. These are a lifesaver for people who have lost all their teeth naturally or due to some accident.

  • Replacement dentures
    Replacement dentures are likely your second, and in some cases, a third or fourth set of dentures. In most cases, you are familiar with some of the problems associated with wearing artificial teeth. It becomes necessary to replace dentures primarily because of changes to gum ridges as we age and wear to artificial tooth surfaces.

    The frequency of replacing your existing dentures will directly impact how easily you adjust to a new denture. For instance, if dentures are replaced every 5 to 7 years, making the transition to a new denture relatively easy but waiting 10 to 20 years or more before replacing your dentures will make adjusting to your new dentures extremely difficult in most cases.

  • Partial dentures
    A partial denture is a removable dental device used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is essential to develop an attractive smile and to restore function to where missing teeth once were.

    A metal framework is designed and cast to precisely fit around the remaining natural teeth. It is typically held in place with metal clasps. Artificial teeth are then anchored to this frame to provide the appearance and function of the missing natural teeth. 


Issues Caused by Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can be more than a cosmetic problem. When teeth are missing, the following issues may arise:

  • It affects biting and chewing.

  • Adjacent natural teeth may drift into the space left by the missing teeth and cause damage to the surrounding tissues.

  • Missing teeth can also affect the shape of your face and the clarity of your speech.

None of these problems should be allowed to develop when sensible solutions are available. It is extremely important that, before a person begins treatment for a partial denture, they have a full and comprehensive assessment of the remaining natural teeth done by a dentist to establish that the remaining natural teeth can in fact support a partial denture and that all repairs to natural teeth are completed.

Caring for Your Partial Denture

Your denturist will recommend the length of time the removable denture should be worn following the initial installation. For the first few weeks, your new partial denture may feel somewhat uncomfortable, but with any necessary adjustments that are made to the denture, you will adapt and feel more comfortable in time. Removing and inserting your denture will take a little practice, but you will soon get the hang of it with help from your denturist. It is extremely important while inserting your denture that you don’t partially place it and then bite down to move it into position. This can easily damage or bend the denture, diminishing your denture’s ability to function, or even worse, rendering it useless.

Replacing Your Partial Dentures

How often you should replace your partial denture depends on several factors, especially the changes your mouth undergoes over time.
