Missing most or all of your teeth can cause problems with day to day activities such as talking, laughing or eating. Our Bells Corners dental team offers many options for replacing missing teeth.
Dentures and partials
Dentures are one of the most common methods of tooth replacement for loss of all, or most of your teeth. After a period of adjustment, you will become used to your dentures and be able speak, eat, and enjoy greater functionality with ease.
There are several types of dentures: conventional dentures are used to replace all of the patient's teeth, immediate dentures are used to give patients a temporary solution between having the remaining teeth removed and receiving a conventional set of dentures. Over-dentures are fitted over the remaining teeth to restore the patient’s smile. Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth in a row.
What to expect
Our goal is for you to have a comfortable, natural looking set of teeth that helps you regain your quality of life. We will start by taking a mold of your natural teeth and gums to make sure that your dentures will fit comfortably once you’re ready to wear them. If needed, your teeth will be extracted once the mold is taken. When your dentures are ready, we will guide you through a fitting process to make sure your dentures are as comfortable and functional as possible, for as long as possible.
