Dentures Near You

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a good candidate for dentures. This prosthetic device replaces absent teeth to restore their different functions. We offer partial and complete dentures at our office. Both of which are designed using a model of your teeth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures near you or partials are used when a patient’s teeth that are adjacent to the empty space in their smile, are not strong enough for other dental restorations such as a bridge or when a patient is missing several teeth. Partial dentures in Yellowknife are composed of one or more replacement teeth that are secured by clasps that fit onto adjacent teeth. Partial dentures near you can be removed by the user for cleaning and before bed.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures or full dentures are worn when a patient is missing all of their natural teeth. They can be removed and suction holds them in place. Immediate dentures and conventional dentures are the different kinds of conventional dentures available.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures in Yellowknife are fabricated before the extraction of your teeth. Your dentist will take precise measurements and create models of your jaws at your initial appointment. After your teeth are removed, your dentist will insert the immediate dentures. The advantage of this is that you will not have to go without teeth during the healing period which can last up to six months. At this time, changes to your bones and gums can transpire which means your dentist may need to reline your immediate dentures to ensure a proper fit.

Conventional Dentures

Conventional dentures are introduced into your mouth following the extraction of your teeth and the healing of your gums and jaw tissues. To learn more, schedule a consultation with your dentist for dentures in Yellowknife, NWT X1A 2P9.
