Replace Gaps in Your Smile With Dentures
If you have multiple missing teeth, dentures are another option to replace missing teeth using an oral insert that is removable, suiting both daily use and appealing to your aesthetic appearance. At Queen & Albert, we will complete an oral assessment on your mouth, then outline a plan for either partial or complete dentures that look natural, are comfortable, and make you want to smile once more.
What are dentures?
Dentures consist of replacement prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-coloured plastic base, held in place by a metal frame. Dentures are a highly-viable treatment option for those with few remaining natural teeth, as the denture prevents teeth from changing position.
What are partial and complete dentures?
Complete dentures are used when all of a patient’s teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Will my smile still look natural?
Yes! To create your custom dentures, we consider your specific jaw size, the colour and shape of your existing teeth and any other individual needs. Your dentures will be made in an advanced laboratory using the highest-quality porcelain materials for a realistic appearance and fully-functional smile. At Queen & Albert, we will walk you through how to insert your dentures and secure them so you can enjoy every day with a beautiful smile.
Why should I replace my missing teeth?
The teeth and jawbone support each other to maintain the shape and position of your teeth. When some are missing, teeth can naturally shift, leading to a weak jaw and unwanted gaps. That is why it’s essential to replace missing teeth and fill any voids within the mouth.
What will I expect when I get my dentures?
You may experience a slight adjustment period when you first use dentures. It may take a small amount of time to get used to something foreign in your mouth. Some normal adjustments include:
- feelings of discomfort while the oral muscles learn to keep the dentures in place;
- minor soreness and irritation experienced in the mouth;
- increased production of saliva;
- difficulty adjusting to eating with dentures;
- impaired speech when pronouncing certain words.
Will it be difficult to eat with your new dentures?
Like anything new, there will be a transition period. But suppose you do experience difficulty eating with your new dentures. In that case, we recommend starting by eating small pieces of soft food and avoiding chewing gum or using toothpicks until you are completely comfortable wearing your new dentures. You will eventually get used to your dentures and feel confident when speaking, chewing and smiling. Our helpful team can answer any of your questions about how to regain a beautiful smile.
