Dentures at Junction Village Dental

Do you have multiple missing teeth? If you don’t qualify for a fixed bridge or dental implants, dentures are the next best option for restoring your smile.

Depending on how many teeth are missing, we can create a full denture or partial design. Each choice replaces all of the missing teeth at once, for an efficient and predictable outcome.

Full and Partial Dentures

It rests directly on top of your gum tissues, framing the anatomical contour of your bone (where the teeth once stood). This design creates a suction to help hold it in place.

Partial dentures, on the other hand, allow you to preserve your remaining teeth and avoid unnecessary extractions. Instead of replacing all of the teeth at once, it only restores the areas of the ones that are already missing. It uses small clasps to grip around your neighbouring teeth, securing it in place (no suction is needed).

Dentures and partials can have an acrylic or chrome base, depending on the strength needed and any aesthetic goals.

The Treatment Process

The first step to getting a new denture made is having an impression taken of your mouth. From this mold, a framework is created to rest over your smile. In some cases, we can start this process before any necessary extractions (so that we can remove diseased teeth but limit your time between the extraction and placement of your denture).

When the lab has completed the design of your denture, we’ll try it in and make sure everything fits appropriately. You’ll wear it, practice talking and eating with it in, then return to our office for a final adjustment.

Advantages of Dentures

  • Affordable tooth replacement
  • Fast results
  • Replace all missing teeth at once

When you want the quickest way to restore your smile at the most economical price, dentures are a proven alternative for our patients who can’t get implants or bridges.

Customised Design

Having a denture doesn’t mean sacrificing the appearance of your smile. Full and partial designs are each customised to the tooth colour, shape, contour and size preferences of each individual. We work closely with the lab to ensure you receive the best outcome possible.
