Are your natural teeth damaged, weakened or missing?
Custom Fitted Dentures At
Our Dental Clinic In Scarborough
Are your natural teeth damaged, weakened or missing? Whether it is from an accident, decay or other condition, lost or damaged teeth can impact your smile and even the functionality of your mouth. Missing teeth can also cause your existing ones to drift or damage your jaw. Dentures are the best option for replacing missing and damaged teeth. They restore your smile, improve confidence, and protect your remaining teeth.
Types Of Dentures
There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Your dentist will decide which type of denture is right for you based on the condition of your teeth and your needs.
- Partial Dentures – These are removable dentures used when your existing teeth are too weak to hold a bridge or you are just missing a few teeth. The partial denture comprises one or more artificial teeth held in place by a clasp that attaches to your existing teeth. At night, partial dentures are removed and cleaned.
- Complete Dentures – These are used when you are missing all of your natural teeth. There are two types of complete dentures: conventional and immediate. They are held in place by suction and can be removed at night for cleaning.
Will My Insurance Cover Dentures?
Yes, most insurance plans do cover dentures. But you will want to check with your insurance company to see how extensive your coverage is. In most cases, patients need to co-pay or pay a deductible.
How Are My Dentures Made?
Dentures take a few weeks to complete. At our dental clinic in Scarborough, we will take a series of impressions of your teeth, measurements, and see how much space is between your jaw and teeth. Then, we will create models for you to try, ensuring they fit before the permanent dentures are cast. You will return for a final appointment to adjust and fit the final dentures.
