Teeth are essential for more than chewing. Teeth allow you to speak clearly and support the structure of your face. If disease or other occurrences have caused tooth loss, you’ll not only notice a difference in these areas, but you may also suffer a loss of confidence in your appearance. There are several ways in which tooth loss can be addressed. Some patients may need only a bridge to fill in the gap while others want more stability with denture implants. Ottawa’s Vranjes Denture Clinic focuses on providing dentures for patients with missing teeth. Given the different types of dentures available, our denturists can match you with the style that works best for you.
Explore Your Options
There are many reasons people lose their teeth. Some lose teeth as a result of an accident, having had the tooth knocked out. Others may have had serious dental decay which caused teeth to fall out. Sometimes certain illnesses or medications contribute to tooth decay that leads to tooth loss. Regardless of the reason, if you have had all or part of your teeth removed, consider dentures. Ottawa residents look to us for high quality, comfortable fitting denture options. Dentures can last for a long time if properly taken care of, often only needing replacement every 5 or 10 years. At Vranjes Denture Clinic, we’re happy to provide dentures for cosmetic reasons, as well as partial dentures and denture implants in Ottawa. We invite you to learn more about each option:
If you need to have all of the teeth removed on one of both of your arches, then denture implants in Ottawa may be for you. A titanium screw – also considered the implant – will be inserted into the bone where the missing tooth is located. Once that has happened, a denture will be attached to the screw, allowing you denture stability.
For those patients who would don’t prefer implants, conventional dentures are an excellent option. Additionally, to make matters easier with lower dentures, we offer two products at an additional cost: soft lining and the Myoldoc™ System by Winder Research.
If you’re missing only a portion of your teeth, the ideal treatment for you may be partial dentures. The two types we offer are cast partials and acrylic (“plastic”) partials.
Talk to a Denturist & See If Dentures Are Right for You
With the denture options available, you may be feeling overwhelmed about which type would work best for you. You may even wonder if dentures are right for you at all. For example, some individuals who have lost only one or a few teeth may use only dental implants which provide a stable, artificial tooth root for a dental crown. But for others, tooth loss means dentures are necessary to ensure the right look and function for their smile. At Vranjes Denture Clinic, we can help you determine if dentures are right to address your tooth loss. If dentures are what you need, we can figure out what type will work best.
