At Assiniboine Dental Group, our general dentists use partial or full dentures to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are natural-looking artificial tooth replacements that allow patients with missing teeth to keep their face structure, eat properly and speak well. They can be used to replace a row of teeth or a whole jaw.
Type of Dentures
Depending on your tooth loss, there are two types of dentures that can help restore your smile.
- Partial Dentures
If you have more than a few missing teeth or your surrounding teeth are not strong enough to hold a bridge, our dentist will use partial dentures.
Partial dentures are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto your natural teeth. You can remove them for cleaning and sleeping.
- Full Dentures
If you have a whole jaw of missing teeth, your dentist will use full dentures (commonly referred to as false teeth).
Full dentures are a full set of artificial teeth that are held in place by suction. You can also remove them for cleaning and sleeping.
