The team at the Orangeville Dental Centre may recommend dentures to help restore your smile. We offer partial and full dentures to our patients depending on your individual treatment plan.
What are Dentures?
A denture is a removable dental appliance used to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Taking care of your dentures is essential to your oral health. Our team recommends patients brush their dentures to remove food particles or plaque before removing the dentures. Your dentures may require modifications or repairs over time, due to daily wear.
Full dentures are recommended to patients who need to replace the teeth of the entire upper or lower jaw. Usually full dentures are made with acrylic or porcelain teeth.
Partial dentures are usually recommended to patients when only one or a few teeth are missing. Partial dentures are customized to fit in your mouth and are usually made from acrylic teeth with metal supports.
After Your Denture Procedure
Whether you have full or partial dentures, you might find that they affect the way you normally speak or eat. Rest assured that you will adjust to your new dentures over time.
Our dental professionals provide dentures to patients who are looking to replace single or multiple teeth. Our Orangeville dentists can help design, modify, and clean your dentures according to your needs.
Keeping Your Dentures Clean
To keep your dentures clean be sure to brush them daily with a soft brush specifically designed to remove food and plaque from dentures.
Do not use toothpaste. Many toothpastes are too abrasive for dentures and can cause tiny scratches. Our dentists recommend soaking your dentures in room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution every night.
