If you have lost teeth, our dental practitioners in Windsor and Belle River offer both complete and partial dentures.
Dentures offer our patients a solution to replacing lost teeth. Madison Dental and Alexis Dental offer a range of dental solutions to suit your needs.
Complete dentures are placed in your mouth immediately after all your teeth are removed.
Depending on the patient and the technique, a complete denture can take us between 6 to 12 weeks to complete. First, we take an impression of the upper and lower arches of your mouth to establish your dental structure. We then help you select the shape and color of your denture teeth.
During the next visit we check the appearance and functionality of the dentures. Sometimes it is necessary to repeat this step to ensure that everything is just right for you.
After fit and appearance are achieved, we send the denture for fabrication. We remove the remaining teeth and deliver the denture.
Partial dentures can be taken in and out of your mouth. They consist of a denture base, which closely resembles the color of your gums and denture teeth, which are attached to a supporting framework. Partial dentures attach to your existing teeth via a clasp or some other retentive device.
Making a partial denture requires about 6-8 weeks. We begin by preparing the supporting teeth. Next, we take an impression of the upper and lower arches of your mouth and record your bite.
At the subsequent visits we check the appearance and function of the partial denture teeth and gums.
There are newly developed techniques in making partial dentures. One such advance is an implant-supporting partial dentures that gives additional support to the partial denture. There are also partial dentures that uses a special material called valplast. Consult with a professional when choosing the right denture for you.
A stayplate will replace the missing tooth or teeth and can help you with your chewing and speaking until a more permanent solution is achieved. A stayplate is a treatment to prevent existing teeth from shifting in your mouth and creating bigger problems.
We make stayplates using a similar process to partial dentures.
