About Dentures

Dentistry is all about the perfect smile. At the Northern Dental Centre, we prioritize this above all else. A good pair of dentures can return that ideal set of pearly white teeth to you.

If you are a candidate for dentures, you may be wondering where to turn.

We offer both partial and full dentures to our patients. Come in for an examination at the Northern Dental Centre and we will see if you are a suitable candidate.

Two Types of Dentures

There’s more than one type of dentures you can choose from. This is something that a lot of people don’t know. They just assume that their removable teeth are a replacement for all of their teeth. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Partial Dentures – These are dentures are attached to a metal frame. When placed in the mouth, they fill in the places where teeth are missing. For many people, they opt for partial dentures because they don’t want to undergo a procedure for dental bridges.

Complete Dentures – A complete set of dentures are given to patients who have no teeth, or are planning on extractions of their remaining teeth. It should be noted that complete dentures often require a lot of adjustments to get precisely the right settings for comfort and function.

Denture Care is Critical to Maintaining Good Oral Health

We can’t underline just how important proper denture care is. This is why we always advise our patients to think carefully before they decide whether they want a set of dentures over bridges and crowns.

When they are out of your mouth dentures are extremely fragile. If you drop them the chances are they will break. Make sure you handle them with care.

You also have to take into account plaque build-up. Contrary to popular belief, you still have to keep your dentures clean. Failure to do so could cause an infection of the gum tissue.

You should brush your dentures on a daily basis and rinse them after eating.

Am I a Candidate for Dentures?

There’s no way to know the answer to this without seeing you first. We recommend that you book an appointment with us by giving Northern Dental Centre a call at 780-532-1786.

We can examine your mouth and discuss your options so you can make an informed decision.

FAQ's for Dentures

What if I break my dentures?

Get in touch with us immediately so we can schedule an appointment where we can have your dentures repaired. Wearing broken dentures can irritate the gums and cause a lot of discomfort.

How do I clean my dentures?

Rinse them out after every meal. Clean them once daily by using a soft-bristle brush with dish soap and water, or a denture cleaner which can be purchased at your local drug store.

Where should I keep my dentures?

Make sure you keep your dentures in the relevant cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out. Dry dentures can crack and break.

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to WELCOME YOU BACK! We are practicing SAFE DENTISTRY!

Rest assured that we have taken steps above what was required. After all, your health is our highest priority. We are finally OPEN and look forward to seeing you again soon!

OUR NEW HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOL:

  • When we speak with you regarding your appointment, we will be asking you additional screening questions. Patients who exhibit any symptoms will need to postpone their treatment.
  • When you arrive to your appointment, please wait in your car until your appointment time and bring as little as possible into the office with you.
  • If you have a mask or face covering, we encourage you to wear one to your appointment.
  • We will ask that you sanitize/wash your hands with soap and water upon entering the office and before leaving.
  • There will be a consent form for patients to sign upon arrival and we want you to know that the guidelines in place currently have staff member signing off on a daily consent that ensures they are ready and prepared to provide treatment in the safest possible way.

We want to assure everyone that our office takes the safety and health of our patients, their families, team members and doctors very seriously. Although our operations will be slightly different today than they were previously, we are excited to finally welcome you all back in a slow and safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition to the new normal.

Sincerely,
Your Dental Team
