Dentist vs Denturist

Which Is the Better Option?

Tooth replacement is a necessity if you have suffered from tooth loss and dentures/denture implants are the most common and effective solution for many patients.

However, while most people are aware about the importance of dentures, many don’t understand the key differences between visiting a dentist or a denturist.

The cost of dentures is a huge investment so prior to any tooth restoration work it’s important to be aware of these differences and that's why a denturist is your better option.

What is a Denturist?

Unlike a dentist who works with a variety of patients and can treat a range of dental issues including cavities or gum disease, a denturist is a specialized dental-care professional who is trained and works exclusively with denture patients.

Denture Services Provided by Your Calgary Denturist

Denturists are classified as health-care providers who give denture solutions that improve the oral and overall health & well-being of their patients.

There are many services a denturist provides, including:

1. Examinations and Consultations

During your denture consultation, your denturist will examine the soft and hard tissues of your mouth as well as the surrounding oral cavity. In addition, they will complete a comprehensive medical and dental history.

This is to ensure that your denture requirements are accurately assessed and that you are provided with the most suitable denture solutions for your specific needs.

2. Complete Upper & Lower Dentures

If you have suffered extensive tooth loss, your denturist can provide you with complete dentures to replace all the missing teeth on your upper and/or lower arch.

3. Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are ideal for patients who have only lost some of their natural teeth in their upper/lower arch. Not only does this denture solution fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it helps to prevent your remaining teeth from shifting.

4. Denture Implants

Denture implants are an innovative, alternative to traditional dentures. The implant acts like a root of a tooth, providing a solid foundation for dentures. They can be used to support a single artificial tooth, partial dentures or full dentures.

While they are becoming a popular choice for denture wearers, they may not be suitable for all patients. Contact our denturist to find out if you are a suitable candidate for this treatment option.
