Denturist vs Dentist: Why You Need Both

It’s a frequent dilemma for patients suffering from tooth loss: what is the difference between a dentist and a denturist and who should you trust to help restore the function and aesthetics to your smile? Here’s what you need to know about these two professions and how to decide which oral health professional’s services are best suited for you.

Despite many patients believing that dentures are only for senior or older patients, the truth is that tooth loss can happen at any age, to anyone, and may be due to a number of reasons such as:

  • Sports injury
  • Gum disease
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Lifestyle habits (eg. smoking)
  • Dental cavities

Whatever the cause of your tooth loss, and whatever your age, advanced tooth replacement solutions such as denture implants and flexible partials offer a natural-looking and long lasting solution for a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing smile.

What’s The Difference Between a Dentist and Denturist?

For patients suffering from tooth loss, a common question is what’s the difference between a dentist and denturist, and who should I trust for my tooth replacement needs? Before you decide, here’s what you need to know about these two professions:


A dentist is a qualified health care professional who has specialized in the field of teeth. He/she can perform surgeries after diagnosing an issue with your oral health. While they are able to provide dentures, there may be certain reasons why you might decide to see a denturist for your tooth replacement needs.

Dentist vs Denturist: Why Not Use Both?

When it comes to tooth loss, it is far better for patients to seek the services of both a dentist and a denturist. In this way, you will be able to enjoy the comprehensive knowledge of your dentist as far as your oral health is concerned.

Your dentist will be able to identify any additional dental problems that require attention so that you can be sure your dentures will be placed in a safe and healthy environment with a low risk of infection.

Your denturist can then prepare the cavity and make all the necessary arrangements to ensure that your dentures or dental implants are placed perfectly. With your denturist’s specialized knowledge and expertise, you will be able to enjoy a high level of satisfaction and an optimum level of performance from your tooth loss solution.
