How Dentures Can Provide You With A Beautiful Smile

How Dentures Can Provide You With A Beautiful Smile

Tooth loss can occur at any age due to a number of factors including decay, disease, or an injury to the area. If this is the case for you, getting dentures can not only help you regain your ability to eat, but they can also do wonders for your self-confidence and make sure you get your smile back.

Affordable dentures are a real option for Calgarians who want to have a functional and appealing smile again. Find a clinic that assists with direct billing and denture financing.

Here is what to expect when looking into the world of dentures and denture implants: 

There are a few main considerations to take into account before booking your first appointment at your Calgary denture clinic. Considerations such as:

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures? Although dentures theoretically are a great idea for anyone with tooth loss, there are some considerations that might influence your decision whether to go ahead with dentures or denture implants, or not. Here are some of the factors that your denturist will look at before choosing the best way forward for you:

  1. How many teeth have you lost, and are you going to lose more?
  2. Are you experiencing bone density loss? If so, this can affect your ability to wear denture implants.
  3. How healthy are the tissues of the mouth surrounding the jaw bone?
  4. Are there any other health concerns that could affect the ability to wear dentures?

Whatever the answers to these questions are, an experienced technician will be able to fit you with the best option for you and your individual needs.

Will I Need Tooth Extractions Prior to Getting Dentures? This is a common question and concern for individuals contemplating full or partial dentures. If your teeth are in relatively good, and healthy condition and you are only replacing a few teeth in a row, then a partial set can be a great option for you. If you have not yet lost all of your teeth, but the ones left are not in great health, you may find yourself needing to have the remaining teeth removed prior to getting your beautiful, new, complete set of dentures. This is an important step for maintaining excellent oral health and it should be taken into consideration before getting dentures.

Are Dentures Permanent? There are two options to consider and discuss with your denturist prior to choosing which option will be best for you. Removable dentures are highly affordable and can last anywhere from 5-10 years when well cared for. Implant support dentures are a bit more of an investment in the beginning, but have the added benefits of lasting considerably longer (closer to 10-20 years) and do not need to be removed for cleaning and sleeping. Both styles of dentures are incredibly popular and offer long lasting tooth replacements for patients.

Q: What determines how much dentures cost in Calgary?
A: The exact cost of dentures will vary based on a number of details such as:

  • How many appointments, extractions, and preparations are necessary prior to fitting the dentures
  • The overall health of the remaining teeth, tissues, and mouth and if any treatment plans are needed
  • Partial or complete dentures
  • Removable dentures, or implant supported dentures
  • Types of materials used to make the dentures
  • As you can see, a number of variables will come into play when creating your custom teeth replacement plan. At Future Smiles Denture Clinic in Calgary we provide our patients with a variety of price ranges, options, and financing plans if they are not fully covered by insurance.

Q: What happens if I need teeth pulled before dentures?
A: If your denturist determines you need teeth extracted prior to getting your new dentures here is what you can expect:

  1. Your denturist will freeze your mouth
  2. A tool will be used to loosen the remaining teeth
  3. The teeth, and attached roots, will be gently removed 
  4. The open spot in the tissue will be sealed off with a suture

Q: Are implant supported dentures considered surgery?
A: Yes, this is considered an outpatient surgical procedure, meaning you will be able to go home after it’s complete. You will have local anesthesia to completely numb the area, and many patients are given something to relax and ensure they are 100% comfortable during the surgery. Afterwards, you will be sent home from the denture clinic with a prescription to help remain comfortable while healing.
