No two mouths are made the alike and the same goes for dentures.  Dentures in Calgary can be broken into two categories: full dentures and partial dentures.  One of Calgary’s best denture clinics, Future Smiles, explains the difference between the two options.  Read on to learn more.

Complete dentures are made for individuals that have had all of their natural teeth removed.  Complete dentures can be made prior to the removal of teeth or even weeks after.  Like most things that we use on a daily basis, your complete dentures will require maintenance at times.  Denture adjustments are typically made due to changes in our mouths, such as gums shrinking or even bone loss over time. 

Calgary denturists use partial dentures when a patient has one or more natural teeth remaining in either jaw.  Partial dentures work by bridging your natural teeth with the artificial ones. The natural teeth have crowns placed on them so that the new artificial ones can be connected to create a whole new set of working teeth.  Partials can be made to fill any vacant spots where a tooth has been removed and they can also keep natural teeth from shifting.

As mentioned earlier, dentures are tailored specifically for each individual’s needs.  Whether you require full or partial dentures in Calgary, your denturist will work with you to ensure that your implants are comfortable and working properly.  If you have any questions concerning dentures or if your dentures need repairs, call Future Smiles Denture Clinic located in SW Calgary today at 403.475.0016.
