Why You Shouldn't Ignore Missing Or Damaged Teeth

Do you feel like you need dentures but aren't sure where to start? 

There are many reasons why patients ignore missing or damaged teeth, but in the end, this can do much more harm than good. In this blog, we’re covering the top reasons why Calgary patients may delay dental treatment and solutions to each of these issues. Together, we’re committed to making dental care more accessible, affordable, and available, to all Calgarians who need it.

Reason #1: Concerns About Cost

In today’s economy, it is understandable that Calgarians are concerned about budgetary issues. At FutureSmiles Denture Clinic, we offer a variety of affordable treatments, ranging from traditional dentures to implants. However, we never want our patients to have to settle for cheap dentures or forgo highly beneficial procedures like dental implants because they’re worried about the cost of treatment.

How We Help:

  • At FutureSmiles, we offer affordable payment plans
  • Our Calgary clinic accepts Dental Card benefits
  • We’re proud to help our patients find out if they're eligible for any government benefits or coverage


Reason #2: Not Feeling Comfortable Seeking Care

Are you delaying visiting a dentist or denturist despite the fact that you know one or more of your teeth have an issue? If you are nervous or afraid of the prospect of extensive dental procedures, we totally understand. We offer a caring, professional, non-judgemental environment, where we are happy to answer any questions you may have. We want our denture and dental implant patients in Calgary to feel 100% comfortable with any procedure they opt for.


Reason #3 Difficulty Accessing Care

For many patients, particularly elderly ones, getting to the right doctor can be a challenge. Driving and taking transit across the city can be challenging at best of times, and even more so for those with mobility limitations or a lower level of energy. Additionally, some patients in nursing homes or specialized care facilities may find it even more difficult to access the care they need.

That is why, at FutureSmiles Denture Clinic, we provide mobile consultations and house calls for any patients who require our care.


Reason #4: Lack of Options

Denture and Dental Implant Types

One-size-fits-all solutions are not good for all patients. Many patients dislike the idea of conventional dentures and yet may be afraid of taking the plunge and having damaged teeth extracted and replaced.

However, at FutureSmiles we work carefully with you to ensure that you are able to get the right care for your needs.

We offer a wide variety of denture and dental implants solutions including:

  • Single implants
  • Implant-supported bridges
  • Flexible dentures


Reason #5: Uncertainty About Aesthetic Results

Many people are also hesitant to look into denture solutions because they fear going without teeth. Fortunately, innovative options like “teeth in a day” and dental implant procedures allow you to get temporary teeth to wear as your mouth heals until your final dental implants can be replaced.

Additionally, the time of "fake-looking" dentures is long gone. Nowadays, dentures and dental implants are carefully made and colour-matched in a way that makes them almost indistinguishable from natural teeth.
