Full and Partial Dentures
At Midpark Dental, we offer superior denture solutions for patients with missing teeth in our Southeast Calgary dental office.
Smile Normally Again With Dentures
Full dentures are the most common dentures made. A full denture can be crafted to fit either the upper arch, lower arch or both. The upper denture has a pink denture base that extends to the roof of the mouth to create suction and help keep the denture in place. The lower denture is u-shaped and is designed to fit snugly along the bottom ridge of the jaw.
The term “false teeth” concerns a lot of people. However, we take the necessary steps to ensure that your dentures look as natural as possible. Dentures have come a long way—they look incredibly natural, and since missing teeth tend to cause a loss of support for your lips, cheeks, and facial muscles, your new full denture fills out the shape of your face and instantly improves your smile!
Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed from your mouth. Dentures consist of a plate or frame that holds one or more artificial teeth in place.
Find Out If Partial or Full Dentures Are Right For You
We know that restoring your natural teeth for a lifetime of use is important to you, which is why we offer Southeast Calgary denture options to help you achieve your goal of optimum dental health.
At Midpark Dental we use dental implants or dental implant-supported alternatives to replace missing teeth in a number of ways. Dental implants can be used to support a permanently cemented bridge, as a single tooth replacement with a dental crown and as an implant-supported denture, which uses a dental implant to clip the entire into place offering more support for the denture.
Unfortunately, not everyone is an ideal candidate for dental implants. If you would like to find out if dental implants are right for you, we offer dental implant consultations before you consider this treatment option.
If you are missing one or more teeth, a removable partial denture is a reliable option to re-establish the function of your mouth. A partial denture is made from durable materials that resemble your gum tissue and missing teeth. A metal framework is also made to clip onto the remaining natural teeth in order to hold the denture in place.
Partial dentures are used primarily to:
Replace missing teeth.
Improve your ability to chew naturally, and with confidence.
Make it possible for you to eat your favourite foods.
Maintain a healthier mouth.
Aid in the preservation of your remaining natural teeth.
Help prevent and treat problems of the jaw joint (TMJ).
Help develop a confident smile.
Support the structures of your face for a more youthful appearance.
Enhance your self-esteem.
Dental implants can now be used to support full dentures to create better support for the denture. Using dental implants, the denture “clips” into the dental implants, providing support that is second to none!
Please be aware that the cost of an implant supported dentures is greater than that for standard dentures, but there is an added benefit in that the implant supported solutions feel more natural, are stronger and more stable and will help maintain your jaw bone over time.
Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for an implant supported bridge or implant supported denture, if you would like to explore the potential for implants supported denture solutions, we would be happy to discuss this with you during your denture consultation.
Wearing dentures can pose some problems, from an improper fit, clicking and noises when eating, unnatural looking, and more. At Midpark Dental we are pleased to offer South Calgary an alternative to conventional dentures.
Dental implants are made from surgical-grade materials and acts to replace the missing root of your tooth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, and after a short period of healing, your dental implant is fitted with a ceramic dental crown or bridge to complete the restoration.
We also recommend dental implants for patients with dentures to maximize the fit and comfort of the denture when problems such as inadequate bone levels are or irregular bone shape interfere with the function of the denture. Patients that experience pain and irritation to their gum tissues, and resort to using denture adhesives are great candidates for implant-supported dentures.
The benefits of dental implants include:
Enhance the natural appearance of your teeth.
Save surrounding teeth.
Conserve bone density.
Reliable and high-functioning.
Permanent and very easy to care for.
