Dentures

At Norwood Dental Centre, our Winnipeg dentists use natural-looking dentures to replace missing teeth and the gum tissue around them. 

What are Dentures?

Dentures are artificial replacements that dentists use to replace one missing tooth, several in a row, or a whole jaw of missing teeth. Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain the structure of the face as well as talk and eat properly.

Types of Dentures

Partial Dentures

Your dentist will use partial dentures if you have more than a few missing teeth or your surrounding teeth are not strong enough to hold a bridge. They are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto your natural teeth.

Partial dentures can be made from a variety of materials including acrylic, vinyl (Valplast) and metal. At Norwood Dental Centre, we will discuss the material that will suit your situation best. You can remove them for cleaning and sleeping. 

Full Dentures

Commonly referred to as false teeth, your dentist will use full dentures if you have a whole jaw of missing teeth. They are held in place by suction and you can remove them for cleaning and sleeping. 

Conventional full dentures are fitted once any teeth that remained in the mouth have been extracted, and the gum tissue has completely finished healing. This usually takes 4 to 6 weeks.

Immediate full dentures are made in advance of the extraction process, and are fitted right after the teeth have been removed. Once the gum tissues heals, the dentist will adjust the dentures to ensure a snug, comfortable fit.

Implant Supported Dentures

Sometimes there is not enough gum tissue to hold and support full dentures. In these situations, implant supported dentures can help stabilize your dentures for a comfortable and secure fit. At Norwood Dental Centre, we would be happy to discuss this option.
