Partials & Full Dentures in Grimsby, ON
Olive Street Dental and Dr. Amanpreet Kaur Sodhi understand that many patients have missing teeth. While most people may not mind having gaps in their smile, missing teeth can greatly affect your oral health.
Dr. Amanpreet Kaur Sodhi in Grimsby, ON, is happy to offer various cosmetic dentistry treatments to ensure both new and loyal patients have a beautiful and healthy smile. One of the most common services that can help with missing teeth is partials and full dentures.
Many people associate the term “dentures” with older individuals, but that’s simply not reality. Patients of all ages can get the benefits of partials and full dentures near you.
What Are Full Dentures?
Olive Street Dental has full dentures available for those missing several teeth on the top or bottom half of the mouth. For example, if you’re missing 12 teeth on the top half of your mouth and none on the bottom half, it’s better to get complete dentures.
Dr. Amanpreet Kaur Sodhi will create custom-made dentures that are removable. Our full dentures are made from either acrylic or plastic and will blend in with the rest of your mouth. They’re designed to fit comfortably and function as natural teeth would.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Our dentist may suggest partial dentures for patients with several natural teeth that are still in good shape. Partial dentures consist of a thin flesh-colored plate that has prosthetic teeth attached at the base.
Just like full dentures, partials are designed to custom-fit each patient. Similarly, they’re removable and should not be worn overnight.
The Dentures Process
Patients wanting full dentures can expect the whole process to take between two and three months. Partial dentures take a bit less time because they’re less complex to create. You’ll meet with our dentist to assess your current oral health. They’ll then fit your teeth and make a mold to be sent off to a third party.
Once the Grimsby dentist receives your dentures back, you’ll come in, and we’ll place them on you. During this time, you can have us adjust things to ensure they’re fitting comfortably and feel natural!
