Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are artificial teeth that fit securely over your gums and remaining teeth. They're an ideal option for patients missing several teeth. Maple Leaf Dental offers both full and partial dentures.

Full dentures work best for patients missing all the teeth on their top or bottom jaw. Full dentures fit snugly over the gums, creating a tight seal that prevents your dentures from shifting during the day. Most full dentures are removable, but some attach to dental implants.

Partial dentures are an excellent option for patients who still have some natural teeth. These dentures are held in place by a structure that wraps around your natural teeth. Partial dentures can also attach to implants for added security.

Are dentures right for me?

If you're missing some teeth, you have many options for dental care. Dr. Giovanetti offers personalized consultations to choose a treatment that's right for you. 

Dentures are ideal for patients who can't undergo implant surgery. They can also be cost-effective and easy to use. If you prefer permanent replacement teeth, Dr. Giovanetti offers full mouth reconstructions, as well. This comprehensive procedure can replace several damaged or missing teeth. 

How are dentures fitted?

Dr. Giovanetti begins by taking a mold of your gums and remaining teeth. She designs your dentures to look like your natural teeth. During this process, Dr. Giovanetti asks for your input. You can help select the right shade and shape for your new dentures.

Your dentures are created in a high-quality dental laboratory. Each set of dentures is custom-made and designed to provide a secure fit. Once your dentures are ready, they're shipped directly to Maple Leaf Dental. 

Dr. Giovanetti checks to make sure your dentures feel comfortable in your mouth. If necessary, she makes last-minute adjustments. Dr. Giovanetti also explains what kind of maintenance your dentures will need.

How should I care for my dentures?

Dentures need special care. Maintenance recommendations can vary, depending on what kind of dentures you receive. During your final consultation, Dr. Giovanetti explains how to care for your customized dentures.

Maple Leaf Dental also provides on-site denture repair. During each exam, Dr. Giovanetti checks the condition of your dentures. If your dentures become damaged, she restores them.
