Why it’s Time to Consider Dentures

October 10, 2022


If you’re missing one or more teeth, having them replaced as soon as possible is very important. Leaving an open space left by missing teeth can cause serious, long-term damage. Replacing the teeth will help maintain the bone structure in your face, keep the remaining teeth aligned, and reduce the likelihood of developing further oral health problems like gum disease.

Chances are you’ve investigated multiple replacement options and have learned that dentures are one of the most common, least invasive, and most cost-effective solutions.

What are dentures?

Dentures are a prosthetic device used to replace missing teeth and support the overall structure of the mouth and face. There are multiple types of dentures. These include removable dentures, permanent dentures, a single denture to replace one missing tooth, partial dentures to replace multiple missing teeth, or a full set of dentures for patients who need all their teeth replaced.

Why choose dentures?

There are many reasons why a person would consider dentures over other tooth replacement options. These reasons include:

  • They are cost effective

    Dentures cost far less than other tooth replacement options like implants, crowns and bridges.
  • They are easy to install

    Unlike many alternative options, dentures are not surgically installed into the mouth, making the process of getting dentures faster, more comfortable, and less painful.
  • They are custom made

    Like most tooth replacement options, dentures are custom made in a denture clinic in Oakville. To get started, your family dentist will take impressions to crate a mold of your mouth which will allow the denturist to build a set of dentures that fit your mouth perfectly. Custom-fit dentures will make it possible for you to eat and speak naturally and comfortably. Dentures can be made in any size and colour to blend in with the look of your natural teeth and maintain your pre-denture facial structure.
  • They are easy to care for

    Both permanent and removable dentures are extremely easy to care for. They can be brushed the same way you brush your regular teeth, keeping them fresh, clean, and free from plaque and bacteria. You can also use cleaning solutions that are specially formulated to kill the germs that often forms on both natural teeth and dentures.
