What Are Full Dentures?

Full dentures are a special type of oral restoration that can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Typically, dentures are made of artificial teeth that sit on a pink acrylic base. By placing the base over your gums, it restores your ability to bite, chew, and speak. If you're unsure whether dentures are the right restorative option for you, our team is here to answer your questions and give you the information you need.

Some of the benefits of dentures include:

  • Restoring Functionality: When you have an entire arch of teeth missing, it makes it difficult to enjoy many of your favorite foods and pronounce certain words. Dentures help restore your smile's functionality and allow you to bite, chew, and speak as if they were your natural teeth.
  • Improving Aesthetics: Your smile serves as an extension of your personality, and when you have multiple missing teeth, it can negatively impact your self-confidence. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth and help you flash your smile confidently.

Crafting Your Personalized Denture Plan

When you visit our practice for the first time, our team will begin by asking you questions about your oral health. Do your remaining teeth cause you pain? Have you previously used dentures? Once we've gotten some preliminary information from you, we'll conduct an extensive oral exam. Our dentist can determine what type of denture meets your needs best by looking at the overall condition of your gums, jawbones, and remaining teeth.

Although one of our primary goals is to save your natural teeth whenever possible, extracting decayed or damaged teeth may be necessary to make way for your new North York dentures. Depending on how many of your teeth need to be extracted, we offer various denture options, including immediate dentures. For example, if you don't require extensive tooth extraction, we can provide you with a denture on the same day as your extraction. No matter what restorative option you settle on, our team will work to make your overall experience at our office as stress-free as possible.

Handling Your Repair & Relining Needs

It's important to remember that although your full dentures are durable and can withstand years of biting and chewing, they're susceptible to wear and damage. Whether your denture's artificial teeth are cracked or the lining of your dentures degrades, our team is here for you. We proudly provide skilled relining and repair services to help restore your dentures to look and perform their best. In addition, we can accommodate same-day repairs and relining whenever possible.

Dentures FAQs

At Skymark Dental Centre, we never want you to feel like you can't approach our team with questions about our dentures in North York. That's why we're available to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make confident oral health decisions. Some of the most frequently asked questions about dentures include:

How do I clean my new dentures?

Denture cleaning is straightforward. We recommend gently brushing your dentures with warm water daily. You should also remove and soak your dentures in solution overnight to help eliminate bacteria.

It's normal to feel some teething pain when you first receive your dentures. However, any discomfort normally goes away in the first week as your gums adjust to your dentures.

Dentures allow you to eat many of your favorite foods. However, there are certain foods that you should avoid eating to prevent damaging your dentures. For example, chewing gum can get stuck on the acrylic base of your dentures and break the seal, while eating nuts can damage your prosthetic. Our team will provide you with a detailed list of foods you should avoid eating when wearing your dentures.
