If you are seeking partial dentures for yourself or a family member, the dental team at North Main Family Dental in Airdrie is here to make the process as easy as possible.
At North Main Family Dental, we provide superior solutions for patients with missing teeth. We offer traditional, immediate, and partial dentures, as well as denture relines.
If you have one or more of your own natural teeth remaining, then a removable partial denture can be considered. A partial denture replacement is made up of a gum-colored plastic base connected to a metal framework. This framework clips onto the remaining natural teeth to hold the denture in place in the mouth.
In some cases, a fixed bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, can also be considered as a treatment option when adjacent natural teeth are there to support the bridge. A dental “bridge” is considered permanent because it is cemented into place and is not removable. The advantage of the fixed partial denture is that it stays securely in place.
Yes, there are alternatives to dentures! Dental Implants can now be used to support permanently cemented bridges, thereby eliminating the need for a denture. In the case of a poor fitting full denture, dental implants can also be used to create better support for the denture.
Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for an implant-supported bridge or implant-supported denture. If you would like to explore the potential for implants supported denture solutions, we would be happy to discuss this with you during your denture consultation.
