Dentures in Stoney Creek

What Are Dentures in Hamilton?

Dentures are a low cost and less invasive alternative to dental implants or crowns that are made to look like your natural teeth. Dentures are a fairly universal solution for those who have lost teeth or had decay that required extraction. They provide the function and aesthetics of natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods, and restore your confident smile.

Patients can opt for a partial denture, which is designed to fill small gaps or even individual teeth; or they can opt for a complete denture, which replaces teeth in the entire mouth. To learn more about Stoney Creek dentures or any other treatments we offer, contact our team at Gateshead Dental to restore your beautiful smile.

Getting Dentures in Stoney Creek

Dr. Rocci will start by taking impressions and measurements of your jaw and then work with a Denture Technician to create models for you to test before creating your new smile. Once adjustments are made, they will be created to fit your mouth properly so you can get back to enjoying your favorite foods and sharing your smile. The fitting process can take up to 3 to 4 weeks.

Dentures can take some getting used to, as eating and speaking will feel a little different, and at times may even feel loose. Not to worry, this usually lasts for only a few weeks until you become more comfortable with them. Sometimes our patients share that getting dentures in Stoney Creek helps with an increased feeling of stability, keeping a strong grip to the gums.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of getting Dentures?
Dentures provide a very good level of function for the patient. You will be able to enjoy your life being able to chew, talk, smile, and laugh. A full set of bright, beautiful teeth will give you a youthful smile. We look forward to helping you achieve a return to normal function.
What do Dentures feel like?
New dentures generally require minor adjustments to achieve that perfect final fit. While you are adapting to the feeling of your dentures we make every effort to ensure that your dentures fit properly. This is accomplished through adjustment appointments following the delivery of the final dentures until all issues are addressed to the complete satisfaction of the patient.
Will my Dentures last forever?
Dentures are made from a very strong plastic material that should survive and work well for up to 5 to 10 years. However, you should still be careful with your dentures, especially while cleaning or removing them from your mouth. Dropping your dentures can result in fracture of the denture base. While fractures can usually be repaired this will create additional costs and inconvenience.
How do I keep my Dentures clean?
Dentures should be cleaned daily to keep them from accumulating stains or debris. First, the dentures should be removed and rinsed in lukewarm water. Be careful to not damage the plastic or clasps.

While your dentures are out clean your mouth with a soft-bristled toothbrush. If you use a denture adhesive, clear the tissue-side of the denture of any remaining adhesive. Soak or gently brush the dentures with a non-abrasive cleanser to remove food, plaque, or anything else that may have stuck to the teeth. Rinse dentures well after using any kind of solution.

Avoid using abrasive cleaning materials (including stiff-bristled brushes, strong cleansers, etc.), toothpastes of any kind, products containing bleach, and hot water. Any of these things can damage or warp your dentures and using toothpastes can result in the discolouration of the pink acrylic denture base.

Can I sleep in my Dentures?
Whether or not you sleep in your dentures is a personal preference. However, nighttime is an optimal time to soak your dentures for cleaning. Dentures should be removed from the mouth for at least 4 hours out of every 24 hours. The oral tissues need an opportunity to breathe and rebound back to normal shape in order to maintain their health.
