Are you missing some or all of your teeth? We understand that you value your teeth as they not only allow a wonderful smile but also let you lead a normal way of life. However, you may lose a tooth to an accident or to some form of dental disease. Don’t worry! Dentures can restore your smile.
To help patients who have experienced such situations, Winnipeg-based Bronstein Family Dental offers great quality dentures. Dentures today appear more natural than they did in the past because of advances in dental technology. These are custom-made artificial teeth to replace missing natural teeth. These can be full or partial, meaning that they can replace an entire set or just a few that are missing.
Reach out to Bronstein Family Dental if you need more information regarding dentures in Winnipeg. We also provide general dentistry services such as teeth cleaning, fillings, and wisdom tooth extraction, among others.
Also known as ‘complete dentures’, full dentures are used when all of your natural teeth are missing. In this case, the denture supports a full arch of replacement teeth. Full dentures can be removed for cleaning as they are held by suction. The elderly are the common candidates for this kind of denture. Young patients may be candidates in cases where they lost all teeth from an injury or severe tooth decay.
A full denture includes a thin gum-coloured acrylic base laid on the gum tissue. The porcelain or acrylic teeth give the appearance of natural teeth. Although dentures are not designed to feel like real teeth, in cases where people are missing or need to replace the bulk of their upper or lower teeth, dentures do offer a number of advantages:
Support the lips and cheeks to help correct a collapsed facial appearance
Assist in chewing all types of food
Enable better pronunciation of words
Boost self-confidence in social situations
Permit easy removal for convenient cleaning and maintenance
For those patients missing one or more teeth on a particular arch, a partial denture may just prove to be the right fit. Also called ‘removable dentures’, partial dentures are created with artificial teeth that fit properly held by clasps attached to your existing teeth. This allows for a smooth, light feel. These dentures can be easily removed for cleaning at night after meals. Here are the reasons you can consider partial dentures:
Do not require surgery or modification to surrounding teeth
Provide a cost-effective tooth replacement option
More secure than a full denture when natural teeth are available for anchoring
Partial dentures are suggested for people who:
are missing teeth
need a custom tooth replacement solution
require a removable option for cleaning
have a restricted budget
We understand that your mouth and needs are unique. Our doctor offers a solution which satisfies your request.
Bronstein Family Dental is committed to helping maintain healthy teeth and gums for patients of all ages. We understand that not everyone is lucky enough to sustain a perfect set of teeth throughout a lifetime. If you or someone you love is missing teeth and could benefit from a dental appliance to help improve chewing, speech, and overall self-confidence, we invite you to contact our team. Not only will we assess the current state of your mouth, but we can advise whether a set of full or partial dentures is the right dental solution for you.
Historically, porcelain and plastic were the main components of dentures, but today, the hard resin is mostly used. Just like natural teeth, they need to be maintained and cared for. Although dentures are a great option to replace missing, natural teeth and are made of high-quality materials, they can experience wear and tear, and repairs or replacement may be necessary in time. As your body changes with age, your denture may also stop fitting properly, requiring the denture to be adjusted or replaced.
Natural teeth are what you develop as you grow up. You eat, smile and enjoy a youthful appearance with them. Despite the best efforts when making dentures, there is a chance that it might take a while for you to get used to them. Wearers almost always experience some awkwardness for the first few days when learning to eat and talk with them on, though this generally passes quickly as your jaw muscles and tongue get used to them.
Dentures fill up the spaces in your mouth left by lost teeth. This aids in preventing your face from sagging and returns fullness to the wearer's face.
As well-made dentures are tough, you will be able to consume all your favourite food as you once did. Dentures restore your ability to chew, opening up a world of food options that may have been lost to you!
When we lose our teeth, there is a marked difference in our speech. This can lead to self-consciousness when we hear ourselves speaking. As dentures almost perfectly fulfill the role of your lost teeth or tooth, any speech issue should be short-lived.
