Burlington’s Denture Clinic
A denture is a removable dental appliance and a replacement for missing teeth. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and to enhance your smile.
Complete Dentures & Partial Dentures
Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth; it prevents other teeth from shifting. Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.
