Minimize the # of Visits for Your Dentures!
When starting the journey with new dentures, you can come to our office for 4 full hours, during which we will do your consultation, take the preliminary records/measurements, and do the fitting, lab work, and re-sizing. This will allow us to offer 2-3 appointments instead of 4-5.
Since we have the whole office to ourselves, you can comfortably wait here while enjoying free access to Wi-Fi & chilled water. With a well-equipped on-site laboratory in place, there will be minimal back and forth for you, as we will do the moulding of the prototype and readjustment while you are here.
You may have lost teeth due to an accident, gum disease or simply the natural effects of aging. Whatever the case, we have the denture solution for your needs! If you are ready to regain your smile, visit Swiss Denture Clinic in Calgary to get your complete dentures or call us and consult with our experts to determine the right dentures for you.
Complete dentures are also known as “full dentures”, “full plate” or “false teeth”. They work as artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. If you’ve lost all the teeth on your upper or lower arch, complete dentures can help you restore your smile.
Complete dentures are made by taking a mould of your teeth and are usually one of the following two types:
Immediate Dentures: Immediate or surgical dentures are prescribed when you need to have your natural teeth removed.
Conventional Dentures: Conventional dentures are made when you already have dentures in place, and you need to replace them because they are either damaged, worn out, or simply because you have outgrown or don’t like them anymore.
We offer surgical (or immediate) dentures to patients with specific needs. Our office creates the prosthetic prior to your tooth extraction surgery. We will then place the denture immediately after your surgery. If you have surgical dentures, we advise a 6 to 12-month plan of follow-up appointments to make sure your new teeth are working comfortably. We are happy to offer referrals to trusted dental surgeons operating in the Calgary area. You can check out our blog post to know more about what to expect from surgical dentures.
Conventional dentures are made after all your natural teeth have been lost or extracted, and only once your gums and jaw have healed entirely.
Both types of complete dentures are removable. You might need some time to get used to them and will likely feel sore at first, but adequately fitted dentures should be comfortable and allow you to enjoy life to the fullest.
As with natural teeth, tartar and stains can build up on your dentures' surface. We advise patients to brush their teeth as they normally would, but with a denture-specific toothbrush and low-abrasion toothpaste. We also suggest that patients use Renew™ to soak dentures and keep them odour-free.
You can read our blog post for some helpful tips, and keep in mind the following points to keep your denture clean:
At Swiss Denture Clinic, we offer in-house ultrasonic cleaning for stubborn stains that you are unable to remove yourself at home. This process combines ultrasound frequencies with cleaning solvents and polishing services to make your dentures look their best!
If you find any cracks in your dentures, we would advise you to take them to your denturist or specialist for repair at the earliest. Head to our blog to know if your dentures need to be repaired.
Caring for your dentures also requires annual visits to your dental clinic. Our bodies change with time, and our mouths are no exception. Because your mouth is constantly changing, it is important to adjust or reline your dentures from time to time to make sure they fit well.
Regular checkups will allow your dentist to examine your gums thoroughly and any natural teeth you may have for signs of decay or infection and take the requisite steps to treat and prevent further problems.
As with any aspect of your health, timely treatments and exams are the best solutions to cure and prevent serious diseases. Look at ourFAQs section for answers to some common queries from our patients. Give us a call to speak with our denturists and book your consultation appointment.
Don’t hesitate. Each day you suffer without a full set of teeth is another day of not eating, speaking, or engaging as you could. Swiss Denture Clinic wants to help you get the most out of life by finding the perfect denture solution for you, your budget, and your lifestyle. Besides complete dentures, we also offer implant dentures, immediate and partial dentures and denture reline and repair services in Calgary.
